The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E received official EPA range estimates on Monday ahead of customer deliveries in December. As promised at the reveal in 2019, the Mustang Mach-E will be available with up to 300 miles of range.

Range-extended models with an 88-kwh lithium-ion battery pack will have up to 300 miles of range with rear-wheel drive and 270 miles of range with all-wheel drive.
The Mustang Mach-E base model, called Select, costs $43,995 including destination, but that's before factoring in the $7,500 federal tax credit. Premium models start at $48,100 with the Standard Range battery and $53,1000 with the Extended Range battery. Stepping up to the California Route 1 costs $50,900, while the GT runs to $61,600 according to Ford's ordering tool.
Ford's said the Mustang Mach-E will be able to add 47 miles of range with 10 minutes of fast charging on a 150-kw charger.
The Mustang Mach-E has a familiar silhouette with front and rear end designs clearly inspired by the Mustang coupe. The roofline and rear haunches say Mustang, but the four-door crossover SUV body style says family hauler.
