    Ford Mustang Mach-E Leaks Out Ahead of LA Auto Show

      ...You're not supposed to see this yet, but....

    Leaks of privileged information happen.  In this case, Ford pushed these images and pages to their consumer website in a way which was easy for the folks at MachEForum to find. 

    Here are the basics, the best of each spec, the 2021 Ford Mach-E will have up to 300 miles of driving range, run 0-60 in mid-three second range, and have optional all-wheel drive.  You're going to prioritize those specs though because you won't be able to get them all in the same car.

    All models of Mach-E will be able to recharge 47 miles in 10 minute of DC fast charging in a 150-kw charger

    The base model is called Select and starts at $43,895. It is powered by a 255 horsepower, 306 lb.-ft of torque motor in the rear.  You can opt for all-wheel drive which increases torque to 429lb.ft. This model gets an EPA estimated range of 230 miles and a 0 to 60 sprint of mid 5-seconds. If you qualify for the full $7,500 federal tax credit, the price can be as low as $36,395. It's equipped with 18-inch wheels

    Next up is the Premium trim, starting at $50,600. This comes with 19-inch wheels and again in RWD or AWD configurations. EPA estimated range is 300 miles on the RWD model and 0 to 6- remains mid 5-seconds. 

    There will be a trim called California Route 1 which is an extended range rear-wheel drive model. It has an EPA range of 300 miles and a mid 6-second range sitting on 18-inch wheels.

    Then there is the top of the line GT, starting at $60,500. EPA range is estimated at 235 miles and a mid 3-second range. It comes standard with all-wheel drive. 

    For early adopters, there is a Mach-E First Edition. It offers three exterior colors, including and exclusive "Grabber Blue Metallic", interior contrast stitching, First Edition scuff plates, brushed aluminum pedals, and red brake calipers. This model seems to be a happy medium on range and performance with a 270 mile EPA estimated range, mid 5-second 0-60, AWD, and 19-inch wheels. 

    Inside the Mach-E is a large Telsa-like center screen though with a single physical dial at the bottom. A simple dash and slim gauge cluster sit behind a 3-spoke wheel badged with the Mustang logo. 

    Ford will officially share more information on Sunday night, and the specs listed above are subject to change. We'll keep you updated as more information comes out. In the meantime, scroll down to see all of the information grabbed in the screenshots.

    Can not say I'm a big fan of the side profile, windows make me think of the previous gen ~2014 Tucson.  Hopefully looks nicer in person/in better images.

    300 mile estimate is a little weak, IMO.

    The Euro estimate is like 370 miles. I figured it would be 340-350 miles.

    300 miles, AWD, mid 5 second car, that would be a pretty sweet daily.

    I see some Model X in the greenhouse...but smaller side windows.   I wonder how the door handles work..this still looks very 'concept car' in the pics..

    Edit: these pics came up today...strange door handles.  Why do car makers think they have to reinvent door handles just because it's an EV?  Why not normal door handles?

    Saw this somewhere else...

    They should make a bigger version called the Grand Mach-E, but it would mostly sell in Florida.

    The WLTP estimate is always more ambitious than the EPA estimate.  But the Bolt can beat the EPA estimate easily on a nice spring day.

    Such a weird car, with a blasphemous name.  Just a disaster in the making.  Comical!

    Initial, cropped images looks interesting, but I have a feeling real world shots will make it look bloated. Esp if I can't get the Mustang car out of my mind's eye.
    The tax credit possibility remains a 'ghost carrot' that -unless you're a tax idiot- you'd have to intentionally over-withdraw a full fiscal year ahead of your purchase in order to get. Most people won't see anywhere near $7500- might as well forget that 'discount'.

    It looks good from the front, the back end looks a bit odd though.  I think the pricing seems pretty strong for this being an SUV and the range and performance offered.  It is similar to Model 3 pricing, but in SUV form, so it could sell well.

    I dont understand by what you mean.  Are there obstacles to get the EV tax rebate?  And why do these obstacles exist?

    Same price range as the Explorer also.  I assume this is a two row?

