Design of the Ford Mustang Mach E SUV
Ford has taken the plunge by presenting its Ford Mach e Mustang, which has made fans of the American stallion jump. Sacrilege! However, time has done its work, and fans of the brand have finally gotten used to it.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E is inspired by the lines of the mythical American model, but it is distinguished by a full grille. Also, the hood is long and muscular, and the headlights give an aggressive side. At the rear, the wings are raised, and the rear lights are in three parts with a distinctive light signature.
Nowadays, cars no longer have locks. The Ford Mach E Mustang, which is pronounced “MAC i” in French, goes even further. Without door handles, they are replaced by a button on the doorpost. You just have to press this button and the car unlocks and opens a few centimeters.
The Mustang Mach-E recognizes the signal from the transponder in your pocket. The vehicle can also be accessed from your smartphone.
Inside, the Ford Mustang Mach E is equipped with a concentration of connected technologies. These are designed to give you a driving experience tailored to your needs.
For the dashboard, the Tesla inspiration is obvious. And it’s even better than on the Model 3 and Model Y. The driver has access to many settings thanks to the central 15.5-inch touch screen, oriented in portrait format.
This tablet has a thumbwheel at the bottom, which makes it easier for you to navigate through its menus. Also, the dashboard is equipped with a Bang&Olufsen sound bar.
Behind the steering wheel, there is a second rectangular screen of 10.2 inches. It is 100% digital and serves as an instrument panel, with the speedometer perfectly visible. This screen is still welcome, and prevents the driver from looking away.
The level of equipment is also on point: power, heated and ventilated seats, heated steering wheel and USB-A and USB-C outlets, both front and rear.
The Ford Mustang electric is able to accommodate up to 5 people, with its 4.71 m length for a width of 1.88 m, and a height of 1.60 m. The Ford Mach E keeps the mythical silhouette of the model. Its generous wheelbase is almost 3 meters long (2.92 m to be exact).
The SUV has two trunks. The first is in the rear. A traditional trunk of 402 liters and going up to 1 420 liters by folding the rear seat. The cargo volume increases to 519 liters in 5-seat configuration, loaded to the roof.
The second is under the front hood (frunk) with a capacity of 81 liters. Enough to accommodate a carry-on suitcase without hindrance.

Where is the Mustang Mach-E manufactured?
The Ford Mach E Mustang is produced in the Cuautitlán Izcalli assembly plant in Mexico. In June 2021, the American carmaker announced that it had produced more electric Ford Mustang Mach-E, 27,816 units, compared to 26,089 for the Ford Mustang thermal.
The Mustang Mach-E is undoubtedly a nice high-end electric car, with its qualities but also some flaws. This SUV has many engines and batteries. On the road, it is just as good in dynamic driving as in more conventional driving. The American model will have to compete with the Audi Q4 e-Tron, which has the same power but is more expensive. So, is it a favorite?
