Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Ford Mustang Mach-E

John Diether
Automotive Editor - November 9, 2020
  • 2021 Mustang Mach-E available for order
  • No cash offers expected
  • New balloon loan option resembles leasing
  • Get APR from 0.9% for 48 months

New kind of Mustang:

The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is an electric-powered crossover with styling borrowed from the Mustang coupe. Ford has been taking orders for the debut trim levels: Select, Premium, and California Route 1.

The GT model is scheduled to go on sale next summer. Ford is currently converting reservations for the GT into official orders.

Leasing isn't available on the Mach-E, but Ford is offering a balloon loan option with some features of a lease.

Offers from Ford vary by region and are available through January 4, 2021. Ford often enhances incentives ahead of Black Friday weekend, but we don't expect to see anything extra on the Mach-E.

Potential savings:

The Mach-E is selling close to MSRP in most areas. Pricing appears more favorable in California and other zero-emission states.

Like most Fords, the Mach-E is eligible for Ford Plan Pricing for employees, suppliers, and affiliated companies.

What about leasing?

Ford isn't offering leases in the 2021 Mach-E, but the new Ford Options Plan works somewhat like a lease. Under the program, the buyer gets a balloon loan through Ford Credit for 36 or 48 months to purchase the car.

The monthly payments are lower than a regular loan because a large portion of the loan is due at the end of the term in a single balloon payment. The buyer can make the final balloon payment and keep the car, or transfer ownership to Ford for satisfaction of the balance.

Unlike a lease, the buyer remains eligible for any applicable EV tax credits. However, the interest rate can be higher than a regular loan, and the balloon can be substantial. Review the terms carefully before you sign.

Snag a low rate:

Ford has already rolled out promotional rates on 2021 Mach-E. Your choices are 0.9% for 36 months, 1.9% for 48 months, 2.9% for 60 months, and 4.9% for 72 months.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Overview

Anthony Sophinos
Automotive Editor

What's New

The all-new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is as polarizing as it is fast. It wears the revered Mustang nameplate, but is an all-electric, all-wheel-drive crossover – about as distinct as you can get from a rear-wheel-drive, V8-powered sports coupe.

Yet, a properly equipped Mustang Mach-E will have no trouble doing 0-60 mph in under four seconds and have cornering prowess to boot. Mustang-derived styling and Tesla-esque levels of connectivity round out the package.

The Mustang faithful, of course, will cry bloody murder; the idea of a Mustang as an electric crossover remains tough to fathom. But the Mach-E deftly blends technology, performance, and panache in a way no other electric crossover has managed this side of a Jaguar I-PACE.

Choosing Your Ford Mustang Mach-E

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is offered in four trims: Select, Premium, California Route 1, and GT. Pricing begins at $44,995 including destination for the Select and climbs to $61,600 for the GT. All models will qualify for the $7,500 federal EV tax credit.

Engine Choices

The Mach-E is available with two different batteries: Standard Range or Extended Range.

The Standard Range is a 68-kWh battery that's offered with rear- or all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive means a single 210-kilowatt electric motor between the rear wheels, which is expected to bring 255 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. AWD models add another 50-kW electric motor up front, which brings torque to 417 lb-ft. While EPA ratings have yet to be announced, Ford is projecting 230 miles of range with RWD or 210 miles with AWD.

The Extended Range is a 88-kWh battery. It's expected to bring 282 hp with RWD, or 332 hp with AWD. In the GT trim, it brings 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque. Range is ballparked at 300 miles with RWD or 270 with AWD, but it falls to an estimated 235 miles in the GT.

The Select comes standard with RWD and the Standard Range battery, with AWD a $2,700 upgrade. The same goes for the Premium trim, but it's also offered with the Extended Range for $5,000 more (RWD) or $7,700 (AWD). The California Route 1 is only offered with RWD and the Extended Range battery, while the GT only gets the Extended Range and AWD.

Going from 0-60 mph is a five- to seven-second affair for most models, but the GT can do the deed in less than four seconds.

