Ford Mustang Mach-E Interior Layout & Technology

What’s New for 2022?

Entering its second model year, the 2022 Mustang Mach-E, which won our inaugural EV of the Year award, enjoys slightly more useable battery capacity that should increase its real-world range. The California 1 is now offered with all-wheel drive and comes standard with a heated steering wheel and heated front seats. Likewise, the GT model now comes standard with a black-painted roof. As with the Mustang pony car, the Mach-E is now available as an all-white special edition called–go figure–the Ice White Edition. This new appearance package is only offered on the Premium trim level and includes tri-coat Star White metallic paint and Oxford White details such as the 19-inch wheels and exterior badges. The bright Grabber Blue and Cyber Orange paint colors are also now available on models other than just the GT.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2022 Mustang Mach-E is available with a wide array of driver-assistance technology. For more information about the Mach-E’s crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

  • Available forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  • Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
  • Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist

Is it simple enough to use?

It takes some getting used to – there’s a heck of a lot of menus to scroll your way through – and the whole touch, pinch and swipe, while cool, isn’t easy on the move. Just as well it accepts over the air updates for future improvements. 

There’s a row of frequently used apps (nav, media, phone, settings etc) across the bottom, and pressing one of them makes it fill the top half of the screen. This means Apple CarPlay or Android Auto don’t take over the whole screen, so you could have Waze and the in-car nav working simultaneously. The nav, like most other electric cars, will direct you to charging stations if needed en route (though unlike Tesla it can’t tell you if they’re working or unoccupied) but the mapping is fairly simple.

2022 Ford Mustang Mach-E Cargo Space

The 2022 Mustang Mach-E comes with plenty of space

The 2022 Mustang Mach-E comes with plenty of space for both your passengers and any cargo you might need to carry. The cargo spaces inside the Mustang Mach-E are:

  • Behind the first row: 59.7 cubic feet
  • Behind the second row: 29.7 cubic feet
  • Front trunk (frunk): 4.7 cubic feet

In addition to all the storage space we covered above, the Mustang Mach-E has several other small storage spots. Inside the vehicle is an open media bin, overhead console with sunglasses storage, and storage bins in both front doors.

2022 Mach-E interior features

If you want the most luxurious Ford Mustang Mach-E interior for your commute, consider upgrading beyond the base Select model. The Mach-E Premium offers heated seats and a heated steering wheel, excellent noise protection in the cabin, and a 10-speaker sound system. The swanky California Route 1 Mach-E comes with heated front captain’s chairs and a panoramic fixed-glass roof.

Thanks to its eye-popping performance and gorgeous interior, the Mustang Mach-E GT may be the ultimate commuter car. You can choose between the classic GT interior or the GT Performance cabin design. Both offer smooth ActiveX™, a high-end faux leather, with Miko® inserts for support. Attractive contrast stitching and piping round out the look, while a massive 15.5-inch touchscreen seamlessly delivers all the information you need.

Infotainment, apps sat nav

The Mustang Mach-E gets the latest evolution of Ford's 'SYNC' in-car infotainment system. It boasts sharp graphics and a highly configurable 'home' screen, and is generally pretty easy to use. There's also wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, should you prefer to use your own phone apps for music and navigation. Our one gripe is that the big 15.5-inch screen could do with being angled towards the driver, as it can be tricky to see and operate some functions at the bottom of the screen at times.
