2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is an all-electric crossover than Ford unveiled in November 2019. Described as a model that expands the Mustang lineup, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E doesn’t have much in common with the muscle car. Although some of its design features are loosely based on the Mustang, the 2021 Mustang Mach-E is a full-fledged crossover and, more importantly, it’s an all-electric model. The 2021 Mustang Mach-E revives the Mach badge after 15 years, but with a big change that reflects the electric drivetrain. The battery-powered SUV will hit dealerships in 2020 and will compete against the Tesla Model Y. and Jaguar I-Pace. Let’s find out if it’s good enough in the review below.
2020 Ford Mustang Lithium
The 2019 Ford Mustang Lithium is an all-electric version of the sixth-generation Mustang developed by Ford in collaboration with Webasto. Showcased at the 2019 SEMA Show, the Mustang Lithium is just a concept car, but it paves the way toward the Mustang-inspired electric SUV that Ford will launch in 2020. The latter is part of Ford’s plans to invest more than $11.5 billion in electric cars by 2022, so the Mustang Lithium likely features technology that will make it into production vehicles. Is this the future of Ford?
1967 Ford Mustang EV by Charge Cars
Electrifying older cars is an area with huge potential because the vehicles that result from such conversions have classic style and modern performance, all with zero tailpipe emissions. That’s why projects like this 1967 Ford Mustang that’s been modified by Charge Cars in the UK is so intriguing because it not only (still) looks the part, but it’s also blisteringly fast and packed with cool tech too.
The battery-powered Ford Focus has been something of a dark horse in the burgeoning electric-vehicle market. It arrived on the scene in 2012 ahead of the Volkswagen eGolf and Kia Soul EV, but its low-key styling seems to have ensured that it’s stayed out of the alt-fuel spotlight. Even Ford’s hybrids and plug-in hybrids have maintained a higher profile. It’s like Ford just isn’t interested in the car.
The Focus Electric is a solid performer, though, and Ford seems intent on keeping up with the competition. Like the eGolf, it’s notable for maintaining the same entertaining performance and handling as the gasoline-powered version. This and other mainstream electric vehicles are notable because they’re the leading edge of a wave of evolution that’s normalizing electric cars. In the next few years, battery-powered cars are likely to be as casually owned and driven as hybrids are today. Cars like the relatively mundane Focus Electric, which receives a wider range of standard features and new colors for 2016, are making gasoline-free motoring more accessible.
The electric Focus received a price cut in 2014, and gets another for 2016, making it one of the most affordable mainstream electric cars. Whether it’s well-loved by its manufacturer or not, it is a player in the electric-car game.

The storm created by the electric powertrains didn’t surround only the passengers cars, as commercial vehicles were also involved. One of the most popular commercial vehicles converted to run on electricity was Ford’s Transit Connect. The electric version of the model was created in collaboration with Azure Dynamics. Unfortunately, the production was stopped in March 2012, due to Azure’s financial difficulties.
The Transit Connect Electric is equipped with a 55 kilowatt electric drivetrain system which uses a 600 pound 28 kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery. The battery pack offers a pretty limited range of 56 miles.
Apart from the electric drive train, the Ford Transit Connect Electric didn’t receive any other significant modifications and continue to be as practical as it’s conventional powered cousin.
Even if for the moment the Connect Electric went out of production, we can dare to hope for future Electric versions of the van, because Ford’s engineers are currently spending a lot of time in trying to crack the nut of electric powertrains.

Ford is looking for an electrifying participation at the Detroit Auto Show and their jump-starting their attendance with the launch of two of its new C-Max variants: the C-Max Energi and the C-Max Hybrid.
The Ford C-Max Energi will be the first-ever production plug-in hybrid electric vehicle to come out of Ford and will further strengthen the Blue Oval’s global C-car platform. The C-Max Energi five-passenger multi-activity vehicle will be positioned to post better numbers than another one of the US-based company’s hybrid vehicles, the Ford Fusion Hybrid, widely considered as the most fuel-efficient sedan in the US.
The C-Max Energi will be made available in North America and is expected to be built at the company’s Michigan Assembly Plant in Wayne, Michigan together with the new Ford Focus and the Focus Electric. Meanwhile, C-Max Energi models headed for Europe will be built at Ford’s production facility in Valencia, Spain.

According to Ford it delivers a mile-per-gallon equivalent better than the Chevrolet Volt.
