Someone at Ford has released a bit too early.
The Ford Web site enabled skilled users to view the complete Mustang Mach-E electric website shortly before the scheduled release on Sunday. This was discovered by the enterprising people in the Mach-E forums who posted (alleged) screenshots from the page showing images of the car before its complete revelation.
Ford quickly recognized his mistake and repaired the site, but the "damage" was already done. The leaks, if correct, yielded five models and their base prices per Jalopnik:
Mach-E Select for 43,895 USD [19659005Mach-EPremiumfor$50600
Mach-E California Route 1
Mach-E First Edition for $ 59,900
Mach-E GT for $ 60,500
The compact SUV , which resembles its namesake, is offered with rear- or four-wheel drive 300 miles range. Some models, such as First Edition, are reportedly able to go from zero to 60 in less than five seconds.
All in all, it's pretty competitive with the Tesla Model Y in terms of price and features, according to Electrek comparisons. Tesla's equivalent has more cargo space, but Ford generally wins with an acceleration from 0 to 60.
The existence of the Mustang Mach-E is no secret as Ford has recently campaigned overtly for the unveiling of the car. Idris Elba will, in a sense, be involved in the unveiling of the Sunday night, for all fans of The Wire or Luther out there.
Attaching the Mustang name to Ford's big, new electric car could give it some coolness and give it a competitive edge. The federal tax credit of up to $ 7,500 for EV purchases is also a tempting proposition for enthusiasts.
