For the first time in 55 years, Ford has expanded the Mustang line-up with the all-electric Mustang Mach-E.

The Mustang Mach-E is available with standard and extended-range battery options with either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive powered by permanent magnet motors. Equipped with an extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, Ford estimates that the Mustang Mach-E provides a pure-electric driving range of more than 370 miles. For those interested in a sportier feel, the performance version, the Mustang Mach-E GT, can go from 0-60mph in less than 5 seconds.

The Mustang Mach-E delivers three drive modes – Whisper, Engage and Unbridled. 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.

Ford’s Mach-E 4 all-wheel drive system applies torque independently to the front and rear axles to provide traction on the road in wet and snowy terrain to help control for slippery conditions. The Mustang Mach-E benefits from Brembo’s Flexira aluminium callipers and is also equipped with MagneRide damping system. Making its debut the SYNC communications and entertainment system that uses machine learning to learn drivers’ preferences and has wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and AppLink apps.

With its batteries inside the underbody, Ford have maximised SUV space for five passengers and luggage. Clever design and engineering touches include storage space under the bonnet to store the equivalent of a carry-on luggage bag. And because it’s drainable, it’s a convenient space to store items such as wet or muddy sports clothing, hiking boots or beach gear. In addition to this exterior front trunk, the boot offers 402 litres of space expanding to 1,420 litres of space with the boot down.

The limited First Edition is an 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".

The Mustang Mach-E comes in both standard-range (75.7 kWh lithium-ion battery) and extended-range (98.8 kWh battery) secured inside a waterproof battery case surrounded by crash absorption protection. The battery uses an advanced active liquid heating and cooling system to regulate temperatures for optimised performance in extreme weather and to improve charging times.

Mindful that electric vehicle owners do 80 per cent of their charging at home, Ford offers a Ford Connected Wallbox solution and access to the FordPass Charging Network.
