2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Narrowly Misses Top Safety Pick+ Rating

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is a new electric vehicle, an expansion of the Mustang nameplate into a brand, and a very important vehicle for the Blue Oval—the latter being an understatement. Don’t forget that we also feel that it earns its pony badge, offering style, performance, and reasonable utility with enough deference to its two-door sibling. Not to say the Mach-E isn’t controversial to some enthusiasts, but that would be the case no matter how good it is. Now we can add the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) crash-test ratings to the discussion.

Let’s cut right to the chase. The Mach-E scores well in all the crash tests IIHS conducts. (And as of this writing, NHTSA hasn’t conducted its testing.) It earned the top rating of “Good” in all the major crashworthiness areas: small overlap front crash, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints/seats. This means it qualifies for the “Top Safety Pick” overall ranking—nearly the highest ranking available. For the full story and crash testing videos, check out this article from Motor Trend.
