We don't know a lot about the Mach E's specs but according to Car and Driver, Ford is aiming for a 300 mile range, which they predict would require a 100.0-kWh battery, like in the Tesla Model S Long Range.

For me that would be plenty of range for my commute, but is that enough for everyone else?

Now that all its fuel-efficient passenger cars are exiting stage left, Ford needs to prove that it is still committed to greenery. And it's crucial that this new EV be desirable, hence the grafted-on Mustang heritage.

Ford has a plan to eventually migrate all global products onto five vehicle architectures. This crossover will use one of these: a dedicated EV platform designed from the outset to accommodate a battery pack. So far, all Ford has promised is a driving range of 300 miles on a charge, which will likely mean a 100.0-kWh battery, the size that's in a Tesla Model S Long Range. Two electric motors, one up front and one in the rear, should be on hand to provide all-wheel drive.

This new model will aim at currently available EVs such as the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Hyundai Kona Electric, and Kia Niro EV, along with the upcoming Tesla Model Y crossover scheduled to go on sale next year.
