Pros

Cons

What's new

We would never have guessed a decade ago that an all-electric SUV would be the next vehicle to wear the iconic Mustang logo. The classic Mustang two-door sports car isn’t technologically related to the 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E, but it does share many of its visual cues and offers a sporty driving experience befitting a vehicle bearing the galloping horse symbol.
There are EVs with better performance and some with greater range, but few manage the same balance of those two critical traits as the Mach-E. The Ford SUV looks like a waggon and has a range of up to 314 miles with all-wheel drive. It has a top speed of 60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The suspension is excellent at absorbing road imperfections, and the cabin is excellent at isolating road noise, making it a delight to drive around town.
The Mustang Mach-E currently competes in the same class as the Chevrolet Bolt EUV, Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6, Tesla Model Y, Volkswagen ID.4, and Volvo XC40 Recharge. This class is likely to rise year after year. Compare the Mustang Mach-E to its all-electric competition using our Expert Rating.

Our Verdict

That is, a Mustang! It’s an SUV! The Ford Mach-E is an electric automobile! We weren’t sure what to expect when we heard Ford was working on an electric Mustang SUV, but we’re glad it’s now a reality. Because of its exhilarating driving performance, lack of tailpipe emissions, and over-the-air software updates on a large centre touchscreen, the Mach-E drives and appears futuristic.
Rated for you by America’s best test team.
Performance 8.2 /10

How does the Ford Mustang Mach-E move? Despite its SUV wagon-like exterior, the Mach-E performs with the speed and agility you’d expect from any Mustang. A Mach-E Premium trim with an extended-range battery and all-wheel drive was tested. It took 5.2 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph on the Edmunds test track. In terms of acceleration, the Tesla Type Y, for example, exceeds some competitors, but the Mach-E, at least the model we tested, is delightfully quick.

Because of Ford’s fine-tuning of the driving characteristics, even this all-wheel-drive SUV now drives more like a rear-wheel-drive sport sedan. It’s engaging and playful at places. Transitions generate a great deal of physical movement, yet it is controlled and stable.

In typical driving, the Mach-E delivers a buttery smooth experience. The regenerative braking effect works well and allows for one-pedal driving, which means you can slow down to a complete stop just by taking your foot off the accelerator. We actually prefer doing this than using the brake pedal; it’s a little vague and grabby, making it hard to stop smoothly in typical driving. We hope Ford can improve the tuning with a future over-the-air software update.

Comfort 8.0 /10

Throughout ordinary driving, the Mach-E boasts a buttery smooth ride. Because of the efficient regenerative braking effect, which allows you to come to a complete stop by lifting your foot off the accelerator, one-pedal driving is possible. When driving regularly, the minor sponginess and grabbiness of the brake pedal might make it difficult to come to a complete stop. We genuinely prefer it this way. According to our projections, Ford should be able to adjust the settings with a subsequent over-the-air software update.

Interior 8.0 /10

How’s the interior?

Ford’s newest Sync 4 infotainment system, specifically the version designed for the Mach-15.5-inch E’s centre touchscreen, is one of our new favourites. The menus are easy to navigate, and a handy shortcut bar is offered. Based on the most frequently used functions, this bar is regularly updated. Furthermore, unlike the Tesla Model Y, the Mach-E boasts a 10.2-inch digital drive cluster that places crucial information in the driver’s direct line of sight.

 

Even while the front seats aren’t as adjustable as those in a typical luxury sedan, most drivers should be able to find a comfortable position. There is plenty of space in the back for adults. Despite the Mach-fastback E’s roofline, eyesight is surprisingly good, and getting in and out of the cabin is simple. The Mach-push-button E’s door releases are elegant and functional, but we’re not sure how long they’ll last.

Technology 8.5 /10

How’s the tech?

The technology on the Mach-interior E is excellent. We like the large 15.5-inch touchscreen in the centre, which is backed up by traditional controls like a volume knob. Wireless smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is available, unlike the Model Y. (though you can still connect through USB cord). Although it is not as simple as some rival systems, the onboard navigation system in Ford vehicles is responsive and well-made.

 

The Premium trim level includes a fantastic 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system with AM/FM and XM satellite radio for a rich audio experience. Our test vehicle’s advanced driver assistance systems also included 360-degree cameras, lane centering, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Because it was an early manufacturing version, some of the aids were unavailable, but the ones that were available worked flawlessly.

