10: There Are 5 Different Models

Perhaps the most intriguing thing about the Mach-E is the fact that there are five different models to choose from. Ford wants the Mach-E line to be in-depth and have enough range that it appeals to all buyers. Not every buyer is going to want a full-fledged sports car, but they will want a vehicle that looks good and performs admirably. The Mach-E can fill this gap nicely in an otherwise crowded marketplace. The first thing you’ll notice about the base-level Mach-E is the upmarket styling. The vehicle comes with a stellar pair of alloy rims in addition to the hidden door handles displayed at the unveiling.

The more upmarket versions of the Mach-E are going to be adding accessories, which are at the forefront of any crossover SUV. A roof rack will be an option, as well as a bike rack. With the Mach-E offering an AWD version, there is no doubt that some owners will be taking these things off of the beaten path. The notable driving characteristics of the Mach-E are what Ford is hoping attracts a wide range of buyers. The Mustang has traditionally been a sports car. With the Mach-E, the company is exploring a new market.

9: It Comes With A SYNC Infotainment System

Believe it or not, the Sync voice-activated system has been in Ford vehicles since around 2005. But the company continues to innovate it. Compared to other infotainment systems on the market, the Sync system is pretty intuitive to use. It offers a reasonable blend of features for the price. Ford has added many features that buyers in the current market will be looking for. The sync system lets you control most of what’s going on inside the car. Most notably is the fact that the sync system will now be showing charging information and range. The large touchscreen is going to be easy to use, which is partly why the system has been so successful in recent Fords models.

The infotainment system in the Mach-E is important because the car is supposed to be pioneering in terms of technology. Ford hopes that they can who would-be tech-savvy buyers who are intrigued by the features that the Mach-E offers. The sync system will become more of a driver’s aid in the Mach-E. Features like self-parking and lane assist will take a much larger role in ensuring drivers and their families are safe. There is also a new lane departure warning system that Ford is testing out which will make its debut on the Mach-E. With all of this new technology, the Mach-E is going to be serious competition for the all-electric vehicles already on the market.

8: It Has A Range Of 230 To 300 Miles

When the name “Mustang” comes to mind, the first thing that you think surely isn’t efficiency. But the Mach-E is going to change your perception. The Mach-E comes out of the gate with a reasonable mileage range. You can go about 230 miles conservatively and the larger versions can reach an impressive 300 miles. To give you an idea of how far this is you’d be able to drive on an entire tank of gas for a week in a Honda Civic. So, in reality, this isn’t a bad first range for the car to have. Now, in reality, you’ll be charging the Mach-E every night so it will get a much better range. The real question is going to be if Ford is going to be offering the same charging stations that Tesla does.

With this type of car, having the ability to charge is crucial. Otherwise, you’re going to be stuck parking your car at one of the community charging stations like the ones provided in San Francisco. To get a full charg, you ideally want to leave the car on the charger during the night. But not everyone is going to be able to do this, and oftentimes the vehicle might be left without a full charge. Ford says that the Mach-E will be able to self-charge the battery as well, similar to how the Cybertruck does. Whichever method Ford utilizes to charge the Mach-E, we’re still going to be excited about the progress of the car. The Mach-E offers a stellar amount of value for the money, and you get the Mustang name.

7: It Runs On Electricity

This is the first thing that should stand out with the Mach-E – a Mustang that’s no longer gas powered. Fifty years of heritage is going to change, and not all Mustang owners are happy about it. But in the grand scheme of things, the Mach-E is a trendsetter. The Mach-E should ignite a new sense of brand awareness for the Mustang. You can only expect that owners will be either thrilled or end up hating it. The electric motor has come a long way from the simplistic days of the GM EV1. So naturally, the Mach-E is fitting to bear the Mustang name. Ford has put a lot of effort into helping the vehicle attract a larger audience than the general electric-powered car.

There’s no denying that Ford is going straight at Tesla with a vehicle that is equally as appealing. The Mach-E will offer a superior level of comfort and refinement for a significantly lower price. Carrying the Mustang name is a lot of responsibility. And as the brand continues to progress into the future it will be interesting to see if the Mustang becomes a full-fledged crossover or if it keeps its sports car demeanor. Brands like Mitsubishi have already turned a long time sports cars into crossovers – take the Eclipse Cross, for instance. The Mach-E is going to be in a crowded space nevertheless.

6: It Can Hit 60 MPH In About 3.5 Seconds

Even though Ford has been adamant in saying that the Mach-E wasn’t going to be a sports car. The brand still has put a fair amount of performance behind the vehicle. If there is one thing that Tesla is known for its being fast off the line. So naturally, Ford has to come to the table with something as appealing. The Mach-E boasts a pretty quick 0-60 time, which impressed the automotive community. Again Ford has been quick to let us know that the Mach-E isn’t taking over the sports car appeal of the Mustang coupe. But it’s still nice to know that the Mach-E can hold its own on the race track or the urban streets.

It’s interesting to note that the Mach-E doesn’t lose any of its range depending on how you drive it. So no matter if you put the pedal to the metal or drive modestly, the Mach-E is still going to perform the same way. Mach-E buyers are going to be the traditional electric car buyers. But Ford is also looking to attract a new range of buyers who wouldn’t otherwise be interested in an electric vehicle. The Mach-E offers a lot in the way of comparable driving, so the performance off of the line is only going to bolster the sales. Coupled with the Sync integration and self-driving characteristics, the Mach-E should be a pleasure to drive.

