Wait, a Mustang without an engine? Yep! Here's the Mustang Mach-E, Ford's first all electric car. It's an SUV/crossover that aims to attract new buyers by combining electric power and its green benefits with the spirit of the Mustang, the iconic muscle car. Which isn't so green! I noticed in the Ford press release that they mention "sounds tuned for an authentic all-electric experience."
Ford say that the Mach-E has three drive modes:" Whisper, Engage and Unbridled." Each apparently offers different driving dynamics alongside a distinct sensory experience. When it comes to experiencing a cars performance, sound is one of the most noticable senses! It will be very interesting to hear how the Ford engineers have recomposed the V8 sound for the electric era!
In a few weeks time I've got the opportunity to record a 5.0L V8 Convertible Mustang, many thanks to Ford UK Press, stay tuned for a full Youtube video and keep an eye on my Instagram for behind the scenes content.
