Check out this official window sticker.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has been in the news a lot lately and this isn't going to change for the foreseeable future. This all-electric, performance-focused SUV is a big deal for the Blue Oval as it's about to embark on a major EV product surge, such as the battery-powered F-150 due in 2022. But one of the big questions we've still have regarding the Mach-E is its EPA rated driving range. The official report is expected at any time.
But today, a member of the Mach-E Forum has posted an image of their soon to arrive EV's window sticker that reveals the government agency's official rating of the all-wheel-drive extended range Premium trim.
As you can see, it's officially rated at 270 miles, the exact figure Ford says it targeted all along. This is also good news for other targets across the Mach-E lineup. Those trims include the base Select, followed by the Premium, California Route 1, First Edition, and GT. To compare, the Tesla Model Y AWD Long Range is rated at 326 miles on a single charge, and 303 miles for the Performance version.
The Mach-E will launch with two battery pack sizes, 68 kWh and 88 kWh for Extended Range versions. Those looking to hopefully achieve the maximum range possible should probably opt for the Premium RWD which Ford believes will hit 300 miles.
The most affordable Mach-E, the RWD Select, should achieve around 230 miles. It's also important to remember these range figures could change even after EPA certification. How so? Over-the-air updates, a process Tesla has become known for. Software coding changes can improve an EV's range without the owner ever having to step foot in a dealership.
Excluding the destination fee, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E will begin at $42,895 while the Model Y's starting price is $49,990. It's also worth bearing in mind Tesla exhausted its federal EV tax credits at the beginning of this year. Mach-E customers, however, can still benefit from that $7,500 federal tax incentive.
