Why Ford Mustang Hybrid Has Not Been in Plans

2023 Ford Mustang Mach-e is more expensive than its predecessor

Despite the numerous rumors about the Ford Mustang Hybrid’s arrival for the next generation, it won’t definitely be.

When it comes to the Ford Mustang, the Blue Oval remains committed to the idea of a true V8-powered muscle car.

Given electrification is in trend in recent years, and Ford, like other brands, has its own electrification program, many people expected the seventh-generation Mustang S650 would add a hybrid model.

However, this did not happen. Some are disappointed, and some are happy, but the iconic pony car remains the same Mustang loved by many. Thus, for followers of traditions, Ford has a classic internal-combustion-engined Mustang, and for adherents of progress and the clean environment – a Ford Mustang Mach-e electric car.

While Dodge plans to remove V8 engines from its lineup, and Chevrolet discontinues the Camaro after the 2024 model year, the Mustang still retains its V8 and may become the last muscle car with a V8 under the hood on the market.

In the United States, Ford sold 33,364 Mustangs and 28,089 Mustang Mach-E cars from January to September 2022.
