The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has started to land in the hands of customers in the United States and journalists had the opportunity to check it out.
In this video from Jason at Engineering Explained, we find out about 10 of the EV’s intriguing features. Not everyone will like them, but they do all influence the overall experience of the Mach-E to varying degrees.
One of the cool features that the YouTuber is a big fan of is the keypad located on the B-pillar that allows owners to get inside without the need for a key or their smartphone. Ford first introduced a keypad like this back in 1980 and it remains just as handy today as it was four decades ago. Speaking of the B-pillars, they also house illuminated buttons that are used to open the doors. A small grab handle has also been neatly incorporated just below the button.
Another interesting feature of the Mustang Mach-E is its frunk that includes a drain plug, meaning you can load it up with all kinds of stuff without worrying if something spills out – you can just drain it and, if it gets dirty, you can also rinse it out.
Anyone who buys a Mach-E will also get access to a smartphone application that allows you to lock and unlock the vehicle, start it up, and open up the trunk. The app also displays tire pressures.
Those in the market for a Ford Mustang Mach-E can pick one up from $42,985 before EV tax incentives. The entry-level Standard Range RWD variant has a 75.7 kWh battery and has been rated by the EPA at 230 miles (370 km) of range over the combined cycle.
