Ford today introduced a very interesting car. It’s called a Mustang Mach-E, and it’s an electric car. But, probably, the main feature is that the first-ever electric Mustang is a crossover.
It’s not very clear why Ford decided that the cult car should change the class when switching to electric traction or that the company’s first sports electric crossover should be named after the cult sedan. Be that as it may, in front of us is the electric Mustang Mach-E crossover.
Dimensions of the car – 4,724 x 1,880 x 1,600 mm, wheelbase – 2,971 mm, ground clearance – 145 mm. The set of engines is quite large. The basic version of the crossover is equipped with a 255 hp installation, while the GT version boasts a 465 hp engine. (830 Nm of torque). Acceleration to 100 km / h – from 8 s for the base version to about 3.5 s – for the top one. The drive of the car can be rear or full.
There are several options for battery capacity: from 75.7 to 98.8 kWh. The power reserve in this case depends on the battery and on the engine. Minimum for cars promise 420 km, maximum – 600 km. Charging power – 150 kW.
The interior of the car is not like the rest of the Ford cars. Here the laconicism and huge vertical screen of the infotainment system with a diagonal of 15.5 inches rules the ball.
Of the unusual features, one can note the absence of handles for opening doors (here the touch buttons in the racks), a panoramic roof with protection against infrared radiation, the Sync 4 operating system with artificial intelligence and the ability to control a number of functions from a smartphone.
The cost of an electric Mustang is from 44,000 to 60,500 dollars. Sales will begin at the end of next year.
