What are the pros and cons of the 2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E?
Pro: Something for everyone
A huge pro in regard to the all-electric Mustang Mach-E is its trim variety. With four different versions to choose from, you can use the Mach-E as a speedy family crossover, or upgrade to the Performance Edition GT to have a sleek, unique EV with some serious power.
- Select trim starts at an MSRP under $44,000

Pro: Impressive specs for the average driver
As you’ll see below, the variety of trim levels and powertrain options on the Mach-E ensures there’s an option for everyone, but better still, delivers consistently good performance no matter what you choose.
While the exact numbers vary, specifications such as acceleration, range, and horsepower are all more than adequate and rival many of the crossover competitors out there.
Con: Limited availability
Due to this high demand and global supply chain constraints, all 2022 versions of the
Mach-E are sold out online.
Unlike Ford’s F-150 Lightning which will take longer to get production ramped up, the shortage of Mustang Mach-E’s should be temporary—2023 models will go on sale soon.
It’s important to point out that 2022 Ford retail models are sold out, but you might still be able to drive off in one this year. Select dealerships may still have 2022 Mustang Mach-Es on their lots. You can

How much does a Ford Mustang Mach-E cost?
The lowest-priced Select trim currently starts at an MSRP of $43,895 and can go as high as $66,995 for the Performance Edition of the GT model.
With two additional Mach-E variants priced in between the two above, there are plenty of options to meet your EV needs and budget.
Electrek, the Ford Mustang Mach-E currently qualifies for the full $7,500 federal tax credit. It’s important to note, however, that the
federal credit qualifiesyour Mustang purchase for up to $7,500 based on your annual income. Consult with a tax professional to determine and confirm how much you qualify for.
Breaking down the range estimates and performance specs of Ford’s electric Mustang
As the spark that kicked off the company's zero-emissions future, Ford removed the engine from its famed sports car in favor of an electric powertrain and battery pack. Aside from the GT model which only comes with dual-motor all-wheel drive (AWD), Mach-E customers also have the option of single-motor rear-wheel drive (RWD), which delivers less power, but at a lower cost.
The motors are powered by one of two battery options—the standard 70 kWh pack delivers 266 hp, while the larger 91 kWh battery can deliver horsepower between 290-480 hp, depending on what model you choose.
Both packs offer varying levels of torque and acceleration, so we’ve broken it all out for you below and have also included range:
Acceleration (0-60 mph)
EPA est. Range
Premium (Standard Battery RWD)
Premium (Standard Battery AWD)
Premium (Extended Battery RWD)
Premium (Extended Battery AWD)
CA Route 1 (RWD)
CA Route 1 (AWD)
How long does it take to charge a Ford Mustang Mach-E?
Aside from the Select model which can only reach a max charge rate of 115 kW on a fast charger, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has the capability to charge at speeds up to 150 kW.
For example, a RWD Mustang Mach-E with the extended battery pack can replenish from 10%-80% in 45 minutes at a DC fast charger. The standard range battery pack can recharge the same amount in 38 minutes.
If you were to charge at home using a Ford Connected Charge Station (for an additional fee) you can charge your Mustang Mach-E from 0% to 100% in about 10.9 hours. On average that’s approximately 28 miles of range per hour charged.
Type of Charger
Average Charge Time
Level 3 DC Fast Charger (DCFC) (150 kW charge rate)
Ford Charge Station Pro (Level 2 AC Charger)
240V outlet (Level 2 AC)
110V outlet (Level 1 AC)

There are plenty more similarities and differences between the trim levels of the 2022 Mustang Mach-E, so we recommend checking out
What is the best version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E?
What trim level of the Mustang Mach-E is best for you and your needs is entirely up to you at the end of the day, but we can provide a bit of insight as to which version of the electric crossover provides the most value for your hard-earned money.
First, we want to say that the standard range Select trim of the Mustang Mach-E provides the range and performance the average person needs for day-to-day commuting, all priced below $40,000.
However, if you’re looking to maximize value given what you’re paying, consider either battery package on the CA Route 1 Edition. The Premium version of the Mach-E is a huge jump in performance compared to the select trim, especially if you splurge for the extended battery.
However, for pretty much the same price as the RWD Premium with extended battery, you can get the all-wheel drive version of the CA Route 1 Mach-E which automatically comes with the larger battery and a bunch of unique design features. Not to mention you’ll be getting more horsepower, torque, acceleration, and range.
The range increase is only about 11 miles, but price-wise, the CA Route 1 offers more value. We’d say if you’re going to go for a trim higher than the Mach-E select, skip Premium and go straight to CA Route 1.
What makes Ford's first all-electric crossover special?
While it remains a newer EV on the market, the Ford Mustang Mach-E is already in its second model year and will soon be entering its third. For those 2022 models currently out there, there are some unique features consumers can utilize.
First and foremost, the 2022 Mach-E models are the first to come fully equipped with Ford’s BLUECruise technology which offers drivers the ability of hands-free driving on certain roads.
These designated BlueCruise sections currently exist on over 130,000 miles of North American roads.
This technology takes adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist to another level, allowing you to safely take your hands off the steering wheel.
Note that you are still monitored by a driver-facing camera to make sure you’re keeping your eyes on the road.
