Ford Mustang Mach-E: An Impressive EV
More than just a snappy dresser, Ford's all-electric 2021 Mustang Mach-E has the brains and brawn to contend with Tesla's offerings. Its fashion sense will initially attract buyers, but it's the vehicle's solid handling, well-mannered infotainment system, and superior technology systems that will keep them happy.
We put hundreds of miles on a carbonized grey Mustang Mach-E First Edition. It's classified as an SUV but it's actually more like a sedan with a hatchback. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) four-door came with the extended battery and endured rutted country roads, life-sapping urban congestion, and endless highway miles with ease. With a rated battery range of 270 miles, we never achieved that goal, but we did like the Mach-E's smarts, including Ford's Sync 4A infotainment and navigation system, support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a host of driver assistance features.
