2021 marks the first year in which Ford will be selling its Mustang Mach-E. This is the company's first all-electric SUV, and while it's not exactly like the traditional Mustang, it does share the same spirit and sportiness. Ford hopes that the Mustang Mach-E is going to be an instant hit as it enters the market. It's certainly going to be an intriguing choice for people who value performance, style, and efficiency.
There are several trims that people can choose from with the new Mustang Mach-E. The Select is the name of the base model, and it can come as either a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle. The California Route 1 model has a lot of extra amenities, like a panoramic roof and a memory system for the driver's seat. This trim, though, is only available with rear-wheel drive.
The top three trims are the Premium, GT, and First Edition. With the Premium, there's a choice of rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and the other two trims automatically come with all-wheel drive. In the Premium, there's a hands-free power liftgate, a heated steering wheel, and heated front seats. These are just some examples of the luxury amenities featured in this model.
Anyone who would like his/her next vehicle to be a more performance-oriented vehicle should check out the GT. This is the quickest Mustang Mach-E, and it will be able to compete well with any sports car or premium vehicle. The GT has seat upholstery, scuff plates, and other details that go along with this racing-inspired vibe.
At the top of the collection is the First Edition. This trim is polished in every way. For instance, it has brushed-aluminum pedals, unique scuff plates, and a 360-degree camera monitor. People who want to treat themselves to the best of what Ford has to offer will be pleased with the quality of the First Edition.
Performance and Range
The five Mustang Mach-E trims differ from each other in many ways. It may be best to devote an entire section to how much power they deliver as well as their range.
With the Select, drivers will get to take advantage of having 266 horsepower. Torque can be up to 428 pound-feet when all-wheel drive has been installed; otherwise, it's a bit more than 315 pound-feet. The Select has an estimated range of up to 230 miles, and this is an impressive distance.
Even more amazing is the California Route 1 trim. It has 290 horsepower and an estimated range of 300 miles. This gives people a lot of freedom, and it's hard to pass up getting a model with this kind of range.
The Premium also has the same amount of range and horsepower, if it's equipped with rear-wheel drive. If the Premium comes with all-wheel drive, it has more torque and nearly 350 horsepower. However, its range drops back down. It can travel 270 miles if the extended range package is purchased. The standard amount is 211 miles.
As mentioned, the GT is the most exciting Mustang Mach-E available. It comes with 480 horsepower, and it can have up to 634 pound-feet of torque. The tradeoff is that it's range isn't quite as high as it could be, but it's still respectable at up to 250 miles.
The refined First Edition can give drivers almost 350 horsepower and over 425 pound-feet of torque. Its range falls in the middle of the pack, at 270 miles.
Charging the Mustang Mach-E
This electric SUV can be charged at home. A mobile charger is included with every Mustang Mach-E, and customers are given the option of installing a more powerful outlet at their homes. This would make charging a much faster process.
To provide more specifics, here are some exact numbers. With a 120-volt outlet, the average rate is three miles of range per charging hour. This is ideal for people who can charge their vehicles overnight. When a 240-volt outlet is installed, the rate increases significantly to 20 miles of range per charging hour. The Ford Connected Charge Station, which also uses a 240-volt system, boosts the rate up to 30 miles per charging hour.
Every month, it seems, there are more public charging stations being installed at various locations around the country. It's becoming more convenient to charge vehicles in public stations, which have been installed in places like park-and-ride lots, municipal parking lots, and work locations.
As one would expect from a brand-new all-electric vehicle, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is packed with modern technology. It uses a SYNC 4A infotainment system that allows people to customize their experiences. The touchscreen isn't just any touchscreen; it's a massive 15.5-inch version that's so easy to read and interact with. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Wi-Fi capability are some of the standard features. There's also an available Bang & Olufsen audio system.
With the FordPass App, so much can be done. People can set up their smartphones to act as keys. If they don't want to take advantage of this feature, they can still use apps on their phones to remotely start their engines, open up their liftgates, roll down the windows, or give their climate systems a head start before they get in.The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has so many incredible features. It's definitely going to attract a lot of attention in its debut year.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Ford Mustang MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