With a 150-kW DC fast charger, 61 miles can be regained in 10 minutes. Normal charging on a 120-volt household outlet is a much more modest three miles per hour plugged in. Upgrade to a 240-volt outlet and that improves to 21 miles per hour of charging.

MPGe ratings have yet to be published by the EPA. For an idea of what to expect, consider that the I-PACE electric crossover is rated for 76 MPGe combined, the Tesla Model X for 93 MPGe combined, and the Tesla Model Y for 121 MPGe combined. That's about the end of the list for sporty electric crossovers.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Mach-E is four-door, five-seat crossover. Despite the swooping roofline, there's still 38 inches of front and rear head room, and rear leg room is a generous 38 inches.

The cargo area is good for 29 cubic feet behind the rear seat or 59.6 cubic feet with the rear bench folded. That's somewhat underwhelming for a 186-inch long crossover.

The Ford Edge, for instance, is just 2 inches longer but has 39 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats and 75 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. The Model Y is also more capacious than the Mach-E, while the I-PACE trails it slightly.

Safety Features

Every Mach-E comes with Ford's suite of active safety features. Branded as Co-Pilot360 Assist 2.0, this collection of features includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, rear parking sensors, and post-collision braking.

The Premium and California Route 1 add an automated parking system and a surround-view camera.

Most models also come standard with the adaptive drive assist prep kit, which includes the necessary hardware for an upcoming hands-free, semi-autonomous highway driving option. The software for this won't be available at launch, but once available can be purchased and downloaded via an over-the-air update.


Ford has gone full Tesla with the Mach-E; that is, the experience here is as much about an all-encompassing, tech-heavy interface as it is about visceral performance. Driving that point home is the 15.5-inch touchscreen that occupies the center stack. All physical switches for the radio and climate control settings have been eliminated in favor of the rectangular, vertically-oriented touchscreen.

The touchscreen is running the Latest Ford Sync software, version 4A. Embedded in the system is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, navigation, cloud-based connectivity, and voice recognition. Ford is also rolling out over-the-air updates that allows owners to download system improvements, upgrades, and fixes over the internet.

Also standard on the Mach-E is wireless phone charger and a phone-as-a-key feature. The latter is exactly what it sounds like: owners can use their smartphones in lieu of an actual keyfob to do everything from unlocking the doors to activating the remote start.

Select - From $44,995

The Mach-E Select comes equipped with an eight-way power driver's seat, fabric upholstery, 18-inch wheels, a 10.2-inch all-digital instrument cluster, as well and all the aforementioned tech and safety features.

The two primary option packages are the $2,300 Comfort/Appearance Package and the $2,600 Comfort/Technology Package. The former includes 19-inch wheels, a foot-activated liftgate, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and memory seats and mirrors; the latter includes those amenities, skips on the bigger wheels, and also adds a surround-view camera, automated parking, and the adaptive drive assist prep kit.

Premium - From $51,100

Moving into the Premium adds LED lighting, 19-inch wheels, a 10-speaker Bang and Olufsen audio system, an eight-way power passenger's seat, and a panoramic fixed-glass roof. All the equipment found in the Select's Comfort/Tech Package is standard as well.

There are no options outside of battery size, drivetrain, and color.

California Route 1 - From $52,900

The CR1, which will be available late in 2020, is only offered with the Extended Range battery and rear-wheel drive. It gets the extra safety equipment that's standard in the Premium but the amenities of the Select. Exclusive badging, a panoramic roof, and power-folding mirrors are also standard.

GT - From $61,600

The flagship of the Mach-E lineup is the GT, which won't be available until the summer of 2021. It comes standard with all-wheel drive and the Extended Range battery, but is tuned for performance rather than efficiency – there's 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque on hand, while range tumbles to 235 miles.

Standard equipment reflects its place in the lineup. It gets 20-inch wheels, unique upholstery with contrasting stitching, and red brake calipers. It also gets all the features included with the Premium.

CarsDirect Tip

If range is your biggest concern, get the California Route 1. It costs $3,200 less than a comparable Premium with the same battery and motor count. Otherwise, a Select is the best value in the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E lineup.
