Ford Mustang Mach-E SUV - Practicality & boot space

A rugged 'frunk', large boot and plentiful interior space make the electric Ford a solid family pick

Ford has capitalised on the Mach-E being a clean-sheet electric car, without the need for a transmission tunnel or a large combustion engine under the bonnet. This has allowed designers to create more space inside for passengers and luggage, while still keeping the car's stylish looks.

Ford Mustang Mach-E interior space & storage

There's a flat floor inside, improving space for backseat passengers, and even with a panoramic glass roof fitted it's possible for six-footers to get comfortable in the rear. There are also plenty of oddment trays and side-by-side cupholders for those in the front seat, along with neatly thought out spots for your smartphone. The lack of a traditional gear lever or handbrake has freed up space for a double-decker tray beneath the dashboard, with USB charging ports and a grippy surface.

Boot space

The boot is also a reasonable 402 litres to the parcel shelf (519 litres to the roof), not including the space beneath the floor where the charging cables are stored. There's also an 81-litre storage space, or 'frunk', under the bonnet, which is plastic-lined and has a drain should you want to hose it out. Remove the storage divider and this increases to 100 litres. Yes, if you're a hiker or like water sports, this is the perfect place for your muddy boots or wetsuit on the drive home. It also has an organiser, to stop fragile shopping from being smashed up during enthusiastic cornering.  

The boot in the Volkswagen ID.4 measures 543 litres, but it has no frunk, while the BMW iX3 has a 510-litre boot.

Towing

Ford's accessories list includes a detachable tow bar (costing around £500), but we only expect the Mach-E to be able to pull a trailer weighing up to 750kgs, so it's unlikely to be suitable for a caravan or horsebox. The Ford Kuga PHEV can tow up to 1,200kg, and this increases to 2,100kg for the range-topping diesel.
