Someone Caught the New Ford Mach-E Electric SUV on Camera - First Look

Someone Caught the New Ford Mach-E Electric SUV on Camera - First Look

It actually looks like a Mustang!

Ford’s upcoming all-electric and Mustang-inspired SUV was caught testing in the wild with a production body. The crossover is wrapped in camouflage from bumper to bumper, but the details show through the wrap, so it’s our best look at this vehicle yet. The Ford Mach-E, as it’s expected to be called, will make its official debut at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, most likely in pre-production form.

The Mustang-Inspired Ford Mach-E EV Will Be Offered in RWD Guise

The Mustang-Inspired Ford Mach-E EV Will Be Offered in RWD Guise

Electrify America tried to make it right, but once it’s on the internet….. well, you know.

Ford has been touting that its new Mustang-inspired Crossover EV, the one that will probably be called the Mach E, will be able to be charged all over North America. We know this because it was announced that it’s partnering up with Electrify America. That’s all well and great, but Electrify America’s version of the press release pointed out that the new electric SUV will have an “estimated range of 300 miles with an extended battery and rear-wheel drive, in late 2020.”

Ford Gets Shady With Ford Mach E Range Estimates on Official Webpage

Ford Gets Shady With Ford Mach E Range Estimates on Official Webpage

Just a couple of days ago, Ford’s new Mach E website – the one that lets you map out your trips to see how far you can go in the Mach E EV – said: “up to 370 miles of all-electric range.” That figure sounded damn good but quite suspicious as well and, not surprisingly, Ford has quietly changed it. Presumably, Ford was hoping nobody noticed, but we have the receipts and a good idea of exactly what happened. Keep reading to find out!

Ford, Rivian, or Tesla? The Electric Pickup Truck Battle Has Already Begun!

Ford, Rivian, or Tesla? The Electric Pickup Truck Battle Has Already Begun!

None of these companies have a threatening advantage over the other two

The latest segment to be hit by the electrification bug is pickup trucks. Although some electric firms - Tesla and Rivian - have been into electrification for years, mainstream automakers have also decided to jump in before it gets too late. The Tesla and Rivian war has been on since the two decided to enter the electric pickup truck foray. The two have been approaching the segment differently and have kind of eased into their spaces. Now that Ford is developing an electric powertrain of its own for the F-150, things could get even more exciting. I’ve listed out five possible scenarios that may or may not be hypothetical.

Ford Announces $500 Million Investment Into Rivian to Use EV Skateboard Platform

Ford and Rivian form strategic partnership to jointly develop future Blue Oval EV

General Motors was already in talks with Rivian, but it seems that agreement has fallen through and another American automotive giant, Ford, has secured a deal with the EV maker for use of its skateboard platform and the joint-development of a future Blue Oval EV. Ford will sink $500 million into Rivian as part of a much bigger investment in EVs, estimated at $11 billion that includes models like the all-electric Mustang-like crossover or the all-electric F-150 pickup.

Ford's Mustang-inspired Electric Crossover is Coming Sooner Than You Think

Ford’s Mustang-inspired Electric Crossover is Coming Sooner Than You Think

Electric Crossover Ford Mach E, Or Whatever The Name Ends Up Being, On Sale In 2020

After it was confirmed that Lincoln will base its first electric car on top of the chassis of the future Mustang-Inspired electric crossover, now Ford actually laid out its plan for the introduction of that Mustang-inspired crossover. A “Full Year Earnings Review and 2019 Outlook” document, released only hours ago, shows that Ford will reveal an all-new “all-electric utility this year and put it on sale in 2020.” This will basically be the first car developed by Team Edition - a Ford subdivision focused on development of electric cars.

Ford has been playing with the electric Mustang-inspired crossover idea for months now. First Ford planned to name it the Mach 1, but after the fan backlash at the mention of that name, the company swiftly trademarked the Mach E and the Mach-E nameplates. It is not yet sure if the crossover will bear that name at all, but it seems that everything points in that direction.

