Having come out as an all-new vehicle just last year, we expect the Ford Mustang Mach-E to be a carryover vehicle for the upcoming 2022 model year. Despite the lack of changes, the Mach-E continues to carry the torch as Ford’s most high-tech vehicle and is the brand’s entry into the expanding world of electric vehicles.
The current Mach-E came out in 2021 as an all-new electric crossover. Sharing design elements from the Mustang, the Mach-E looks like one of the more athletic EVs on the market. A four-door Mustang with a crossover silhouette may be sacrilegious to some, but the Mach-E pulls it off with an aggressive, grille-less front end, slim headlights, and a high hood line. The sloping roofline that leads into an integrated roof spoiler is hard to miss, as are the sequential taillights. The Mustang’s pony badges are found throughout the body, while the lack of door handles and wide rear haunches give the Mach-E its sporty edge.
On the inside, the Mach-E ditches its sporty background for a high-tech, upscale look. Higher trim levels match luxury EVs with classy materials and a screen-heavy layout. Despite the athletic exterior design, the Mach-E feels spacious and airy on the inside, offering roomy seating for up to five. Thanks to its EV powertrain, the Mach-E offers a generous amount of cargo space. With the rear seats in place, the Mach-E has 30 cubic feet of cargo space, which expands to 59.7 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. The crossover’s front trunk offers an additional 4.7 cubic feet of cargo space that has a drainage system and cupholders for extra versatility.
Every model of the current Mach-E comes with a 15.5-inch touchscreen that’s vertically oriented and a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster. The massive touchscreen is running Ford’s latest SYNC 4A infotainment system, with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Wi-Fi hot spot, cloud-based connectivity, voice recognition, a wireless smartphone charger, six audio speakers, and navigation as standard.
The 2022 Mustang Mach-E will come with Ford’s Co-Pilot360 Assist 2.0 suite of advanced safety features as standard. The bundle includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, lane departure warning, and rear cross-traffic alert. Ford’s hands-free driving system, which is called BlueCruise is standard on the CA Route 1 and Premium trims.
There are two main battery sizes for the current Mach-E:
The Standard Range battery pack comes with a 68-kWh battery with either rear- or all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel-drive models come with a 210-kW electric motor that makes 255 horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel-drive models feature a 50-kW electric motor at the front of the crossover, on top of the rear 210-kW motor for a combined output of 417 pound-feet of torque. AWD models can travel up to 210 miles.
The Extended Range battery pack features an 88-kWh battery that brings either 282 hp with RWD or 332 hp with AWD. The GT trim with the Extended Range battery is rated at up to 480 hp and 634 lb-t of torque. Range is rated as low as 235 miles for the GT Performance Edition and as high as 305 miles with the California Route 1.
Pricing & Release Date
The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E doesn’t have an arrival date yet. Currently, Ford’s website claims that consumers are looking at waiting at least 16 weeks for the Select and California Route 1 trims, at least 24 weeks for the Premium and, at least 28 weeks for the GT. The wait times for the Select, Premium and California Route 1 trims are for new orders, while the GT’s wait times are for non-reservation orders.
We expect pricing for the 2022 Mach-E to remain close to the current model’s range of $43,995 (with destination) up to $66,000. The Mach-E is eligible for the full $7,500 federal tax credit and the majority of state plug-in rebates.
