Ford’s Mustang Mach-E is one of the best-selling electric vehicles, but the blue oval brand isn’t resting on its laurels. The 2024 model brings significant upgrades to range and charging performance – all with a reduced starting MSRP.

Great EV Crossover Gets Better and More Affordable

We’re big fans of the Ford Mustang Mach-E here at GreenCars. Launched in 2021, the Mach-E was, along with the Hyundai Ioniq 5, one of the first electric crossovers from a mainstream brand at a relatively mainstream price point. It combined impressive electric performance, a distinctive and attractive design, versatile and high-tech interior, and decent range into a package that felt “just right” for American families ready to make the switch to an electric vehicle. Indeed, the only thing we really wished for back then was a lower starting MSRP.

Well, for the 2024 model year, Ford has answered our wishes – and given us a whole lot more. The Mustang Mach-E, which used to start in the mid-forties, with most models reaching over $50,000, now carries a starting MSRP of under $40,000, with some of the most attractive models listing for well under $50,000. On top of that, the 2024 Mustang Mach-E comes with numerous enhancements that improve its performance, range, and functionality.

Mustang Mach-E: Faster Charging and Access to Tesla Superchargers

One of the biggest upgrades to the Mustang Mach-E, outside of its pricing, is improved charging speed. Ford claims that 2024 models charge almost 20 percent faster on a DC fast charger than before, which should make road-tripping easier. Mach-Es fitted with the 70-kWh standard-range battery now charge from 10 to 80 percent in just over 32 minutes – almost six minutes faster than before – while the 91-kWh long-range battery now charges almost 9 minutes faster than before, going from 10 to 80 percent in just over 36 minutes.

The other big news in terms of charging is that Ford electric vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E can now charge on the Tesla Supercharger network, which nearly doubles the available charging options available. With over 13,000 high-speed chargers nationwide, almost half of the high-speed chargers in the U.S. are Superchargers, and Ford was the first to ink a deal with Tesla to provide access to their network. Ford is also now shipping free plug adapters that make it easy for Mach-E and F-150 Lightning customers to plug into Tesla chargers.

Mustang Mach-E Range Boost

There’s big news on the range front as well. Standard-battery, rear-wheel drive models now have an EPA-estimated range of 250 miles – 20 more than 2023. Extended-range all-wheel drive versions have also received a 20-mile bump to 320 miles, up from 300, while the all-wheel drive Mustang Mach-E GT has 10 more miles of range, for a total of 280, according to EPA estimates.

Mustang Mach-E pricing has also gotten a lot more attractive for 2024. Early in the year, Ford reduced prices of in-stock 2023 Mach-E models by thousands to help them move off dealer lots; for 2024, more attractive pricing comes in the form of lower starting MSRPs.

Ford Mustang Mach-E Pricing and Trim Levels

The entry-level Mustang Mach-E Select isn’t really entry-level at all. It still includes a full suite of driver assists, a large 15.5-inch central touchscreen infotainment system, LED lights, and everything your family could want in a daily hauler. You can choose from a 70-kWh standard battery, or a 91-kWh long-range battery, and between rear- and all-wheel drive. Starting MSRPs for the Mach-E select models are:

  • $39,995: Standard-range battery, rear-wheel drive
  • $43,495: Standard-range battery, all-wheel drive
  • $46,995: Extended-range battery, all-wheel drive

One step up from the Select is the Mustang Mach-E Premium, which is available in the greatest number of powertrain variations. You get larger wheels and tires, upgraded interior materials, painted brake calipers, and more. Starting MSRPs are:

  • $43,995: Standard-range battery, rear-wheel drive
  • $46,995: Standard-range battery, all-wheel drive
  • $46,995: Extended-range battery, rear-wheel drive
  • $49,995: Extended-range battery, all-wheel drive

Available only with all-wheel drive, the Mustang Mach-E GT combines the extended-range battery with more powerful electric motors to deliver an impressive 3.6-second 0-60 mph time, but that extra power, and larger 20-inch wheels and tires reduce its range somewhat. The starting MSRP of the Mach-E GT is $53,995, and customers can order an additional performance upgrade package for $995, which adds an additional 100 lb-ft of torque, reducing the 0-60 time to 3.3 seconds.

All-New Mach-E Rally Model

Sitting at the top of the range is the all-new Mustang Mach-E Rally, with a starting MSRP of $59,995. The least efficient of the Mach-E models is arguably also the most fun. While it squeezes just 265 miles of EPA-estimated range from its long-range battery, it has big power, as well as a suspension tuned for off-road use, making this a 4x4 that can tear down forest trails while producing zero emissions. In addition to its distinctive knobby tires, the Mach-E Rally also has white disc-style wheels, racing stripes, a big spoiler, and a raised ride height.

The Mustang Mach-E was the third-best selling electric vehicle in the U.S. in 2023. Owners love its combination of style, space, speed, and range – and the 2024 models, which are improved in every aspect and even more affordable, will only help it find even more buyers.
