Review

We'd definitely keep it cheap with the Mustang Mach-E and stick with the entry-level Standard Range RWD. That's still not as good as the Tesla Model 3 or Volkswagen ID.4. The abrupt ride is a disappointment, but it's still a decent, well-equipped car offering good value. The more expensive versions have a longer range, and the GT is the best to drive and most comfortable in the line-up, but there are much better cars for the money.

The entry-level Standard Range RWD model (our pick) has LED headlights, privacy glass, blind-spot warning, traffic sign recognition, two-zone climate control, heated front seats, a heated windscreen, a heated steering wheel, a 15.5in touchscreen infotainment system, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, wireless phone-charging, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and keyless entry. The Standard Range AWD adds larger 19in wheels, red brake calipers, adaptive LED headlights, piano-black exterior highlights and eight-way electrically adjustable driver and passenger seats.

The entry-level, rear-wheel-drive Mach-E is our pick. The 68kWh (useable) standard range battery and motor set-up produces a respectable 265bhp and will officially take you 273 miles on a single charge – we made that 211 miles in the real world. And it's quicker than a Volkswagen ID.4 Pro Performance, turning out 0-62mph in 6.9sec. The all-wheel-drive version has the same power and accelerates quicker (0-62mph in 6.3sec) but its range drops to 248 miles.
