Ford Mustang Mach-E review: boot space, seating & practicality
Front and rear luggage areas, plus a pretty roomy cabin, mean the Mustang Mach-E scores well in this area
|Length||Width||Height||Boot volume (seats up/down)|
As it's intended for family-car duties, it's no surprise to find the Mustang Mach-E is fairly spacious and practical inside. It may not quite trump other electric SUVs from Tesla and Skoda in this respect, but some may be happy to sacrifice a bit of outright capacity for those eye-catching exterior lines.
Ford Mustang Mach-E interior space, storage & comfort
A roomy interior is one of the chief benefits of electric cars, as they don't need an intrusive transmission tunnel running down the middle of the cabin that robs occupants of foot space. A flat floor means the Mustang Mach-E has no problem seating three adults in comfort in its rear seats, while headroom is plentiful up front and in the back, too. Practicality hasn't been forgotten about and the car's well thought-out interior is filled with clever storage spaces – particularly in the centre console.
A boot capacity of just 402 litres (519 if measured all the way to the roof) is perhaps a little disappointing for a car of this size, while its sloping rear window means you don't get a perfectly square load area for hauling larger items, either. On the plus side, the lack of a combustion engine allows Ford to offer an additional 81 litres of storage in the nose of the Mustang Mach-E, and it comes with a divider to keep items secure while you’re driving (without the divider, there's 100 litres on offer). There’s also some additional storage under the boot floor, which is an ideal spot to keep the charging cables out of the way when not needed.
Plus, as of September 2022, Extended Range Mustang Mach-Es can also tow larger trailers and caravans up to 1,500kg – increased from 1,000 kg before.
