2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review

  • Larger 98.8-kWh battery pack should provide 300 miles on a charge
  • Decisive thrust of a pure EV
  • New Sync 4A infotainment allows for multiple driver profiles
  • Upcoming GT Performance version boasts 459 horsepower
  • Infotainment system is menu-heavy and takes time to learn
  • All-new electric SUV
  • Choice of rear- or all-wheel drive and two battery sizes
  • Available hands-free automated driving system
  • Launches the first Mustang Mach-E generation for 2021

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E may not be the fastest or most affordable electric vehicle out there, nor does it have the most range. It is, however, what Edmunds considers the best in the luxury EV class. Wait, luxury? Yes, we're classifying it among traditional luxury brands because of its mid-$40,000 starting price (before tax breaks and incentives). But the Mustang Mach-E also proves itself worthy in several other areas too.

This is the first Ford to be designed specifically as an electric vehicle — there will be no gas-powered version or even a hybrid. Roughly the same size as a Ford Escape or Porsche Macan, the Mustang Mach-E blends typical SUV proportions with some characteristic Mustang styling details. We were initially skeptical about Ford using the Mustang name, but the driving experience is enjoyable enough for the Mach-E to earn that badge.

Key rivals include the Audi e-tron, Polestar 2, Tesla Model Y, Volvo XC40 Recharge and Volkswagen ID.4. But it's so good that we suggest checking it out no matter what type of EV (or quite frankly, non-EV) you're in the market for. Check out the in-depth evaluation categories of our Expert Rating to learn more.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
It's a Mustang! It's an SUV! It's the all-electric Ford Mach-E! We didn't know what to expect when we heard Ford was cooking up an electric Mustang SUV, but we're certainly glad it exists. With engaging driving performance, no tailpipe emissions and over-the-air software updates on a huge center touchscreen, the Mach-E drives and looks like a car of the future.
The Mach-E may be a wagon-like SUV, but it delivers the speed and agility you'd expect of anything wearing a Mustang badge. We tested a Mach-E in the Premium trim with the extended-range battery and all-wheel drive. At the Edmunds test track, it zipped from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. A few rival EVs are a little quicker (the Tesla Model Y, for instance) but overall the Mach-E, at least the version we tested, is pleasingly quick.

Ford tuned the handling dynamics to make even this all-wheel-drive SUV feel more like a rear-wheel-drive sport sedan. Around turns, it's playful and engaging. You'll feel a lot of body movement in transitions, but it's composed and stable.

In typical driving, the Mach-E delivers a buttery smooth experience. The regenerative braking effect works well and allows for one-pedal driving, which means you can slow down to a complete stop just by taking your foot off the accelerator. We actually prefer doing this than using the brake pedal; it's a little vague and grabby, making it hard to stop smoothly in typical driving. We hope Ford can improve the tuning with a future over-the-air software update.
Highlights include a suspension that excels at soaking up large bumps in the road, a cabin that's well insulated against wind and ambient noise, and an excellent and easy-to-use climate control system. The available seat and steering wheel heaters get toasty pretty quick, though we'd welcome the option of seat ventilation for warmer climates.

The seats are pretty comfortable, with padding that feels as soft and cushy as memory foam but breathes better. But the seats lack a few key adjustments, such as a lower thigh cushion extender for longer-legged drivers. There's very little lateral support holding you in place. Unfortunately, seats with more adjustments are not available.
Ford's latest Sync 4 infotainment system, specifically the one designed for the Mach-E's 15.5-inch central touchscreen, is one of our new favorites. Menus are easy to navigate, and there's a handy shortcut bar that's continually updated based on the last functions you used. And unlike the Tesla Model Y, the Mach-E also has a 10.2-inch digital drive cluster that displays pertinent info that's right in the driver's line of sight.

There's ample space for passengers more than 6 feet tall to sit in front and back. Despite the Mach-E's fastback roofline, visibility is surprisingly decent, and climbing into and out of the cabin takes little effort. The Mach-E's push-button door releases are pretty cool and work well, though we wonder how robust they'll be over time.
The Mach-E nails its interior tech. We like the big 15.5-inch center touchscreen that's supported by physical controls, such a volume knob. Unlike the Model Y, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration is present and also wireless (though you can still connect through USB cord). Ford's onboard navigation system is responsive and cleanly designed, but not so overly minimalistic like some competitor systems.

