The Ford Mustang Mach-E has the longest range of any electric SUV and a high-tech interior. Here’s everything you need to know about it…
When it comes to living up to a name, the new Ford Mustang Mach-E has one of the greatest. You see, the original Ford Mustang was such a hit that almost 22,000 of them were sold on the day it was unveiled at the 1964 World’s Fair. Buyers loved the idea of a family car with a big engine that didn’t cost the Earth to buy or run – and those attributes have contributed to the Mustang becoming one of the best-selling nameplates in the world. The Mach-E, however, is a very different type of Mustang.
2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E power and range
For one thing, it’s electric. It will be offered with a choice of two battery capacities and three power outputs, plus the option of four-wheel drive. Entry-level models come with a 75kWh battery and 255bhp, while the 99kWh model offers 282bhp as standard but can be boosted to 333bhp. How far you’ll get on a charge depends on which version you go for, but the Mustang Mach-E’s anticipated WLTP range varies from 260 to 370 miles. If you go for the bigger battery and stick with rear-wheel drive, then, the Mustang Mach-E should have the longest official range of any electric SUV.
As well as a long range, Ford is also promising performance that befits the Mustang badge, with the Mach-E able to reach 62mph from a standing start in less than seven seconds. Buyers wanting even more performance won’t have long to wait, either, because Ford has confirmed that a high-performance GT model will be coming later. For now, every Mustang Mach-E model is limited to 111mph.
