The Mach-E handles beautifully around corners and gives you that planted feeling we love in performance vehicles. It's not as fast as some of the other EVs out there but overall it's a great experience, especially in the GT and GT Performance trim.
The interior is spacious and the glass roof option gives good headroom, however it's not as wide as some other EVs meaning if you need to fit 3 carseats in the back it may be a challenge.
With a large hatchback and massive frunk the Mach-E only comes in second to the Model Y in this category. For most everyone it will be plenty of room, if you need more consider the Rivian R1T or Model X.
In the more expensive trims the Mach-E can feel sleek and modern while still maintaining that sporty vibe the Mustang name demands. It's not a pure luxury car but compared to the average CUV on the market the Mach-E is going to feel elevated.
The Mach-E is priced competitively with the only real challenge being the legacy dealer model which can lead to pricey markups. If you can get this for MSRP it generally is a great value.
The Mach-E uses the CCS connector which means it supports all major networks in the US not named Tesla. They're plentiful but the performance of these chargers isn't as good as some may desire, plus there can be hefty fees associated with usage if you're not careful.
Ford under promises and over delivers when it comes to range. In several real-world tests the longer range versions delivered well over 300 miles of real world range making them some of the best on the market, however they can't quite touch the likes of a Lucid Air at this price point.
The Mach-E can charge add 150 miles in 30 minutes as shown in real-world tests which isn't the best out there, but decent if you're going on regional road trips. Of course, the main thing is to charge overnight and generally never have to think about charging.
The tech in the Mach-E is top tier. It supports Android Auto and Apple Carplay meaning almost all your existing apps just work natively, and with a massive screen in the middle you have plenty of room to display them. In addition, having a screen behind the wheel means you don't need to clutter up your infotainment screen with things like speed or directions.
