Ford’s new Mustang-inspired all-electric SUV testing is underway. The Ford Mach E prototype was captured by spy cameras on the roads in the USA.
Ford will probably launch its pure electric crossover with promised 300-miles range next year as a 2021 model. We’ve already seen a vague teaser photo of the rear end. Now the first photos made in real-life conditions demonstrate a test vehicle making road tests in Michigan.
The dense camouflage and add-ons hide the details and prevent from judging the overall size, but the whole bulky and clumsy silhouette can be appreciated. It seems to be rather low and wide for a crossover.
There is a huge frontal area and very tall hood, which may be a trick of the disguise. The hood’s curved leading edge, grille opening, three-bar vertical taillights (previously revealed by the teaser) are similar to the Mustang’s.
We believe the Ford Mach E will have a sharply raked rear glass like today’s crossover coupe models.
The Mach E underpins a new dedicated EV platform. A couple of electric motors, one on each axle, will likely power the SUV producing near 300 hp in total.
To be able to cover 300 miles on a single charge, the model should have a large-capacity battery. We expect a 100.0-kWh one.
Ford promises affordable pricing for the Mach E.
