While the Mustang Mach E is no traditional mustang in aesthetic, it makes up for what it lacks in being completely emission-free. Recent price drops have incentivized consumers to purchase the new electric vehicle (EV) from Ford, and new range estimates are sure to confirm those who were previously considering the 2021 model.
On Monday, Ford announced that it had reached its target numbers with the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the upcoming 2021 Mustang Mach E. The vehicle earned EPA range ratings of 300 miles for its premium extended range RWD model, 270 miles for its extended range RWD model, 230 miles for its standard range RWD model, and 211 miles for its standard range AWD model.
Along with the news, Ford announced that deliveries of the Mustang Mach E would begin in December.

Darren Palmer, Ford’s global director of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) said “This validation by the EPA comes at a perfect time as the Mustang Mach-E is gearing up to take on the open road.”
As the world begins transitioning to zero-emission vehicles, there has been lots of speculation surrounding the roles of traditional combustion engine auto giants and how they will fare. With this announcement, and likely more yet to come, Ford has begun cementing itself in the EV world, further increasing its likelihood of surviving the major transition. If other brands don’t start doing the same, they may not be so lucky.
