Ford Mustang’s Newest Addition Goes Electric

In 1964, Ford released what would become an American icon: the Ford Mustang. This popular vehicle gained notoriety and embodied the American spirit over the years: freedom, progress, a need for speed, and an untamed spirit that thirsted for adventure. Now 55 years later, Ford is taking these American ideals and adapting them to the way of the future and American’s growing needs with the all-electric SUV Mustang Mach-E.

“At the first-ever Detroit auto show, Henry Ford said he was working on something that would strike like forked lightning,” said Bill Ford, executive chairman, Ford Motor Company. “That was the Model T. Today, the Ford Motor Company is proud to unveil a car that strikes like forked lightning all over again. The all-new, all-electric Mustang Mach-E. It’s fast. It’s fun. It’s freedom. For a new generation of Mustang owners.”

The Mustang nameplate implies power and speed and the Mustang Mach-E does not fall short. The Mach-E will be available in rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options in addition to offering a standard battery and an extended-range battery. In addition to these options, the Mach-E will also be released in two performance versions as well. The all-wheel drive paired with the extended-range battery will produce 332 horsepower and 417 lb.-ft. of torque, and is the first all-wheel drive system on a production vehicle to be tuned by the Ford Performance team. For those looking for something with a little more power and speed, the Mach-E GT and the Mach-E GT Performance Edition will get you there. Both are projected to reach 459 horsepower and 612 lb.-ft. of torque. The Mach-E GT will reach 0-60mph in less than 4 seconds, and  the GT Performance Edition will reach 0-60mph in the mid three second range, competing with the Porsche 911 GTS.

“The Mustang Mach-E wholeheartedly rejects the notion that electric vehicles are only good at reducing gas consumption,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s chief product development and purchasing officer. “People want a car that’s thrilling to drive, that looks gorgeous and that can easily adapt to their lifestyle – and the Mustang Mach-E delivers all of this in unmatched style.”

The Mustang Mach-E offers a lot more than just speed and performance. Ford understands everyone has growing families and a need to travel with cargo. With seating for five adults and a max cargo space of 59.6 cubic feet, Ford remembered everything. Ford customers will also find a little surprise under the front hood of the car with a drainable front-trunk space of 4.8 cubic feet. With its drainable feature, drivers can use it to fill with ice and keep drinks cold on road trips to the beach or even for pre-game tailgating parties.

Offering more than speed and space, the Mustang Mach-E also debuts some of Ford’s latest technological innovations including the next generation of SYNC and Phone As Key technology. The latest generation of SYNC allows drivers to have an easier commute using predictive technology to prompt the driver perform tasks they already do regularly, such as calling home after work. Ford also now offers Phone As Key technology where the driver’s phone can seamlessly communicate with the vehicle through Bluetooth technologies to unlock and start the vehicle.
