This is a Motormouth couple car review of the Ford Mustang Mach E electric SUV. The Ford Mustang Mach-e has an eye-catching design with sleek and muscular curves. It comes standard with LED headlights and taillights, a manual liftgate and 18” wheels. Our Premium trim test model comes with a panoramic glass roof and 19” wheels, it goes 0-60 in 4.8 seconds with the extended range battery. The Ford Mach-E is available with standard and extended range battery options with either RWD or AWD powered by one or two electric motors. All models have a magnet motor, which is located on the rear axle. The Mach-E AWD also has a secondary electric motor on the front axle to boost performance. Here is a break down of the EV range: Standard Range RWD gets 355km/230 miles of EV range and AWD gets 325 km/210 miles. Extended Range RWD, 475 km/300 miles and AWD 425 km/270 miles of range. AWD is an extra $3500 CAD/$2,700 USD and the Extended Range is $7,000 CAD/$5,000 USD. If you choose the Extended Range RWD you get an extra 120 km EV range and Extended Range AWD an extra 100 km. Is it worth the extra $7000 CAD/$5,000 USD?There is also a difference in horsepower and torque depending on whether you choose Standard or Extended range, RWD or AWD. Standard Range RWD and AWD has 266 horsepower.Extended Range RWD has 290 horsepower and AWD 346 horsepower. RWD gets 317 lb-ft of torque and AWD 428 lb-ft of torque. The Mach E GT Performance Edition gets the most power with 480 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque. That’s more torque than the Porsche Taycan Turbo at 626 lb-ft of torque. The Mach-E offers front seats that deliver comfort and support along with plenty of legroom. The seats are an ActiveX faux leather material and the steering wheel is wrapped in a soft vinyl. Leather is not available on any trims. Three adults can fit comfortably in the rear seat; it has a flat floor, which offers more space for the middle passenger. There is 29.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat and almost 60 cubic feet of overall cargo space. There is also a front trunk (frunk), which adds another 4.7 cubic feet of space.Ford has used mostly soft materials with very little hard plastic except on the doors and at the bottom of the centre console. I like the use of cloth on the dashboard and doors, it elevates this interior adding elegance to the cabin. The Mach-E offers plenty of tech with a standard 15.5” touchscreen which is intuitive to use, a 10.2” digital driver display and wireless Apple Carplay and Android Auto. The best value trim in Canada goes to the Mach-E Premium for $59,495 CAD/$47,600 USD. Some standard features include, a hands-free foot activated power tailgate, a glass roof, heated front seats, driver seat memory, heated steering wheel, a B&O 10-speaker sound system which sounds excellent, 19” wheels, Ford co-pilot 360, Active Park Assist, and a 360 degree camera with split view. If you want AWD, add $3500 CAD/$2,700 USD and the Extended Range $7,000 CAD/$5,000 USD. There are 3 drive modes available Whisper, Engage and Unbridled. Whisper is comfort mode, great for coasting in the city and has some propulsion sound piped in through the audio system. Engage mode is more fun but subtle, the goldilocks of the 3 modes in my opinion. Unbridled is the most exhilarating mode. Ford says, this mode pays homage to the legacy of the Mustang sound but in a unique package designed for an EV. You can turn off the propulsion sound that is piped in if you don’t like it.
