Since its rise to fame that began all the way back in 1964, the Mustang has become well-known for its style and its power, which historically, has come from a gas-powered engine. But that all changes with the all-new 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Mustang Mach-E is an all-electric SUV that mirrors the iconic styling and performance of the famous pony car, but that does it all without a drop of gas.
It’s all made possible with a variety of battery and drivetrain options that deliver different capabilities for all types of buyers. It all starts with the two battery options – a 70 kWh and a 91 kWh option which are more clearly classified as the Standard Range and Extended Range battery options. They offer 288 (Standard) to 376 (Extended) lithium-ion cells to help speed up charging and to extend driving range.
When it comes to drivetrain, buyers also have options. The Mustang Mach-E can be equipped with RWD or a unique eAWD system that adds some additional power to the mix. eAWD uses the same electric motor stationed on the rear axle of all Mach-E models, but it tacks a secondary electric motor onto the front axle to not only improve traction, but boosts acceleration, torque and general performance.
While all varieties of the Mach-E are focused on power and performance, it’s the GT trim that shines brightest with shocking numbers that are not typically associated with fully-electric vehicles. At its peak, the GT is capable of achieving 480 horsepower and a whopping 643 lb-ft of torque. To give you a better idea of its power, the Mach-E can go from 0 to 60 in just 3.5 seconds when equipped with the extended-range battery and electric all-wheel drive system.
In addition to power, the GT trim features a variety of systems that help to enhance the sporty driving experience of the SUV. The Performance Edition comes equipped with a MagneRide damping system, which includes adaptive suspension technology that helps the Mustang Mach-E to juke swiftly at the turn of the wheel, helping the SUV to hug every curve while delivering a thrilling, comfortable ride.
To start, the Mach-E will feature four unique trim levels – the aforementioned GT, as well as a Select, Premium and California Route 1 option. The MSRP range starts at $43,895 for the entry-level Select trim, and tops out at $61,995 for the higher-end GT variety. The Premium and California Route 1 fall in between at $48,775 for the former and $52,450 for the latter.
Not surprisingly, shortly after the announcement of the Mustang Mach-E, special orders were closed due to high demand, but it’s still possible to receive notifications as soon as orders open back up.
