Headline performer is the Mach-E GT with the aforementioned 465PS backed up by an impressive 830Nm of torque, with all-wheel-drive and 0-62mph in less than five seconds. It is thought this will go on sale after less powerful versions arrive, probably from autumn 2020. The more mainstream Mach-E offering is topped by a model with 337PS (332bhp).
The Mach-E that can go the farthest gets rear-drive only and the largest (98.8kWh) battery pack to make 370 miles on a single charge, although it is worth remembering Ford says all its figures are yet to be confirmed. Standard battery is 75.7kWh of lithium-ion cells under the floor. Charging the Mach-E can be done at home (at a rate of around 38 miles per hour’s charge) if you opt for the Ford Wallbox, or via a fast DC charger at a public charging station when you can get 57 miles worth of juice in 10 minutes.
Ford says the all-wheel-drive versions have the handling advantage plus more traction in slippery conditions, while stopping way short of being an off-roader. All, however, have been tuned for a dynamic drive. There are three drive models: Whisper, Engage and Unbridled, the latter presumably intended as a horsey response to Tesla’s “Insane” mode. The modes tune steering, noise and dashboard displays.
