Get That Ford Mustang Mach-E You've Been Wanting
See Why So Many Shoppers Buy From Charlie Clark
Departing from the familiar muscle style of the traditional Mustang, the Ford Mustang E Electric Vehicle (EV) is a uniquely interesting battery electric subcompact SUV. Combining luxury features inspired by the top-of-the-line Tesla models with the Mustang's smoothly powerful ride, it is one of the top SUVs, gas or EV, and is more than just an electric option to the regular lineup.
Electric Power And Performance
The Mach-E is a true battery-powered monster, and it has some decent power beneath the hood. While technology has yet to provide us with a low-cost battery option that can rival the feel of a Mustang GT, the Mach-E gets as close as possible while remaining affordable. The most recent, along with all the previous model years, has two battery packs available. The standard 70.0-kWh battery or an extended-range 91.0-kWh pack are slightly more significant, if not double the size of other compact electric SUVs.
The large battery size equates to an uncommon feeling of power that most electric vehicles have yet to capture. The 2023 GT Mach-E delivers an impressive 480 horsepower, while standard trims still can output a modest 266 hp. While not as zippy as other traditional sports cars, the Mach-E has an incredibly smooth ride and is utterly quiet, thanks to the silent operation of the battery and quiet motors. If you have never driven an EV before, it may take some getting used to, as the lack of a droning engine and smooth handling can make the ride feel weightless sometimes.
Speaking of the battery, the Mach-E doesn't slouch on the range. Standard batteries have an EPA estimated mileage of 226 mi on a single charge, while the larger battery can reach an impressive 312 miles without stopping and in favorable conditions. It's worth noting that all EVs suffer with range when it is cold outside.
Charging times are where the Ford Mach-E falls a bit short. Sporting three charging methods, the standard times at home can take upwards of 95 hours at 110V or 8 hours at 220V. Although the Mach-E, thankfully, has a quick charge option is reported by Ford to take roughly 45 minutes for 10% - 80% battery life.
Interior And Tech
The Mach-E makes the most of its interior and does not waste an inch. First, the batteries are mounted underneath the car, allowing for a front trunk space that is perfect for hauling any messy cargo. The back seats flip down, giving up to 60 cuft of cargo space. No one will be uncomfortable as there is ample leg and headroom and several integrated plugs for all your devices. The verticle touch screen is reminiscent of other high-end luxury EVs, although it does tend to dominate the eyeliner, standing out amongst the relatively smoothly flowing interior.
The tech on the Mustang Mach-E does not mess around either. Driver profiles can be saved, as you can use your cellphone as the key and automatically adjust the seats and mirrors when changing drivers. Some of the other top features include:
• Apple CarPlay and Android Auto • Optional mobile Wi-Fi hotspot • Keyless Entry • Smart Phone Remote Start • Standard Safety Features: o automated emergency braking with forward-collision warning o blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert o adaptive cruise control with hands-free driving mode
