  • Ford Mustang Mach-E is the first all-electric SUV from Ford.
  • Will rival the Tesla Model Y.
  • Mustang Mach-E GT will be launched in 2020.
  • No India plans for the foreseeable future.

Ford has named its first all-electric SUV, and it has chosen to call it the Mustang Mach-E. The name is in honor of the Mustang Mach-1 which was one of the iconic designs of the Mustang. The new electric SUV is based on Ford’s new electric vehicle platform called ‘Global Electrified 2’, which is in itself an evolution of the C2 platform.

The Mustang Mach-E generates 333 bhp in its most powerful variant currently, although Ford says that an upcoming GT version will have 460 bhp. The GT variant will launch at some point in 2020.

It will be launched with a choice of either a 75 kWh battery or 256 bhp motor with a range of 450 km, or a 99 kWh battery with a 286 bhp motor and a range of 595 km. Both engines produce a peak torque of 416 Nm and power the rear wheels.

An all-wheel-drive Mach-E will also be offered, with two motors. The battery packs will be the same as the others, with a 75 kWh battery feeding a combined 255 bhp (with a range of 419 km) or 99 kWh battery feeding a combined 333 bhp (with a range of 540 km). Both configurations will offer 582 Nm and a 0-100 kph time of barely 7 seconds.

The Mustang Mach-E styling uses a lot of design cues from the Mustang sports car, but there’s a significant amount of Tesla and Porsche SUV influence in its sporty roofline and gaping (and closed off) grille. Ford has been particular to extend the front overhang, a nod to the Mustang Mach 1’s design element that was the same.

Inside, the Mustang Mach-E’s cabin is quite minimalist. A 15.5-inch tablet-like vertical touchscreen offers control of a host of things, and the digital instrumentation isn’t a color screen, surprisingly.
