The highly anticipated 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is the first ever zero-emissions mustang to ever be introduced to the automotive market. Ford revolutionized the AV market with the introduction of their new EV mustang at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. The First Edition, retailed for $61,000 has already sold out in only nine days. Ford has not said how many vehicles they will be making, but according to a Ford press release, there are a “limited quantity” of Mustangs to be released.
Although the new Mustang Mach-E is branded with the classic Mustang logo, the car has been revolutionized from the inside out. The Mach-E has two available battery sizes and rear or all-wheel drive. The Mach-E boasts a 300-mile driving range and seats up to five people. The car also features an impressive array of technology including an infotainment system for all your driving needs. The MachE premium includes ultra fast charging capabilities, 19-inch heels, a panoramic sunroof, a power liftgate, and a Band & Olufsen sound system.
When it comes to the powerhorse behind the car, Ford went above and beyond to provide the most impressive motor yet. The 2021 Mustang Mach-E is available in two different battery power options: standard-range (75.7 kWh) or an extended range (98.8kWh). Ford claims that the new Mach-E will go from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds. This extreme engine power sounds a lot like that of Tesla. The GT model features 459 Horsepower and 612 1b-ft torque.
The Mustang Mach-E is Ford’s first crossover to be completely electric. The name “Mach-E” pays homage to the classic “Mach 1” moniker often seen on vintage high-performance Mustangs. According to Ford, they chose the name “Mach-E” because they wanted the car to sound electrified. Speaking of electrification, the Ford Mach-E comes out of the box with a Ford mobile charger that can add up to 30 miles of range per night with a 120-volt outlet and up to 80 percent of battery life overnight with a 240-volt outlet. A Ford charge station can also be ordered online and installed by certified electricians, with the ability to replenish 32 miles per hour and recharge the battery overnight.
Although the 2021 Mach-E has not yet been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the SUV is available with driver assistance technology including forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist. The vehicle also comes with different warranty packages including Limited (covers 3 years of 36,000 miles) Powertrain (covers 5 years or 60,000 miles).
All in all, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is looking to be a great success for Ford. The Mach-E is just one of the many new Electric Vehicles hitting the automotive market in the near future.
