Ford Mustang-Inspired Crossover Spied With Production-Intent Body Work

A year ago, we brought you spy shots of the Ford Mach-E – the Ford Mustang-inspired crossover SUV. But back then, the early prototype was wearing the body of the outgoing-generation Ford Escape. Luckily, we just managed to catch up to a more developed prototype with production-intent body work, giving us our first look at the upcoming EV.

All that heavy camo seems to be hiding a very powerful, upright nose and a fastback body style. Just as well, the Mach E is said to be “Mustang-inspired” in its design.

The overall size, meanwhile, appears to be roughly similar to the all-new Ford Escape, with compact-car like dimensions. Don’t let the camo fool you – there’s definitely a seat of rear doors under there.

Giving us more proof that we’re looking at a battery electric vehicle is the lack of exhaust pipes at the rear, either in visible form or as tucked-under units. Sources have confirmed to Ford Authority that what we’re seeing here is a Ford model, so don’t be fooled by the camo running across the rear end, imitating the signature rear lighting elements of FoMoCo luxury brand, Lincoln. That said, there will be a Lincoln derivative of this model, but this isn’t it.

The Ford Mustang-inspired Mach E crossover is expected to start around $40,000 and “will go like hell“, according to Ford Motor Company Chairman, Bill Ford.

The Mach E is expected to debut in concept form some time in 2019 before going on sale in late 2020 calendar year as a 2021 model year vehicle. It will be Ford’s first pure-electric vehicle since the Focus EV.

    • It will use the same calipers as the hybrid and PHEV Fusion Energi. Almost all the speed reduction will come from regeneration, so brake pads will last a long time, probably the life of the EV.

    • You don’t have to cover it. Ford did because it is still under review and the final body is special, so no other car maker can see it before it is officially launched,, especially the imports who love to copy domestic designs and make cheap imitations. The best example is the Kia Forte which is a bad copy of the award winning Ford Fusion.
