Overview

Neoscore* 73%
Pros**
  • Lots of fun to drive
  • Impressive WLTP range
Cons**
  • Not really a handsome car

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.

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.

autoexpress[3]

Sentiment Score[*] 67%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Cabin is spacious, with the flat floor contributing to decent amounts of room for five adults. Even our test car's panoramic glass roof didn't leave six-footers in the rear seats feeling-changed. The response from the right-hand pedal is immediate – as you might expect from an EV – but not startlingly aggressive.

Pros[**]
  • Sleek, refined design
  • Impressive range
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons[**]
  • A bit too aggressive
  • Not the most fun to drive

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. Standard equipment is generous with a substantial 15.5-inch touchscreen. Other creature comforts include heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a smartphone charging pad, adaptive cruise control and front and rear parking sensors.

Pros[**]
  • Competitively priced

autoexpress[5]

Sentiment Score[*] 61%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
In Extended Range AWD form the Mustang Mach-E offers impressive range. That's key for an EV at this price point, but while the styling will turn heads (and maybe split opinion) some of the quality could be better. Plus, although performance is strong and the handling delivers an element of fun, the ride is just a little too firm.

Pros[**]
  • Impressive range
  • Big battery
Cons[**]
  • Stylish styling
  • Tough to control

autoexpress[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 73%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following[***]:
High kerbweight, at 2,273kg, means from a standstill it takes a little coaxing, while the thump also tails off at higher speeds. But at anything from town to motorway velocity, the Mach-E GT is more than rapid enough. Chassis is just compliant enough, with enough suspension travel to soak up smoother, more flowing bumps sweetly.

Pros[**]
  • Punchy powertrain
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive handling
Cons[**]
  • High weight
  • Not the most fun to drive

carmagazine[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following[***]:
The Mach-E has twin motors pumping out a combined 480bhp and of course AWD. Turn in is fine for such a large car, although the rack is a little slow. Traction from the bespoke 245/45 Pirellis is supreme. Even the biblical torque can't unstick it properly on a hairpin bend.

Pros[**]
  • Fun to drive
  • Fantastic performance
  • Great battery life
Cons[**]
  • Cheap to buy
  • Not the most fun to drive

cnet[8]

Sentiment Score[*] 86%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
The Mach-E's interior is mighty pleasant, with supportive front seats that aren't so tight as to be uncomfortable for more Rubenesque occupants. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Waze integration are all included, as is a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Charging comes by way of two USB ports (one Type-A, one Type-C) per row.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful infotainment system
  • Fantastic cabin tech
Cons[**]
  • Lack of mechanical bits

pcmag[9]

Sentiment Score[*] 87%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Mach-E comes with a $7,500 federal credit, making it one of the more affordable options compared with the Audi e-tron, the Tesla Model Y, the Volvo Polestar 2, and the Volvo XC40 Recharge. Ford's Sync 4 infotainment system is easy to operate via the touch screen, but there are also some physical controls, such as a volume knob. The Bang & Olufsen sound system available on the Premium trim sounds stellar.

Pros[**]
  • Vibrant styling
  • Powerful performance
  • Impressive battery life
Cons[**]
  • Lack of advanced driver assist features

theverge[10]

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
Reviewers from theverge have found the following[***]:
The Mustang Mach-E is Ford's first all-electric vehicle. The company is trying to make it easier for owners to charge their cars. But it's a hit-or-miss experience that's difficult to navigate. Ford is combining a lot of these networks into what it has dubbed the “FordPass Charging Network.

Pros[**]
  • Stunning design
  • Fantastic battery life
  • Easy to drive
Cons[**]
  • Charging network is a bummer
  • Not the most comfortable to drive

Sentiment Score[*] 81%
Reviewers from tomsguide have found the following[***]:
Ford's planned semi-autonomous Active Drive Assist package has not yet been released. It will work much like GM's Super Cruise, allowing for complete hands-free driving on 100,000 miles of previously mapped divided highways. The Bang & Olufsen premium sound system does an excellent job delivering vocals.

Pros[**]
  • Comfortable ride
  • Smart infotainment
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons[**]
  • No adaptive cruise control
  • Lane keeping assist is too passive
