Pony Power Goes Electric with Mustang Mach-E

When you think about the Ford Mustang, you probably imagine heart-pounding speed and performance in a sleek coupe or convertible design. Now, Mustang fans will have a new option to choose from in the form of the Mustang Mach-E. This is an all-electric SUV that sets the bar high for electric performance and capabilities.

“The Mustang Mach-E wholeheartedly rejects the notion that electric vehicles are only good at reducing gas consumption,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s chief product development and purchasing officer. “People want a car that’s thrilling to drive, that looks gorgeous, and that can easily adapt to their lifestyle — and the Mustang Mach-E delivers all of this in unmatched style.”

The Mustang Mach-E will arrive late this year and will be available with either a standard or extended-range battery option. With the extended-range battery, the Mach-E is expected to have a total driving range of at least 300 miles. It will also have a targeted output near 332 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque.

For driver looking for even more power, there will be two special performance versions available. The GT model will be able to reach 60 mph in less than 4 seconds, while the GT Performance Edition will boast a 0-60 mph time in the mid-3-second range.

The Mustang Mach-E is available to reserve now on Ford’s website, and we can’t wait to welcome it later this year to our showroom here at Midwest Ford.

An All-Electric Ford F-150 Pickup Truck Is Happening

Unparalleled power and eco-friendly efficiency are at odds no more. This January, Ford’s president revealed that a battery-electric Ford F-150 is in the automaker’s future plans, joining the elite group of automakers (like Tesla and Rivian) that have promised upcoming fully-electric pickup trucks. Although there is no set release date yet for the all-electric Ford F-150, we think it’d be fitting if America’s best-selling truck lineup was the first one to make it to market with an all-electric, cutting-edge pickup truck.

Ford’s president, Jim Farley, revealed that the automaker is going to “be electrifying the F-Series — both battery-electric and hybrid” over the next few years. A hybrid F-150 is set to debut in 2020, which means that the F-series will likely enter its next generation for the 2021 model year. If this is the case, the electric and hybrid powertrains will accompany a fully redesigned Ford truck that boasts cutting-edge tech and design.

No specifics on the upcoming Ford F-150 hybrid or EV (electric vehicle) have been released yet. However, Ford has been pivoting to offer more electric powertrains across its lineup, including in its new electric crossover that is inspired by the Mustang’s iconic design.