Storage 8.0 /10

How’s the storage? The Mach-E’s hatch-style trunk helps maximize cargo space. Ford says there’s 29 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. That’s not as generous as the Model Y, especially underfloor. There is, however, a very clever flexible cargo cover that attaches to the rear hatch and swings up out of the way or can be removed completely. Adding to the Mach-E’s cargo capacity are the split rear seats that fold. The front trunk is a bit small but has a drain hole, allowing you to use it as an ice-filled cooler that can be drained later.

Up front, a two-tiered console offers plenty of storage options for your personal items and makes the front cabin look more spacious. The side door pockets are a decent width but short on height. A wireless charging pad ahead of the cupholders looks like it will accommodate two phones, but it’s really only big enough for one.

Got little kids? The child safety seat anchor points are located behind slits in the seatback. They’re not as visible as the Euro-style Isofix anchors but provide OK access.

Range and Efficiency 8.0 /10

How are the range and efficiency? [Editor’s note: The following comes from our testing of a 2021 Mustang Mach-E. EPA-estimated range increased slightly starting for 2022 but the following test results are still broadly applicable.] The range estimate for a 2021 all-wheel-drive Mach-E with the extended-range battery is 270 miles with an efficiency of 37 kWh of battery power used per 100 miles. Both of those figures are average for a luxury EV.

In Edmunds’ real-world range testing, the Mach-E was more efficient, using 33.1 kWh per 100 miles (remember that with an EV the lower the figure the better). It also outperformed its EPA-estimated range, going 304 miles on a full battery. Most EVs have exceeded their EPA estimates in our testing, with the notable exception of Tesla’s vehicles.

Ford says the Mach-E can add up to 61 miles in as little as 10 minutes, or go from 10% to 80% battery charge in 45 minutes, with a 150-kW DC fast charger. Ford is also selling its own Connected Charge home charging station. Similar in concept to Tesla’s Wall Connector, it’s a high-powered charger that you can use to add up to 30 miles of charge per hour.

Value 8.0 /10

Is the Mustang Mach-E a good value? Unlike Tesla, Ford’s EV credits have not yet run out, meaning the potential discounts on the Mach-E make it a pretty attractive deal. Build quality feels solid overall, and the cabin is beautifully trimmed in a style that feels reminiscent of Scandinavian design. If not for the typical Ford switchgear that appears on the steering wheel and doors, you might think you were in a Lincoln.

Ford’s warranty is a bit less generous compared to luxury makes but isn’t that far off. Coverage lasts for three years/36,000 miles for bumper-to-bumper and five years/60,000 miles for the powertrain. Electric components are covered for eight years/100,000 miles including retention of 70% or more of the original battery capacity.

Wildcard 8.0 /10

When Ford announced it was building an electric Mustang SUV, most of our team scoffed at the idea. Somehow the designers managed to pull it off. The Mach-E resembles a Mustang and yet is very practical. Ford also did well to include some driving personality in the way the Mach-E attacks corners. It’s surprisingly fun on a curvy back road. Some EVs can be bland, but not this one.

Which Mustang Mach-E does Edmunds recommend?

Our recommendation is the Premium trim for its mix of luxury and convenience features and wide selection of battery packs and drivetrain layouts.

    4/5

    Fun car to drive - be prepared for an EV

    I have the GT with extended range and AWD. The car has excellent acceleration, especially from a start or passing. Very good handling for what is really a crossover. Large interior, also common to ev’s. I guess they stole the idea of a large touch screen from Tesla and while I’d prefer more dedicated knobs and buttons (especially for heat), you get used to where things are, just draws…

     too much attention. Plenty of room in the back and a nice extra storage up front (aka “Frunk”) Negatives are that it’s not an SUV as advertised, no tow bar nor roof rack capabilities. New England winters drop range to about 180 + reserve (haven’t pushed it below 20 miles of range yet) so you really have to plan your travels if this is your only car. The good bit there is that Ford has a good estimating algorithm so you can at least count on the range displayed.

    Great first attempt at building a mainstream BEV

    Van,06/20/2022
    2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Standard Range (electric DD)

