While we already know most of theMustang Mach E’s specsdue to a leak on Ford’s website on Thursday, we’re bound to find out some new things at the event.
In particular, we already know that the car will start at ~ $ (k) $ 43, 895 minus $ 7, 500 US federal tax credit), though the “premium” and “first edition” models which launch late 2020 will be more pricey ($ 50 .6k and $ 59 .9k pre-incentive). Other models launch in early 2021.
The Mach E will have 0 – 60 performance of between 3-6 seconds depending on options, and have 230 – 300 miles of all-electric range. It will charge at a max rate of ~ 47 miles every 10 minutes on a kW DC charger. )
We also know what the car will look like. Aftertest mules, thenrenders, thenspy shots, Ford’s website leak finally showed us a truelook at the car without camouflageand we’ve even seensome real life photosscreengrabbed from a leaked press video .
There are a few remaining questions, though: how big is the Mustang Mach E, compared to other crossover SUVs? How efficient is it, and what exactly is the charge rate? And finally, where the heck are the door handles?
These questions and more will be answered tonight, in Ford’s livestream which you can view here. It goes live at 5: 50 PM PST / 8: 50 EST:

Ford is finally taking electric seriously, and seems to be doing it in a big way. The Mach E is one of the few cars designed from the ground up with specs thatlook like they challenge Tesla directlywith a quick, capable, well-designed electric vehicle at a reasonable price and launching into the same market at roughly the same time. We’re super excited to see how this all turns out.
