Engage FWD is expected to deliver up to 216 miles (348 kilometers) on a full charge. Venture+ FWD is the second most affordable specification available at $47,190 excluding the $1,295 destination freight charge, and it’s also the most capable given its 304-mile (489-kilometer) rating. Stepping up to the Evolve+, Empower+, and Premiere FWD sees the combined estimate drop to 289 miles (465 kilometers). Curious about the dual-motor variants? Well, the EPA estimates have yet to be published as of September 27th.
In terms of performance, the Engage FWD is much obliged to deliver 214 horsepower and 221 pound-foot (300 Nm) of torque. The Evolve+ FWD improves to 238 horsepower and similar torque. As for e-4ORCE AWD, the Japanese automaker quotes 335 ponies and 413 pound-foot (560 Nm) or 389 ponies and 442 pound-foot (600 Nm), depending on the trim level.
Speaking of which, the most expensive configuration available is the Platinum+ e-4ORCE at $60,190. Let that sink in for a minute, then remember that Ford is asking a cool $69,895 for a Mustang Mach-E GT.
