Have You Ever Heard About An Electric Mustang?
For decades, the Ford Mustang has been one of the most popular muscle cars on earth. The de-facto pony car’s handsome looks made it an icon in the car world the day it launched in 1964. Similar to the looks, the powerful engines that come under the hood of these mean machines have also received an iconic status.
Each generation of the Mustang so far has exclusively been powered by gasoline engines. But that all changed in 2021. Have you ever heard about an electric Mustang? If not, strap in. Today, we will introduce you to the all-electric Mustang Mach-E.
An Electric Revolution
Day by day, electric cars are taking over the automotive world. What was once seen as a niche way to travel is now being accepted by many car enthusiasts as the future of vehicles. Following Tesla’s footsteps, many “mainstream” car manufacturers have started launching electric vehicles.
Ford has taken a different approach when hopping on to the electric car bandwagon. Instead of naming their all-new electric car something futuristic, they have settled on the legendary Mustang name. The “Mach-E” name calls back to the powerful “Mach-1” version of the Mustang that launched in the 1970s.
An Electric Pony
Unlike the sports cars it borrows its name from, the Mach-E is a proper family crossover. Ford took the covers off this vehicle in 2019, and it first went on sale for the 2021 model year.
And now, the Mach-E has been upgraded in many areas as we head to 2023. Starting at around $48,000, it is priced similarly to its pony-car counterpart. While the Mustang coupe gives drivers a thrilling driving experience, the Mach-E offers hair-raising acceleration thanks to its electrical heart on top of added practicality.
Tesla Beating Performance
Ford offers several trim levels of the Mach-E, powered by one of two available motors. The fastest of the lot is the GT Performance model. It makes 480 horsepower from its 91kWh battery and four electric motors, along with 634 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to its all-wheel-drive system, the Mach-E can bolt to 60 mph in a mere 3.5 seconds, making it quicker than a Tesla Model Y. So if you want an electric crossover to transport your family in a hurry, now you know what car to get.
How Far Can It Go?
The range is another crucial factor to be considered when it comes to electric cars. Luckily for hopeful buyers, the Mach-E has an estimated range between 224 to 312 miles. Sadly, the Mach-E cannot use Tesla’s Supercharger network for a quick top-up. Yet, it comes with a fast charging capability that can get you up and running quickly.
So, here it is – the Electric Mustang. Who knows, one day you might even spot one of these beauties out on the stress of Ghana. For more content created just for petrolheads, head to our website and follow us on social media.
