The All-Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV: The Complete Guide

Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E

Overview


Michigan based, Ford Motor Company, the US automotive manufacturer, stepped firmly into the fast evolving electric vehicle (EV) race with the unveiling of its ‘new breed of Mustang’, the all-electric Mustang Mach-e sport utility vehicle (SUV), ahead of the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Though Ford had commenced work on an electric vehicle model a few years ago, CEO James Hackett ‘pulled the plug’ and sent everyone back to the drawing board. Early indications suggest that the strategy to start afresh on creating a more compelling plug-in electric vehicle (EV) may have worked for Ford. The Mustang Mach-e is part of the US$11.5 billion Ford investment into electrification by 2022.  The company aims to become a leader in clean transportation and become carbon-neutral by 2030. 

Ford is hoping to leverage the iconic status of the ‘Mustang’ marque to make up for its late entry into the battery-electric vehicle (BEV) sector.  Competitors from both, the traditional automotive sector and new entrants are already well ahead in the race. Munich based Volkswagen Group and California based Tesla Inc, are two such examples, well on their way to market domination in the zero-emission race.  

The other plug-in electric vehicles in the Ford portfolio include the Ford Kuga PHEV and the Ford Tourneo Custom PHEV.

The All-Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV


The all-electric SUV was launched to much pomp and show in LA in November 2019.  Determined to show its confidence, Ford chose an aircraft hangar close to the operations of SpaceX for the launch. SpaceX is another undertaking by the Tesla co-founder Elon Musk.

This is the first non-sports car to use the Mustang marque. The name has been inspired from the Mach 1 variant of the first-generation Mustang. The all-electric SUV Mach-e went on sale in December 2020 and has already won the prestigious North American SUV of the Year Award. The Mach-e is manufactured at the Ford plant in Mexico but is also expected to be manufactured in China. The pure electric five-door Ford SUV is built on a brand-new EV architecture (Global Electrified 1: GE 1).  

Ford is hoping to build success on the legacy of the Mustang internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle. Early indications suggest that the all-electric Mustang SUV is well positioned to succeed. Though the price is higher than other cheaper electric SUV’s, the build quality, specifications, interior space and electric performance of the Mach-e SUV does make it a good choice for consumers seeking to migrate to zero-emission electric driving.

The SUV EV is available in two battery options: 98.7 kWh (Extended Range) and 75.7 kWh (Standard Range). The Extended Range (ER) can add up to 73 miles every 10 minutes (150 kW DC charging) and can be charged 10-80% in 45 minutes.
