The Ford Mustang Mach-E will have a little brother
Last November, Ford unveiled the much-anticipated Mustang Mach-E, which is none other than an electric SUV. This vehicle, inspired by the mythical Mustang, has caused a lot of controversy among fans. And the brand doesn't want to stop there! Ford is already considering expanding its range of electric cars to attract a wider public.
The most likely vehicle proposal would be another sporty electric SUV inspired by the Mustang Mach-E's sporty styling. However, it will be more compact and therefore less expensive. To achieve this, the brand has decided to use Volkswagen's modular MEB platform, with motors that also go with this platform.
Murat Gueler, chief engineer for Ford of Europe, said in an interview with Auto Express that Ford may well use the Mustang's sporty design again for this future small electric SUV. The only difficulty comes from the MEB platform, which doesn't allow large overhangs. That's a problem when it comes to imitating the Mustang's styling.
So we don't know if the future small electric SUV will take on the Mustang's lines. If it does, the vehicle will be available with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. It will be shorter and narrower than the Mustang Mach-E. Under the hood will be motors ranging in horsepower from 150 to 300 hp. Range will be between 150 and 250 miles.
