Mustang Mach-E Named Car and Driver's 2021 EV of the Year  

Electric vehicles are just now reaching their full potential in the United States, with millions of people shifting to the convenience of electric-powered models like the Ford Mustang Mach-E. There's a new reason for Mach-E owners to flash a proud smile. Car and Driver just named the Ford Mustang Mach EV its first EV of the Year winner. That's no small feat when you're going up against the likes of the Tesla Model 3 Performance, Audi e-tron, and Kia Niro (among others).

A Triumph for Ford

Car and Driver are notoriously stringent in their model tests. When they name a vehicle anything of the year, they really back it up with testing. In order to nab the 2021 EV of the Year Award, the Mustang Mach-E had to demonstrate:

  • Exceptional driver engagement
  • Fun driving experiences
  • Superiority over competitors
  • Offer massive practicality or value

That's a long list of capability and driver offerings. How did Car and Driver test everything out? Multiple tests pushed each model to the limits, but the most impressive one was the 1,000-mile road trip that each tester had to complete before reporting their findings. Imagine getting to spend that many miles with a Mustang Mach-E.

The clear winner was the Mustang Mach-E. Car and Driver editor-in-chief Sharon Carty explained, "We felt that if a carmaker was looking to convert people from EV skeptics to EV evangelists, there's not a better vehicle out there than the Mustang Mach-E." That's a strong statement from one of the world's pickiest publications. They're well-known for expecting every model to be a superman.
