Ford has officially announced the biggest change to the Mustang in the model’s history—literally—with the 2021 Mustang Mach-E. The Mach-E debuted November 17, 2019 before it becomes available at some point in 2020. Prices for the Mustang Mach E will start from $43,895 for the Select model and go to $60,500 for the top-of-the-line GT edition. It will also feature a limited run First Edition.
The Mustang Mach-E will be available with both rear- and all-wheel drive configurations and power outputs will range from 255 to 459 hp. The 333 hp AWD versions will be able to tackle the sprint to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds while the range will vary between 230 and 300 miles for the RWD models. Meanwhile the AWD Mach-E will be capable of covering 210–270 miles between charges. According to Ford, when hooked up to the 150 kW DC charger, the Mustang Mach-E will gain 47 miles worth of charge in 10 minutes.
Potential buyers can now put a $500 refundable deposit down on Ford’s official site. The SUV is Ford’s first all-electric model and will be a part of the 40 electrified car lineup set to debut by 2022. As per the plan, the company will invest $11 billion into electrification and will be looking to debut no less than 16 pure electric and 24 hybrid vehicles by 2022.
Ford Mustang Mach-E Pricing
The Mustang Mach-E will be available in five trims initially: Select, California Route 1, Premium, GT, and First Edition. The Select is the base trim and prices will start from $43,895 while the Premium is priced from $50,600, California from $52,400, GT is priced from $60,500 and the limited-run First edition will be priced from $59,900.
All trims will be available with RWD and AWD configurations except the First Edition which will be available as an AWD only and the California Route 1 which will be available only with RWD. The California trim will also feature the highest range of 300 miles on a full charge.
Ford Mustang Mach-E Features
The Mustang Mach-E will feature a cabin to rival the Teslas on the roads with a large 15.5-inch touchscreen at the center of the dash with another screen displaying the vehicle vitals behind the wheel. The main unit features a physical control dial, though Ford is also making lots of noise about the infotainment’s machine learning and voice recognition. The Mach-E will be able to remember drivers’ preferences based on a connected smartphone app; the app will even double as a key. Also like Teslas, the Mach-E will be able to receive over-the-air performance and feature updates: Ford has teased a hands-free driving (riding?) experience.
