- Mustang Mach-E EV priced from $79,990
- Up to 600km driving range, LFP or Li-ion batteries
- Rivals Tesla Model Y, Kia EV6
Ford's first electric SUV in Australia has been priced from $79,900 to $107,665 before on-road costs.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV will finally arrive in Australia late this year to directly compete against the popular Tesla Model Y.
It will be the second pure-electric vehicle in Ford’s Australian line-up following the E-Transit large commercial van – using the iconic pony muscle car badge, although it doesn't share any parts with the Mustang coupe and convertible besides the logo.
The Mach-E also represents the spiritual successor to the petrol and plug-in hybrid powered Escape family SUV, which will be retired at the end of the year.
Priced from $79,990 to $107,665 before on-road costs, the Mustang Mach-E EV provides between 470km to 600km of claimed WLTP driving range depending on the variant.
UPDATE 27/7/23: Ford Australia cuts Mach-E Premium and GT variants by $1,325.
Mustang Mach-E Specs: Range, Charging and Size
The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric car is available in three variants. The base Select model comes with a new longer lifespan lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) cathode battery chemistry, while the Premium and GT boast a larger battery based on lithium-ion.
The mid-spec rear-wheel-driven Mach-E Premium features the longest claimed WLTP driving range, whereas the flagship GT gets powerful dual electric motors for all-wheel drive traction.View our EV database

How does the Mustang Mach-E compare to other EVs?
Mach-E Select Spec Comparison
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Select rear-wheel drive (RWD) compares well on paper with the Tesla Model Y RWD across charging, acceleration and claimed range – except for energy efficiency, boot space and price.
Mach-E Premium Spec Comparison
The mid-spec Mustang Mach-E Premium has slower 0-100km/h acceleration than its key electric SUV rivals, but benefits from a larger battery providing long range.
Mach-E GT Spec Comparison
The Mustang Mach-E GT performance hero is more expensive than the Tesla Model Y Performance and Kia EV6 GT, with a likely slower 0-100km/h acceleration time (due to a one-foot rollout subtracted in the quoted figures), but sits in the middle for claimed range.
