Rumor Claims All-Electric Ford Mustang Will Arrive By End Of Decade: Video

By now, it seems inevitable that an all-electric Ford Mustang will be built one day. After all, as automakers continue to push to add EVs to their respective lineups, U.S. states and countries around the world continue to pledge to eliminate the sale of new ICE-powered vehicles by 2035. And since the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has already become (technically) the first all-electric Ford Mustang, how much longer will it be before the pony car follows suit?

Now, a new rumor has emerged from Autoline stating that not only will the all-electric Ford Mustang enter production in December of 2028, but that it will also mark the end of the ICE-powered pony car altogether. That means the 2029 model year Mustang will be a purely electric product and will represent the next-gen model, replacing the current S550. Autoline also says it will be produced at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant, where the current-gen Mustang is built.

While an all-electric Mustang seems inevitable, this report contradicts what we’ve been hearing for some time now. As we’ve previously reported, the 2023 Ford Mustang is expected to receive a complete overhaul and represent the seventh-generation of the iconic Mustang nameplate.

That model, expected to be called the S650, would enter production in 2022 and ride on the Ford CD6 platform that also underpins the Ford Explorer and Lincoln Aviator, and will be available in a hybrid and/or all-wheel-drive configuration. As we reported last August, the new S650 Mustang is also expected to have an eight-year life cycle, which means it would run through the 2029 model year.

Thus, at this point, it’s unclear if this rumor might actually turn out to be true. We don’t doubt that an all-electric Mustang will arrive at some point in the foreseeable future – the only real question is when that might happen, and if it will truly mark the end of the ICE-powered pony car altogether.

We’ll have more on the rumored electric Mustang very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Mustang news and 24/7 Ford news coverage.

    I wonder if my 2019 Bullitt will go up in value? But seriously, perhaps it’s time. I saw that Israel has developed some new battery tech that allows seriously short charging times. Once we have that, and it’s affordable, and a very robust dependable charging network… then I’m in for an electric DD. But I’m still keeping the Bullitt for fun. Cue Rush singing Red Barchetta…

    Nobody is talking about how to charge all these EV’s. There are not enough charging stations even now. How do people charge in a multi-family complex? The electrical grid won’t handle it anyway.
    California is already having brown outs due to their conversion to renewable energy. It just won’t handle the extra load.

    I suppose this would be the best way for Ford to kill off the brand. As for rising gas prices ? We are afloat in oil. Another large reserve was just discovered off S America that is larger than the Permian in N American.

    Actually, this entire issue would be solved if my ex wife would quit eating cheese and bean burritos at Taco Bell. Nuff said ………. lol

    All I know is that Europe is going in that direction, too, and talk about a place where people live close together in smaller residences. If they really want to do electric, there is a way to do it: maybe collective garages with charging stations? It’s just a matter of how we spend our personal and tax money.

    Well, it’s happening and sooner than later for some. And there are some shortcomings with the all electric platform, like the recent discovery by the folks at Car & Driver with their long term test vehicle the Tesla 3. They had discovered a 7% loss in charging capacity upon reaching the 24,000 mile mark. What does this mean for long term owners? Easy math can calculate this out…and that’s assuming that it’s a linear loss.

    And a big issue, what happens to all those expensive battery packs that deteriorate over time? Keep and run your vehicle well over 100,000 miles…then what? The used car market also starts to become an interesting, new arena. How about a plan for recycling all those rare earth minerals? Could be a booming new industry segment if someone has the enthusiasm to tackle it.

    Having allowed for slow battery technology development in this equation, design and manufacturing of an electric vehicle platform requires far fewer components than an ICE unit, which should translate into smaller supply chain sourcing and coordination, as well as reduced time to marketplace and associated resources. This is primarily what is attractive to manufactures. There are other benefits like reducing fleet emissions, and or eliminating them completely at some point in the future. In theory, less regular maintenance for the owner/operator.

    They’re here to stay, and will become the dominant power source moving forward. It devoid of issues? Certainly not. But do the benefits when compared to ICE…and I mean to all parties involved…outweigh the negatives…most surely.

    @ Ford Owner …………. What leads you to believe @fpvfan has a mind? For all we know, he could be the “tinman” in drag ………… roflmao !


    While all the talk is going EV….in politics… the end….the customer is king…..and local….car buyers …me included like freedom..meaning in car talk….not resticted on how many miles i can go…which is basically what the current EV tech is now….250 350 mile between charges..and big wait until between charges ..will crap average car buy style .now there is a niche that for daily driving we usualy dont drive that much…with the ice engine you have options…mabe the EV technology will soon do that..Seen that Fords EV Transit van only offers 127 miles on a charge…..GM…announcement is like moving cart before the horse….if the US…doesnt do a complete ban of Gasoline engines…then Ford or Toyota..Kia FCA, keep offering a choice between the two…GM will have lost market share..,and moved to fast…I have no problem with EVs..big picture….forced on us …with todays tech…not so much…imho
