It’s been 55 years since the iconic pony car first rolled out of Ford Motor Co's assembly line. Ford has broken this long-standing tradition and added an SUV to the Mustang lineup. Not just any SUV, but an all-electric one. The Mustang Mach-E was leaked prior to its unveiling, revealing all the information that we needed to know. The all-electric SUV rival for the Tesla Model Y has a maximum range of 482km and is available in five versions -- Select, California Route 1, Premium, First Edition, and GT.  Carrying the 'Stang name, it is no slouch either with maximum targeted output figures of 459PS/830Nm (GT variant). The Mustang Mach-E marks Ford’s foray into the mainstream EV market while it also sets the tone for the future of mobility, something which we’ll get to see more of at the upcoming 2019 LA Auto Show.

The Mustang  Mach-E is available in two battery options: standard-range (75.7kWh lithium-ion battery) and extended-range (98.8kWh battery) starting from 337km extending all the way till 482km. Ford is offering the Mach-E with the option of a rear wheel drive and all wheel drive setup, with obviously the RWD options capable of providing more driving range. The above said battery and drive options will be available across all five variants. Here’s a table to make your life easier: 

Version Battery Drive Range Maximum Output
Select Standard Range RWD/AWD 337Km -370km 255PS/565Nm
Premium Standard /Extended range RWD/AWD 337km - 482km 332PS/565Nm

Out of these five variants, the Premium and First Edition will be available from 2020 onwards, while the rest of them will be reserved for a later period in time. The range-topping GT, which does the 0-100kmph run in sub-3 seconds, will only be available by 2021. Detailed information on different versions and their targeted output and acceleration figures can be found here. 

Ford has also setup FordPass Charging Network with more than 12,500 charging stations, including DC fast chargers. The Mustang Mach-E can cover 60km with 10 minutes of fast charging. The battery pack can charge up from 10 per cent to 80 per cent in approximately 38 minutes, says Ford.  

The Mustang Mach-E looks more like an SUV coupe with its sloping roofline and notchback-like design. Family looks are overtly evident right from the headlights, grille to the rear haunches and the taillamps. Some standout features include a panoramic fixed glass roof, a Bang&Olufsen sound system, Ford’s next-gen SYNC infotainment system, and Co-Pilot 360 2.0 driver assistance technology. The Mach-E’s cabin follows a minimalistic approach with a15.5-inch touchscreen being the main attraction. The instrument cluster is also an all-digital unit measuring 10.2 inches. 

The Blue Oval has priced the Mustang Mach-E from USD 40,000 (Rs 28.68 lakh) to around USD 60,000 (Rs 43 lakh). Interested buyers can reserve the SUV by shelling out USD 500 (Rs 35,000). But, you’ll definitely have to wait till 2021 for the GT, California Route 1 and the Select versions to arrive.