The Premium trim includes an excellent 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system that creates a rich sound environment, with access to AM/FM and XM satellite radio. Our tester also included a comprehensive suite of advanced driver aids including adaptive cruise control, lane centering, blind-spot monitoring and 360-degree cameras. It was an early production prototype, so we did experience some issues with a few of the aids being unavailable, but the ones that worked worked very well.
The Mach-E's hatch-style trunk helps maximize cargo space. Ford says there's 29 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. That's not as generous as the Model Y, especially underfloor. There is, however, a very clever flexible cargo cover that attaches to the rear hatch and swings up out of the way or can be removed completely. Adding to the Mach-E's cargo capacity are the split rear seats that fold. The front trunk is a bit small but has a drain hole, allowing you to use it as an ice-filled cooler that can be drained later.

Up front, a two-tiered console offers plenty of storage options for your personal items and makes the front cabin look more spacious. The side door pockets are a decent width but short on height. A wireless charging pad ahead of the cupholders looks like it will accommodate two phones, but it's really only big enough for one.

Got little kids? The child safety seat anchor points are located behind slits in the seatback. They're not as visible as the Euro-style Isofix anchors but provide OK access.
The range estimate for an all-wheel-drive Mach-E with the extended-range battery is 270 miles with an efficiency of 37 kWh of battery power used per 100 miles. Both of those figures are average for a luxury EV.

In Edmunds' real-world range testing, the Mach-E was more efficient, using 33.1 kWh per 100 miles (remember that with an EV the lower the figure, the better). It also outperformed its EPA-estimated range, going 304 miles on a full battery. Most EVs have exceeded their EPA estimates in our testing, with the notable exception of Tesla's vehicles.

Ford says the Mach-E can add up to 61 miles in as little as 10 minutes, or go from 10% to 80% battery charge in 45 minutes, with a 150-kW DC fast charger. Ford is also selling its own Connected Charge home charging station. Similar in concept to Tesla's Wall Connector, it's a high-powered charger that you can use to add up to 30 miles of charge per hour.
Unlike Tesla, Ford's EV credits have not yet run out, meaning the potential discounts on the Mach-E make it a pretty attractive deal. Build quality feels solid overall, and the cabin is beautifully trimmed in a style that feels reminiscent of Scandinavian design. If not for the typical Ford switchgear that appears on the steering wheel and doors, you might think you were in a Lincoln.

Ford's warranty is a bit less generous compared to luxury makes but isn't that far off. Coverage lasts for three years/36,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper and five years/60,000 miles for the powertrain. Electric components are covered for eight years/100,000 miles including retention of 70% or more of the original high-voltage battery capacity.
When Ford announced it was building an electric Mustang SUV, most of our team scoffed at the idea. Somehow the designers managed to pull it off. The Mach-E resembles a Mustang and yet is very practical. Ford also did well to include some driving personality in the way the Mach-E attacks corners. It's surprisingly fun on a curvy back road. Some EVs can be bland, but not this one.

Which Mustang Mach-E does Edmunds recommend?

Figuring out the Mustang Mach-E's trim levels and configurations can take some time. There's no bad choice, but we suggest going with the Premium trim. It comes with lots of convenience and luxury features and gives you the most flexibility in picking a powertrain. The standard battery should be fine for most EV owners, but you'll want to get the extended-range battery if you're thinking of doing some long-distance driving.

