It looks like someone at Ford wasn't careful enough with the upcoming Mustang Mach-E reservation website, because now a bunch of pictures and specifications leaked three days before the car is set to make its official debut. A bunch of screen captures ended up on the forum site MachEForum.com, and now we know a lot more about Ford's first major EV before we should.
The screen captures contain a wealth of information, including Mach E's reach and charge time estimates, MSRP and 0-60 time. It also says customers can expect deliveries by the end of 2020. But take all this with a grain of salt: this site could have been a kind of placeholder, and specifications could change dramatically before the official debut. Don't assume that these numbers represent the final word on the Mustang Mach-E.
That said, the information seems to match much of the buzz circulating about the car. According to the leaked site, Mach-E will come in five trims: Select, Premium, California Rt. 1, GT and first edition. The select version of the car starts at an MSRP of $ 43,895, followed by Premium to $ 50,600, California Rt. 1 to $ 5,200, limited edition to $ 59,900, and GT to $ 60,500. All of those prices are pre-factoring in the $ 7,500 federal EV tax relief.
Depending on the trim, the range can range from 210 miles (Select with four-wheel drive) to 300 miles (California Rt. 1 with rear-wheel drive). The upper trims seem to be just AWD. Either way, it's a very respectable interval estimate that will surely give Tesla and other EV aspirants a run for their money. Incredibly, the leaked images suggest that Mach-E can add 47 miles of range per 10 minutes of charging.
The interior of the car has two digital screens, one behind the wheel, and the other in the middle of the dash, the Tesla Model 3 style. The center screen appears to be the entirety of the infotainment system, again much like the Model 3. It's going to be very interesting to watch as Ford engineers and designers dance around the inevitable Tesla questions they will have while showcasing this car for the first time.
Ford recently announced the forthcoming release of the next-generation infotainment system, Sync 4. As such, the Mach-Es touch screen is probably 15.5 inches, and looks at how it is the maximum size supported by Sync 4. All The car manufacturer's 2020 vehicles are expected to come pre-loaded with the infotainment system.
When it comes to the car itself, the traditional traps for an internal combustion engine car, such as a front grille and rear pipe, are gone. But instead of a smooth front end like the Model 3, the Mach-E has a cutout that surrounds the Mustang logo. It almost looks like a baby Mustang trying to push itself out of the mouth of a bigger car. At first glance it is a bit confusing and may take a little getting used to.
"The Future of Excitement" is the tag line Ford Mustang Mach-E – which is better than the often tangled versions of the "Built Ford Tough" that we have been given before.
