Vehicle Preview: 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E
The Ford Mustang has a 55-plus-year legacy of inspiration born from the drive to excite. The desire to bring drivers exhilaration without emissions led Ford to innovate yet again, and the result is the all-new 2021 Mustang Mach-E. The latest member of the Mustang stable, the Mustang Mach-E delivers the performance that you’d expect from the legendary pony car while lessening your carbon footprint.
Go further and forget about fuel
Range anxiety is a real impediment for some looking into all-electric vehicles, but the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E poses no such stress. With an extended-range battery, the new Mustang Mach-E is expected to deliver an EPA-estimated range of 300 miles, making it one of the most capable all-electric vehicles on the road.* Even if you opt for a higher-performance version like the Mustang Mach-E GT, Ford expects a range of up to 250 miles on a single charge.
Adding to the convenience of the Mustang Mach-E is the fact that your purchase includes two years of access to the FordPass™ Charging Network, which boasts more than 12,500 charging stations and 35,000 charge plugs around the country, as well as a standard Ford mobile charger for home use. Ford anticipates an estimated charging time of 45 minutes to go from 10 to 80 percent battery capacity using a DC fast-charging station. This means you won’t need to block out huge amounts of time in your trip to charge up if you’re heading cross-country. With the ability to map your trip based on charging locations, you’ll never find yourself wondering about the next best time to stop in the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E.
Earning the pony emblem
To earn its spot as an official part of the Mustang family, the new Ford Mustang Mach-E had to deliver performance chops on the same level as the best-selling sports coupe. With the available Mach-E 4 all-wheel-drive system, Ford anticipates that the Mustang Mach-E GT will deliver a 0-60 mph time faster than that of a Porsche Macan.** With AWD and the extended-range battery equipped, the Mustang Mach-E is targeted to deliver 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque, making it more powerful than the 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost®.
Ramping up the performance aspect to yet another level, Ford will offer two high-end iterations of the Mustang Mach-E focused on delivering superior driving dynamics. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, with standard all-wheel drive and extended-range battery, targets an output of 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque and a 0-60 mph time of under four seconds. Upgrading to the GT Performance Edition knocks the 0-60 time down to the mid-three-second range, putting it on par with the Porsche 911 GTS.***
