It is the first “Mustang” branded electric vehicle Ford manufactured and launched to the market. It offers up to 294 HP with the single motor, and 351 HP with the dual motor options.

Design and Features
Ford Mustang Mach-E has a sort of coupe-like roof line, giving it a sporty profile. Headlights and taillights are very similar to the ones on the newest Mustangs. But front side of the Mach-E does give away its electric secret because Ford designed a nose that almost completely closed for efficiency reasons. It looks smooth and gives the car a unique look. The vents low down can also be opened and closed automatically depending on whether the battery system needs cooling or not.
Interestingly, no sign of any Ford logo on the exterior side, as Ford consistently points out that even though it has an electric drivetrain and battery power, Mach-E is a Mustang. They wanted to emphasize the true identity of the car by not including any blue oval emblem.
Ford uses very sophisticated door handles in the Mach-E. Driver’s side includes a numpad for keyless entry and a small handle that helps pulling the door open. When the door first opened, a kickstand prevents the door from closing, in order to avoid injuring your fingers. Because there aren’t any normal looking door handles on the rest of the vehicle, there are only buttons and people tend to hold the edge of the door to pull it open. The reason of the door handle-less design is simply aerodynamics. Ford wanted to create one of the most aerodynamical vehicle on the market, achieving that will give the American car maker a chance against the highly popular electric SUV Tesla Model Y.
Thanks to the long hood and the lack of big oily combustion engine, there is enough space for a 100 liters frunk on the front. Space in the back seats is also not bad either.
Mustang Mach-E has a 15.5-inch portrait-oriented infotainment display, on top of the lower third of the vehicle there is also physical know for controlling volume. Ford chose a Bang & Olufsen sound system for the electric Mustang, sound experience is above average as some real-world tests claim.
Mach-E’s Interior Quality Better Than VW ID.4
Ford is beating the Volkswagen ID.4 with its interior quality. There is not much hard plastic, instead Blue Oval uses fabric texture on the dashboard and most of the areas around the driver and passengers are covered with soft materials that look cooler than hard plastic stuff.
There is a really large wireless charging pad below the big display, you can easily put your smartphone there and never bother finding your USB cable and plugging your phone.
Range and Charging
Ford has Standard Range and Extended Range battery options available with the electric SUV. Standard Range option offers 75.7 kWh energy capacity, it is enough for a 440 km range with RWD, and 400 km with the dual motor Mach-E. These models only support 115 kW DC charging speeds, from 10 percent to 80 percent will take 38 minutes.
With the 98.8 kWh bigger battery, RWD and AWD Extended Range models have 610 km and 540 km of range respectively. Mach-E GT, on the other hand, can travel 500 kilometers on a single charge with the same battery. Extended Range and GT versions of the Mach-E support 150 kW DC charging, 10 to 80 percent charge in 43 minutes.
