New 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Price, AWD, Availability – Ford’s decision to rebrand a crossover electric vehicle as the Mustang may sound sacrilegious, but the automaker’s decision to mix the historic nameplate with a famous body shape was a marketing move. The 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E combines timeless design cues with modern technology to create a desirable vehicle that we believe bodes well for the future of electric cars and hence earns our Editors’ Choice designation. The Mach-E is not only striking to look at from the outside but also boasts a luxurious cabin loaded to the gills with cutting-edge gadgetry. It features plenty of room for cargo, a roomy back seat, and clever storage solutions. Driving the battery-powered Mustang gives the impression of elegant quickness. The maximum range is projected at over 300 miles per charge, and the fastest model can accelerate to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds (faster than a Mustang Mach 1). The 2024 Mustang Mach-E has all these features, making it an exceptional EV.
Our first ever EV of the Year, the 2024 Mustang Mach-E, should have an even longer real-world range because of an increased usable battery capacity for the second generation model. All-wheel drive, heated seats, and steering wheel are now standard on the California 1. The GT model now has a black roof as standard equipment. The Mach-E, like the Mustang, has a new all-white limited edition model named the Ice White Edition. This new look option is exclusive to the Premium trim and features tri-coat Star White metallic paint and Oxford White accents, including 19-inch wheels and external emblems. Colors like Grabber Blue and Cyber Orange, previously exclusive to the GT, are now offered on several models.
New 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Redesign
The first year, the all-electric Ford Mustang SUV made headlines, but now drivers barely notice it. Nevertheless, the basic idea behind the design holds up well. Create a four-door electric crossover using the same name and overall styling elements as the brand’s most recognizable symbol. Overall, we like how it’s been put together. The Mach-version E’s on the iconic Mustang taillights are integrated into a more conventionally proportioned, good rear end. It’s brave of Ford to remove the front grille, but we appreciate that the automaker isn’t afraid to embrace the EV’s benefits. A false grille on an EV is one of the most annoying things we’ve seen. Great detail is the concealed door knobs.
Comparatively, the Mach-E occupies less space than a traditional Mustang. Although slimmer and shorter, it can comfortably seat five people. Its length is 185.6 inches, its width is 74.1 inches, and the length of its wheelbase is 117.5 inches. That’s the major secret about Mach-E. With no linkage between the front and back wheels, the floor can be completely flat, and the longer wheelbase provides additional interior space for people and their belongings. The GT models are indeed a hair longer at 186.7 inches in length. All passengers will have sufficient headroom with a 64-inch ceiling; the California Route 1 and GT models are somewhat lower, at 63.5 inches. The GT Performance Edition is significantly heavier than the base RWD vehicle, which has a curb weight of 4,318 pounds.
The Mustang Mach-E battery are hidden under the car’s floor, so there’s plenty of room for passengers and their belongings. The Mach-interior E’s share little with a conventional Mustang, in contrast to the car’s looks. It has an elegant digital gauge cluster that takes up minimal space on the dashboard, which is otherwise dominated by a massive touchscreen positioned vertically. In the middle of the front seats, a purse or other small object can be stowed away in the floating armrest that flips up from the center console. Ambient lighting in the interior can be adjusted, and there are also heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, wireless charging, a panoramic sunroof, and more. It is possible to store ice and other filthy items in the front trunk because it is composed of rigid polymers that can be cleaned and drained. It’s possible to fit as much as 60 cubic feet of cargo in the Mach-E if the rear seats are folded down.
Using machine learning, Ford’s next-generation SYNC infotainment system—which presently allows three driver profiles and one guest profile—can completely personalize the in-car experience for each driver. The Mustang Mach-E’s software is operated by a 15.5-inch touchscreen display that is positioned vertically. Ford will release updates for the system wirelessly, expanding its functionality and adding new features over time. Highlights include a Bang & Olufsen sound system, mobile Wi-Fi, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.
One electric motor mounted in the back is standard, coupled to a manual gearbox. Because of its direct drive system and instant power delivery, even the heaviest Mach-E models can rev to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds. When eAWD is selected, an additional electric motor is installed in front of the vehicle. Since the two engines are not mechanically connected, improved AWD performance is possible. This all-wheel-drive system could theoretically supply equal power to each axle, eliminating the need for any power split between the show and rear wheels. Toys with more power: increase the number of motors and capacity of the battery pack. It’s as easy as that.
The Premium RWD with the ER battery is the slowest of the lineup. The GT Performance Edition with eAWD and an ER battery can reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, while the standard model takes 6.1 seconds. All the other models are in the middle, between these two extremes. Compared to RWD vehicles powered by the same ER battery, AWD vehicles are 1.3 seconds quicker to 60 mph.
The factors discussed above affect the models’ total power output. In RWD form, the Select models’ 70-kWh batteries (standard range) provide 266 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. When you factor in the AWD system, the torque jumps to 428 lb-ft. The usual battery capacity for California Route 1 is 91 kWh, which provides an increased driving range. In RWD configuration, the single electric motor generates 290 horsepower and 317 lb-ft of torque. When a different engine is installed up front, output jumps to 346 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. You can get the Premium package in any of the configurations above, and the outputs won’t change. The ER battery is standard on the GT and GT Performance. Compared to the standard GT’s 480 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, the performance model’s output is 634 lb-ft. The 0–60 mph sprint times for these two models are 3.8 and 3.5 seconds, respectively, making them the most powerful cars in their categories.
New 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Release Date and Price
Ford Mach-E pricing ranged from $43,895 for the Select to $48,775 for the Premium. We have seen dealers charge up to $70,000 for the quickest model, even though the MSRP for the California Route 1 was $52,450 and the retail price of the GT was $61,995. The Mach-E has a distinct advantage over the Tesla Model Y since it is eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit. Ford CEO Jim Farley only confirmed that the Mach-E would be coming to the United States in 2024, teasing its arrival alongside the global announcement of the new model.
