Specifications of Ford Mustang Mach-E 75.7 kWh (258 HP) AWD

General characteristics of Ford Mustang Mach-E 75.7 kWh (258 HP) AWD

It's true that the main benefit of an electric powertrain is instantaneous torque on a whim. But a low center of gravity and even weight distribution are also plusses. In the Mach-E, these aspects help deliver 0-60 in as little as 3.5 seconds in the GT Performance Edition and 6.1 seconds in the California Route 1. But depending on which spec you choose, the waters get very muddy. The Mach-E can be had with either RWD or AWD and either standard range (SR) or extended range (ER) batteries, meaning power outputs, range, and acceleration all vary wildly from one model to the next.

The base Select, for example, has 266 horsepower, but either 317 lb-ft (SR RWD) or 428 lb-ft (SR AWD). The California Route 1 (ER RWD only) has 290 hp and 317 lb-ft. The Premium can be had as an SR (266 hp) with RWD (317 lb-ft) or AWD (428 lb-ft) or as an ER variant with RWD (290 hp) or AWD (346 hp). The First Edition packs 346 hp and 428 lb-ft into an ER AWD package, while the GT boasts 480 hp and 600 lb-ft, or 634 lb-ft in Performance Edition guise.

The claimed electric range of each model also varies substantially, with no fewer than six claimed EPA estimates. The two battery systems contribute to this, with Standard Range models receiving a 68 kWh pack while the Extended Range is equipped with an 88 kWh unit. The best range of the lot is attained by the California Route 1 at an EPA-certified 305 miles, while SR AWD Select and Premium models net the worst figures of 211 miles, or 230 miles in RWD form. For those who opt for a performance-based derivative, the GT Performance Edition still bags 235 miles, the standard GT a figure of 250, and the First Edition a 270-mile effort.

Regardless of battery choice, all Mach-Es are capable of 120V, 240V, or DC fast-charging capabilities, the latter up to rates of 150 kW (115 kW on the Select).

On a quick autocross course, the Mach-E was surprisingly responsive, rotating itself around the orange cones like a true horse showing off its athleticism around a patterned reining course. Under hard acceleration and braking, the Mach-E has a very neutral bias in its weight transfer - there's very little sloppiness here. On the rolling hilly roads on the outskirts of Ann Arbor, Michigan, the AWD Mustang Mach-E Premium with the extended range battery behaved as if it summoned the spirit of the late Ford Focus RS: it might not embody the raucous boy-racer hatchback that the EcoBoost-powered Focus RS once was, the Mach-E can nevertheless juke and cut and dart through winding roads like something much less its size. This is in no small part thanks to the low center of gravity.

Ford doesn't exactly plan to enter the Mustang Mach-E in motorsport, but we've experienced the potential of this platform first hand riding shotgun in the Mustang Mach-E 1400 with Vaughn Gittin Jr. This suggests there may be more to come from the Mach-E, and a Shelby derivative down the line would certainly be something special.

Continuing to draw comparisons with the Tesla Model Y, the massive tablet-style touchscreen in the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E can be easily be critiqued for aping the Tesla, but the truth is that it's a far more complete system when looking at what's coming out of Fremont these days.

The one swing-and-miss here in our opinion was the naming of the driving modes. When's the last time you've heard anybody use the word "Unbridled?" Or use "Engage" to describe a default setting? And how will Ford dealers hope to communicate these modes with customers who are wondering why the company couldn't settle on something simpler? At least the graphics look nice. This is in no small thanks to the new electrical architecture in the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which allows for crispy camera resolutions, sharp visuals, and OTA updates.

However, there's far more worth mentioning than graphics and cameras; and that's Ford Co-Pilot360 Active Drive Assist system.

Ford's answer to Cadillac Super Cruise and Tesla Autopilot rolls out hands-free driving capabilities on a network of 100,000 miles of highways, not just in 50 US states, but Canada as well. The catch to this is that, while other Ford models like the F-150 will also boast this functionality, the tech isn't usable yet, and will only become available in the third quarter of 2021. That's where the new electrical architecture and OTA updates will be most handy, as a simple update will enable the suite's full functionality, a complimentary feature on California Route 1, Premium, and First Edition variants.
