Here, we provided external force field (electric), which caused our change in kinetic energy. Remember: The total energy of a system remains conserved if: $$\sum F_{\text{external}}=0$$ But here as mentioned in question: $$\vec F_{\text{external}}=m_e\vec E$$ So total energy of our electron system changes. Change in velocity or kinetic energy can be ...
