This is the first thing that should stand out with the Mach-E – a Mustang that’s no longer gas powered. Fifty years of heritage is going to change, and not all Mustang owners are happy about it. But in the grand scheme of things, the Mach-E is a trendsetter. The Mach-E should ignite a new sense of brand awareness for the Mustang. You can only expect that owners will be either thrilled or end up hating it. The electric motor has come a long way from the simplistic days of the GM EV1. So naturally, the Mach-E is fitting to bear the Mustang name. Ford has put a lot of effort into helping the vehicle attract a larger audience than the general electric-powered car.
There’s no denying that Ford is going straight at Tesla with a vehicle that is equally as appealing. The Mach-E will offer a superior level of comfort and refinement for a significantly lower price. Carrying the Mustang name is a lot of responsibility. And as the brand continues to progress into the future it will be interesting to see if the Mustang becomes a full-fledged crossover or if it keeps its sports car demeanor. Brands like Mitsubishi have already turned a long time sports cars into crossovers – take the Eclipse Cross, for instance. The Mach-E is going to be in a crowded space nevertheless.
Even though Ford has been adamant in saying that the Mach-E wasn’t going to be a sports car. The brand still has put a fair amount of performance behind the vehicle. If there is one thing that Tesla is known for its being fast off the line. So naturally, Ford has to come to the table with something as appealing. The Mach-E boasts a pretty quick 0-60 time, which impressed the automotive community. Again Ford has been quick to let us know that the Mach-E isn’t taking over the sports car appeal of the Mustang coupe. But it’s still nice to know that the Mach-E can hold its own on the race track or the urban streets.
It’s interesting to note that the Mach-E doesn’t lose any of its range depending on how you drive it. So no matter if you put the pedal to the metal or drive modestly, the Mach-E is still going to perform the same way. Mach-E buyers are going to be the traditional electric car buyers. But Ford is also looking to attract a new range of buyers who wouldn’t otherwise be interested in an electric vehicle. The Mach-E offers a lot in the way of comparable driving, so the performance off of the line is only going to bolster the sales. Coupled with the Sync integration and self-driving characteristics, the Mach-E should be a pleasure to drive.
As the internal combustion engine is slowly phased out of the automotive industry, we have to wonder what will happen with all that leftover space. Because an electric engine is much smaller by far, cars will now have the option of two trunks. The Mach-E has two trunks, which were showcased at the reveal. The hatch has a crossover design. The hatchback area allows for all of the usual big cargo that you’d have a crossover buyer transporting. In addition to that, there’s another little trunk in the front of the car where the engine would go.
This cargo area is more suitable for groceries and anything drivers need to store in a hurry. Both of these trunks combine to make a car that has a significant advantage over a lot of its competitors. With electric cars slowly becoming the norm ability to add trunk space in different spaces is going to grow. Ford will find a market for these vehicles because of the added cargo space. Nothing is worse than going out on the town to go shopping only to run out of storage space. With the Mach-E ,you’ll have ample space in an efficient and easy-to-drive vehicle.
The Mustang Mach-E is going to be here sooner than you think. Ford has already set the release date for 2020. That’s already going to be a groundbreaking year for Ford, as the Bronco is set to return as well. We have to wonder what kind of reception the Mach-E is going to get. Dealers will have an influx of Mach-Es sitting right next to the gas-powered Mustangs. Ford has long been planning the release of the Mach-E as Tesla has been eroding the company’s reputation for being the alternative energy leader. Only two models of the Mach-E are going to hit the market first. Later models will come around 2021.
The GT model, for instance, is going to be the last one out of the gate. When you think about a notable exception to the rule there have been talks about a Shelby version of the Mach-E. Ford might potentially introduce many of the iconic Mustang lines to the Mach-E including the Bullitt and the Mach-1. When you think about an innovative crossover the Mach-E is something very unique in a spectrum of crowded entries. The Mach-E will stand out from the crowd in a lot of ways due to its unique styling and all-electric power plant. We are pretty sure that Ford is going to be playing with all kinds of ideas.
Ford wants the driver to be more in tuned with the road and with the vehicle. The Mach-E will have various driving functions that coincide with the driver’s mood. These various driving functions change the ambient lighting in the vehicle and how the vehicle drives. Almost too smart. Ford wants the Mach-E to be the most technologically advanced all-electric vehicle to date. You can’t go wrong with how the vehicle looks, and its interior functions are going to bring the driver closer to the road than ever before. The three driving functions are Unbridled, Engage, and Whisper. We think that engagement is going to be the option that gets the most Mustang fanatics on board.
Mustang owners are automatically more engaged with the driving characteristics of their vehicles. This is why the sports car brand has become such a fixture of the automotive world. There are many reasons why the Mustang Mach-E is going to be a more intuitive driving experience. The first of which is the technology that’s going into the car. The Mach-E isn’t just an all-electric vehicle with no personality. Ford has injected a lot of life into this car to make it something truly out of this world. About a Tesla or Nissan Leaf the Mach-E is a unique offering that builds on its Mustang heritage.
As of the current decade, glass roofs are here to stay. Tesla was showing its version of shatterproof glass with the Cybertruck and now Ford is showcasing it with the Mustang Mach-E. We have to wonder what kind of future is in store for the brand if the Mach-E does well. Ford has stated that the glass roof will be a standard feature on the Mach-E. And for those who are wondering, yes, it will be retractable. Of course, there are worries the roof is going to leave you baking in the summertime. Ford has come up with a solution to this as well. The Mach-E will have a special coating on the roof which reflects the heat outwards.
Mach-E buyers will be able to choose between different tints for the glass, an option that many in California and Nevada will appreciate. Mach-E, in general, is a stellar way to showcase alternative energy. Ford has put a lot of focus on the interior aspects of the car. So often automakers are busy designing the outside of the vehicle and lose track of where we spend the majority of our time. The Mach-E is one such car that you’ll enjoy being inside of. For commuters who spend the majority of their life in their car. The glass roof is a great way to give you some type of scenery to look at.
1: The Car Is Equipped With Ford Co-Pilot 360TM 2.0 Technology
Volvo used to be the car company that was obsessed with safety. But nowadays, it’s Ford, and the Mach-E is the first guinea pig for the project. The Co-Pilot program is a series of computerized components that help the car monitor the road. The Mach-E will be constantly monitoring the road and the area around it to ensure that you are driving safe. Things such as parallel parking and backing out will be much easier with the Mach-E. The vehicle will also have self-assisted parking. which a lot of vehicles are now showcasing. If you have never been good at parking, this is a wonderful feature to have. We’ll be curious to see how drivers adapt to the vehicle making their every move.
Knowing that the Mach-E is such a safe ride is a great way to increase consumer satisfaction. Safety is becoming more important than ever. Ford hopes that one day there will be no driver fatalities. With this increased technology, this might very well be a thing in the future. The Co-Pilot has been in development for some time now and this rendition should offer a plethora of new features. In terms of technology and development, the Mach-E is going to offer a serious combination of style and comfort. And it’ll drive for you.
