This Ford Mustang Mach-E Pickup Rendering Could be a Perfect Electric Ranger Raptor
Ford’s decision to use the “Mustang” name on the Mach-E electric crossover opened a lot of doors, some of which Ford may or may not want to be opened. One of these doors leads to a long and window road riddled with speculation about Ford’s future plans for the “Mustang” name. Is the Mustang Mach-E a one-time deal that Ford did to generate interest in the electric crossover by having it carry the “Mustang” name? On the flip side, does Ford have plans to use the iconic nameplate on other non-muscle car models? Rendering artist Aksyonov Nikita wondered the same thing, but instead of waiting for an answer, he decided to create a rendering on one possible non-muscle car model that could use the “Mustang” nameplate in the future. Meet the Ford Mustang Mach-E Truck.
Rumor Has It that the Ford Mach-1 is Coming Back, And It Could Be Electric
Remember when people rioted across the streets of the internet when Ford announced it was going to use the Mach 1 name and what has now debuted as the Mach-E? Well, a new video – on that has since been taken private – posted by CJPonyParts, suggested that the Mach 1 name was going to be applied to a new Mustang once the Mustang Bullitt is killed off in 2021. Details were scarce, and the video is now AWOL, but here’s what we think we know.
Brace Yourself – The Mustang Name Will Soon Be a “Performance Sub-Brand”
It only took a week for the First Edition models of the Mach-E to drop off the U.S. reservation page, signaling that the Mach-E First Edition is, essentially, sold out. Now, it looks like Ford has actually decided the Mustang name should be a “Performance sub-brand.” You better buckle in, folks, this is going to be an interesting ride.
Ford Hopes That Fake V-8 Engine Noise Will Help You Forget that the Mach-E Isn’t Really a Mustang
The Ford Mustang Mach-E proudly carries the nameplate of the iconic muscle car, but as an electric crossover, the Mach-E noticeably lacks the aggressive exhaust note that has come to define the Mustang name. Ford knows this, and instead of letting the Mach-E sound like a wispy electric car, the Blue Oval decided to inject an audible soundtrack that would convey the typical sounds of power and performance without compromising the crossover’s all-electric persona. The result is a sound that imitates an internal combustion engine without one actually being there.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Just Introduced the Ford Sync 4 Infotainment System
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E might be famous for being the first Mustang with an SUV body, but it’s much more than that. On top of being the most efficient electric car created by Ford so far, it also introduces a brand-new version of the company’s SYNC infotainment system, which comes with a massive 15.5-inch touchscreen. If you want to find out how future Fords will look inside the cabin, take a good peek inside the 2021 Mustang Mach-E.
Mustang Expert and Historian Starts a Petition to Change The Mustang Mach-E’s Name
News that Ford wanted to name its first electric SUV the Mustang Mach-E raised quite a few eyebrows and upset some hardcore Mustang fans, but it seemed one of those cases when everything will be forgotten once the hype fades way. The 2021 Mustang Mach-E just debuted at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show and it seems we were wrong.
Jimmy Dinsmore, a Mustang enthusiasts and historian, was so upset by the idea that he started a petition to change the crossover’s name. And as of November 20, 1,500 have signed it and the number keeps growing.
Ford Is Limiting the Mustang Mach-E Production in the First Year, But It Won’t Sell That Many Anyway
Ford president of automotive, Joe Hinrichs, has revealed that the Blue Oval plans to build 50,000 units of the Mustang Mach-E in its first year of production. As eye-popping as that figure sounds, it’s actually capped to that number, at least in part, because of battery availability.
The volume is enough to raise some eyebrows, but not at all surprising. The more important question is whether Ford can actually sell 50,000 units of the Mustang Mach-E in its first year of production. Given the current landscape of the market, it is reasonable to think that even if Ford “caps” production to 50,000 units in the first year of production, it might not be able to sell that many anyway.
Ford F-150, Rivian R1T, or Tesla Cybertruck? The Electric Pickup Truck Battle Has Already Begun!
