Ford Mustang Mach-E in NH

    

   
       

Overview

       

Crossovers have absolutely soared in popularity in the United States within the past few years, so it makes sense that Ford has decided to focus on a new vehicle in this class. Now the automaker is ready to officially reveal the Mustang Mach-E, an electric utility vehicle inspired by the famed muscle car. We can expect to see clear evidence of that inspiration, especially at the rear of a vehicle, where spy photos showed shades of the iconic Pony Car's distinctive taillights. This decidedly secret vehicle has a larger body than a Mustang coupe, with utility-vehicle height. Let's run through all of the confirmed details - as well as some of the rumors - about this exciting and upcoming melding of muscle car and SUV.

Meet the Mustang Mach-E

   

During the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, a rumor began saying that this attention-getting vehicle would be called the Mach 1. But that was not well-received by most of the Mustang fan base. The Mach 1 is, of course, a high-performance Mustang variant that was produced from 1969 to 1978 and again in 2003 and 2004, and serious fans of the car hold that name sacred. So, Ford compromised on the name and filed a trademark for "Mach-E" - with E evidently standing for electric. The Mach-E name gives a nod to the revered Mach 1 performance car, while also signaling that it's a fully modern and progressive vehicle.

       
       

Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy

   

The Ford Motor Company has stated that this crossover will be all electric, but the specific EV technology and specs are still unclear. The Mach-E will likely have a lithium-ion battery, but again, the automaker hasn't confirmed this. According to information released by Ford, the vehicle is expected to have a range of about 370 miles. But since official stats on mileage and range can't be determined by the EPA until a vehicle is available to them for testing, that number is totally up in the air. There have also been whispers that Ford may offer various battery configurations and drivetrains, giving consumers a range of choices.

   
   

Possible Release Date and Price

   

As promised at the end of August, Ford will show the first official look of this highly anticipated crossover EV in November. This event will be broadcast live on Ford's official website on November 17 at 9 p.m. EST. Immediately following the event, interested parties will be able to reserve their chance to buy a Mach-E by making a deposit of $500 through the Ford website.

   

According to Car and Driver and other sources, the Mach-E will be produced in the Cuautitlan, Mexico, Ford manufacturing facility - the same plant where the Ford Fiesta was produced before being discontinued in May 2019. The strongest speculation is that it won't be available until 2021, although some optimists are hoping for a 2020 release. It's also expected that the Mach-E will have a base MSRP around $40,000.
