2021 Ford Mach E Will Combine Electric Power with Mustang-Esque Styling
Ford has promised that its new electric crossover is coming soon with 300 miles of driving range.
Ford is planning to release a new all-electric crossover with styling inspired by the Mustang.
It could possibly wear the name Mach E and is expected to have a driving range of 300 miles on a single charge.
Look for the Mach E to arrive in 2020 with a starting price around $40,000.
It's no secret that Ford is working on a new electric crossover, with a styling assist from the Mustang. Allegedly, it puts enough of an emphasis on performance that the name Mach 1 was briefly considered (and quickly dropped due to backlash). But even if applying that name to this creation was deemed too heretical — Mach E is reportedly still in the running as an alternative — Ford is keen to connect it to classic Mustang design cues, such as the familiar three-bar taillights and fastback roofline. There's no grille at the front, but there is a pony.
Now that all its fuel-efficient passenger cars are exiting stage left, Ford needs to prove that it is still committed to greenery. And it's crucial that this new EV be desirable, hence the grafted-on Mustang heritage.
