Top 10 Green Cars 2021 - Part 2

Ford Mustang Mach-E

“Ford

Putting a Mustang name on a car means a lot for Ford, and those that have developed the all-electric Mustang Mach-E are confident the EV can live up to expectations. Featuring a range of more than 350 miles in the longest-range version, there are rear- or all-wheel drive versions, and two different battery packs to chose from.

Of course, to add credit to the Mustang name there is a performance version too, but even the base-spec models will be quick thanks to a well thought out electric powertrain. Charging can take place at up to 150 kW for ultra-rapid performance, and the Ford Mustang Mach-E is set to become a best-seller very quickly.

VW ID.4

“VW

Volkswagen launched its electric car push with the ID.3 hatchback, and the pure-electric Golf-sized model has been well received, with plenty of different versions available. The next model to wear the ID. badge could easily go on to prove more popular than the conventional hatchback, as the ID.4 family-sized SUV is one of a number of EVs due out this year that looks set to prioritise the family electric car.

As with the ID.3, there will be options in terms battery, charging, and motor combinations, and towing will be possible as well. A range of more than 300 miles is available with the largest battery packs, and ultra-rapid charging means long-distance trips will be simple. As the Tiguan has become VW’s most popular model ahead of the Golf, it would be on no surprise to find that the ID.4 outsells the ID.3 as SUVs prove more popular than hatchbacks.
