There had been a bit of chatter for years that Ford was working on an electric car that would match performance with style. A car that would arrest the comfort level at Tesla while bringing new technology to the forefront. The rumors were answered this week with the new All-Electric Mustang Mach-E an impressive entry point to electric driving for steadfast Ford consumers and performance enthusiasts alike. To the thrill of Ford dealers worldwide the company took the wraps of the spirited, sturdy and sleek, 2021 All-Electric Mustang Mach-E.
With a new fresh way of thinking Ford, for the first time in 55 years, is expanding the Mustang family with the Mach-E, an all-new, all-electric SUV. Since it’s introduction the original Mustang quickly came to represent the best of the American design and performance. Ford wanted to bring back that kind of thinking that gave us the Mustang in 1964.
“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.”
We were told that this new Mustang was developed in a century-old brick building a few blocks away from Henry Ford’s first factory in Detroit and the development process concentrated entirely on customer needs and desires. The result is a sleek, beautiful SUV that delivers spirited ride and handling, with state-of-the-art connected vehicle technology that makes Mach-E even better over time.
“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.
When it arrives in late 2020, 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 EPA-estimated range of at least 300 miles.
