New Ford Mustang Mach-E Test Drive! An EV for My Garage?

21 mar. 2021
136 912 Vizionare

From one Ford Mustang to a very different one, my first drive in the Mustang Mach-E! After travelling across country in my old school muscle car GT500, it's time to swap to the Mach-E e-AWD ER to see what the future of the brand looks like and whether it could be one for me.
The GT500 represents the ultimate of the Mustang brand to date, in terms of power and performance from a combustion engine, but things are changing and the brand is effectively being re-purposed for Ford's EVs going forwards that have begun with the Mach-E. While a GT variant is due to arrive in future, the 368hp e-AWD ER is the flagship for 2021 and certainly grabs my attention having recently entered into the EV world for the first time myself with my Taycan Turbo S.
Sharing numerous design elements with the traditional Mustangs, the Mach-E has a familiar looking 'grille', fastback style roof and taillight design. On the inside however it's all new with a large touchscreen for control of the various features including the driving modes like 'Unbridled' for Sport.
The intrigue to me though as we look towards the future and more electric cars is how this actually stacks up and whether it could be one for e to consider in future, particularly considering my growing Ford collection and the general shift in technology. What do you think, should I buy a Mustang Mach-E to give it a go?
Thanks for watching, Tim

  • Since it launched I've been curious about the Mustang Mach-E, and now having covered so many miles in my GT500 even more so. Do you think the upcoming Mach-E GT could be one for my growing Ford collection?

    • @Bill Minkowitz You don't actually need very many high speed chargers. One every 100 miles would be more than enough. What you really do want, is a Level 2 charger(240V 32 or 48amp AC charger) at the ski resort(I have 2 in my garage), so you can charge up after you arrive. This is not hard, and it's coming.

    • @Frank RenewablesCheap Not nonsense, reality. The majority of people I know take more than 150 miles trips on a regular basis, whether for travel, visiting family, or winter activities. Charging infrastructure is still virtually nonexistent outside of urban centers in the Northeast, and the percentage of fast chargers laughable. If manufacturers really want to hit their ev goals they need to do exponentially better. Just because something is doable, doesn’t mean it is worth putting up with.

      Bill MinkowitzBill MinkowitzAcum 23 Zile
    • @Bill Minkowitz Rubbish. If you have a charger in the garage, this thing will probably go 150 miles in below zero Fahrenheit. How many people go more than that in one day? If you are going on a long trip, you will need more chargers than usual, but it will do it.

  • They should’ve just launched a new sub brand. Using the mustang name makes zero sense. I get they did it to get ‘luxury’ and to make it seem experimental as Ford cars are known for being formal. But they threw the mustang name outta the window

  • You know what is really stupid is why didn't anyone try to put autonomous technology in a gasoline car? This is so stupid! Sorry Shmee but we should have all this tech in gasoline cars not electric! What is the point? of having a car that don't make noise or produce that smell and feeling or rawness! it is really not a car anymore! You can not connect physically or emotionally with a vehicle like this! It is to computer controlled and no connection with you! except for quietness and fastness and short range! When every other car we feel a connection with longer drives, smells, noise, that we have felt all our lives! This is sacrilege to car culture!

  • I like how the phone app controls a bunch of stuff. I pay $20/month for a phone app on my Genesis G80 and all I can really do is start the car and sometimes that doesn't even work. I was thinking about buying a Tesla but I think I will wait for the Mach-E GT version. It seems like a better vehicle.

  • As someone who loves Android, I'd still buy a Tesla as I'm just a fanboy lol but also because of the supercharger network. Maybe even I can afford one, I'll think about other EV's. Also I love how you drive in these videos way more than Doug does.

When kind lost mustang name me. Then should been straight mach-E . Hope performance model add some racing flair like mach E race car looks with wing in front lip

  • Looks more mini crv than car..sits higher, higher roof line.. Doesnt look amything like a car or mustang just has couple style cues.. Just throwing mustang doesnt make it a mustang.. Like chevy bringing out blazer year or so back.. I had a (s-10) blazer in 2001... It was on a s-10 frame, a truckframe.. New blazer basically a crv, which are un's aka a car... Again like the new chevy equalnox.. We have previous body style, which is bigger than newest model, totally different model now, only did that cause chevy had to figure where place blazer in the line up, which is same size as older equalnox... And then chevy had to bring back trail blazer name when used to be same frame as blazer before(s-10), but the new trail blazer like the new blazer and new equalnox are all totally new bodies yet useing older name all just to create freakin like half a dozen cross overs vehicles, not counting tahoo and suburbon.. Equalnox originally came out to replace blazer and geo/chevy tracker. Now they bring back blazer, bring a seperate trail blazer when before had same frame as blazer, and new equalnox.. So created one model to replace 2 models, now create totally new model equalnox to make room for 2 totally seperate models in blazer and trail blazer.. So um like remove 2 plus 1, remove that body to create new version to re add 2 seperate models.. Seems they shoulda just never created equalnox and left blazer and then rebrand the geo/chevy tracker as a trail blazer.. Confusing.. Just like this.. Coulda just created a mustang and thennnnn take motor or install batteries and redo interrior, but mainly kept exterrior style, instead they create new model and throw a horse on it and call it a mustang

  • I’m not a fan of the ev movement. I wish there would have been more of a push for e85/e90 or even just going diesel. Since the charging stations are going to be using diesel generator. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Especially with the fact that most power grids won’t be able to sustain the power needs for making a majority of people go ev. 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

The only way a daily driver EV can work currently, is with the Tesla supercharger network, which this obviously doesn't have.
