Ford Mustang Mach-E Renderings Explore An Electric Rally SUV
Love it or hate it, the Ford Mustang Mach-E will soon be on the road. Some see the model as a bastardization of the Mustang’s name and history, while others see it as the next step in the brand’s history. Anyway, it’s there for now, but that hasn’t stopped some from experimenting with its design. The new renderings of Abimelec Design on Facebook take on the appearance of the Mach-E crossover and make it much more robust with a ton of settings.
Subtle changes transform the Mach-E from an elegant crossover like a car into a raised and robust all-terrain vehicle. The fenders are wider and the wheel arches larger, which now houses larger all-terrain tires. The large tires seem to significantly increase the ground clearance of the Mach-E while the roof spoiler is also larger. However, what really completes the crossover look is the front rally light bar associated with the yellow headlights. The trio of rally lights on the edge of the hood is a bit much, although the other changes look really good on the vehicle.
The order books are now open for the EV, which is available with funding for 84 months. Those who have reserved them can transform them into real orders. Ford also announced that the Mach-E line will get more power, up to 14 horsepower (10 kilowatts) and 11 lb-ft (14 Newton meters) of torque depending on the version. The full-range AWD model offers 346 hp (258 kW) and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm) of torque.
Although it carries the Mustang badge, it is still a crossover and the robust crossovers can be cool. The first Mach-E examples won’t start arriving with customers until the end of the year, but it will be interesting to see the aftermarket goodies that appear afterwards. The Mustang is a brand that excels with tuners and stores, and although the Mach-E lacks a tunable engine, that doesn’t mean there are no other avenues for fun.
