Just ahead of the LA Motor Show, Ford finally officially released pictures of the Mach-E all-electric crossover. Ford is the latest automaker to dive into the electric vehicle segment but with an interesting twist. The US-based car maker has created an SUV out of its ‘Mustang’ range, and the electric version will be called the Mustang Mach-E.
Ford has unveiled its first all-electric performance SUV, Mustang Mach-E, which comes promising 482 km range and 341 PS of peak power, informs the American automaker in a release.
The SUV has taken inspiration from the muscle car for the styling and performance as well and it will compete with Tesla Model Y. Ford has also revealed that a GT variant is on the card, which will come churning out around 465 PS of peak power and 830 Nm of torque.
Also, this Mach-E GT will be able to accelerate 0-100 kmph in around 3 seconds, which will make it faster than the Porsche Macan Turbo.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E will carry a base starting price of $43,895 (Rs 31.5 lakhs directly converted) and go up to $60,500 (Rs 43.3 lakh converted) for the extended-range GT version, with deliveries set to start in late 2020.
The Mustang Mach-E will be only available in late 2020, but buyers will be able to choose between standard and extended battery range options, which is claimed to deliver up to 482 km (or 300 miles) on a single charge.
Ford has started taking bookings for the Mustang Mach-E for which a dedicated support website has been created, but their deliveries will start from mid-2021 only. The Mustang Mach-E will be Ford’s first connected vehicle which will start using smartphone as a key.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E will be available in both standard-range with a 75.7 kWh lithium-ion battery and an extended-range variant with 98.8 kWh battery, says the brand.
