The Mustang Mach-E is the first electric vehicle that Ford has built from the ground up. It debuted ahead of the 2019 L.A. Auto Show and will go on sale in late 2020 and early 2021. Here's a run-down of its many variants.

The base Mach-E will be called the Select. Available in early 2021, this base model will start at $43,895 (all prices exclude $1,100 destination and any state or federal tax incentives).
The Select will come with rear-wheel-drive and 230 miles of range, or AWD and 210 miles of range.
Both versions will have 255 horsepower. The RWD version will have 306 pound-feet of torque and the AWD model will have 417 pound-feet.
This is the only Mach-E variant that will not allow for 150kW DC fast-charging.
The second-tier trim will be the Premium, which will be available in late 2020 and it will start at $50,600. The Premium will come in standard range or extended range, and RWD or AWD.
The Standard range model will have 230 miles of range in RWD guise; 210 miles in AWD.
The Extended range version will have 300 miles of range with RWD, 270 miles with AWD.
Like the base Select model, Standard-range Premium models will have 255 horsepower, extended-range RWD will have 282 horsepower and extended-range AWD will have 332 horsepower.
A California Route 1 model starts at $52,400 and goes on sale in early 2021. This trim level is basically the Premium Extended Range RWD with some additional options so its powertrain figures are the same: a 300-mile-range and 282 horsepower.
A limited run of First Edition models will be among the first Mach-Es available (hence the name) and it starts at $59,900. Available in late 2020, it has the same powertrain as the Premium Extended Range AWD: that’s 270 miles of range and 332 horsepower. It also comes with some trim upgrades.
The GT is the performance iteration of the Mach-E lineup. Starting at $60,500, buyers get AWD, 235 miles of range and a robust 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. Ford says this will allow the Mach E to 0-60 runs in the mid-three-second range.
The GT also includes 20-inch forged wheels, Brembo brakes, an adaptive Magnaride suspension, and exterior trim upgrades.

All Mach-E models will come standard with a new 15.5-inch touchscreen (ala Tesla) that will run Ford’s Next-Generation Sync operating system and with available over-the-air updates (also ala Tesla).
The Mach-E -- like many EVs that don’t have an engine up front -- has a front trunk (or ‘frunk). It will hold 4.8 cubic feet of stuff, which is enough space for a cooler or a suitcase. Ford also included a drain plug at the bottom of the frunk, a feature the automaker said consumers kept recommending during their research.
The Mach-E will seat five adults with room for their cargo in the back. Unlike the upcoming Tesla Model Y, there’s no optional third-row seat.
