Electric Ford Mustang Renderings Look Electrifying

We know that Ford has plans to electrify everything in the lineup. That could mean a full battery-electric vehicle, or it could mean a hybrid. Ford has the Ford Mustang Mach-E coming, and while that SUV is cool, many want a “real” electric Mustang. Ford showed off an electric Mustang at SEMA 2019 that got people excited.

Someone has posted up some renderings of what they believe the future electric Ford Mustang might look like. It’s a nice mashup of the current generation Ford Mustang with some of the design touches from the Mustang Mach-E. Specifically, we see the solid grille from the Mach-E in front of the Mustang. We also see a rear with no tailpipes.

We’d hope any electric Ford Mustang that launches will have the frunk that we saw in that recent patent. That patent outlined a front trunk where the grille could fold down, allowing access to storage where the engine would usually sit. Ford has taken its EV cars and aimed them at performance more than frugality so far. The assumption is that an EV Mustang will aim for performance, not frugality. We’d love to see a high-end EV that has incredible performance and at least 300 miles of driving range.

The reality is likely a shorter driving range since there will be less room in the Mustang chassis to package batteries than the Mach-E offers. Only in its highest trim will it go 300 miles. We think enthusiasts could stomach an electric Mustang as an option much better than they took the Mach-E wearing the Mustang name. Do you think an electric Mustang has a place in the line?

    Ford is going to have to educate its customers that a charger is as important as the car itself. A few years ago NEC added vehicle charging code since installing one hard wired requires a electrical permit. It’s not just plug it in the wall. There could be 120v plug in chargers but it will take a day or two for a full charge. When you spend $35k on a Mach-E plus what ever the dealer will tack on, expect to pay $1k-$2k to have a charger installed. You won’t get a full tank of gas.

      A Level 2 EVSE can charge from a 240 VAC outlet just as easy as plugging in an appliance (actually an EV is a mobile appliance!). Most present EV owners already have one setup. My own EVSE is a JuiceBox 16 kW unit I built from a kit for less than $250. It is presently set for 7.2 kW on a 40 A circuit I installed myself for a possible Chevy Bolt EV, but I can set it up on a new 75 A circuit, and change the Mach-E in a few hours at the full 16 kW. Since I never travel over 50 miles in any day, I can charge it nightly while I sleep. BTW, a good Level 2 EVSE costs less than $400. Paying $1,000 or more for the EVSE plus installation is a robbery!

    This looks more palatable as an EV w/ the Mustang name attached. And Mustang should consider making a hatchback version similar to the C7 Corvette and Jaguar F-Type as the back seats are practically unusable – though they could remain, and fold down / up as needed.

    I think they should have a foe grill in the front, she always has. It’s an iconic part of the Ford Mustang, in MustangMedic’s humble opinion.

      A can of spray paint cost less than $3 at any hardware shop.

    Not going to lie, that is probably one of the sexiest mustang designs I’ve ever seen. Only thing I’d change on the outside of this would be the roof line to give it more of the SN95/new edge roof look and add a regular grille for non-electric variants. Although this might seem strange, I would love to see a Mustang with a 2.5L I-5 Turbo Ecoboost Hybrid setup with the 10-speed hybrid trans behind it pushing 425hp/500tq. Slot that under a 3.5L V6 Ecoboost V6 Hybrid pushing 495hp/550tq and a 2.3L Ecoboost Hybrid pushing 375hp/450tq, a supercharged 5.0L pushing out 700hp and an electric mustang pushing out 900hp/1,000Tq like the sema car.

    Actually, scratch what i said above. Take that car in the picture above and make that the new body language for the Mustang on the CD6 platform, make the base a 350hp/350tq 2.3L Ecoboost, have the 5.0L GT, bring back the Mach 1 with a V8, have the GT350 and the GT500 but also, it’s time for Ford to bring back the V6 Mustang and honestly the 3.0L Twin Turbo V6 would fit right at home as the Mustang ST and Mustang RS package. With 400hp & 415lb-ft of Torque, the Mustang would actually be faster than the 11-14 Mustang GT especially with a 10-speed automatic behind it. The Mustang ST would feature basically the GT Performance pack equipment with the 3.0L V6 engine while the RS package would be something a bit more special. Packing the suspension and brakes from the GT350 along with the GT350 side skirts, GT500 rear fascia, GT350 track rear spoiler, GT PP2 front spoiler, unique wheels, Alcantara steering wheel, Recaro seats, digital dash, etc. The RS would feature a slight bump in power thanks to an upgraded intercooler, upgraded intake and exhaust system and would also feature the 7-speed DCT along with the GT500 rear axle and differential setup. The car would bump to 425hp/420tq, which would slot it below the hopefully 480hp/420tq GT and hopefully 495-500hp/445tq Mach 1. And then somewhere in there have an electric AWD mustang geared towards performance
