The Ford Mustang Mach-E Police Car could Happen

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Police Car could Happen

In another piece of Ford news this week, the blue oval is planning to release a Mustang Mach-E police car. The automaker has always encouraged law enforcement to use its vehicles as it drives more sales in other areas and that seems like it will continue.

 

Police sales encourages purchases from other government agencies and other fleets, so having the Ford Mach-E adopted as a cop car makes sense. But can it handle the type of work and mileage an average cop car has to handle?

 

To see if it’s capable enough, Ford has prepared a cop version and will be providing it to the Michigan State Police in the U.S. for testing. This police force is the figurehead for vehicle testing in the country and what it says works, carries a lot of weight.

 

Depending on how testing goes, Ford will adapt the Mustang Mach-E police car to deliver what the force needs until they have a viable vehicle.

 

The process will take a while, as there is a lot of testing and development to do but could be good news for Ford and for our cities.

 

Other countries, including the UK are also looking at the Ford Mach-E for their police to help with their zero emission efforts.

 

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E

 

The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is another Ford vehicle that has made quite the splash.

 

It’s an all-electric crossover SUV designed to take on the Tesla Model Y and Volvo XC40. It’s a great design that may carry the Mustang name but has no relation to the pony car whatsoever.

 

The design is modern, rounded and very composed. It’s a flowing design to maximize slipperiness through the air and provides enough seating for a family and room in the trunk for everything.

 

The interior is spacious and comfortable with high quality materials and a very composed feel.

 

Up front, the large portrait touchscreen dominates while a small screen handles instrumentation. It takes a little getting used to but it will soon become second nature.

 

Seating is comfortable and adjustable and a panoramic sunroof keeps things light and bright. It’s a nice place to spend time.

 

Under the hood

 

Under the hood is either one or two motors with up to four power outputs and two battery packs. Those batteries are a 68-kwh battery pack in Standard Range or an 88-kwh pack in Extended Range version.

 

Those ranges are 230 miles for Standard and up to 300 miles for Extended.

 

There’s an electric motor at the back in the RWD version or one on each axle for the AWD version. Then there’s four power outputs from 290 hp up to 480 hp in the GT.

 

The range is more than enough for most families and commuters but is what is most likely to be a challenge as a police cruiser. It will be interesting to see what Ford comes up with to tackle it.
