Ford unveils Mustang Mach-E electric sport utility vehicle

GT Performance Edition promises 0-60 mph in less than 4 seconds

Ford has unveiled the Mustang Mach-E, claiming the electric-powered sport utility vehicle “embodies the Mustang spirit — from its sleek silhouette and muscular curves to exhilarating drive experiences that offer unique driving dynamics and sounds.”

The company added that this is the first time in the Mustang’s 55-year history that the lineup has been expanded beyond a sports coupe, convertible and special editions.

Ford claims the GT Performance Edition of the Mach-E will sprint to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds thanks to 459 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. It also claims range “of at least 300 miles with the available extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive.”

It can be driven with confidence, Ford said, thanks to access to more than 12,500 public charging stations in the FordPass network.

“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 of the company that bears his family’s name.“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 Mach-E will be available in late 2020.

There’s a trunk up front that can hold a cooler or other gear, and it has a drain plug as well

    What a way to ruin the MUSTANG name. What are the people at FORD thinking. Is it just about the bottom line? I have been buying and driving MUSTANGS since the beginning and still drive one today. I will never buy one of those things.

    I don’t care how fast that car is, it’s ugly as can be. It’s not cool looking at all. I’d be embarrassed to be seen in that thing.

      How can Ford even think of applying the Mustang name to such an ugly Mercedes / BMW look alike.
      Surely this is a sad joke!!

      Call it Mach 3, but DO NOT associate the legendary Mustang name with this awful thing. Can you imagine Lee Iacocco turning in his grave!!