    It’s not a rebate. It’s a tax credit. In the fiscal year you buy the EV, IF you owe MORE than $7500 on your federal income tax, you can take that reduction against what you owe. Only in the single designated year. If you owe the Gov’t $800, that’s your EV credit; $800. If the Gov’t owes you money back, your EV credit is $0.

    And most people do not intentionally set their witholdings up so the Gov’t pockets $7500+ from their biweekly checks. That’s like $290/check.

    So when your Model 3’s sticker says $54,321, you are signing loan paperwork to pay $54,321 (down payment, etc, aside).

    This is why I feel Tesla and any others are being grotesquely / borderline criminally misleading by saying that $54,321 Model 3 is $46,821.

    ’Ghost carrot’.

    A Mocker-E of the Mustang name.  Perpetuated by the people who should be nurturing and protecting it.

    Ah....

    You see. I was calling it a rebate, because I really thought it was a rebate...

    Tax credit.  And whatever you owe the government. THAT is your "rebate" come tax time. If you owe the government $800, and you bought an EV during that fiscal year, you dont pay the Feds a dime BECAUSE you bought an EV?  THAT is how it works, right?  

    Each person's credit is different and not applicable right away either. Very misleading indeed. 

    Thank-you.

      Genesis has been having a hard time keeping the lid on the GV80 leaks lately. A day after someone leaked grainy pictures of the GV80 on Instagram, someone sent 4 pictures of the interior and exterior over to Car and Driver who published them for all the world to see.
      The GV80 is Genesis' first entry into the hot SUV market and enters the segment currently occupied by the Mercedes Benz GLE, the Audi Q7, BMW X5, and Lincoln Aviator. It rides on the same rear wheel drive platform as the next generation G80 sedan due out next year. The main powerplant will be a 3.3-liter turbocharged V6 which in the G80 currently makes 365 horsepower, but could go up in this application. There's also the possibility of a turbo 4-cylinder or a naturally aspirated V6 as a base engine. 
      It's said to have driver assistance systems similar to Telsa autopilot which would be a first for Genesis. 
      For now, most of this is rumor and speculation as we wait for the official reveal next month. The GV80 is expected to go on sale Summer of 2020.

      Mazda has an internal debate going on as to whether to electrify or not the next generation MX-5 Miata.  One of the major concerns is keeping the car light weight. The current car in base form tips the scales at just 2,345 lbs. and is incredibly well balanced, so adding batteries and electric motors could upset that balance. 
      Electric motors can be compact and powerful though, adding torque in places where gasoline motors are weak.  In order to provide that power, they require dense and heavy battery packs. Still, if power can be added to the 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 181 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, it might make up for the weight increase in a straight line.
      Why do this? It's not like the MX-5 is a huge seller. It doesn't contribute to Mazda's overall volume in such a way that it should require efficiency tuning to meet fuel economy standards. Just 8,971 Miatas passed through Mazda dealerships in 2019.  The answer is in image. Mazda wants to maintain the appearance of being eco-friendly. They feel that the preference of people who enjoy driving sports cars could be changing, so Mazda needs to think about the direction society is going. The next Mazda MX-5 isn't due until 2022 or so, so Mazda still has some time to decide.
      Mazda is committed to the original formula that made the Miata an icon though, and any electrification will have to happen with the thought of maintaining lightness as a priority.

      The first product to come from Ford's investment into startup automaker Rivian will likely be a Lincoln SUV due to arrive sometime in 2022.  The vehicle will be all-wheel drive and compete against Rivian's own R1S which is priced at $72,500.  The models will share Rivian's skateboard platform, a design that combines the motors, batteries, controls and suspension into a single unit that the body can be built around.  
      The Rivian R1S is a three-row EV crossover with a range of up to 410 miles and will be built in Normal Illinois at a former Mitsubishi plant. It is expected to go into production sometime in 2021.
      There will also be a compact Lincoln EV crossover coming for 2021 that could be built on the same platform that the Ford Mustang Mach-E rides on. 
      EV sales have been tepid so far in the US, but Lincoln is banking on the EVs to be bigger sellers in the Chinese market.
