Ford Mustang Mach-E EV of the Year  

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is the newest car in the classic Ford Mustang family in decades. While that alone has generated much excitement among Mustang fans, the fact that the Ford Mustang Mach-E is already an award-winning car makes it even more impressive. The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is the recipient of this year's annual “Electric Vehicle (EV) of the Year” by Car and Driver. Car and Driver selected the Mach-E as the winner of the award based on numerous factors. Primarily, the Mustang won the award for the fact that it brings good value to consumers, is fun and sporty to drive, and compels car shoppers to buy an electric vehicle over a gasoline-driven car.

About the Ford Mustang Mach-E

The Ford Mustang Mach-E brings innovation to the Mustang lineup in many ways. To start, the Mustang Mach-E is an SUV rather than a sporty coupe. It belongs to the class of luxury SUVs, which also means that it makes the Mustang competitive in more key categories. The Mustang gets a leg up on the competition with all the features that it offers. One key distinction separating the Mustang from its peers is that it provides an exhilarating driving experience. Most of the Mustang Mach-E's performance features vary by trim level. Additionally, the SUV is available in several drivetrains, which give it varying levels of performance and range. The Mustang starts off with the Select trim level, which is available in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Using all-wheel drive and a standard battery, the base Mach-E gets 211 miles in range, which increases to 230 miles in range with rear-wheel drive. Power output is the same for both at 266 HP. The second trim gets 305 miles of range and more power at 290 HP. The Premium trim level reaches 346 HP with all-wheel drive and 300 miles in electric range with an extended battery. Even more power and driving excitement comes with the GT, which gets 480 HP and 634 LB-FT for torque at most.

In addition to its performance, the Mustang Mach-E offers great value with standard features, including numerous safety aids, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a digital instrument display, and simulated leather seats.

EV of the Year

This year, Car and Driver awarded the Mustang Mach-E “EV of the Year” based on its impressive performance capabilities. The luxury SUV was also selected for the value it provides consumers and the fact that it convinces shoppers to purchase an electric car.