Lincoln Will Rebadge Ford's Mustang-Based EV and Still Make it Undeniably a Lincoln

Lincoln Will Rebadge Ford’s Mustang-Based EV and Still Make it Undeniably a Lincoln

Yup, We Will Have An Electric Lincoln, Probably In 2020

I know this title could give some ‘Stang lovers diarrhea, but you’ve read that right. First of all, there will be a rebadged Mustang-inspired EV Crossover by Ford, and then Lincoln will use the same platform to create its own car.

That’s the order of things nowadays, and we should actually be happy. Team Edison, a team Jim Hackett formed when he was appointed as Head of Ford, looks for a number of ways to create a sustainable EV business case and cool cars/crossovers at that. Actually, Ford plans to invest 10 billion of its money in EV research and development by 2022. That’s a lot of money spent fast. Something magical could come out of all of that.

Ford’s Looking to an Electrified Future and the Brand’s Next Move Just Might Surprise you

The king of the jungle has decided to adopt electrification before it sinks into oblivion

Ford has confirmed plans to build a fully electric F-Series pickup in a bid to protect the truck against competitors like Tesla and Rivian. It was only a matter of time before this announcement was made, so it’s not all that surprising, but it has come a little earlier than expected. With electrification being the only option in the future, even the best of the best will have to succumb to the pressure and finally give in.

The 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid Features a Weird Drivetrain Layout

Where’s the 3.0-liter EcoBoost from the Aviator?

Ford made somewhat of a surprise move at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show and introduced a couple more versions of the brand-new Explorer. Unveiled just last week, the Explorer came to Detroit in new ST and Hybrid trims. The latter features a rather weird drivetrain layout, especially given what FoMoCo offers in other hybrids.

2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid promises 500 miles range

Thanks to the clever battery placement, the interior and the cargo space is uncompromised

The Explorer line up now feels complete with the debut of the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid. It feels like the Blue Oval is a little late to the Hybrid-SUV party, but the company has made sure to capitalise on all the hype the Explorer has created over the years and has launched the Explorer SUV in the Hybrid from with an acclaimed range of 500 miles!

Ford Won’t Use the Mach 1 Name On An SUV - It’ll Use the Newly Patented Mach-E

Is it still disgracing the iconic Mach 1 name?

The crossover craze continues unabated, and rumor has it Ford is getting in on the action with a new electrified model that could carry some DNA over from the Mustang, including a name derived from the iconic Mach 1. However, diehards will be pleased to know the fresh utility vehicle most likely will receive a new nameplate all its own - “Mach-E.”

Volkswagen Could Share its EV Platform with Ford

The Blue Oval needs all the help it can get with electrifying its range

Last week Bloomberg published a report that the Volkswagen Group and the Ford Motor company are looking to collaborate to create self-driving vehicles in order to reduce development costs on both sides. It was definitely a change as the two companies’ initial tie-up announcement was only supposed to involve commercial vehicles - now it could be expanded with electric vehicle platform sharing too.

Ford Teases the 2020 Mach 1 SUV with a Very Mustang-Like Rear End

It’s not going to be called the Mach 1 anymore, and that’s a good thing

Ford has released the first teaser image of its Mustang-inspired electric crossover, giving us our first look at the controversial model. The teaser image shows the rear section of the crossover tucked in the shadows. We don’t see the whole thing, but the outline of the crossover is easy to make out, specifically its resemblance to the model that it’s supposed to be inspired by.

2019 Ford Territory

2019 Ford Territory

It’s A New SUV, But Only For China

Although it will never come to the U.S. in this guise (or any other I am afraid), I feel that we should know all there is to know about the new Ford Territory. This very car may showcase the future of Ford crossovers. Revealed for the Chinese market only, the Ford Territory is actually a reimagination of the famous Territory sold in Australia. However, unlike the Australian car which was a full-fledged Ford product, the newest Ford Territory is actually a rebadged JMC Yusheng S330. Ford developed it with Jiangling Motors Corporation (JMC) to give Chinese customers another option in the sea of similar compact SUVs available there.

It’s the “quiet” before the storm

Well, Ford recently revealed the all-new Police Interceptor Utility, which is the first pursuit-rated Hybrid SUV ever.
