Car and Driver Names Mach-E EV of the Year
July 8, 2021—Car and Driver announced the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossover as its 2021 EV of the Year.
The publication praises the electric crossover as the perfect vehicle to "convert people from EV skeptics to EV evangelists," citing the vehicle's 346 horsepower battery and 4.9-second 0-to-60 time as a feature that keeps the battery-powered vehicle fun to drive. The article also mentions its range and charging speed as key factors in waving off common criticisms of EVs, "striking a balance between practical and visceral."
"Best of all, the Mach-E is fun," the publication says. "It moves us past the argument that we should drive EVs because they're better for the environment and proposes a simpler, more fundamental truth: EVs can be as rewarding to drive as their gas counterparts."
The publication also declares the Mach-E as the "perfect vehicle to rewrite preconceptions that were formed" when EVs were an underpowered, overpriced niche market.
