Overview

Photo of Ford Mustang Mach-E
  • Superb electric powertrain
  • Lots of fun to drive
  • Excellent range
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

Ford's standard range Mach-E gets 68kWh of usable battery capacity and a claimed WLTP-certified range of up to 379 miles. The 88kWh extended range version takes that up to 273 miles. The car's dashboard has a version of the "double-bubble" design made so famous by Mustangs over the years, but the interior is otherwise wholly un-Mustang-like.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Sentiment Score[*] 65%
Reviewers from Arstechnica have found the following[***]:
Ford's new battery electric vehicle definitely has mindshare. The vehicle still offers the familiarity of the Mustang name and some of the sports car's design cues. The Mach-E is a crossover with a 4.8-second 0-60mph time and an EPA-estimated range of 270 miles.

  • Impressive electric powertrain
  • Excellent range for a five-door crossover
Cons[**]
  • Can't charge at home right now

Sentiment Score[*] 64%
Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The new Mustang Mach-E is a high-rise, four-door crossoverish hatchback. It comes with a choice of either one motor or two; a bigger drive battery or a slightly smaller, lighter one; and with up to 379 miles of WLTP-certified range. It's not the killer of Ford's V8 pony car icon that so many might fear, but rather the perfect modern sidekick for it.

Pros[**]
  • Bigger, more usable V8
  • Lots of fun to drive
  • Excellent range
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

autoexpress[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 71%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Mustang Mach-E is Ford's first all-electric SUV. Priced at just over £41,000, the range is split into rear- or all-wheel-drive models. Power outputs range from 265bhp for the Standard Range cars, through to the 290bhp RWD Extended Range model and the top-of-the-range AWD Extended Range version.

Pros[**]
  • Competitively priced
  • Lots of standard equipment
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons[**]
  • Expensive for an all-electric SUV
  • Alternatives offer more range

autoexpress[4]

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The Mustang Mach-E is a superb effort as a first bespoke pure-electric vehicle. It's a worthy alternative to the Tesla Model 3 and forthcoming Volkswagen ID. But if anything, this first taste of a top-end model has us yearning to experience the cheaper, rear-wheel-drive edition. It should offer much of the same kerb appeal along with greater range and even better value.

Pros[**]
  • Class-leading electric power
  • Excellent range
  • Good value
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

carmagazine[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from Carmagazine have found the following[***]:
All first edition models (like our test car) of the Mach-E are already sold out. Standard or Extended Range versions, both available with either rear- or all-wheel drive. Prices start at just over £40k before the plug-in car grant has been applied.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive range of electric options
  • Fantastic infotainment system
Cons[**]
  • Punchy steering
  • Lack of driver-assistance tech

cnet[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 80%
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is a lovely little EV that speaks of great things to come. The instantaneous electric torque makes for exciting starts, but it's not enough to rip your toupee off your scalp. Magnetorheological adaptive shocks are on the docket, but only for the upcoming GT.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful enough to overwhelm the rear end
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Easy-to-use touchscreen
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

pcmag[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 85%
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
Ford is angling to ride the wave of transformation to electrification. All trim levels are equipped with an 88.0-kWh battery pack and two electric motors. Ford's charging network of 13,500 third-party stations can be accessed through its proprietary app. Co-Pilot360 suite of advanced safety features comes standard on every trim.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful V8 engine
  • New-gen Sync infotainment system
  • Comfortable ride
Cons[**]
  • Lacks standard driver-assistance features

theverge[8]

Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from Theverge have found the following[***]:
Ford could have chosen any number of options for its first mass market EV. Besides being reasonably fast, the Mustang Mach-E is fun to drive. Ford can roll out as many 1,400-horsepower variants as it wants to show off what electric cars are capable of.

Pros[**]
  • Fun to drive
  • Comfortable ride
  • Good range
Cons[**]
  • Lack of touchscreen controls
  • Lacks wireless CarPlay

tomsguide[9]

Sentiment Score[*] 65%
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
The all-wheel-drive (AWD) four-door came with the extended battery. It endured rutted country roads, life-sapping urban congestion, and endless highway miles with ease. The fully digital LCD displays include a gauge cluster for the driver and a large 15.5-inch central touchscreen.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful all-wheel drive
  • Easy-to-use infotainment system
  • Good range estimates
Cons[**]
  • Lacks standard driver assistance features
