First of all, we will provide a little background information about the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. It begins at about $42,895. It’s available with a standard range 75.7 kWh battery or the extended range 98.8 kWh battery pack. 

It has an EPA-estimated range of between 211 to 305 miles and is available in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The sporty GT and GT Performance models pump out 480- hp and up to 634 lb-ft of torque. Lower trim models provide between 266 and 346 hp and 317 to 428 lb-ft of torque. The GT model can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. 

A Ford mobile charger comes with the Mach-E. It can add up to 30 miles of range per night with a 120-volt outlet and up to 8 percent battery life overnight with a 240-volt outlet. A Ford charge station can be ordered online and replenishes 32 miles per hour with the ability to recharge the battery overnight fully. 

How does the Mach-E perform? 

According to The Smoking Tire, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E serves as a spacious and comfortable option. Their Mustang Mach-E review covers what it’s like to live with this EV for three months. 

One drawback that is mentioned early on is the lack of support in the seats. The seats have a racing design, which skimps out on padding and lumbar support. However, the Mach-E is spacious. Taller people can fit comfortably in the front and back. 

The Mustang Mach-E includes a 15.5-inch touchscreen that receives over-the-air updates. The system connects easily with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. But it did freeze a few times with incoming phone calls. The phone key app was also prone to freezing. They only give you one car key, which limits driver profiles. So people of different sizes have to adjust the settings and driving modes each time they decide to take the Mach-E for a spin.

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E delivers a sporty experience with responsive and confident handling. The acceleration is peppy, and there is never a shortage of power. Also, the one-pedal driving feature with regen keeps the battery charged. 

One pleasing aspect involves the suspension. The shocks and springs have been specifically tuned to deliver a smooth ride. But sometimes, it’s a little slow to dampen rough bumps. Unless you’re used to luxury cars, the stiff ride shouldn’t be noticeable. 

They had the long-range all-wheel drive model that achieves the EPA-estimated 270 mile range. Cruising at 85 miles per hour doesn’t drain its juice. They don’t suffer from range anxiety and plug their Mach-E in at home about once a week. They rarely use public chargers. 

So far, their experience with the Mustang Mach-E has been fabulous. The Smoking Tire plans to provide another Mustang Mach-E review around the six-month mark. We can’t wait to see how this EV holds up.