5/5 stars, Welcome to the future!
Ken H,
Premium 4dr Hatchback w/Standard Range (electric DD)
Actually, mine is a Premium with the extended range battery. Picked up the car earlier this week and could not be more impressed. It’s light years ahead of anything I have driven and my last car was a 2019 Ford Energi with ever option. Build quality, performance, etc are top of the charts. Ride is firmer than the Fusion or my previous Volvo XC60. Only negative, had to educate the dealer about some of the available rebates. Highly recommend this vehicle. Ford knocked it out of the park!!
5/5 stars, Well worth the wait!
Dan C,
Premium 4dr Hatchback w/Standard Range (electric DD)
I reserved my car in Jan 2020. A little more than a year later and I have one of the best vehicles I’ve owned, ever. This car is incredibly well put together. The seats are supple yet well bolstered. The fit and finish is among the best I’ve seen in recent years. The tech is user friendly but does have a learning curve. The sound system is more than adequate. As far as driving goes, I find this car to be extremely engaging. I haven’t driven it enough to really extoll all of its virtues but man am I having fun so far! This car is a blast and it’s worth every penny. Only downside I can see is you can’t run to your Ford dealership today and get one. Oh well, like I said, it’s worth the wait.
5/5 stars, Best Luxury EV - Checks all boxes
Mach E owner,
Premium 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Standard Range (electric DD)
We went with a Red Mach E premium that was sitting in the showroom. This car looks amazing and has everything we needed. It proved to be the one that impressed us to upgrade to an electric vehicle. Tesla - Compared to the Teslas this might be slower and have less range but looks light years cooler than any Tesla hands down. Audi eTron - just didn't feel right not sure exactly what. i think it is the interior and the gadgetry in the audi - uncomfortable seats - expensive - too much going on - was turned off. VW ID.4 - just doesn't seem like it will ever arrive, interior looks childish compared to Mach E Mach E all the way
5/5 stars, Worth the Wait
Baldeagle47,
First Edition 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Extended Range (electric DD)
We have wanted an electric vehicle for some years. First descriptions of the Mach E were very appealing so we reserved our First Edition the first day available (November, 2019) We were told we were the first delivery in our locale, one month ago. We were immediately impressed by the good looks and very happy with the interior finishes. The seats are particularly comfortable and there is ample room in the back seat. I am tall, but no problem with headroom. There was a learning curve for all the electronics, as we never were even passengers in all EV, and not too technically savvy, but it was not excessively long. Handles very well. We haven't traveled any long distance so range has not been an issue. I was particularly impressed when a Lexus driver got out of his SUV to stop and take a picture of my Rapid Red Mach E.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E videos

