Re: Ford Releases First Image Of Mustang-Inspired Mach 1 Electric SUV

Here's a recent article about this. Apparently a Reddit user claims to be one of the engineers and said with certainty that there will not be a 4-door Mustang but rather the Mach-E (as he said it will be called) will be the "Mustang-inspired" electric crossover. Something Ford already said numerous times. However, the Reddit profile has been deleted. But still rather interested to read this.

The photo link posted above by Andrew L is interesting too. A user on BON posted the same-above image along with what was said to be a cover of Car & Driver magazine. However, another user on BON responded that the photo came from a British magazine that had their facts wrong regarding the Mach E. They had 'Mustang-based' rather than 'inspired' and came up with the rather photoshopped renderings.

I'm thinking we may see reveal sometime by Los Angeles Auto Show later November if not sooner like the New York Auto Show in just a few days. I'm rather excited for it as long as it does not carry the Mustang name which isn't as it seems.

I thought that was going to be on D6. They're saying it'll be on it's own dedicated platform which is good news of true.

It's coming for 2021 and it could look something like this.

Ford just announced its new Escape for 2020, but the launch event in Amsterdam contained additional information that most decidedly has our interest. The Blue Oval started touting an all-electric Mustang-based crossover vehicle over a year ago, but nestled in the Escape’s launch were some fresh details on the project. They were so interesting that we took it upon ourselves to commission the rendering you see above. This interpretation is based on recent information, rumors, and tips from people who’ve allegedly seen the real design.

The shareholders will grow restless without Ford turning around their earnings issues.

…"New all-electric utility to be revealed this year and go on sale in 2020." So, it will be revealed this year, and go on sales next year. It will be revealed sometime in the next 11 months and go on sales some time in the 12 months to follow. It could debut in LA and not go one sale until end of 2020. Best case, it's on sales in 12mo. Worth case, it is essentially 2 years. I'm betting on it being closer to the latter, 18-20 months.

With the key to profitable automobile production being volume, especially with EVs, and the lower riding sedan/Sportback offering all the benefits of an EV, it's no wonder that demand is higher for the sedan, with higher production capacity. Model S and Model 3 sedan are prime examples which Porsche and Audi are focused on competing with.

Which makes one wonder why Ford is still trying focused on a lower volume SUV EV from it's consumer brand, when the volume that can offer profitability is with lower riding sedans/fastback EVs. But the answer may be that Ford does not have the battery capacity to meet demand with a higher volume EV, so selecting a lower volume, more expensive SUV, reduces demand, and reduces pressure on Ford to build out battery capacity to meet that demand. It may also be because consumers have already been trained to pay $6k to $8k more for an suv that costs the manufacturer no more to produce than the sedan, and maybe some of the battery costs can be absorbed in the suv premium at low volume.

But we will see one year when ford actually has a live concept to show with specifications and then eventually pricing.

You will know what is Ford planning with the EV in less than a year. Jim Farley say that the Mach E will come this year as a 2020 MY .
