Ford Mustang Mach-E is an SUV





It seems that most car brands choose to convert the popular SUVs into electric cars first. Not surprising of course, because with combustion engines the large machines are huge polluters, so without emissions there is a lot to be gained. In addition, there is much more space to hide batteries in the off-road vehicles.





Ford also participates in the club where Audi has the e-tron, Mercedes the EQC and Tesla the Model X. The Americans choose to put the Mustang label on the car. Perhaps this is a method to convince the MAGA rednecks that an ICE ( internal combustion engine , or combustion engine) is really not needed for anything.


Anyway, the Mustang Mach-E is indeed a sporty lined car. The designers looked at the iconic design of the Mustang coupé and transferred the styling to the Mach-E. We mainly see a family 'face' at the back. Beforehand, it is more reminiscent of a Mondeo without a grille.





In the interior, the large touchscreen is especially reminiscent of a Tesla. Furthermore, it looks like a sporty, yet comfortable travel SUV.






Performance





The most important question everyone asks with a Mustang is: how hard can it go? With an electric car, the question is: how far can it go? Both questions have a comforting answer. The Mach-E's WLTP range is 600 kilometers. The car has (optional) four-wheel drive and then delivers 337 hp. Of course there is also a stronger GT version. That 465 hp and 830 Nm of torque. The GT accelerates to 100 kilometers per hour in less than five seconds.


Mach-E AWD


Those who prefer a little more power choose the AWD version, which has a second motor on the front axle. Maximum power comes to 248 kW / 337 hp, with 565 Nm of torque. The target price for this version with 75.7 / 98.8 kWh battery is € 57,665 / € 67,140 .


In 2021 there will also be a Mustang Mach-E GT, with 342 kW / 465 hp and 830 Nm. Information about this will be announced later, but given the absence of an internal combustion engine, we are guessing that the price difference with the starter will decrease significantly.
