2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Coupe Renderings Give EV Crossover More Sportiness

Sponsored Links

By now, it’s quite clear that a lot of people have a problem with the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. Not the fact that it’s an all-electric crossover, per say, but criticisms boil down to two minor details – the fact that it wears a rather iconic nameplate, and the pony badges that adorn it. Those folks have made it well known that the Mach-E is “not a Ford Mustang,” regardless of what the automaker that produces both says. But what if Ford decided to remove two doors and create a Mach-E coupe?

We decided to render a Mach-E coupe just to see what it might look like, sans rear doors, and we think it actually turned out pretty good. Sure, it likely won’t be enough to satisfy the Mustang purists, but it’s a start, anyway. Sorry, we can’t do anything about the all-electric crossover piece of the puzzle, but we’re sure someone will eventually chop one of these things up and stuff a 5.0L Coyote V8 in it.

The production Mustang Mach-E already has a very coupe-like shape, so removing the rear doors results in a rather natural look. The rear roofline has a steep slope to it, which lends itself well to these reimagined lines. In fact, the overall design is quite close to the five-door, and not a ton of modifications were needed to make a Mach-E coupe.

It’s highly unlikely that Ford would ever build a Mustang Mach-E coupe, but it’s a fun exercise regardless. But ultimately, the whole point of a crossover is its added utility. Taking two doors out of the mix wouldn’t help in that regard one bit, even if it would make the Mach-E look a little bit cooler, in our humble opinion.

  1. I really hope Ford gets on board with the EV vehicles so TESLA doesn’t corner the market,just about everyone I know is holding there money to see all the EV vehicles to buy,including my girlfriend, we know Ford is trying to unload fossil fuel vehicles, but reality is discount them huge or even scrap because again most want EVs,FORD DONT GET LEFT BEHIND
    thanks for your time

  2. FORD already have a 5 door Mustang Mach-E on the way, It wouldn’t hurt to build a 3 door model in low numbers to test the market it might grow the Brand.

  3. The 1974 Mustang was based on the Pinto, and won the Motor Trend “Car of the Year ” award. Very few Mustang fans complained. So Ford is who decide how and what to make , a Mustang, not those illogical “fans”. A real Mustang lover will take anything that Ford calls a Mustang, and I am one of those, driving a blue 1975 Mach 1 and a white 1980 “Fox”.

    And I do plan to buy a Mach-E in a few years.

  4. I’ve had (in order) a ‘74 Mustang II notchback; a ‘66 coupe; an ‘89 LX 5.0; and now a 2019 Bullitt. So I’d say I’m a real Mustang lover. And Mustangs don’t have 4 doors.
    Hey I hope the Mach E sells well.

    • I owned a 1981 Mercury Carpi 5.0 4spd, 1999 35th Silver Anniversary GT, 2012 Mustang RTR, and now 2013 BOSS 302. What’s next not going to say, but I will say this Mustang has a 4 door in its future… 2021 Mustang will have a 5 door SUV on the market it’s called Mustang MACH-E that will sale very well

  5. Morons back than, and still today, don’t consider the 74 to 78 Mustang Il a Mustang. Well, get your head out of your @$$, if it was not for the brains of Lee, the Mustang, along with all the Mustang wanna he’s, would have gone te way of the dinosaur. You see, those guys might just know more than the average Joe, to see what the consumer wants, needs, to stay afloat. The 2 sold very well, and was the right car for the times….. Well, guess what, they are being the leader again. This car is the right car, with the right name….. It’s the fricken leader, so go buy your V8 ass kicken Stang, and let the rest of us, who see there is a future that does not involve gas pumps enjoy our pony car, or in this case, Pony Suv, from the leader! PS, bet my bottom dollar a 4 door Mustang is in the works! Why not, the world needs it

    • I couldn’t have said it better Rick, My uncle owns a 78 King Cobra which is the 1st Mustang the 5.0 Liter logo was used. All Mustangs have there place in history without the sales of 74-78, there would have never been a Fox Body Pony

  6. Coupes aren’t in much demand anymore, but a limited run with a strict light weight / high performance trim and a more luxurious street performance trim, could be hot vehicle. Keep it somewhat exclusive and it’ll sell.

  7. This is somewhat of a rhetorical question…but why does it have to resemble an SUV? Why not cut to the chase and make a Mustang that looks like a Mustang and has either a hybrid or totally electric powertrain? Haven’t we been SUVed to death yet?

    • FORD is growing the Mustang name by Branding it, So your going to see a Coupe Convertible, SUV, and Sedan is part of the plan

  8. I, for one, definitely want to see the pony car evolve, although I’m not a total fan of electric only propulsion, I am a fan of the added benefits electric can have. Right now, Ford has a 3.0L Hybrid Powertrain that puts out 494hp and 630lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is featured on the CD6 chassis, which is the exact one the next generation S650 mustang is rumored to be produced on. I love mustangs, I’ve owned two of them and can’t wait to own another. Quite honestly, I’d personally be happy with a 4-door “coupe” mustang, similar to what BMW has with the 8-series gran coupe (obviously not on the same luxury/performance/price level) along with a high performance Mustang crossover similar to what BMW did with the X6M or X4M (again, not on the same luxury/performance/price level) all powered by either that 494hp 3.0L Hybrid or even the 660hp 3.5L Ecoboost V6 supercar engine or a Hybrid high performance 3.5L V6 along with an optional Hybrid V8 and the all-electric setups. This isn’t the old days where engines that had less than 8-cylinders don’t have performance anymore. I believe that V8 engines still have their place but it is time for other powertrains to shine as well. If ford can make a twin turbo hyrbid V6 powered 4-door mustang coupe or crossover sound close to what the Ford GT sounds like and have it priced reasonably, I’d buy them. Hopefully when they do it, they will have sense enough to have a lot of Ford Performance and Roush upgrades to go along with them.
