We’re Driving The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E – Ask Your Questions Here

We’re spending the weekend with the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E all-electric crossover. This is our second interactive review with the Mustang Mach-E, as we also spent some time with a Premium model back in December.

Our latest model is a well-optioned example equipped with the First Edition Package, which was only available for the 2021 model year and was part of the Premium trim in the form of the 301A equipment group. Our Mach-E is coated in Grabber Blue paint over a black perforated Active-X interior with blue stitching. This package includes a few additional goodies, including:

  • Unique brushed aluminum pedal covers
  • Aluminum front door scuff plates with First Edition lettering
  • Perforated ActiveX seating material
  • Red-painted front and rear brake calipers

Our 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E tester is also equipped with the following features:

  • Body color sideview mirror caps
  • Body color painted wheel lip moldings
  • 19-inch aluminum wheels with painted pockets
  • 225/55R19 all-season BSW tires

The MSRP for a base 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is $49,700. Our Mach-E has $8,600 in options, which combined with the $1,100 delivery fee brings the total MSRP to $59,400.

The Mach-E with the extended range battery and eAWD is rated to produce 346 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque and features the single-speed transmission with 88 kWh of usable battery capacity for an EPA estimated 270 miles of range.

We’re spending the weekend with Ford’s all-electric crossover, so if you would like to know more about it, ask your questions in the comments section, and we’ll reply on Monday morning as part of our interactive review.

Ready… set… go!

We’ll have more on the Mach-E soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and continuous Ford news coverage.

    How much slower is it when you are under 20% charge remaining?

      I imagine not very much if at all! I’m sure they’ve learned from Teslas mistakes & improved upon things. This Mach-e has gotten rave reviews by everyone!

      I don’t plan on getting it below 20 percent. The battery is at 30 percent right now and has full power.

      Stop sale order as of yesterday on all incoming and stock Mach-e’s….possibly will
      spread to a large number of existing built cars.

    Where should we park in the parking lot as the MachE is made in Mexico? Also, parts of the Mustang are also made elsewhere? Thank you. Special exception area?

      All the PROFITS come bk to the USA! Every AUTOMAKER foreign & domestic has operations in Mexico. Ford builds the MOST vehicles in the USA for the North American market! Fact. Ford has the most direct employees of any automaker operating in the US as well. Nice try. Ford is leading EV sales w/ outstanding products!

    When Ford opens up online orders again in August, do you anticipate them doing the set online price? Like Farley mentioned recently?

        Farley has nothing to do with it. Read the franchise agreements for virtually any make of car you can think of. Franchisees may charge whatever they wish.

      When I got the Mach-E it was at 89 percent charge with 270 miles remaining.

    With vinyl seats and no sun shade for the big moonroof, what is the temperature comfort level inside on sunny days over 80F? How “breathable” vs. sweaty are those perforated seats?

      That’s not vinyl it’s leather! I’ve been in the new Mach-e it’s excellent. Drives even better. Kudos to Ford Motor! All American 🇺🇸.

      It was kind of hot when I got into the Mach-E at around 5 PM with roughly 85 degree temps but the seats are very breathable and the cabin cooled down within five minutes of being activated.

    How much battery percentage is lost sitting unplugged overnight? My Model 3 only lost 1-3% depending on weather. Curious is the Mach-E is similar.

    Several dealers in the Rochester NY area are adding “Market Adjustment* of
    $5,000” to the price of the in stock Mustang Mach-E and $10,000 to the price of the Ford Bronco. This has soured my plans to purchase one of these vehicles from Ford. Hopefully Ford will end this dealer price gouging soon as it’s damaging their reputation.

      Dealerships are Private Franchise’s, (like Mc Donalds) They can do as they Darned Well Please. Saw an F-150 That was asking $97,000.00 on the Window Sticker. F O R D does NOT CARE. Neither do the DEALER’S!!!! Sorry, it’s Just a FACT!!!

      It’s a very hot seller. I get what your saying. Why not call other Ford dealers in your vicinity & ask about pricing?

    My 2021 Mach E is AWD with a 88 KWh battery, ordered Feb. 2021 at the Laurel, MT dealership, delivered Nov. 2021. To avoid utility demand charges, charging was set in the vehicle to occur at night between 9 pm and 6 am. Recommended 80% charge limit was also set. After downloading the Ford Pass app on an iPhone 13, the next charge went to 100%, charge time was during daytime utility demand hours, and 1 pedal drive setting changed to 2 pedal. Charging reverted to 80% during night time hours on the next charge cycle. I had to change 2 pedal drive back to 1 pedal drive. I prefer 1 pedal drive, like it a lot. Do you have an explanation for these glitches?
    My “real” Mustang is a 2008 GT with a 4.6 L V8 and a 5 speed Tremec gearbox–love it.

      Awesome. I love the new Mach-e too an hope to have one soon. I’m sure they can address your concern on here or at the selling dealer. Enjoy!

