Test Ford Mustang Mach-E and Polestar 2 – where big electric SUVs are small

You’d expect to find large SUVs like the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Polestar 2 inside a space paradise. That’s a bit disappointing. In addition, the Mustang Mach-E disappoints in yet another SUV feature.

With its black painted roof, the Ford Mustang Mach-E makes every effort to hide its size from the eye. But the numbers indicate otherwise. He is 4.71 meters long and 1.88 meters wide. And then that weight: it weighs no less than 2291 kilos. Anyone who thinks that you see those specifications in the interior will be disappointed.

In the front you have a lot of space thanks to the minimalist dashboard and the low center tunnel. In the back you are much tighter than expected due to the steeply sloping roofline. The Mustang Mach-E has a trunk with a capacity of 402 liters, and that is also disappointing. But we must add that you can store another 100 liters of extra luggage in the frunk in the front.

What can the Ford Mustang Mach-E pull?

SUVs are very popular among caravan owners. They are spacious, stand nice and high on the wheels and often have a serious draw weight. The latter is not the case with the Ford Mustang Mach-E. A braked trailer may not be heavier than 750 kilos. Just adequate for one Alpenkreuzerbut the Hobby Excellent will really have to be on Marktplaats after many comfortable camping holidays.

The Polestar 2 looks like a coupe inside

The Polestar 2 built in China is also quite high on its wheels. With its black wheel arches, it tries very hard to look like an SUV. In reality, however, it’s just a conventional hatchback. You notice that when you have switched from the Ford. The roof of the Polestar 2 is a lot lower. With its cramped head and legroom in the rear, the Polestar even seems to want to be a sporty coupe.

Trunk space and towing weight Polestar 2

With the rear seat in function, 405 liters of luggage space fits in the trunk at your disposal. This makes it just as unimpressive as the Ford Mustang Mach-E. If you fold the back seat of the Polestar, you can store 1095 liters of stuff. The Polestar also has a frunk, which has a capacity of 41 liters.

Tribute to the caravan weight of the Polestar 2. With 1500 kilos (braked) the Hobby Excellent can go on many more holidays! However, those will probably be journeys with many forced breaks. With a trailer attached, an EV usually only gets half as far as without. Based on the range measured in our test (311 km), the caravan is ready after just under 160 kilometers. With the Ford Mustang Mach-E we came in our test – without Alpenkreuzer – 350 kilometers away.
