An electric crossover variant of the Ford Mustang. It shares nothing in common mechanically with the Mustang, the commonalities are all in styling.



History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Ford Mustang Mach-E page on 9 March 2021, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a five-door electric crossover SUV produced by Ford. The vehicle was introduced on November 17, 2019, and went on sale in December 2020 as a 2021 model. The car won the 2021 North American SUV of the Year Award.

The Mach-E name is inspired by the Mach 1 variant of the first-generation Mustang.

Conventional door handles are absent on the Mustang Mach-E, and the vehicle instead features buttons that pop open the doors and a small door handle protruding from the front doors. Owners can use their smartphones as a key as well as a keypad built into the B-pillar.

The interior has a wide dashboard and built-in soundbar; the dash is equipped with a vertically mounted 15.5 in (39 cm) touchscreen infotainment system with a rotary dial fixed onto it. The majority of the car’s systems are controlled through the screen, which uses Ford's recent SYNC 4 operating system that can accept wireless updates. A 10.2 in (26 cm) digital cluster for the driver is also featured, while the steering wheel retains a number of physical buttons.

The Mustang Mach-E is built on the Global Electrified 1 (GE1) platform which is a heavily reworked version of the C2 platform that is used on the fourth generation Focus and third generation Kuga/fourth generation Escape.

The model will be launched with two battery pack sizes and three power outputs. The entry-level rear-wheel drive version is offered with either a 68 kWh battery pack driving a 266 hp (198 kW) motor or a 88 kWh extended battery pack driving a 290 hp (220 kW) motor. Both battery packs have a claimed 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) time of 6.1 seconds or less and an EPA range of around 211 and 300 mi (340 and 483 km) respectively.
