Ford's Mustang Mach E electric crossover SUV is unveiled tonight in Los Angeles, ahead of the LA Auto Show. Electrek is at the event and will give you full coverage of everything you need to know about the car here.
(Update: this article previously stated that the live stream should start at 18:30 – stream starts at 1750, while reservations start at 18:30.
Although we already know most of Mustang Mach E's specifications due to a leak on Ford's website on Thursday, we have to find out some new things on event.
In particular, we already know that the car will start at $ 36,000 dollars ($ 43,895 minus $ 7,500 US federal tax credit), although the "premium" and "first edition" models launching in late 2020 will be more expensive ($ 50,6,000 and $ 59,9,000 before incentive). Other models were launched in beginning of 2021
Mach E will have a 0-60 performance of between 3-6 seconds, depending on alternatives, and has 230-300 miles of all-electric range, and will charge a maximum of ~ 47 miles every 10 minutes on a 150 kW DC charger.
We also know what the car will look like, after testing mules, you guys tter rendered, and then spy photos, Ford's website leak finally showed us a proper look at the car without camouflage, and we've even seen some real-life photos snatched from a leaked press video.
There are a few questions left, though: how big is the Mustang Mach E compared to other crossover SUVs? How effective is it and what is the actual rate of tax? And finally, where the heck are the door handles?
These questions and more will be answered tonight, in Ford's livestream which you can see here. It goes live at 5:50 PM PST / 8: 50EST:
We follow the live stream and update this page with something interesting happening in the stream or at the event . Reload this page for more information as the event unfolds.
We also want our own articles and videos about the car that we link below while going live:
Ford plans to make $ 500 refundable reservations for Mustang Mach E tonight at 06.30 / 09.30, just after the broadcast. We add the link when we get it.
Ford is finally taking the electric seriously and seems to be doing so in a big way. Mach E is one of the few cars designed from the ground up with specifications that look like they're challenging Tesla directly with a fast, competent, well-designed electric vehicle at a reasonable price and launches to the same market at about the same time. We are very excited to see how it all turns out.
What do you think about Mustang Mach E so far? Let us know in the comments below throughout the day and when the stream goes live.