    Mine is the Premium AWD with the extended range battery. It was a 2021 when I ordered it, but it ended up being a 2022 when it was delivered. Ford honored my original order price along with any rebates and financing deals they had at the time. This included the 2021 CA Clean Air Vehicle rebate! It’s a great car with great overall build quality and features. Most of the reviews hit 

     all of the high points, so I will list the low points that I have experienced since I took delivery of the car. I also own a Tesla Model 3 so I will compare the features against that. 1. Phone as a Key works 50% of the time when you walk up to the car and push the button to unlock. I sometimes have to kill the phone app, start it again and hold the unlock button in the app to access the vehicle. I now give up when it doesn’t unlock after the first push and use the door keypad to get in. Tesla’s Phone Key is much better and works 100% of the time. 2. Walk away lock works great and it sends you a push notification when it locks so you can be sure that it does. The phone app won’t give you a status of the lock state of the car like the Tesla app. One annoying thing I wish Ford would implement in a future update is the ability to keep the car unlocked at a location. I keep my windows open in my garage sometimes and when I go to grab something out of the car through the windows, the alarm will sound and it takes forever to turn it off with the phone app. I know I can turn off motion on the alarm, but I swear it keeps turning itself back on (which is what I’ve noticed with a few settings I’ve set). Tesla has this feature where you can set it to not auto-lock when you’re at a home location. 3. Charge settings can only be set once you plug it into the charger and set up a charge location…at least in my experience. This is annoying since I have to plug the car in before I can change the charge limit (like from 60% to 90 or 100%). Although I do like that you can fine tune the charge window for peak/off-peak charging. The Tesla lets you do this at anytime in the app, but you can only set a time to charge or a time to finish by. 4. The fixed-glass panoramic roof is nice, but could be tinted darker or have a thicker UV coating on it? It heats up the cabin quite a bit compared to the tesla’s glass roof. 5. The connected navigation is not as good as Ford’s Sync 3 version and nowhere near as good as the Tesla’s proprietary/google version.

    5/5

    Unbridled Fun

    socalh2oskier,10/08/2022
    2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E GT 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Extended Range (electric DD)

    We sold my wife’s 2019 BMW X3 M40i in February 2022 and ordered a 2022 Mach-E GT Performance. We placed our Mach-E order February 8 and it just arrived (in October 2022). Although you would think the BMW is the more upscale car, and more fun to drive, the Mach-E trumps it in just about every area. Ours is the GT Performance Edition in Cyber Orange. It is a looker. It trounces our old BMW …

    in the looks department. We have had many nice cars but none have garnered the attention we get in the Mach-E. Driving is–well–astonishment is the word that first comes to mind when you take off in this thing. The torque is amazing and you cannot help to get a big grin when you step on the pedal just a little–that wave of torque never gets old. And if you really tromp on it, it is downright scary who freakin fast this thing is. Surprisingly, the ride around town is quite smooth. Highway trips are likewise smooth, but the car could use a bit more sound dampening for highway speeds. The Ban & Oflufson stereo is kick-ass, good bass and sharp clear highs. And for such a heavy car, it handles quite well. One pedal driving is a hoot–we may drive this over 100,000 miles and never replace the brakes. We rarely use the brakes in this car. Charging is easy, and cheap. With our electric rates (we home charge) it would take about $9.00 to charge from near empty to 100 percent, which gives around 250-270 miles of range. During the winter, we get super low electric rates that will cut that cost in half. We have not used public charging and probably never will. We use the Mach-E for all of our local every-day driving so it is easy to keep it charged at home. For long trips, we take our Subaru Outback (another great car–especially for the money). The interior on the Mach-E is nice. Not luxurious, but not cheap. The seats are excellent. Touch materials are high quality. The big screen works well. It takes a bit of getting used to, and I would prefer to have a few physical knobs for things like the radio and A/C but overall the screen works much better than we expected. It is super fast and responsive, and very clear. The backup camera view is incredible. In summary, this is a really really good car for the money. Actually, it is a really good car even without considering cost. We have had Mercedes, BMW, Range Rover, Jaguar, Lexus–and a host of others. The Mach-E is a new favorite–that 600 plus lb-ft of torque off the line never gets old, the cabin is nicely done, the ride is surprisingly smooth and quiet, it handles quite well, and it had great looks–much better than a Tesla. My biggest gripe has to do with the buying experience. This is my first Ford since the 1970s (excluding Jaguar, which was owned by Ford when I purchased most of my Jags). Ordering on the Ford website was easy, as was tracking my order and tracking the car once it was built. But the dealer experience was the pits. First, the dealer tried to discourage us from taking delivery, saying we should wait until next year as this is one of the last 2022s–we strongly suspect this was so they could then sell the car for $10k-$20k over MSRP. Then, when we showed up to take delivery, they tried all sorts of tricks to pad their wallet. First, the added some worthless paint protection, even though I had it in writing from two of their representatives, including the new car director, that they would NOT add any extras to the car. They tried to tell me that they put it on all cars, it was already on this car, and they could not take it off. Perhaps this was another ploy to get us to walk away from taking the car. In any event, I told them I would walk and complain to Ford, and they took off the stupid paint protection charge. Then, when I asked what the taxes and registration fees were, asking for a breakdown, they hemmed and hawed and kept giving me a total number with no breakdown–so I had to go to the director–turns out that the shady character who wouldn’t give me the numbers was charging double for taxes and registration–I guess they thought they could hide it in the numbers and back it out later? Who knows, but there was some sort of shenanigans going on. Then, when I told them I wanted to use the Ford Options program to purchase the car, they told me that I was crazy, that no one ever uses that, because it is no good, and said in fact they had never sold a car using Ford Options–because it was such a bad program. I’m sure Ford would love to hear that. In all, we were at the dealer for 5.5 hour to get the deal done, and this is for a car that I had ordered and there was no negotiation on the price. We should have been in and out in an hour or less. I have to say, the more upscale dealers generally give you a much better experience. So, enough venting about the shady dealer. The car has been amazing. We are very pleased with it and highly recommend it. The Mach-E is well worth the money. Our only caveat is that it probably would not be a very good only car, as the range is not great. But for a second car for local errands, with drives up to about 75-100 miles one-way, it is terrific!

