Mustang Mach-E revealed
In a bid to appeal to premium buyers, the Mustang Mach-E doesn't feature any Ford badges, with the brand instead choosing to play on the heritage of its pony car. It comes as Ford sets out plans to introduce 14 electrified vehicles across Europe by the end of 2020.
Buyers will be able to choose from standard and extended-range versions, the former with a 75.7kWh lithium-ion battery and the latter with a 98.8kWh battery pack. In rear-wheel-drive guise, these will be able to cover 280 or 370 miles respectively.
All-wheel-drive versions of both will also be sold, providing more confidence in slippery conditions, as well as improved acceleration times.
There's also going to be a performance model badged the Mustang Mach-E GT, with an estimated 465PS and 830Nm of torque. This will be able to cover 0-62mph in less than five seconds.
Using a connected Wallbox provided by Ford, the Mustang Mach-E can be charged at a rate of 38 miles per hour. With peak charging power of 150kW, a high-powered public charger will be able to charge the standard-range Mach-E from 10 to 80 per cent in approximately 38 minutes.
Inside, the next-generation of Ford's SYNC infotainment system makes its debut. This portrait 15.5-inch touchscreen system is similar to that used in a Tesla, with pinch-and-swipe controls and replacing conventional buttons for many car of the car's functions. There's also a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster.
Options will include a premium B&O sound system with speakers floating above the air vents like a sound bar. There's also a floating, flip-up armrest which doubles as a place to stores bags, while a panoramic sunroof uses infrared protection to help the interior stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
A limited First Edition model will be sold in extended-range, all-wheel-drive spec, featuring Grabber Blue paint, a full-length panoramic sunroof, contrasting seat stitching and First Edition scuff plates.
Ford says there'll be enough space to seats five adults comfortably, while the boot offers 402 litres of luggage space. This increases to 1420 litres with the rear seats dropped, while there's also 100 litres of space in a drainable compartment in the front.
Prices and UK specifications for the Mustang Mach-E are yet to be confirmed, but it's expected to start in the region of £40,000 when it goes on sale early in 2020. The high-spec First Edition model will be closer to £60,000.
