Is the Ford Mustang Mach-E worth waiting for?

Well, it's certainly looking promising. You can go to Ford's website and place a pre-order right now. There's a First Edition model featuring extended-range and all-wheel drive, finished in Grabber Blue Metallic paint. As well as the full-length panorama roof, it's got contrasting interior stitching and First Edition door scuff plates.

Prices start at £40,270 for the Mach-E, rising to £58,000 for the extended-range, all-wheel drive First Edition. and pre-orders are expected to deliver in 2020. The high-performance Ford Mustang Mach-E GT is expected to arrive in 2021.

This isn't Ford's first purpose-made production electric car - the Norwegian-built TH!NK gets that honour - but on first impressions, it's a deeply promising, on-trend and attractive EV that really doesn't need the Mustang name to succeed.
