The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is an all-electric luxury SUV that is sleek and sporty. While it’s not mechanically related to the standard Ford Mustang, it draws a lot of influence from the iconic Ford when it comes to design and usability. It’s not the fastest EV on the market, and there are others that offer more range (although the Mach-E’s actual range is better than advertised). But we think it offers a great combination of performance and range, especially when you add a well-equipped cabin and great onboard technology.
For 2022, most trims have seen a slight increase in Mach-E usable battery capacity. This slightly increased the range of the Mach-E. For example, last year’s California Route 1 rear-wheel drive model had an EPA-estimated range of 305 miles on a full charge. By 2022, the maximum is 314 miles. Other notable changes this year include all-wheel drive being new to the California Edition, and an Ice White exterior package that will delight those who like the triple white color scheme.
Mach-E’s competitors are capable and numerous and include the Tesla Model Y, Chevrolet’s new Bolt EUV, the all-new Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 (they are related), the Volkswagen ID.4 and the Volvo XC40 Recharge. will be It’s a competitive group, and the Mustang Mach-E certainly has some distinct advantages. To learn more about Mach-E’s biggest hits and misses, read our detailed article below.
Interior of Ford Mustang Mach-E
Designed specifically for the Mach-E’s 15.5-inch central touchscreen, Ford’s latest Sync 4 infotainment system is one of our new favorites. The menu is easy to navigate and has a convenient shortcut bar that constantly updates based on recently used functions. Also, unlike the Tesla Model Y, the Mach-E also features his 10.2-inch digital drive cluster, displaying relevant information in the driver’s field of view.
The front seats don’t offer as many adjustment options as a typical luxury sedan, but most drivers should be able to settle into a seat position that works for them. Mach-E Fastback Despite its roofline, visibility is surprisingly good, and getting in and out of the cabin is almost effortless. Mach-E’s push-button door opener is pretty cool and works well, but I wonder how robust it will be over time.
Technology of Ford Mustang Mach-E
Mach-E nails its internal engineering. We like the big 15.5″ touchscreen in the middle, supported by physical controls like the volume rocker. Unlike the Model Y, there’s smartphone integration from Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and even wireless Yes (although you can connect via a USB cable). Ford’s in-car navigation system is responsive and cleanly designed, but not overly minimalist like competing systems.
The Premium Edition includes a superb 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system that creates a rich audio scene, with AM/FM access and XM satellite radio. Our tester also included a full suite of advanced driver aids, including adaptive cruise control, lane centering, blind spot monitoring, and a 360-degree camera. This is an early production prototype, so some assistive devices are not available, but things work fine.
Driving of Ford Mustang Mach-E
The Mach-E may be a wagon-like SUV, but it offers the speed and maneuverability you’d expect from one that bears the Mustang badge. We looked after a premium Trim Mach E with range battery and all-wheel drive. On the Edmunds test track, it accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2 seconds, although some competing EVs are slightly faster (Tesla Model Y, etc.), but overall, at least the tested version of Mach-E is very quick.
Ford has tuned the driving dynamics so that even this all-wheel-drive SUV feels like a rear-wheel-drive sports sedan. It’s all about spinning, playful and engaging. There is a lot of movement in the transition, but it is calm and steady.
In normal driving, the Mach-E delivers a buttery smooth experience. The regenerative braking works well, and one-pedal driving is possible, where you can stop completely just by taking your foot off the accelerator. In fact, I prefer doing this to using the brake pedal. It’s a little hazy and grippy, and in normal driving it’s difficult to stop smoothly. Hopefully Ford can improve the tuning in future air software updates.
Comfortable measures of Ford Mustang Mach-E
Highlights include suspension that does a great job soaking up big bumps in the road, a cab that is well insulated from wind and ambient noise, and a great, easy-to-use climate control system. The available seats and steering wheel heaters heat up fairly quickly, but we welcome the option of ventilated seats for warmer weather.
The seats are fairly comfortable, the padding soft and comfortable like memory foam, but with good ventilation. However, sheets are missing some important customizations, such as: B. Lower leg cushion extension for long-legged drivers. There is very little lateral support to hold you in place. Unfortunately, there are no more adjustable seats available.
Storage capacity of Ford Mustang Mach-E
Mach-E’s step-through trunk helps maximize cargo space. Ford says it has 29 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats. It’s not as forgiving as the Model Y, especially under the floor. However, there is a very clever flexible cargo covers that can be attached to the tailgate and folded to one side or removed completely. Folding, split rear seats increase the Mach-E’s cargo capacity. The front trunk is a bit small, but has drainage holes so it can be used as a cooler with ice that can be emptied later.
A dual-tier console at the front provides ample storage for personal items and makes the forward cabin appear more spacious. The side door pockets are decently wide but short in height. The wireless charging pad in front of the cup holder looks like it can hold two phones, but it’s really only for one.
Do you have small children? The anchor point for the child seat is behind the slot in the backrest. Less noticeable than the Euro-style Isofix anchors, but better access.
Range and efficiency of Ford Mustang Mach-E
The all-wheel drive Mach-E with extended range battery has an estimated range of 270 miles and consumes 37 kWh of battery power per 100 miles. Both are average figures for luxury EVs.
The Mach-E was more efficient, using 33.1 kWh per 100 miles (remember, for electric cars, lower numbers are better). It also traveled 304 miles on a full battery, exceeding the EPA range estimate. Most electric vehicles have exceeded EPA estimates in testing, with the exception of Tesla’s car.
With a 150-kW DC fast charger, Ford claims the Mach-E can add up to 61 miles in as little as 10 minutes or go from 10% to 80% battery charge in 45 minutes. Ford also has a home charging station for sale called Connected Charge. It’s a powerful charger that you can use to add up to 30 miles of charge per hour that works similarly to Tesla’s Wall Connector in concept.
Models of Ford Mustang Mach-E
The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E is classified as an all-electric SUV, but it is more of a wagon than an SUV. It has five seats and four trim levels: Select, Premium, California Route 1, and GT. Most come in a variety of battery and electric motor configurations, which affect power outputs and the EPA-estimated range you can drive on a full battery charge. The lineup consists of:
Rear-wheel drive (RWD) for 247 miles of range, 266 horsepower, and 317 pound-feet of torque.
AWD (All wheel drive): 224 miles of range; 266 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque.

AWD with an extended-range battery has a range of 312 miles, 346 horsepower, and 428 pound-feet of torque.
Standard-range battery, rear and all-wheel drive: same as normal
Long-range battery, rear-wheel drive: 303 miles range; 290 HP and 317 lb-ft
Long Range Battery, 4WD: 277 miles range; 346 HP and 428 lb ft

The performance edition offers 260 miles of range, with the same features as the regular version.
Most recommended model of Ford Mustang Mach-E
When it comes to configuring a Mustang Mach-E, the costs can quickly add up. The base Select trim has plenty of standard features, but we recommend upgrading to the Premium trim. It includes a number of convenience and luxury features as well as the most powertrain options. If you want a white interior and exterior, the Premium trim includes the Ice White Appearance package. The standard battery should be sufficient for daily driving, but if you intend to travel long distances, you should consider the extended-range battery.