ALISTAIR WEAVER: A few weeks ago, we published the results of our Edmunds' EV range test based on real world driving. They were startling. While some brands-- most notably Tesla-- failed to hit their official EPA figures, others such as Porsche dramatically overperformed. You can read all about it at edmunds.com/range. Not surprisingly, the results generated plenty of debate. And Tesla were quickly on the phone. Their engineers argued that we'd underestimated the real range. Even when they indicated range at zero, they said, there's still a safety buffer. And this buffer they reckoned. And Tesla would hit its EPA figures which are measured when the battery's spent. It sounded like a challenge. So we headed to a top secret test facility in the Mojave Desert to find out what happens when you run an EV to a stop. In this film, we're going to reveal the results and more importantly explain what they mean to you, the EV consumer. Here's our head of testing, Jonathan Elfalan, in the desert. JONATHAN ELFALAN: So we've gathered arguably the most important EVs of the moment. We've got the Ford Mustang Mach-E. We've got the Volkswagen ID.4. And we've got the Tesla Model 3. All three of them have been provided to us by their manufacturer. But we also brought along the Model 3 and the Model Y that we used in the original test because we own them. These are real cars that we paid real money for. We've plugged these cars in overnight. They sat on the chargers. They charged to full capacity at the same ambient temperature. And we've installed GPS base data loggers from industry experts Racelogic. And we're going to use those data loggers to accurately measure distance. We actually set the tire pressures overnight. We've allowed them to come to temperature. And now, we've aired them down to the exact specification from the manufacturer that appears on the door. We're basically running these cars to manufacture spec with full batteries. And this is basically the most controlled that you can get. And now, we're going to drive these cars all into they stop. [MUSIC PLAYING] So it's a 7.5-mile oval. And we're doing one hour driver stints. All the cars are going out in 30-second gaps. So they're running all at the same time. They're hitting all at the same time. For every single step, the car will be driven by a different driver so that it's not one driver in each car so that every driver or every car gets a fair shake at this. And by driving the cars at a constant 65 miles an hour up until they reach zero, everything is normalized. So it's a completely level playing field. [MUSIC PLAYING] ALISTAIR WEAVER: That's actually my wife's car. She's so pleased we're putting miles on the lease. When the indicated range is zero, all of our cars were running at 65 miles an hour. JONATHAN ELFALAN: I'm pulling off to the gravel right now. Volkswagen completely dead in the water. [MUSIC PLAYING] - Hey, look at that. It's playing a little dance song because your car stopped. And now you're stranded. Just reached 0 miles an hour. I'm at marker nine. ALISTAIR WEAVER: With the main batteries dead, each of the cars are for just enough power and that 12-volt batteries to get them onto the recovery truck. After all of that, we headed back to the office or at least our home offices and crunched the numbers. Here, we're going to give you the headlines. But if you want all the details, head to the article at edmunds.com/teslachallenge. First, we took a look at how long each car was able to sustain 65 miles an hour after their onboard computers registered to 0 miles of range. Jonathan, why 65 miles an hour? JONATHAN ELFALAN: Well, we picked 65 miles an hour because it's a safe highway speed. And if a vehicle isn't able to maintain that at a minimum, then it probably shouldn't be on the road at that point. ALISTAIR WEAVER: So should we get into the first results? Drumroll please. [DRUMS] So here we go. In reverse order, the Mach-E went an extra 5.8 miles. The ID.4 went 9.4 miles. The Model Y performance, 10.3, the Model 3 Standard Range Plus, 12.6. And topping the list, the Model 3 Long Range, 22 miles. Then we looked at the total distance they traveled after it indicated zero until they literally ground to a halt. So here it goes. Mach-E, 7.3 miles. ID.4, 12.9. Model Y, 12.6. Model 3 Standard Range Plus, 17.6, Model 3 Long Range, 25.9. Well these results showed was a big disparity not only between the different brands, but even between the Teslas themselves. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Right. So the Model 3 Long Range in the test went over double the distance of the Model Y. Now, we're aware that age may play a factor here. Our Model Y performance has just over 10,000 miles on the odometer versus the Model 3 Long Range which is brand new. 400 miles was built just before the test. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Literally the week before, right? JONATHAN ELFALAN: Literally a week before the test. But to be honest, the size of the gap was still a little bit of a surprise. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Certainly was. Now, to give Tesla every chance of success, we decided to run a control test on our Edmunds EV Range Loop in Southern California. This time, we took along both the Model 3 Long Range that Tesla provided and our own Model Y Performance. We run both to the end of the battery life on real roads. This time, the Model Y managed 11 miles past 0. And the Model 3 long range, 17.3. But that's actually less than the results we achieved at the test track which was even more of a surprise, Jonathan. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Right, so our assumption was that a vehicle would consume more energy maintaining a speed of 65 miles an hour than it would to travel on city streets which would result in a shorter buffer or reserve range. So we put these results to Tesla. We said that the buffer is a combination of near past conditions and instantaneous conditions. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Which means, presumably, what's just happened and what's happening now if you're not an engineer. Right? JONATHAN ELFALAN: Correct. So for these reasons, a buffer cannot be determined to a number exactly every time. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Right, so there is no fixed buffer. JONATHAN ELFALAN: There's no fixed buffer. ALISTAIR WEAVER: In a Tesla. JONATHAN ELFALAN: No. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Got it. The other interesting thing about that Tesla, as well, though, then we reran our Model Y performance. We got exactly the same range figure as we did when we originally tested it last December. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Yeah, I mean, it was a nice validation of our methodology. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Right. So where does all this leave us? Well, let's go back to Tesla's original claim that we were underestimating the car's real range because we weren't including the buffer and that if we added the buffer, they would hit the EPA figures. So taking all our newfound knowledge, let's look at the Edmunds EV range table. So which Tesla is now hit the EPA range? JONATHAN ELFALAN: Well, the Model 3 Long Range and Model S performance I think we can safely say yes. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Model X Long Range, kind of a maybe? JONATHAN ELFALAN: Maybe, maybe not-- not sure. ALISTAIR WEAVER: I'm definitely no. JONATHAN ELFALAN: Model 3 Standard Range, Model 3 Performance, and the Model Y Performance-- definitely no. ALISTAIR WEAVER: Our conclusion is there for a bit-- yes, no, maybe. But then honestly, it's all a bit academic. In the real world, which is what we all really care about, you'd be crazy to tell your EV even within 10 miles of predicted range. Not only might you get stranded, but running to extremes can also do damage to your battery. JONATHAN ELFALAN: There's a reason why Tesla and other manufacturers recommend only charging to 90% or less on a regular basis. ALISTAIR WEAVER: The Edmunds EV range test is all about offering a useful real world alternative to the EPA's more laboratory-based approach. We don't pretend it's perfect. And if you live in a cold climate or drive aggressively, don't expect to match our figures. But it's based on the hundreds of thousands of miles we're now done in EVs. We do believe it's a good approximation of what you might hope to achieve in everyday life. The fact that most Teslas don't match their EPA rating in our tests, well, just about every other manufacturer comfortably exceeds theirs doesn't make a Tesla a bad choice-- far from it. But what it does tell you is that in such an emerging market, not everything is quite what it seems. And you can't just rely on the government figures. There's certainly much more to come from us on this subject. So if you want to follow the story, subscribe to our YouTube channel, and head to edmunds.com/range for all the latest test results. And, of course, comment below. I'm 100% sure that many of you will. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