      My Mach-E has never deviated from one pedal driving. Sounds like your Mach-E needs to go to the dealer, unfortunately.

    Why is it taking so long for Ford Mexico to ship Mach e to Canada. My car has been completed for weeks.

      Just curious as to when you ordered your Mach E? I’m excited for the Mach E, but the timeline for this has pushed my patience.

      It’s Probably Sitting somewhere, “WITHOUT” the Option’s that you Ordered, and you have not been told about that yet… If your Lucky, the Dealership will let ya know B 4 you Drive Down there to Take Delivery of it…

    I ordered a MachE select in February 2022 .
    I live in Sherbrooke ( Quebec Canada ).
    Do you have an idea when the production will start for this town or province ?!

    Thank you!

      Call the dealership that will handle delivery of your vehicle . They should be able to get a “build date” an hopefully an approximate delivery date of your vehicle! Hope that helps you.

    Why did Ford rip off the Mustang name and apply it to this vehicle? Of course, we all know why, but I find it reprehensible. This vehicle is NOT a Mustang.

    Reply
    1. Jon

      Ha! How in the heck does a company “rip itself off”? Sorry bud, you don’t get to define what a “Mustang” is. And Ford is pretty clear – the Mach e is the Ford Mustang of the future, which will be even more true when Ford completely cancels the ICE version in the not too distant future. But, hey, you can stay with your “authentic” 1974 mustang 3 door hatchback, built on the Pinto chasis. ;-).

    We are thoroughly enjoying our Mach e GT PE. The only disappointment is the Bang & Olufsen Sound System. It’s really weak compared to the Revel in My wife’s Corsair and the Alpine in my TRX. Hopefully, the “Aftermarketers” will step up and offer upgrades to the subwoofer.

    When will Ford allow the driver to control the interior air recirculation feature??? I have to continually use the control panel to switch this feature on to keep the smell of diesel and gas fumes, cigarette smoke and skunk odors out of the cabin. THIS STINKS!!! My dealer tells me the system works automatically. It is an obvious engineering failure as every other car I have owned allowed me to keep this feature on.

    Another question and reply to other posts: While on cruise control at 55 mph, one pedal mode, a flat bed Ford farm truck in front of me quickly slowed, stopped, waited to turn off the highway. The forward looking protection brought the car to a stop without driver input, then accelerated the car back up to 55 mph. Question: when an abrupt or normal one pedal mode deceleration occurs, do the brake lights come on? A word of caution: some farmers / ranchers in MT do not have driver licenses….never bothered, so one should exercise caution around farm trucks.
    Replies to other posts: Do heating and A/C use reduce range? Yes, both uses show up on the “Where did my energy go?” screen. My experience so far is that the reductions are of the order of 5 to 10%. Winter temps inside my unheated garage get down to +30F and driving temps experienced have ranged from -20 F to +85 F. I have never used the vehicle preconditioning feature. In Alaska (I lived in Fairbanks for 45 years), a study by the University of Alaska documented that EVs, most of them Tesla, handled cold temps very well.
    An example of my range experience: Dashboard typically indicates 200-220 miles range with 80% charge. For a recent trip from home near Columbus, MT to Billings then back to home: Mileage = 105, indicated range at start = 218 miles, % charge = 80. Indicated range end of trip = 126, % charge = 46. Range used = 218 – 126 = 92 miles. Percent battery used = 80 – 46 = 34. Miles per kWh = 3.5. Cost of ~32 kWh electricity, including charger losses, used for the trip = ~$3.00. Cruise control setting when on highway = 55 mph. Miles per kWh is very sensitive to speed. Air drag at 70 mph is two times the air drag at 50 mph.
    Cost for the same trip when driving my 2008 Mustang GT, 4.6 L V8 = ~$20.00

      Arthur,

      For you first question, the brake lights should activate whenever you or the car brake. As for your second question, heating and cooling absolutely result in increased battery use. Definitely give preconditioning a shot!

    The drivers seat on my 2021 Mach-E only returns to preset 1 out of 5 times. Dealer cannot solve.

      I’m having the same problem. Dealer has checked it out 5 o 6 times and can’t help. Just had it in and they said it was because of the key fob but got it home and it is still not turning to the preset position. I tried using preset #3 and it does the same thing. Someone told me to make sure the “Easy Entry/Exit – Seat Adjustment” setting must be “on” and I have made sure it is on and it still doesn’t work. The dealer just installed a new motor for the seat and it still doesn’t work. Really frustrated.

    Why did Ford screw with a great car name like Mustang. I guess Ford is selling out to the Political Correct Woke Mob. Ford used to make great personal cars instead of ugly SUV’s. God please give us good looking coupes again soon.

    I am constantly getting charge faults on my 2021 Mach E. I do my charging overnight and it is very annoying to wake up in the morning and it only charged to 57% or 62% when I had it set for 80%. It says to unplug and plug in again, but that does no good when I have to get to work.
    What is the cause of this???
