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

Recommended Posts

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?

Mach-E or Model Y? Model Y gets my vote, especially with the Y Performance range of 280mi to the Mach-E GT of 235.

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.

Sounds like the reveal is going to be at 6pm PST tonight...odd, I guess during Sunday Night Football?  I won't be back home until at least 11 EST so I'll miss it live...oh well.

      NEURON EV

      CES 2020 has been a busy place this year with more auto companies showing of prototypes and finally production ready auto's than ever before. We have seen so much including the latest in super dense solid state batteries for the EVs to motorcycles and bikes.
      This year we now get to see the latest competition to Tesla and Rivian in a well funded California / China based EV auto company called NEURON EV. This company has a swiss army knife of a truck/suv auto as well as a Semi truck that they say is going into production in 2020.

      The truck which is seen here in Silver has a sister truck that was running around the streets which is the following Black T-One.

      All the details you could ever want can be found here on this truck: https://www.neuronev.co/new-products/t-one-p-gyrwr
      The cool thing about this modular truck is that is can be more than a truck, a tractor, a van. there are no limits to how one can configure up this beast of an EV.

      The seat options are an interesting take as you can go like how Tesla showed their Semi with a center driving position as a base 3 seat configuration of 3 captain chairs, or a single drivers captain chair and a bench seat behind for 4 people and go from there to cover a wide range of colors, materials, etc. in customizing your auto. 
      While this company is looking at this modular truck and semi for the US, in china they will have many more auto options including their V.E.G.A. or Versatile Electric Grand Automobile.

      The company has great plans and while they have only two models for the US market, China will get many more that includes a medium duty truck, a bus, a MAP or Multipurpose Autonomous Platform focused on shipping yards, a HUB or autonomous transportation auto, in addition to the car, semi and truck.
      NEURON EV has not released any details about their hp / torque other than to say class leading at this time. Two wheel drive and All Wheel Drive will be the choices folks will have and talk of a base 300 mile range battery pack. More details are to come later this year.
      First Press release of 2020 can be found here:

      Rumor has it that Ford is working on a V8 powered version of their Ranger Raptor currently sold in overseas markets. Only available in other parts of the world, the current Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel that produces 210 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft of torque, but a report in Wheels magazine says that Ford Australia is working with an external engineering company to swap the 2.0 diesel for a 5.0-liter V8 from the Mustang GT.  The odd thing about this is that the Ranger Raptor 5.0 would be still built with the 2.0-liter diesel under the hood and then later converted to V8 gasoline power.
      Expect power to be about the same as it makes in the Australian spec Mustang GT, a healthy 455 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque. 
      If it all comes together, the Ranger Raptor 5.0 is expected to go on sale in Australia next year, sold by Ford dealers and backed by the full 5-year warranty. For now, the Ranger Raptor remains forbidden fruit to the U.S. no matter what engine is under the hood.

Only available in other parts of the world, the current Ranger Raptor is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel that produces 210 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft of torque, but a report in Wheels magazine says that Ford Australia is working with an external engineering company to swap the 2.0 diesel for a 5.0-liter V8 from the Mustang GT.  The odd thing about this is that the Ranger Raptor 5.0 would be still built with the 2.0-liter diesel under the hood and then later converted to V8 gasoline power.
      Expect power to be about the same as it makes in the Australian spec Mustang GT, a healthy 455 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque. 
      If it all comes together, the Ranger Raptor 5.0 is expected to go on sale in Australia next year, sold by Ford dealers and backed by the full 5-year warranty. For now, the Ranger Raptor remains forbidden fruit to the U.S. no matter what engine is under the hood.

      The Volkswagen brand is on track to introduce 34 models globally in 2020.  While some, like the ID.3, will be new to the portfolio, others are variants of familiar faces with many of those being electrified. Much stricter emissions rules come into effect in Europe starting January 1st and will force every company that sells on the continent to rethink their lineups.
      For Volkswagen, that means that most of their internal combustion powered vehicles will gain an available hybrid powertrain. Volkswagen says they will be introducing hybrid versions from the Golf to the Tiguan, to the Touareg. There will also be a number of cars coming that aren't hybrids or EVs. The next generation Golf is coming to Europe in 2020 with GTI, GTD, R, and Wagon variants to follow, though not all will make it to the U.S.. The Atlas will receive a refresh and the Atlas Cross Sport goes into production soon. Over in Europe, VW will be launching the T-Roc Cabriolet, the Arteon Shooting Brake, and Tiguan R.  Plus there will be other announcements coming for the brand.  With that in mind, these 34 vehicles are just for the VW brand and don't count what Audi, SEAT, Skoda, are up to. So there is likely to be even more in the pipeline.
      This whole push is to help get the Volkswagen brand to a 4 percent to 5 percent operating profit for 2020.
