Ford and Volkswagen are working on a mini Mustang Mach-E for 2023
It's said to be VW ID.3 size
Ford has recently announced some big news, saying they will electrify their entire passenger range of cars in Europe by 2030. With this comes one very big step - electrifying its more popular models.
The two main cars Ford will need to address are the Fiesta and Focus as they are most popular throughout Europe. This is where the idea for the mini Mustang Mach-E came in which will be a similar size to the VW ID.3.
It will be a completely separate vehicle from the Ford Mustang Mach-E we all know today, but will still incorporate styling elements from it. Unfortunately, this will be bad news for many, but a crossover body style has already been decided on due to the ever-growing popularity and demand for them.
The strange thing is, the mini Mustang Mach-E won't be a Ford underneath, but a Volkswagen instead. This is because last year, Ford and Volkswagen made a non-equity-sharing agreement that includes working together on commercial vans, a mid-size truck for VW with Ranger underpinnings, and a new Ford EV riding on VW's MEB modular architecture, and allowing Ford to use the same platform as the ID.3 and ID.4. for its latest car - the mini Mustang Mach-E.
This is why the new mini-version of the Mach-E will be ID.3-sized which is around 168-inches long. So, think of it as a crossover Fiesta/Focus with batteries from the ID.3 which will either a 58-kWh or 77-kWh unit.
It is expected to have a range of between 250 and 350 miles and obviously a name other than the 'Mini Mustang Mach-E'. Prices are expected to be between €30,000 and €40,000 euros and will likely only be solf in Europe.
