2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E & # 39; s online configurator is up, which means you can now reserve five different variants: First Edition, Select, Premium, California RT.1 Edition, and GT. You can determine rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, standard range battery and extended range battery. Here is the Mach-E I would buy.
Now it has been well established that I am a cheap bastard so it will come as no surprise that the Mach-E I would choose is the base "Select" model, starting at $ 44,995 including the $ 1100 destination – and delivery fee. Take away the $ 7,500 federal tax credit, and I'll just drop $ 37,495.
For that amount of money, I would get a 255 HP, 306 pound RWD car with 230 miles estimated range thanks to the "standard range" 75.7 kWh lithium-ion battery. Zero to 60 km / h, Ford says, should happen in the low six-second range. Maximum charging speed will be less than all other models, with "up to 115 kW" with DC charging capacity of 150 kW on other Mach-Es.
Inside, the base model still gets the big-axle 15.5-inch touchscreen and the super-wide and short The 10.2-inch gauge cluster behind the fine three-wheel steering wheel. There is also a wireless charging pad, crazy electric locking levers for electric doors and active safety features such as Lane Keeping, blind spot monitoring, Auto High Beams, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go and navigation.  Unfortunately, I would be stuck with "Black Onyx ActiveX" seats that, at least in the pictures, don't look as good as the Light Space Gray seats available in the $ 51,700 Premium trim. Here's a look at it:
When it comes to the outside, the base car gets 18-inch aluminum wheels and LED headlights . I chose Space White as the color, because the finest Mach-E I saw at the California reveal was a white, non-GT (I'm not a big fan of GT's grille), and while I bet the car had a Star White Metallic Tri-Coat paint job, I'm a cheap bastard who would never drop $ 600 on paint.
Anyway, it's the Mach-E I'd buy if I actually wanted a new EV crossover. Here is the configurator . Build a Mach-E to your liking and justify yourself in the comments below.
