The Ford Mustang Mach-E won the 2021 North American SUV of the Year Award over 43 eligible car models. The Mustang Mach-E is Ford’s first electric vehicle designed, from the beginning, to be fully electric. With two available battery sizes and either rear- or all-wheel drive, Ford says the Mach-E can provide up to 300 miles of driving range. Compared with the base model, the Mach-E Premium has more powerful fast-charging capability, 19-inch wheels, a Band & Olufsen sound system, a panoramic sunroof, and a power liftgate. The majority of the car’s systems are controlled through the screen, which uses Ford’s recent SYNC 4 operating system that can accept wireless updates. Charging is available via an AC home charger or DC fast chargers at up to 150 kW.

The awards are voted on by a jury of 50 automotive journalists from publications and shows such as MotorWeek, CNet, and Car and Driver who make their selections from the all-new and substantially redesigned vehicles for the new model year. The Mach-E beat out the Genesis GV80, a large luxury SUV produced by Hyundai, and the Land Rover Defender. The Mach-E is priced similarly to the Model Y and also offers similar performance. Ford also won the Truck of the Year Award for the new F-150. The redesigned Hyundai Elantra won the Car of the Year award.
