Seven of the Best Things About the Mustang Mach-E
When it was first announced, there was a fair amount of controversy and loud voices about the Ford Mustang Mach-E. While plenty of people were interested in what it was bringing to the road, there was a minority who seemed uncertain whether they wanted to complain more about a crossover SUV getting the Mustang name or an electric vehicle (EV) getting the pony badging. In the years since it first hit the road, however, the Mustang Mach-E has beautifully silenced most critics by delivering an incredible driving experience that is every bit worthy of its legendary name. Gone are the days when an EV was synonymous with meager performance or a listless driving experience; few models symbolize that, as well as the Mach-E.
As your Ford EV dealer, you know the folks at Faith’s Ford are already fans of the Mustang Mach-E and everything it has going for it. And yet, they still have customers who seem uncertain about it or almost guilty about the fact that they are interested in the Mach-E, as though they’re somehow betraying their heritage as Ford fans. There’s no need to feel that way, however, because the Mustang Mach-E has more than earned its place in the halls of automotive legend. To prove that point, let’s look at a few of Faith’s Ford’s favorite things about this beauty, and you’ll see why they love everything it offers.
Thing #1 – Instant Torque and Blistering Acceleration
Any time someone tells you that an EV can’t be a sports car or deliver impressive performance, you need only reply with two words: instant torque. This is one of those things you must feel to fully appreciate; words simply don’t do it justice, but it is one of the reasons EVs have become so popular. Zero emissions and being able to charge your car at home are great, but if you like the rush of driving a vehicle that is simply a blast, nothing beats the instant torque that you get from an EV.
The Mustang Mach-E takes advantage of this to deliver an incredible driving experience that is pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face. There are different models available, and some focus on getting you the best range possible, but if you want unbeatable performance, then you need to check out the GT and GT Performance Edition. The GT can go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds, while the GT Performance Edition clocks in at just 3.5 seconds to hit 60 mph, delivering an incredible driving experience that leaves others in your emission-free dust.
Thing #2 – Two Great Motor Options
Speaking of the options available to you, you can get different configurations for the Mustang Mach-E, just like conventional gas-powered vehicles. If anything, you have more options here, with the 2024 Mustang Mach-E giving you four different combinations of motors and battery systems. You have a 72 kWh battery available with good performance and range or a 91 kWh battery if you are looking for something that can go longer between charges. A single-motor model is a great way to go if you are interested in entry-level EV performance. At the same time, dual-motor options give you a Mustang Mach-E with electrified all-wheel drive (eAWD) performance that is incredibly fun to drive.
Thing #3 – Multiple Trims to Meet Your Needs
These different motor and battery configurations come with various trim levels that you can choose from, letting you customize your overall experience to get just what you need. If you want to keep things simple, Select and Premium models are available, designed to get things done and give you a fantastic EV experience. On the other hand, the California Route 1 delivers improved power, while the GT and GT Performance Editions take things even further, giving you sports car performance with SUV functionality. And if you want something truly unique, then there’s…
Thing #4 – The All-New Rally Model
New for the 2024 model year, the Mustang Mach-E Rally is an EV designed to leave the road behind and let you conquer the trail without creating any emissions while you enjoy the great outdoors. For starters, the Rally has a pair of motors for eAWD functionality that deliver an incredible 480 hp and a targeted 650 lb-ft of torque, creating remarkable power for conquering the trail. With a unique RallySport Drive Mode for heading off-road, a raised and specially tuned MagneRide suspension, underbody shielding, and a front fascia that houses LED fog lamps for improved visibility in the darkest conditions, this is a new, all-electric off-road beast.
Thing #5 – Expanded Charging Options
The Mustang Mach-E is incredibly easy to own and enjoy, supporting a wide range of charging options. You can utilize an outlet at home for Level 1 charging, have a home charger installed for Level 2 charging, or take advantage of DC Fast Charging stations in public to get a faster charge and be back on the road in no time. Currently, you have access to more than 88,000 public chargers across North America on Ford’s BlueOval Charge Network. To make things even more convenient, however, Ford has partnered with Tesla to let the Mustang Mach-E utilize another 12,000 Tesla Superchargers throughout North America starting in the spring of 2024, making it easier than ever to charge your Mach-E.
Thing #6 – Bold Design and Functionality
You might’ve noticed some uncertainty about the idea of a Mustang crossover SUV—after decades of pony car engineering, how could a crossover be a Mustang? All it took was one good look at the gorgeous design and stunning lines of the Mach-E to understand that it’s absolutely a Mustang and honors that name in every way. While it is undoubtedly a crossover, and no one could mistake it for a sports car, the sleek shapes and beautiful sweeping curves of the Mustang Mach-E were clearly designed to get attention and turn heads. This crossover refuses to follow the herd; instead, it stands out above the rest and leaves everyone else behind—don’t worry, though, because the view from back there isn’t bad at all.
Thing #7 – Stunning and Innovative Inside
Although interior features depend on which Mustang Mach-E model you’re looking at, they all share a gorgeous interior design that welcomes you the moment you open the door. You’ll find a spacious interior with seating for up to five passengers; the low floors give you and everyone else plenty of leg- and headroom, ensuring everyone can stretch out. This makes the Mach-E a fantastic choice for long road trips; it has plenty of cargo space for loading up with everything you need before you hit the road. The drainable, washable frunk is perfect for use as a cooler—making this an ideal tailgating machine—while a standard 15.5-inch Infotainment display inside immediately lets you know you’re getting into an advanced piece of machinery designed with the latest technology.
See the Mustang Mach-E for Yourself
To be honest, we could keep going—we talked about the ease of charging, but we didn’t even get into how quickly you can charge the Mustang Mach-E at the 10,000+ DC Fast Chargers on the BlueOval Charge Network. Not to mention the innovative technology beyond the massive Infotainment screen, like Ford BlueCruise hands-free driving technology. At a certain point, however, words simply fail to do the Mustang Mach-E justice, and you need to see it and feel the performance it delivers for yourself. The good news is that you can do exactly that when you visit the amazing team at Faith’s Ford and discover your favorite things about the Mach-E. Don’t worry; they’re happy to help you make your list, and the friendly people there can assist you as you choose the Mustang Mach-E that best meets your needs.
