EPA agrees with Ford’s 300-mile range estimate on the 2021 Mustang Mach-E

Technology

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on Monday announced certified range numbers for several variants of Ford’s upcoming all-electric Mustang Mach-E.

The standard-range eAWD version of the Mach-E received a final EPA-estimated range of 211 miles, which is based on a full charge. The standard-range RWD variant hit its goal of 230 miles of range, the agency said, while the extended-range eAWD model was right on target at 270 miles. The premium extended-range eAWD Mach-E received an EPA-estimated range of 300 miles.

How does that compare to the competition?

A quick check of Tesla’s website reveals that the cheapest Model 3 (starting at $37,990) has an estimated range of 263 miles. A long range plus Model X gets you 371 miles of range starting at $79,990, and if price is no barrier, a Plaid version of the Model S has an estimated range of over 520 miles on a single charge (and starts at $139,990).

Lucid Motors, meanwhile, said its all-electric Air sedan will have a range of 517 miles in its Grand Touring trim, which starts at $131,500 (after a federal tax credit).

Ford said the first deliveries to customers in the US will start in December.
