A few people have received the new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, most of which have not yet been delivered. That means we don’t have much information about the actual range for the new electric vehicle. The next round of Mach-E vehicles should be this week, but what do we know about the 2021 Mustang Mach-E range until then?

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency sets forth estimated mileages for electric vehicles. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-wheel-drive extended range model had an EPA estimated 270 miles. Edmunds testing revealed a 304-mile range, up 12.6% from the estimation.

Various trims offer different ranges. While most people have not had the chance to try out the range, it seems Edmunds has faith in the new Ford EV.

Car & Driver even gave the Mach-E the Editor’s Choice Award. With five seats and enough of a range to get to your destination without stopping for a charge. The 2021 version came with either a 75.7 kWh battery or the extended range version with 98.9 kWh.

“While it doesn’t drive or sound like Ford’s pony car, the Mustang Mach-E is an accessible and stylish EV,” Eric Stafford notes.

How much will the Mach-E cost?

The new 2021 Mustang Mach-E will start at $42,895. With the federal tax credit, that could come down to $35,395. There are a few different options for trims, as well.

The Select trim, noted at $42,895 above, has a standard range battery. It is a rear-wheel-drive vehicle but does have the option for an all-wheel-drive system. The range for the Standard trim is 230 miles.

The Premium trim starts at $47,000 and has the option for an extended range battery. It also has all-wheel-drive optional. The range for this option is also 230 miles. The standard range all-wheel-drive battery will run you an extra $2,700.

The California Route 1 trim starts at $49,800. It has an extended range battery and comes in rear-wheel-drive only. The estimated range is 305 miles.

How does this compare to other brands?

The 2021 Tesla Model 3 Long Range was supposed to get an EPA estimated 353 miles on a full charge. Based on the testing by Edmunds, the Model 3 Long Range went 345 miles. That’s a difference of 2.3%.

Some of the best-performing options weren’t even Tesla models. The 2019 Hyundai Kona Electric had an estimated 258-mile range but actually got 315 miles. That’s a 21.9% increase over the estimated range!
