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.
