Ford is engaged on a number of thrilling, track-ready evolutions of the brand new Mustang, however it’s not forgetting concerning the electrical Mustang Mach-E crossover. The model unveiled a rally-inspired prototype known as Mustang Mach-E Rally to preview an upcoming addition to its portfolio.
The racing connection is obscure, the Mustang Mach-E has by no means competed in a world rally occasion, however the Rally prototype actually appears to be like the half. Ford added a GT trim-like entrance bumper with a crimson tow hook poking via it, fog lights built-in into the plastic panel positioned in the midst of the entrance finish, wheel arch flares and a rally-inspired roof-mounted spoiler. White wheels wrapped by trail-terrain tires add a crowning glory to the look, although there may very well be extra to it because the idea that Ford unveiled is roofed in camouflage.
It appears to be like just like the Rally is customary Mach-E fare inside. And, we’ll must be affected person to search out out what the specs sheet appears to be like like. One thins is for certain: the idea is electrical. You did not look forward to finding a 5.0-liter V8 underneath the hood, did you? We’re guessing energy comes from a dual-motor drivetrain for through-the-road all-wheel-drive however that is pure hypothesis. In its quickest configuration, the prevailing Mach-E places as much as 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque underneath the driving force’s proper foot. That is sufficient for a 3.8-second dash from 0-60 mph.
Ford offered the Mustang Mach-E Rally on the 2023 Goodwood Pageant of Velocity, the place Estonian rally driver (and 2019 World Rally Championship winner) Ott Tänak drove it up the well-known hill, however the crossover is not merely a prototype. Ford notes that the mannequin can be accessible in the USA within the fall of 2023 and in Europe a bit of later, although it hasn’t detailed the adjustments it is going to make to the idea. Pricing hasn’t been introduced, both, however we’re anticipating it is going to price greater than the range-topping GT, which begins at about $63,000.
