Introduction

What Car? says...

If we were to play a little word association game and say ‘Mustang’, how would you respond? Perhaps the words ‘muscle car’ would spring to mind, or even ‘Motown. But we don’t expect you’d come back with ‘electric’. And why would you? For over half a century the Mustang formula has remained virtually unchanged; its muscular styling, lumbering V8 engine and simple, rear-wheel-drive layout have proved to be an extremely popular combination with car enthusiasts the world over. 

The car you see here, however, is a very different type of Mustang. Called the Mustang Mach-E, it represents Ford’s first step into the electric car market and comes in the shape of a four-door SUV – how very ‘on-trend’. That means its main rivals include the Audi E-tron, Jaguar I-Pace and Mercedes EQC

While some may throw their hands up in the air in disgust at the very thought of an electric SUV wearing the Mustang badge on its nose, Ford is keen to point out that the Mach-E is still a true Mustang and not an imposter; that’s why it features a number of design elements inspired by the two-door muscle car, such as its tri-bar tail-lights, long sloping ‘hood’ and fastback roofline. And in true Mustang style, buyers also have a plethora of options that will allow them to create a car that suits their particular need: when it comes to ordering your Mach-E you can choose between two battery capacities (badged as Standard and Extended Range); three power outputs; plus the option of four-wheel drive. 

If you go for the bigger battery and stick with rear-wheel drive, your Mach-E should have the longest official range of any electric SUV. We’ll be putting those claims to the test in the near future.

As well as a long range, Ford is also promising performance that befits the Mustang badge, with the four-wheel drive, 99kWh version advertised as being able to reach 62mph from a standing start in just 5.8 seconds. And if that’s not quick enough for you, Ford has confirmed a couple of high-performance GT and GT Performance models will be coming later – the latter with a claimed 0-62mph time of just 3.5 seconds. That should be enough to give the Tesla Model 3 a bloody nose. 

Stay with us over the next few pages and we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the Ford Mustang Mach-E, including what it’s like to drive, how practical it is and how it compares to its closest rivals. And, if you fancy taking the plunge, head on over to our New Car Buying service to put one on your driveway with no effort whatsoever.
