Ford unveils 2020 Mustang Mach-E

Ford unveils 2020 Mustang Mach-E

After much discussion, debate and speculation, Ford finally unveiled their new EV, the 2020 Mustang Mach-E. After being discussed for years, speculated about for months and hyped for weeks, we can finally see what all the fuss is about.

2020 Mustang Mach-E

The 2020 Mustang Mach-E doesn’t look at all like a Mustang except for the lights. The profile is much more akin to a Tesla than pony car. It’s a great look though. A very stylish front end with filled-in grille, slower sill, air vents and lights that do look like the Mustang.

The profile is part fastback, park hatchback but that description doesn’t quite do it justice. It’s a GT style car that could genuinely sit beside a Maserati and not feel inferior. The rear has a small screen with rooftop spoiler, more Mustang-like lights and some body detailing. Overall, the profile is a great design, modern, sharp and looks the business without being too out there.

The interior of the 2020 Mustang Mach-E is an excellent mix of the futuristic and the present. The driving position is relaxed but quite traditional with normal steering wheel with controls, normal armrest in the centre and controls on the doors. The instrument cluster is a smart screen and the huge tablet in the centre stack is definitely taken from Tesla.

The mechanicals

The 2020 Mustang Mach-E has a wide range of performance figures depending on the trim you go for. A Select trim is RWD and has a range of 230 miles which reduces to 210 with AWD. The California Route 1 and Premium Extended Range trims have a range of 300 miles in AWD and RWD modes.

Initially, only Premium and First Edition trims will be available with others following later. The Premium has AWD and 230 miles range while the Route 1 is AWD with 300 miles of range.

The two trims have two battery pack options. The standard trim has a 75.7-kilowatt-hour, 288-cell lithium-ion battery pack which sends power to a motor at the rear. The extended range model uses a 98.8 KWh battery with 376 cells that sends power to motors at the front and rear.

The motor in the AWD extended range models will generate the equivalent of 332 hp and 417 lb-ft of torque. Premium and RWD models will have around 282 hp and 306 lb-ft of torque on tap. A more powerful GT Performance Edition will become available with around 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque.

Charging can be done with Ford Mobile Chargers that work with 110v or 240v outlets. At 110v you’ll charge at 3 miles per hour while at 240v you’ll charge at 22 miles per hour. An optional Ford Connected Charge Station can connect to a 240v volt feed for 32 miles of charge per hour.

The 2020 Mustang Mach-E will be available from 2020 with the exact date to be announced later. Visit Northway Ford Lincoln to learn more.
