FORD MUSTANG MACH E SPECS LEAKED

Foxnews.com kicks us off: “A fumble at Ford may have spoiled its electric pony party. The reservation website for the battery-powered Mustang Mach-E apparently went live for a brief period on Thursday night, revealing pricing and performance details ahead of its scheduled debut in Los Angeles on Nov. 17. The pages were spotted by a member of the Mach E Forum fansite, who screengrabbed and posted them before they were disabled. Ford has not commented on the mishap, but has also not denied the authenticity of the information, which may not represent the final specifications.”

 

From Autoblog: “A tinted panoramic roof fills the space overhead, over an interior playing up the minimalist possibilities. A traditional steering wheel gets controls on the spokes, and behind it, a 10.2-inch digital cluster. To the right of the steering wheel, what we’ll guess is the start/stop button rests on the instrument panel. In the center of the dash resides a 15.5-inch, vertically-oriented rectangular touchscreen with some kind of dial-looking appendage at the bottom. For cargo, there’s 29 cubic feet behind the second row, 59.6 cu-ft behind the first row — and a front trunk with 4.8 cubic feet.”

 

Motor Authority on the Mustang heritage: “The exterior of the Mach-E looks every bit inspired by the Mustang badge planted on the front. The LED head and taillights are nearly cribbed from the Mustang but feature their own distinct design elements. The roofline is fast and it will be interesting to find out how much head room is in the rear seat. A glass roof is available, but it’s yet to be seen if it’ll be standard.”

 

Electrek breaks down the variants:

Models/Pricing (pre-incentive prices, all models get $7,500 US tax credit):

First Edition: $59,900 MSRP (EPA est. 270 miles, mid 5-second, AWD, 19″ wheels)

Select: $43,895 MSRP (EPA est. 230 miles, mid 5-second, AWD or RWD, 18″ wheels)

Premium: $50,600 MSRP (EPA est. 300 miles, mid 5-second, AWD or RWD, 19″ wheels)

California Route 1: $52,400 (EPA est. 300 miles, mid 6-second, AWD, 18″ wheels)

GT: $60,500 (EPA est. 235 miles, mid 3-second, AWD, 20″ wheels

 

All cars will come standard with Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 2.0

 

According to Roadshow by CNET: “Even with all that range, charging is always a concern, and Ford’s leak says that the Mach-E will recoup 47 miles of range in 10 minutes when hooked up to a 150-kW DC fast charger. Things really start to get interesting once you see the inside of the Mach-E thanks to its vast, vertically-oriented touchscreen that definitely reminds us of the one in the Tesla Model S, and that’s not a bad vehicle to be compared to.”

 

Tech Crunch likes the styling: “It looks like a panorama roof is an option, and that hatchback will probably please a lot of small SUV fans. There’s also something funky going on with the door handles – the front ones appear very small and near the base of the door windows, while I’m not sure how exactly it works on the rear passenger doors based on these photos. There’s also a panoramic sunroof at least as an option, and you can see the interior looks pretty blatantly Tesla -inspired, with a large vertical touchscreen taking up most of the center of the dash – albeit with something that looks like a large physical dial right at the base, instead of going for fully touch-only input. A second digital display appears to replace the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.”

 

From Autocar: “Ford also announced today that it will begin taking deposits for the Mustang Mach-E in the US and Europe immediately after it’s revealed, with the first wave of buyers being offered the option of a highly specced First Edition model. However, full pricing hasn’t yet been announced, while Chinese buyers won’t be able to put down a deposit until a later date. The new car is the first Ford designed as an electric car from the ground up, with a bespoke new platform enabling both rear and four-wheel drive. It will crown the brand’s wide-reaching electrification plan under which European customers will be offered a hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fully electric version of every new model launched. “

 

And back to Autoblog: “Standard features for all models include LED headlights and taillights, the side-door E-Latch and using a smartphone as a key, wireless phone charging, memory seats, navigation, Ford CoPilot 360 and 360 Assist 2.0, and an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty on the battery. The entry-level Select trim can’t be ordered with the panoramic roof, and makes tech like memory seats, power folding mirrors, and foot-activated tailgate optional. The panoramic roof is an option on the performance-focused GT, as are Active Park Assist and the 360-degree camera that come standard on every other trim but Select”

 

Finally we’re short of battery info but Electrek does the maths: “Finally, though shots don’t tell us the electric car’s battery capacity, they do tell us the approximate charge rate. Ford claims the car will be able to charge 47 miles in 10 minutes on a 150 kW charger. If the car has capacity of ~80 kWh for the 300-mile version, this suggests a DC charge speed of closer to ~80kW, which is a little on the low side compared to the competition. The Model Y will likely be capable of 250 kW charge rates on Tesla’s new V3 supercharger.”
