Ford to unveil Mustang-inspired EV on 17 November

Continuing on from yesterday’s coverage of the Mazda MX-30, Ford have also released some details on their new electric crossover. The eagerly-awaited EV has been a long time coming and a lot has been made of the fact it is said to use the Mustang as inspiration even though it’s a crossover.

We still don’t know much about it except that image you see above. It tells us nothing new, except perhaps gives us an idea of what to expect in terms of shape and the date but nothing else. The press release for the vehicle says Ford is expecting a range of 370 miles in Europe and 300 miles in the US. I suspect is will be somewhere between the two in reality.

Mustang-EV

To add to speculation, there are a couple of CAD renderings during the rounds that purport to be the Mustang-EV. They do look very similar to the outline in the image above and the teasers we have seen so far. If these are real, the whole Mustang-inspired claim makes a lot more sense.

The front end does look like a Mustang. It has that curved hood with narrow front, angled headlight arrangement and side vents and wheel arches that are similar to a Mustang. The rest of the shape flows in a very smooth way over a raked windshield, curved roof and round to a set of Mustang-eque rear lights with the vertical light cells. A bodykit-style bumper completes the look.

None of this has been confirmed as yet and we expect the actual release to look slightly different. However, if it looks even a little bit like the CAD drawing or the renderings doing the rounds, it’s going to be a very good looking EV indeed!

The range could be a real bonus too. Even if it ‘only’ manages 300 miles. Ford have hinted at multiple battery options, presumably this range would be on the largest and heaviest battery pack. It would do more to alleviate range anxiety though so would be worth the extra weight penalty.

The motor is still a mystery but we think it will be powerful enough to honour the Mustang name and be rear wheel drive. T are also rumours there will be an AWD option we don’t yet know for sure. Anything else is just pure speculation.

With only a couple of weeks to go until its unveiling, we don’t have long to wait until we know what’s going on. In the meantime, Ford has a range of hybrids and EVs already, visit Northway Ford Lincoln, 388 King George Road Brantford ON N3S 3N2 to learn more.
