Tesla is finally getting a challenge by the biggest US carmaker. The 2021 Ford Mach E is an all-electric SUV with a range of 300 miles. Mustang-inspired model is not quite a surprise since Ford was bragging about its electrification for a while. Finally, this is something we already wanted to see.
The competition in the electric class is already tough. Mercedes EQC and Jaguar I-Pace are already here. We don’t have to mention Tesla, which launches the second crossover. But, all these companies are premium carmakers, so Ford’s product will be significantly cheaper. Depending on the level of features and size of a battery, the cost for the 2021 Ford Mach E will be between $45,000 and $60,000.
If our opinion is not important, then let’s see what the first name coming to your mind when we talk about electric cars, has to say. Elon Musk, Tesla’s CEO, congratulated Ford and its first electric SUV. Well, he confirmed something everyone knows for a long time – the future is electric. Ford’s move will make other companies turn to the same source of power in the near future.
2021 Ford Mach E is Aggressive, Sweet, and Sexy
Ford gambles with the nose of its latest product. It is one of these polarizing details – you will love it or hate it. Other companies are dropping a traditional grille since electric cars don’t need extra cooling. The 2021 Ford Mach E is not as minimalistic as fans expected. The interior is pretty spacious, while we don’t have to waste words for the equipment. We have to remind you that the electric battery is under seats, leaving the engine room empty. Ford turns it into a frunk (front trunk).
The 2021 Ford Mach E SUV is just the beginning of the realization of big electrification plans. The US carmaker is going to build more EVs, PHEVs, and hybrids. F-150 and Mustang are on the list of priorities. But, the recharging network has to grow first. Soon, Ford will build 12,000 stations for all-electric vehicles. Their buyers will have a 2-year trial. Tesla’s network of supercharger stations is available only for Tesla’s vehicles. On Ford’s points, you can recharge Nissan Leaf, Volvo XC40, Jaguar I-Pace…
