Ford promised us “Mustang-inspired” styling for its new all-electric SUV, but we didn’t expect it to actually slot into the Mustang range. Sure enough, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E is the zero-emissions crossover version of the pony car we never knew we wanted. Divisive in its styling, you’ll either love it or you’ll hate it, but there’s no denying that Ford has committed.
Gone are door handles, replaced with e-latch push-button releases; the Mustang two-door inspires three-section headlamps and taillamps, as well as some aggressive sculpt-lines on the doors and hood. A cunning double roofline gives the look of a Mustang’s swoop at first glance, while actually hiding a far higher roof for better interior headroom.
There’ll be five versions initially, going all the way up to the potent Mustang Mach-E GT. That’ll do 0-60 in mid three seconds, Ford teases. Other versions will have up to 300 miles of EPA estimated range, though that – along with power figures – will depend on whether you choose RWD or AWD, and the Standard Range or Extended Range batteries.
