2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick Award

LED reflectors installed on the Select and California Route 1 trims prevent the Mach-E from earning the “plus.”

The Ford Mustang Mach-E has received the Top Safety Pick award in safety tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

The latest all-electric Ford performed “Good” in all crash tests and was very close to getting the Top Safety Pick+ award, but “Marginal” LED reflectors in base versions prevented that (Premium, GT and First Edition have “Good” headlights).

“The Mach-E is available with good-rated LED projector headlights on the Premium, GT and First Edition trims, which qualify for Top Safety Pick. However, the LED reflectors installed on the Select and California Route 1 trims are rated marginal, preventing the new Mustang from earning the “plus.” These headlights provided inadequate illumination on some curves.

The Mach-E also comes with a standard front crash prevention system that earns superior ratings in both the vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian evaluations.”