5: It Has Two Trunks

As the internal combustion engine is slowly phased out of the automotive industry, we have to wonder what will happen with all that leftover space. Because an electric engine is much smaller by far, cars will now have the option of two trunks. The Mach-E has two trunks, which were showcased at the reveal. The hatch has a crossover design. The hatchback area allows for all of the usual big cargo that you’d have a crossover buyer transporting. In addition to that, there’s another little trunk in the front of the car where the engine would go.

This cargo area is more suitable for groceries and anything drivers need to store in a hurry. Both of these trunks combine to make a car that has a significant advantage over a lot of its competitors. With electric cars slowly becoming the norm ability to add trunk space in different spaces is going to grow. Ford will find a market for these vehicles because of the added cargo space. Nothing is worse than going out on the town to go shopping only to run out of storage space. With the Mach-E ,you’ll have ample space in an efficient and easy-to-drive vehicle.

4: It Will Be Released In Late 2020

The Mustang Mach-E is going to be here sooner than you think. Ford has already set the release date for 2020. That’s already going to be a groundbreaking year for Ford, as the Bronco is set to return as well. We have to wonder what kind of reception the Mach-E is going to get. Dealers will have an influx of Mach-Es sitting right next to the gas-powered Mustangs. Ford has long been planning the release of the Mach-E as Tesla has been eroding the company’s reputation for being the alternative energy leader. Only two models of the Mach-E are going to hit the market first. Later models will come around 2021.

The GT model, for instance, is going to be the last one out of the gate. When you think about a notable exception to the rule there have been talks about a Shelby version of the Mach-E. Ford might potentially introduce many of the iconic Mustang lines to the Mach-E including the Bullitt and the Mach-1. When you think about an innovative crossover the Mach-E is something very unique in a spectrum of crowded entries. The Mach-E will stand out from the crowd in a lot of ways due to its unique styling and all-electric power plant. We are pretty sure that Ford is going to be playing with all kinds of ideas.

3: There Are Three Technological Style Options

Ford wants the driver to be more in tuned with the road and with the vehicle. The Mach-E will have various driving functions that coincide with the driver’s mood. These various driving functions change the ambient lighting in the vehicle and how the vehicle drives. Almost too smart. Ford wants the Mach-E to be the most technologically advanced all-electric vehicle to date. You can’t go wrong with how the vehicle looks, and its interior functions are going to bring the driver closer to the road than ever before. The three driving functions are Unbridled, Engage, and Whisper. We think that engagement is going to be the option that gets the most Mustang fanatics on board.

Mustang owners are automatically more engaged with the driving characteristics of their vehicles. This is why the sports car brand has become such a fixture of the automotive world. There are many reasons why the Mustang Mach-E is going to be a more intuitive driving experience. The first of which is the technology that’s going into the car. The Mach-E isn’t just an all-electric vehicle with no personality. Ford has injected a lot of life into this car to make it something truly out of this world. About a Tesla or Nissan Leaf the Mach-E is a unique offering that builds on its Mustang heritage.

2: It Has A Glass Roof

As of the current decade, glass roofs are here to stay. Tesla was showing its version of shatterproof glass with the Cybertruck and now Ford is showcasing it with the Mustang Mach-E. We have to wonder what kind of future is in store for the brand if the Mach-E does well. Ford has stated that the glass roof will be a standard feature on the Mach-E. And for those who are wondering, yes, it will be retractable. Of course, there are worries the roof is going to leave you baking in the summertime. Ford has come up with a solution to this as well. The Mach-E will have a special coating on the roof which reflects the heat outwards.

Mach-E buyers will be able to choose between different tints for the glass, an option that many in California and Nevada will appreciate. Mach-E, in general, is a stellar way to showcase alternative energy. Ford has put a lot of focus on the interior aspects of the car. So often automakers are busy designing the outside of the vehicle and lose track of where we spend the majority of our time. The Mach-E is one such car that you’ll enjoy being inside of. For commuters who spend the majority of their life in their car. The glass roof is a great way to give you some type of scenery to look at.

1: The Car Is Equipped With Ford Co-Pilot 360TM 2.0 Technology

Volvo used to be the car company that was obsessed with safety. But nowadays, it’s Ford, and the Mach-E is the first guinea pig for the project. The Co-Pilot program is a series of computerized components that help the car monitor the road. The Mach-E will be constantly monitoring the road and the area around it to ensure that you are driving safe. Things such as parallel parking and backing out will be much easier with the Mach-E. The vehicle will also have self-assisted parking. which a lot of vehicles are now showcasing. If you have never been good at parking, this is a wonderful feature to have. We’ll be curious to see how drivers adapt to the vehicle making their every move.

Knowing that the Mach-E is such a safe ride is a great way to increase consumer satisfaction. Safety is becoming more important than ever. Ford hopes that one day there will be no driver fatalities. With this increased technology, this might very well be a thing in the future. The Co-Pilot has been in development for some time now and this rendition should offer a plethora of new features. In terms of technology and development, the Mach-E is going to offer a serious combination of style and comfort. And it’ll drive for you.
