Let’s start by getting one thing out of the way: The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is, in fact, a Mustang. Ford, the company responsible for building the thing, baptized it as a Mustang and even went as far as putting Mustang badges on the front and rear of the car, as well as the steering wheel. I could sit here and debate with everyone whether this is right or wrong, but that’d be exhausting. It feels as tired to me as debating whether a Cayenne Turbo S is a “real” Porsche. Of course it is.
And more importantly, this debate wouldn’t change anything at all. So, the faster we can move on from that, the sooner we can talk about what the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E really is.
Let’s start there. It’s a five-passenger, high-performance electric crossover that can be had in rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, as well as in various battery and performance configurations that deliver anywhere from 266 to 480 horsepower, and 211 to 300 miles of range—though some have been driven for up to 355 miles. When it comes to zero-to-60 times, the slowest Mach-E will do it in a balmy 6.1 seconds while the quickest in an impressive 3.5. It’s the first production Mustang with four doors, this kind of ride height, AWD, and propulsion from electricity, not gasoline. For the full story, check out this article from The Drive.
