Ford Mustang Mach-E reliability & safety rating

There's no independent crash-test result for the Mustang Mach-E yet, but safety kit is good and we expect reliability to be strong, too

Reliability & safety rating rating

4.0 out of 5

£41,250 - £58,000
Fuel Type:

Electric cars are almost certain to be more dependable than their combustion-engined counterparts due to having much fewer moving parts to potentially go wrong. Real-world reliability data is thin on the ground for a model as recently introduced as the Mustang Mach-E, but we have no reason to expect the worst and it should fare well when it comes to safety, too.

Ford Mustang Mach-E reliability & problems

Ford is hands-down the most popular car brand in the UK (thanks mainly to sales of its smaller Fiesta and Focus models), but that doesn't mean owners are entirely satisfied: the firm could only rank 24th out of 30 in the 2020 edition of the Driver Power owner satisfaction survey.

That obviously didn't take into account views of Mustang Mach-E owners, however, as the model wasn't on sale yet, so we'll have to wait a little longer for a clear and objective picture of this model's reliability, as well as any common issues that owners encounter.


All Mustang Mach-Es come with lane-keeping assistance and lane-departure warning, as well as automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, evasive-steering assistance and pre-collision assistance, with active parking assistance the only extra you get by upgrading from one of the Standard Range to one of the Extended Range models.