    2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 4dr Hatchback AWD w/Extended Range (electric DD)

    Love my Mach-e. AWD for new england weather, reasonable range and good pickup. The quiet, comfortable ride is what sold the car for me. I use the dash board almost exclusively while driving and like the large monitor for navigation. Hatch is large and cargo space is very good for trips to the grocery store and home improvement store. In the winter, the frunk is great to keep stuff …

     cold on your way home from the store and since it has a drain, it can be filled with ice for summer drives.

    Ford Mustang Mach-E vs. the competition

    2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E
    2023 Volkswagen ID.4

    Ford Mustang Mach-E vs. Volkswagen ID.4

    The Volkswagen ID.4 is the first electric model representing the German auto giant’s big EV push, and there’s a lot to like about it. The compact SUV is reasonably comfortable and offers an impressive list of tech features, but we find the cumbersome user interface an exercise in frustration. It can’t hang with the Mach-E in performance or EV range, but it’s cheaper and has a longer warranty.

    Ford Mustang Mach-E vs. Tesla Model Y

    The Tesla Model Y is one of the Mustang Mach-E’s closest competitors. Tesla’s small electric SUV has more range and is quicker off the line, but we think the Mach-E is the better buy for its solid build quality and more distinct personality. The Model Y’s price is comparable to the Mach-E’s top GT trim, and for around the same price the Mustang comes better equipped.

    Ford Mustang Mach-E vs. Kia EV6

    It’s hard to say whether the Kia EV6 is an oversized hatchback or a low-slung SUV, but whatever it is, it’s eye-catching. The EV6 is close in overall size to the Mach-E but sits lower by a few inches. Both EVs are quick, yet higher trim levels of the EV6 will outrun the Mach-E. If you need space to haul things occasionally, the Mustang has the larger cargo area.

    2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Review

    by Alex Nishimoto rating written by 01/12/2022

    What is the Ford Mustang Mach-E?

    The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E is an all-electric SUV. With sporty driving dynamics and Mustang coupe-like styling, it isn’t as boxy or spacious as some other SUVs, but what it lacks in practicality, it makes up for in style. For the 2022 model year, there were several updates to range and available equipment, with increases in efficiency across the Mach-E range. For 2023, Ford is making big promises too — starting with production. To keep up with demand, Ford plans to increase production of the Mustang Mach-E, with a target of at least 200,000 vehicles each year globally.

    The Mach-E’s most direct rival is the Tesla Model Y, which also offers several configurations. Both SUVs are available with long-range battery configurations or high-performance setups — and both offer similar levels of performance. The Tesla beats out the Ford when it comes to outright acceleration and overall range, but the driving experience in the Mach-E makes up for most of the differences.

    Other EV competitors like the Polestar 2 and Audi e-tron are worth considering, but they’re a bit pricier and can’t match the Mach-E for range. For 2023, we expect the Mach-E to receive incremental improvements to range and efficiency, giving it an even bigger advantage. Weight savings and software changes will likely account for most of any added range since we don’t expect a change in the Mach-E’s current battery pack lineup.

    Edmunds says

    The Mustang Mach-E is one of our favorite EVs at Edmunds. It has a user-friendly interior layout, sleek exterior styling, and several options when it comes to range and powertrain. A little bit of added range expected for 2023 will only add to the Mach-E’s appeal. Check back for more information on the 2023 Mach-E soon.

    FAQ

    Should I lease or buy a 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E?

    Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they’ll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it’s true, provided you’re willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It’s also good if you’re someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
