As a stylish, fun-to-drive, and confidence-inspiring electric vehicle, the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E blows away the competition. The latest proof? A No. 1 finish for the Mustang Mach-E in the Car and Driver Electric Vehicle of the Year competition.

After weeks of tough real-world testing, Car and Driver had nothing but raves for the Mustang Mach-E. 

“We felt that if a carmaker was looking to convert people from EV skeptics to EV evangelists, there’s not a better vehicle out there than the Mustang Mach-E,” said Sharon Carty, the editor-in-chief of Car and Driver. “It’s a familiar shape and size of crossover. It’s in the sweet spot of what Americans love. It’s beautiful. It’s a design that gets noticed. It has a range and charging speed that is very competitive.”

The Mustang Mach-E is an incredibly enjoyable vehicle to drive. The entry-level Select model delivers 266 horsepower, up to 428 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 time of 5.2 seconds for eAWD models.* It handles like a dream, too, and provides up to 230 miles of range. California Route 1, Premium, and GT models come with even more range and power.**

Inside, the Mustang Mach-E gives you tons of space for passengers and cargo, a standard 15.5-inch touch screen with SYNC® 4A infotainment, and comfortable seats trimmed in Black Onyx ActiveX™.

Even though the first Mustang Mach-E GT models haven’t hit dealer lots, the new EV is already a hit with drivers, according to Darren Palmer, the global director of battery electric vehicles at Ford Motor Company. “More than half of our orders for the Mustang Mach-E GT have been for the Performance Edition, and I’m particularly pleased that we have had orders from every state across the U.S,” he stated.

In addition to its impressive range, the Mustang Mach-E GT boasts plenty of high-tech comforts and conveniences.

Ford EV Investment to Reach $22 Billion by 2025

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Ford is many things. It’s one of America’s leading automakers. It’s the powerhouse behind the F-series — the bestselling set of pickups in the U.S. for 44 years running. But it’s also a proponent for environmental progress and protection. That’s why the automaker recently announced a massive $22 billion investment into electric vehicles through 2025.

This news follows a 2018 announcement that Ford would spend $11 billion on developing EVs. The most prominent example of that is the first-ever Mustang Mach-E — an all-electric SUV inspired by the iconic pony car and powered entirely by a battery. The fact that Ford has doubled its EV investment within just a few years reflects its confidence in this segment.

While it’s a hybrid instead of a pure EV, the 2021 Ford F-150 and its class-exclusive 3.5-liter PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 may be a sign of things to come.* There are rumors that the blue oval will introduce an all-electric F-150 in 2022. Considering the best-in-class combined fuel economy and impressive power offered by the PowerBoost™ engine, it seems safe to assume that whatever the F-150 EV looks like, it’ll have more than enough heft to hold its own against the competition.

While Ford has plenty of exciting innovations waiting just down the road, you can take advantage of its forward-thinking nature today by test driving a new or used model at Packey Webb Ford.
