Some of the most exciting news lately has been the future lineup of Ford's upcoming electric vehicles with the debut of Ford's first all-electric vehicle. Along with the rest of the world, we watched the livestream reveal of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E at the L.A. Auto Show on November 17th, 2019 and we still can't get enough news about the new fully electric Mustang Mach-E. Let's build some more hype and further discuss the release date, price, Mustang-inspired exterior design, specifications, trim levels, interior design, and EV range.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Release Date

Prior to the L.A. Auto Show, we were dying with anticipation to finally see the new Mustang-inspired EV crossover and reveal of its proper name the Ford Mustang Mach-E. We aren't exactly sure how long after the debut until the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E begins production, but estimates indicate the Mach-E to be released later in 2020 as it is labeled for the 2021 lineup.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Price & Trims

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has a starting price of $43,895 for the base model and comes with 5 trim levels: Select, Premium, California Route 1, Limited First Edition, and GT. Moving up from the base Mach-E Select, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E Premium starts at $50,600 and the Mach-E California Route 1 starts at $52,400. For the higher trim levels, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mache-E Limited First Edition starts at $59,900 while the top of the line 2021 Mach-E GT has a starting price tag of $60,500. On top of these prices, you may qualify for as much as $7,500 in federal tax incentives for purchasing an all-electric Ford vehicle in 2020. This means that the Tesla Model Y will have some competition. Even though these two models will share common price points, the Mustang Mach-E will be closer to the size of a Tesla Model X instead.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Exterior

For a while, we only had teaser images and a few concept renderings to look at, but now we have a full look at the exterior of the all-electric Mustang crossover. First, we see the grille with a hexagonal shape, similar to the iconic Mustang but taller like that of the Edge and other Ford SUVs. Most Mach-E trims come with black plastic fender flares but the higher trim levels featured the same body color applied to the fender flares. The front-end design clearly screams Mustang but as you move towards the rear, the design begins to round out and square off like a sportback or hatchback. Currently, there are 7 exterior color choices: Rapid Red, Star White, Infinite Blue, Carbonized Gray, Shadow Black, Iconic Silver, and Space White.

Mach-E Inspirations Inherited from the Mustang

What we can see so far are some clear cues that the Mustang heritage is alive and active in the Mach-E design. Aside from the classic Pony emblem, the all-electric Mustang Mach-E clearly features a fastback roofline, wide headlights, specialized headlight animation, and a unique shape. Maybe it is a crossover, but nobody told this vehicle. It still screams muscle car.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Interior Features

The upcoming 2021 Mustang Mach-E features an interior for the future connected with seamless technology designed to prove a completely unique, personalized driving experience. Equipped with PhoneAs A Key, the Mach-E will recognize you as you approach the vehicle and automatically start adjusting seats, mirrors, radio stations, interior lighting, and the instrument panel just the way you configured it. The design of the interior feels less cluttered and features 2 big digital displays on the front dash. Behind the steering wheel is the smaller instrument panel while the larger, tablet shaped 15.5-inch touch screen display is mounted ahead of the center console. The 2021 Mach-E features the next generation of Ford SYNC® technology. Next-gen SYNC® highlights include voice activation, cloud-connected navigation, customizable cluster screen, modem-based over-the-air updates, and the ability to locate your next charging location. The Mach-E also comes with a convenient front trunk to step up your adventure game. The front trunk adds 4.8 ft3 of water-resistant storage space featuring a convenient drain making it an ideal cooler for tailgating or camping.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Battery & EV Range

One thing isn't a mystery - the Mustang Mach-E should come with at least 300-miles of electric range. The Mach-E Select has an EPA-estimated range of 230 miles while the mid-level trims (Premium, California Route 1) feature the 300-mile range. The limited run First Edition Mach-E is estimated to achieve 270 miles on a single charge as the 2021 Mach-E GT gets an EV range of 235 miles. This is how the Mach-E will become a leader of the new Ford electric car models by setting the bar of EV range expectations. With a 150kw DC fast charger, you should be able to get 47 miles of range with only 10 minutes of charge with the Mach-E. In conjunction with this EV addition, Ford also started rolling out the largest electric vehicle nationwide public charging network. This equals a total of over 12,000 locations with 35,000 plugs. That totals more than the other automakers attempting to compete.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Performance Specs

The Mach-E is fast, Mustang-inspired fast. The 2021 Mustang Mach-E has a targeted 0-60mph acceleration in the mid-3-second range. With the initial information we have, it's possible for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E to contain over 400hp. It will come standard on an RWD (rear-wheel-drive) platform, with the availability to upgrade to AWD (all-wheel drive). The 2021 Mach-E GT comes standard with AWD. The current technology includes parts from the GT350/GT500 lineup. With exceptional handling and capability, the front and rear motors distribute power to individual wheels making snowy drives a breeze. All of these thrill-inducing specs come complete with zero emissions. That's what makes this model such a powerful and potent Ford electric crossover SUV; equipped with the essential thrill of a Mustang but with eco-friendly touch. Of course, we expect other Ford Performance parts to come on the vehicle. Look for unique aerodynamic properties and a performance-driven, specialty-tuned suspension.

Will the Electric Mustang Crossover Carry the "Mach-E" Nameplate?

We heard plenty of rumors about the supposed name (some saying Mach-1, others saying Mach-E) of the Mustang-inspired EV crossover prior to the L.A. Auto Show debut. It's now been confirmed that it will be called the Mustang Mach-E. Welcome to the stable!

Initial Ford Mustang Mach-E Reviews & Ratings

Whatever we find out, it's clear that the buzz around the Ford Mustang Mach-E isn't going anywhere. CarBuzz is excited to see how the "Mach-E finds another way to totally surpass Tesla." Even TheDrive can't help but speculate, by saying this new Ford model will be a cross between a "Mustang and a Maserati Levante."
