2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Priced In the Heart of Affordable Tesla Territory

From Motor Trend

Ford's all-new Mustang Mach-E shatters the mold for what you think a Mustang should be. It's electric, has four doors, and is a freakin' SUV! The Mach-E pushes against another, more mundane boundary, as well: It is relatively affordable, at least as far as sporty, electric crossovers go. A Tesla Model 3—yes, we know, a car—can be had for less than the least-expensive Mach-E, but the larger Model X crossover costs far, far more. So, until the similarly sized Tesla Model Y SUV appears, ford is in a space of its own.

Customers can now order their 2021 Mustang Mach-E, with deliveries slated to begin in the fall of 2020. There are three primary trim levels (Select, Premium, and GT), along with two special-edition models (California Route 1 and First Edition). Every version can be ordered with rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, except the California Route 1, which is rear-drive-only. Read on for a peek at each Mustang Mach-E and how much they will cost:

Select | Base price: $44,995

Output: 255 horsepower

Battery: 75.7 kW-hrs

Driving range (est. ): 210-230 miles

The entry-level Mustang Mach-E comes standard with rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is a $2,700 option. The extra drive motor bumps peak torque from 306 lb-ft to 417 lb-ft; no matter which driveline configuration is chosen, you'll get 255 horsepower. Only the "standard range" battery is available on the Select model, which translates to a 75.7-kW-hr battery pack that delivers an estimated 230 miles of driving range in the rear-drive model and 210 miles in the all-wheel-drive model.

Premium | Base price: $51,700

Output: 255-332 horsepower

Battery: 75.7-98.8 kW-hrs

Driving range (est. ): 210-300 miles

The mid-level Mustang Mach-E, like the Select, comes standard with rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive, is, again, a $2,700 option, and again, lifts peak torque from 306 lb-ft to 417; in either configuration, peak horsepower stands at 255 ponies. That's with the "standard range" battery, however. Step up to the 98.8-kW-hr "extended range" battery for an additional $5,000, and horsepower jumps to 282 in the rear-drive model, and 332 in the all-wheel-drive variant. The standard-range Premium models deliver the same estimated 230 miles of range (rear-drive) and 210 miles of range (all-wheel-drive) as the Select. With the extended-range battery, those figures jump to 270 miles and 300 miles. 

GT | Base price: $61,600

Output: 459 horsepower

Battery: 98.8 kW-hrs

Driving range (est. ): 250 miles

For the range-topping Mustang Mach-E GT, Ford whittles buyers' choices down to nil. Pick the GT, and you get 459 horsepower (a preliminary figure) and 612 lb-ft of torque, the larger 98.8-kW-hr extended-range battery, and all-wheel drive, standard. There will be an available GT Performance package, which has yet to be priced, that will chop the GT's 0-60-mph acceleration time from about 4 seconds (Porsche territory) to about 3.5 seconds. Driving range is estimated to be 250 miles.

California Route 1 | Base price: $53,500

Output: 282 horsepower

Battery: 98.8 kW-hrs

Driving range (est. ): 300 miles

Think of the Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 edition as something of a special, maximum-range model. It is equipped to match the Mach-E lineup's longest-range model, the Premium with rear-drive and the extended-range battery pack, and adds special aerodynamic wheel covers but otherwise makes do with slightly less content than the Premium. (It forgoes that model's Bang and Olufsen sound system, heated front seats, and hands-free liftgate, for example.)

First Edition | Base price: $61,000

Output: 332 horsepower

Battery: 98.8 kW-hrs

Driving range (est. ): 270 miles

Priced just under the Mach-E GT, the Mustang Mach-E First Edition is, as the name implies, a special-edition model celebrating the electric Ford's launch. It comes exclusively with the Premium model's extended-range battery (98.8 kW-hrs) and all-wheel drive, meaning it produces 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque and delivers an estimated 270 miles of range. The First Edition is spruced up with "First Edition" door sill plates, 19-inch wheels, red-painted brake calipers, heated front and rear seats, and a panoramic sunroof.
