Not everyone is interested in the idea of an electric Ford Mustang crossover, but Mustang Mach-E definitely happens anyway. If you are one of the naysayers, you might like it better when you see all the pictures and specifications – which you should do.
Someone at Ford published what appears to be an early version of the reservation site for Mustang Mach E 2020 late Thursday night, which was brought to our attention by the people living in the Mach-E Forum .
The site has range estimates, cost estimates and a meal of 0-60 mph for the car that will not be available to customers until late 2020.
The site went down very quickly during the time we wrote this post, but this is not our first rodeo. We took screenshots.
Although we expect the final specifications to change between the actual debut of the car and the information you should see being a placeholder of some sort, this is what we know: Mach E comes in five trims, starting as low as the $ 43,895 Select model. It goes from there to Premium at $ 50,600, to California Route 1 at $ 52,400, the Limited First Edition to $ 59,900, and finally closed with the best GT model at $ 60,500.
All rates are before the $ 7,500 federal EV tax credit.
Mach-E comes in rear or four-wheel drive. Ford says the extended-range RWD version of the Mach-E will be capable of 300 miles of range, while the GT model with select options will be able to hit a mid-three second 0-60 mph sprint. Not bad at all.
The range is estimated at 270 miles for First Edition, about 230 for GT and Select, and then 300 for the others. Not bad either. The upper trims seem to be just AWD.
Interestingly, the site says that the car will be able to reach 47 miles in just 10 minutes of charging. It's still not as convenient as filling up with gasoline, but considering that most EV charges are done at home overnight, it's a great time for a top-up to get you the last few miles home if you need it.
Also on the inside: two large digital displays, especially a Tesla tablet screen on center console.
There is a wider range of vehicles than we expected, but it all seems like the right price for the job. Maybe this Mustang-inspired electric SUV won't be the end of the world.
