2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Much Heavier Than Real Mustang, Reaches 4,890 Lbs

Ford recently unveiled the 2021 Mustang Mach-E in European guise over in the UK and published details regarding the EV’s curb weight. Let’s just say it’s a rather heavy thing.

During the British event, Autocar discovered that the Mustang Mach-E’s curb weight ranges from 1,993 kg (4,394 lbs) to more than 2,218 kg (4,890 lbs), depending on specification. Weight details about specific variants are not available although it’s reasonable to assume the dual-motor models will be among the heftiest.

Curb weights for the regular ICE-powered Ford Mustang range between roughly 3,520 lbs and 3,800 lbs (1,600 kg to 1,720 kg), making the pony car significantly lighter than the Mach-E.

Of course, it is no surprise that the all-electric crossover is quite portly as most EVs are. It’s worth keeping in mind that much of the Mach-E’s weight is placed low thanks to the floor-mounted battery pack so the heft won’t have as big an impact on handling as it would if a normal Mustang were loaded with 1,000 lbs of bricks throughout its interior and trunk.

European customers will initially be able to purchase the Mustang Mach-E with three power outputs and two battery pack sizes. Sitting at the base of the range will be a model with a 75 kWh battery and a single 255 HP (259 PS) electric motor driving the rear wheels.

One step up in the range brings with it a 98.8 kWh battery and a 286 HP (290 PS), rear-mounted electric motor. Two all-wheel drive, twin-motor models will be offered, the first of which has a 75 kWh battery and 286 HP (290 PS) while the range-topper uses a 98.8 kWh battery and delivers 332 HP (337 PS). The 459 HP (465 PS) Mach-E GT model will arrive at a later date.
