ford-revives-mach-1-nameplate-for-electric-performance-suv-122758_1.jpg

by Mircea Panait, 15 Jan 2018

Remember the Mach 1? If you don’t, Ford offered the Mach 1 as an option package for the 1969 Mustang SportsRoof. And it’s a wicked-looking machine, window louvers and all, plus the optional Shaker hood scoop.

But the days the Mustang carried the Mach 1 badge are long gone, with Ford having other plans. In 2020, the Mach 1 will come back from the dead as the handle for… wait for it… an all-electric performance SUV.

“So it’s not based on the Mustang?” The Blue Oval didn’t tell, but executive vice president Raj Nair made it clear the Mustang and Mach 1 won’t share the platform. In addition to this mysterious piece of information, the Mach 1 is a working title.

Product communications manager Mike Levine highlights that Ford is researching the name to see how customers will respond, which is why anything can happen by 2020. The Mach 1 moniker also appears in the official teaser for the electric SUV, so read what you will into this set of circumstances.

Speaking of the teaser, press play and come back here are you’re done. Here’s the sitrep: one Mustang and one Expedition, the tagline “Born In Detroit,” and the confirmation that the mystery vehicle is developed by Team Edison. Could this mean the e-SUV is inspired by the Mustang or has sporting attributes in the same vein as the quintessential pony car?

It’s nigh-on impossible to make up one’s mind about what the future will hold. It doesn’t help either that Team Edison’s research & development is secret, but what we do know is that Ford is betting big on electrification.

In addition to the electric SUV, the Ford Motor Company confirmed that the F-150 and Expedition will receive hybrid models in a couple of years. In addition to those two, the Mustang is also confirmed to adopt some sort of hybrid powertrain that integrates an unspecified EcoBoost-type engine.

In total, Ford will launch 40 electrified vehicles by 2022. 16 of them will be pure electric, whilst the remaining 24 will arrive in the form of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Ford Revives Mach 1 Name for Performance EV to Arrive in 2020



Last night Ford debuted two exciting new products: the new Ranger pickup, and the revived Mustang Bullitt.

But there was one other important announcement to come from Ford this week. During the Ranger and Bullitt debut event, the automaker showed a video depicting an Explorer and a Mustang drivinginto the garage bay at its new Corktown EV research center in Detroit. Shortly after, the garage door opens and a streak of red light emerges from the garage and darts down Michigan Avenue. The words ‘Mach 1’ then flash across the screen.

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Will Please EV Fans, Perplex Mustang Loyalists


Ford's first all-electric crossover may feature an un-Mustang-like body style, but it offers 300 miles of range when equipped with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive.

I hate it, its ugly as sin, and a disgrace to the mustang name.

They'd have been better off making a Electric pony car. But that won't sell. So they disgraced the Mustang name by making an electric crossover.

They could have used any other of the past family sedan/truck name plates.

wut? Aesthetically, it's very attractive for it's body type. Hell of a lot nicer looking than other crossovers. The name is dumb but surely you're smart enough to look past that and judge this car on its own merits, right?

No, it's not a Mustang. But it is a handsome electric crossover.

Half the internet is having a tantrum over this because of the name lol.

It would look better if it didn’t have that front end. But they gotta force Mustang into it lol

It’s like Honda coming out with a sporty new minivan and calling it a Civic Si+.

This immediately stood out to me, Amazon is involved.
8. How can I charge my Mustang Mach-E at home?


Most charging is done at home. Your vehicle is equipped with a Ford Mobile Charger that is estimated to add an average range of 22 miles per charging hour through a 240V outlet.⁶ The same Ford Mobile Charger is estimated to add an average range of three miles per charging hour on a 120V outlet and you can plug in just about anywhere.⁶ For a faster home charge rate,⁷ Ford recommends the available Ford Connected Charge Station that is wifi-enabled adding an estimated average range of 32 miles per charging hour through a 240V outlet for a full charge overnight.⁶ You will be able to finance the Connected Charge Station at time of vehicle purchase. In the US, Ford offers a program with Amazon that makes home installation of a 240V outlet easy and convenient.
