Ford Debuts the 2021 Mustang Mach-E and Hints at Release Date
Normal drivers may have heard the buzz surrounding the Mustang Mach-E, all-new for 2021, and the first ever 4-door Mustang. Perched on an appropriately splendid pedestal, the Mustang Mach-E announced itself in muscular fashion. This five-seat SUV is the first change to the Mustang lineup in 55 years, bragging all-electric appointments for an EPA-estimated 300-mile range with the available extended range battery and rear wheel drive.
Drivers seeking supercharged performance will do well to check out the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, which will achieve:
- 0-60 in the mid-3 second range
- 459 hp
- 612 lb-ft of torque
As of right now, the expected release for the 2021 Mustang Mach-E is Fall 2020, and interested shoppers can reserve and design their SUV now! You will be able to confirm your order as early as Summer 2020, so contact Sam Leman Ford to get your pre-order rolling. In the meantime, we’ve put together a comprehensive overview on the Mach-E specs and lineup details!
Ford Cares With FordPass
As EVs have grown in popularity and public consciousness, the issue of whether or not there are enough charging stations has come up. Thankfully, Ford knows, cares, and has planned accordingly. With their FordPass™ Charging Network, they offer 12,000 public charging stations and 35,000 plugs in North America.
Drivers who choose the Mustang Mach-E can take advantage of two years of complimentary access to the network. What’s more, Ford’s network includes Electrify America DC fast chargers, which have the ability to add an estimated 47 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
The Stars of the Show
Ford brought a range of fresh production models for Chicagoland auto enthusiasts to explore, including:
- Mustang Shelby GT500
- Super Duty
- Transit Connect
The Mustang Mach-E wasn’t the only show-stopper, though. Ford also brought out the stunningly sexy 2020 GT, which flaunted a Liquid Carbon exterior, and boasted a cap of up to 660 hp.
Of course Ford brought in a few CAS staples, like the Built Ford Tough Chicago Bears F-150, as well as the much beloved (or reviled?) Hank the Robot.
