ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

  • It's an electric SUV.
  • It's a Mustang.
  • There will be GT versions.
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-estimated range from 230 miles to 300 miles.

You can't say Ford doesn't know how to make a big splash. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E fully electric SUV just made its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Marking the first time in 55 years Ford has expanded the Mustang lineup, as well as being Ford's first clean-sheet-of-paper electric vehicle, the Mach-E represents nothing less than the carmaker's future.

No doubt bestowing the Mustang pedigree on an SUV -- a fully electric one, no less -- has left some Mustang purists tearing their hair, but if what Ford is telling us isn't just hype, the Mach-E won't fall short in the performance category. How does sprinting from 0-to-60 mph in less than four seconds sound?

The Go

Available as either rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), the 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E can be outfitted with a standard-range or an extended-range battery. Ford claims an estimated 300-mile range when the electric SUV is equipped with the extended-range battery and configured as RWD. AWD versions with the extended battery are generating around 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque. Scheduled to arrive several months after the regular Mach-E models, GT versions, making 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque, are clocking 0-to-60 mph times under four seconds.

Mounted between the rear wheels, a 210-kilowatt motor drives those wheels. In AWD versions a second 50-kilowatt motor drives the front wheels. A 288-cell battery pack stores power for standard range. Extended range uses a 376-cell battery pack.

The 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E offers three different driving experiences: Whisper, Engage and Unbridled.

The Trappings

What should a Mustang SUV look like? Other than the Running Pony logo on the front of the Mach-E, there is little to identify it as a Mustang. Sleek, stylish and aggressive all describe the exterior. Wheel size will run from 18 inches to 20 inches depending on the trim.

Inside the Mach-E seats up to five. In addition to the cargo room behind the second-row seat, there is more than 4.0 cu-ft of room under the hood. A 15.5-in touchscreen dominates the center of the dashboard. Responding like a smartphone with swipes and pinches, the touchscreen interface, says Ford, will steadily make the driver's life easier by learning his or her preferences.

What, When and How Much?

Ford is already taking orders for the Mach-E, which it's currently offering in five trim levels: Select ($43,895), Premium ($50,600), California RT.1 Edition ($52,400), First Edition ($59,900) and the GT ($60,500). Only the Premium and the limited First Edition will be available in late 2020. The rest will be released in 2021. Find a Ford for sale
