The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium All-Wheel Drive has won AAA’s Best Overall Car for 2022. The Mach E Premium is one step up from the base Mach E, which is the Select, and slots just below the California Route 1 package. AAA recognized the Mustang Mach-E for its power, its spacious cabin, and its fun-to-drive quotient.
And customers are recognizing it, too. In its recent sales report, Ford said sales were 23% through the month of April. The Mustang Mach-E five-seat crossover has won a slew of other awards.
What are the Mustang Mach-E specs?
The Mach-E seems to be infinitely customizable. You want a rear-wheel-drive? Four-wheel-drive? A GT suspension? A luxury package? An all-white cruiser? Ford’s electric architecture can be customized in any number of ways.
The basics are that it comes in five flavors, Select, Premium, California Route 1, GT and GT Performance and Mach-E Ice White Edition. Ford offers two different battery options, a standard range that offers 247 miles of range, and an extended-range battery that offers up to 312 miles of range.
From there, it gets confusing because each package can come in several power ratings: 266, 290, 346 or 480 horsepower. Power ratings depend on which wheels power the car, which battery pack you pick, and which package you pick. All Mach-Es hold five passengers. While the Select and Premium cars weigh 4,318 pounds, the GT and GT Performance editions weigh up to 4,989 pounds due to different battery packs and the all-wheel-drive systems. They can all hold about 30 cubic feet of storage in the back, or almost 60 cubic feet behind the first row, and 4.7 cubic feet of stuff in the frunk.
How much does a Mustang Mach-E cost?
Ford Mustang Mach-Es start at $43,895 for the base Select with a standard range battery and all-wheel drive. The AAA-award winning Premium is a step up. Not only is the Premium more expensive, at $48,775, but you can order the extended range battery with 346 horsepower and 303 miles of range. It can be ordered with a B&O sound system, heated seats and steering wheel, and an upgraded interior.
From there you can get the Route 1, that starts at $52,450, and the Mach-E GT that starts at $59,900, or the EGT Performance that is almost $70,000. The performance cars are trying to channel the vibes from the legendary Mach 1 Mustangs.
Ford also offers a ton of options packages that include driver safety aids, appearance packages, and more.
But that’s only if you can find one at your local dealer. Ford’s official Mach-E website says: “Due to high demand, the current model year is no longer available for retail order.”
How fast does a Mustang Mach-E go?
They also come in quick, quicker, and quickest. the GT Performance Edition can hit 60 miles per hour in about 3.5 seconds. The Select, according to Ford does the same sprint in 5.2 seconds, while the Premium does it in 4.8 seconds.
Overall the top speed is 124 miles per hour, or up to 200 mph if you get a special edition.
