Fifty-five years ago, Ford revolutionized the world of sports cars when they introduced the first Ford Mustang. They’ve don’t it again and this time, the revolution will be electrified! Introducing the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, the world’s first electric performance car. Mike Murphy Ford wants to give Peoria drivers a sneak peek at the new electric Mustang from Ford, then check out our Mustang inventory.
Let’s start with how the electric Mustang upholds its rich legacy: its sleek styling is a nod to the iconic predecessor, which the name pays homage to the Ford Mustang Mach 1 models of the past. The all-wheel drive GT model generates the kind of power East Peoria drivers expect from a Mustang — 459 hp and 612 ft-lb of torque. And all of this without gasoline! It’s powered by your choice of two batteries and an electric engine that feeds power to the wheels. Your battery choices include:
The EPA-estimated range of between 210 and 300 miles, depending on which battery pack and engine you choose for your Pekin drives. The highest-mileage charge range on a Mustang Mach-E is 300 miles if you opt for the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive. The charge range on a Mustang Mach-E with all-wheel drive is 210 miles.
Ford has the largest charging network in the world with over 35,000 stations in the U.S., so it’s easy to find a place to plug in the fast-charging Mustang. The included mobile charger adds an additional 30 miles per overnight charge from a 120-volt outlet, or an 80 percent charge overnight from a 220-volt outlet. For more charging power at home, Ford offers a home charging station that can generate a full charge overnight.
In addition to the innovative technology under the hood of the electric Mustang, you’ll find plenty of state-of-the-art technology in the cabin, too. With seating for five, the interior of the Mustang Mach-E feels more like a crossover than a sports car. The battery is located under the floor, which means two trunks, including one that’s waterproof. The sleek dashboard houses a 15.5-inch vertical touchscreen that helps drivers control amenities like:
To keep you connected, Ford put their next-generation SYNC® infotainment system in each Mach-E. Using machine learning, SYNC allows Mach-E drivers to customize their driving experience. Ford plans to roll out software updates to the SYNC® system so you’re always on top of the game. It’s topped off with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, and a Bang & Olufsen audio system.
