Ford has unveiled its all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E, an all-new model that symbolises the beginning of a new electrified era for Ford. This is one of 14 electrified Ford vehicles coming to Europe by the end of 2020. The Mustang Mach-E has an estimated 465 horsepower and 830Nm of torque. It promises a driving range of up to 600km under WLTP regulations. When it arrives in Ireland next year, it will be priced from €50,000.
Mustang Mach-E delivers three unique drive modes – Whisper, Engage and Unbridled – each offering finely tuned driving dynamics packaged with a distinct sensory experience. Features include custom-designed vehicle responsiveness such as sportier steering controls, ambient lighting, sounds tuned for an authentic all-electric experience, and dynamic cluster animations that are tied to driving behaviour. When the vehicle launches, a new Mach-E 4 all-wheel drive system applies torque independently to the front and rear axles to deliver impressive acceleration and improved handling over the rear-wheel drive model. Ford tuned this system to provide excellent traction on the road, rigorously testing the vehicle in wet and snowy terrain to help control for slippery conditions.
“Whether you want to really feel its performance capability or are looking for the quiet experience that electric vehicles can offer, the Mustang Mach-E harnesses the power of electrification to create a unique driving experience while retaining that unmistakable Mustang feeling of freedom,” said Ted Cannis, Ford enterprise product line director, global electrification.
In addition to blistering acceleration, Mustang Mach-E will be available with Brembo’s all-new performance Flexira aluminium callipers, which maintain the functionality of a fixed calliper while being designed with the dimensions of a floating calliper. The Mustang Mach-E GT is also equipped with MagneRide damping system, an adaptive suspension technology that lets drivers hug the road while delivering an exciting, comfortable ride. A limited First Edition will be available in extended-range, all-wheel drive configuration, with exclusive Grabber Blue Metallic paint, full-length panorama roof, contrasting seat stitching and a scuff plate marked “First Edition.”
Finally, getting in and starting the vehicle is easy and effortless with ‘Phone As A Key’ technology, which makes its debut in the Ford brand line-up in Mustang Mach-E. Using Bluetooth, the vehicle can detect customers’ smartphones as they approach, unlocking the Mustang Mach-E and allowing them to start driving without getting their phones out of their pockets or using a key fob. A backup code can be entered into a keypad on the B-pillar to unlock the vehicle, and a separate code into the centre touchscreen to start and drive the vehicle, in the event a phone battery dies.
