Interior & comfort Rating

4.0 out of 5

Pros

  • Up to 379 miles on a charge
  • Good to drive
  • Desirable and functional interior

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Odd steering feel
  • Some cheap trim

Considering top versions of the Mach-E cost around £57,000, it's important the interior can justify such a high price, and in most respects it works. Ignore the familiar Ford switches and indicator stalks, and there's a pleasant selection of materials, including fabric and carbon-style trim for the dashboard. Combined with the new vast displays, it's ahead of anything else offered in Ford's line-up.

Ford Mustang Mach-E dashboard

It's easy to think Ford has copied Tesla by fitting a gigantic 15.5-inch portrait screen in the middle of the Mach-E, but dig deeper and there's plenty to set the Ford apart. The American brand has even drawn on its Mustang heritage and included the twin humps in the dashboard first seen in the 1960's original. Unlike the Model 3 and Model Y, the central screen is complemented by a 10.2-inch driver's display behind the steering wheel, with sharp graphics that pops up sat-nav instructions when relevant, and pertinent info at other times. 

This means the driver doesn't always need to look towards the central screen, like in a Tesla, and should be fairly straightforward for most drivers to get used to. The main screen gets Ford's latest SYNC 4 software, and features a rotary dial to make it easier to make adjustments on the move. This is quite striking, because not only does it appear to float above the display, it also includes part of the screen inside it, and it's pleasantly satisfying to use.

Equipment

Standard equipment is generous, including features like adaptive cruise control, automatic headlights, all-round parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, heated seats, a heated steering wheel and a rear-view camera. It's possible to display wireless Apple CarPlay or Android Auto on the central screen and there's wireless smartphone charging. 

Extended Range models also get some extra kit, including a 360-degree camera system, powered hands-free tailgate, B&O stereo system, panoramic roof and automatic parking. There's also a First Edition model, available in Grabber Blue, Carbonised Grey or Rapid Red paint finishes.

Options

The options list is minimal at launch, but it's possible to upgrade from the standard Absolute Black body colour. This is pricey, however, costing between £800 and £1,200 depending on which colour hue is chosen.
