The time has come for an electric Mustang. Not to replace the Mustang coupe that we all love, the world’s most popular sports coupe. But rather to join a family of Mustangs and give car lovers a new way to experience the thrill and freedom of driving a Mustang.
For the first time in 55 years, Ford is expanding the Mustang line-up with the all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV joining the sports coupe, convertible and special editions, featuring an all-new infotainment system and connected vehicle technology.
With the first-all electric member of the Mustang family, Ford harnessed the power of electrification to craft a vehicle that’s as exciting to drive as its predecessors while also delivering a new, uniquely tailored experience. There will also be a Mach-E targeting 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, making it faster off the line than a Porsche Macaw Turbo 3 and a GT Performance Edition, targeting 60 miles per hour in the mid-3s-second range comparable to a Porsche 911 GTS with an estimated 459 horsepower and 612 ft.-lbs of torque.
Making its debut in the Mach-E is the next-generation SYNC communications and entertainment system. It’s a sleek and modern interface that uses machine learning to quickly learn drivers’ preferences. It gets even better over time, thanks to advanced over-the-air updates. Next-generation SYNCs 15.5-inch screen and adaptive dash card interact ditches complicated menus, making it easier to assess features with touch, swipe and pinch controls that every smartphone users will be comfortable with.
Mustang Mach-E will be available with standard and extended range battery options with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive powered by permanent magnet motors. Equipped with an extended range battery and rear-wheel drive, Mach-E has a targeted estimated range of 500 kilometres. And the connected navigation system will also identify up-to-date charging locations during trips and prompt owners to charge at the most convenient points on each drive, all to help ensure they don’t have to be anxious about how much range they have.
Unique Driving Experience
Mustang Mach-E delivers three unique drive experiences: Whisper, Engage and Unbridled. Each offers finely tuned driving dynamics packaged with a unique sensory experience. Features include custom-designed vehicle responsiveness such as sportier steering controls, ambient lighting, sounds tuned for an authentic all-electric experience, and dynamic cluster animations that are tied to driving behaviour. A new all-wheel drive system (eAWD) will be available that can apply torque independently to the front and rear axles to deliver impressive acceleration and improved handling over the rear-wheel drive model.
Mustang Inside and Out
The Mach-E is instantly recognizable as a Mustang, thanks to signature elements such as its long, powerful hood, rear-haunch design, aggressive headlights and trademark tri-bar tail lamps. Clever design and engineering delivers surprising rear seat roominess and ample cargo space.
More Space for Your Adventures
Along with its all-new propulsion system, the Mach-E holds another surprise under its hood: a drainable front trunk storage unit. Providing 4.8 cubic feet of storage pace, the front trunk is large enough to comfortably store the equivalent of a carry-on luggage bag and several smaller bags. And because it’s drainable, you can easily pack it full of ice and keep your favourite beverages cold. Now that’s perfect for a pre-game tailgate or trip to the beach.
Customers can now visit the Mustang Mach-E reservation site to make a $500 reservation deposit. The 2021 Mustang Mach-E begins arriving at EV Certified Ford dealers such as Sherwood Ford in late 2020. A limited First Edition will be available in extended-range all-wheel drive, with red painted brake calipers, metallic pedal covers, contrasting seat stitching and a scuff plate marked First Edition. Those looking for the thrill of the Mach-E GT can make reservations now for deliveries starting in spring 2021.
