One of the first things to love about the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is its acceleration. Most EVs have a quick jump off the line, but the Mustang Mach-E’s is more pleasant. Consumer Reports gives the new Mach-E a perfect 5 out of 5 in acceleration. CR points to the EV’s healthy “giddyup” that doesn’t “snap your head back” like the Tesla Model Y.

So, how quick is the Mach-E? This EV has the heart of the Mustang, jumping from 0 to 60 in a zippy 5.3 seconds. The CR team also says the Mustang Mach-E surges forward effortlessly, which is equally satisfying.

In addition, the “Unbridled” mode — one of three settings offering “simulated engine noise, sharper throttle response, and firmer steering” — provides a more exciting ride.

2. The Mustang Mach-E’s superb handling puts the driver in control

The CR team also loves the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E’s handling, putting the driver in control of the experience. Steering is quick, and riders won’t feel the body lean through corners.

This EV also delivers the “taut and agile” handling that fans expect from the Mustang nameplate. Edmunds compliments the handling, calling it “sporty,” especially on the GT trim.

3. Consumer Reports loves the whisper-quiet cabin and electric motor performance

Another perfect 5/5 score the 2022 Mustang Mach-E earns from Consumer Reports involves noise. And in most driving scenarios, the Ford EV stays “impressively quiet” without hardly a sound from the electric motors.

This crossover SUV also feels more like a sports sedan, and you’ll forget you’re driving electric. It even has regenerative braking for a single-pedal experience. And drivers can slow to a complete stop simply by removing pressure from the accelerator.

4. The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E earns green status

The fourth thing to appreciate about the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is its eco-friendly powertrain. Bearing Consumer Reports’ “Green Choice” designation, the Mach-E earned the highest scores in fuel economy, greenhouse gas emissions, and smog ratings. But it doesn’t sacrifice performance or driving dynamics to be green. Ford has successfully married the Mustang’s spirit with eco-friendly engineering.

And depending upon the configuration — including drivetrain and battery power — drivers can expect impressive range and horsepower. The standard battery provides 70 kWh with 247 miles of range and 266 hp. The Extended Battery range jumps to 91 kWh, increasing to 314 miles and 346 hp, Motor Authority reports.

The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is an exciting EV offering plenty to like. The above four points are just four aspects Consumer Reports loves most. To know what you’ll enjoy most will boil down to test driving this electric pony for yourself.
