We know it shouldn't surprise anyone, but Ford creates the best vehicles around, and that is further bolstered by things like making the list in top vehicle of the year awards from reliable publications. In this instance, the Mustang Mach-E has just taken the top spot in Car and Driver's Electric Vehicle of the Year Award. This is the first time that Car and Driver have given out this award, which makes it all the more meaningful that the Mach-E was given the honor of receiving it. Car and Driver tested eleven of the top-rated electric vehicles, and put them through rigorous courses over three weeks to help figure out which one really hit all of the marks. We're here to not only tell you more about the award itself, but why the Mustang Mach-E was able to trounce the competition. Keep reading down below to learn more!

Can you tell me more about the testing process?

While we touched on it briefly before, we're here to tell you just what exactly the Mustang Mach-E went through in order to be honored with this award. The first thing we want to say is that this vehicle, along with the ten other competitors, went on a 1,000-mile road trip to help evaluate it among real-world conditions, instead of just in controlled courses. The testing itself happened over a course of a three-week period, which is a long time to really push these vehicles to their limits. That kind of thoroughness that this test demanded, shows which vehicles can withstand anything that you might throw at them, and the Mustang Mach-E was the one that came out on top.

What kind of criteria is looked at?

Beyond just the testing, certain criteria was specifically focused on to make sure that the judging was consistent throughout. You'll find that the vehicle must deliver outstanding driving engagement, be fun to drive, fulfill its mission better than the competition, and offer indisputable value and practically beyond what the other options can do. What we're saying is, the Mustang Mach-E fulfills its mission in every way imaginable.
