The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a five-door electric crossover SUV produced by Ford. The vehicle was introduced on November 17, 2019, and went on sale in December 2020 as a 2021 model. The car won the 2021 North American SUV of the Year Award.
The Mach-E name is inspired by the Mach 1 variant of the first-generation Mustang.
Conventional door handles are absent on the Mustang Mach-E, and the vehicle instead features buttons that pop open the doors and a small door handle protruding from the front doors. Owners can use their smartphones as a key as well as a keypad built into the B-pillar.
The interior has a wide dashboard and built-in soundbar; the dash is equipped with a vertically mounted 15.5 in (39 cm) touchscreen infotainment system with a rotary dial fixed onto it. The majority of the car’s systems are controlled through the screen, which uses Ford's recent SYNC 4 operating system that can accept wireless updates. A 10.2 in (26 cm) digital cluster for the driver is also featured, while the steering wheel retains a number of physical buttons.
The Mustang Mach-E is built on the Global Electrified 1 (GE1) platform which is a heavily reworked version of the C2 platform that is used on the fourth generation Focus and third generation Kuga/fourth generation Escape.
The model will be launched with two battery pack sizes and three power outputs. The entry-level rear-wheel drive version is offered with either a 68 kWh battery pack driving a 266 hp (198 kW) motor or a 88 kWh extended battery pack driving a 290 hp (220 kW) motor. Both battery packs have a claimed 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 6.1 seconds or less and an EPA range of around 211 and 300 mi (340 and 483 km) respectively.
