The upcoming 2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 is a famous performance car that brings literally everything. However, Mach1 will now come as a high-riding sedan-style crossover and it will compete in the SUV segment. On top of that, the new 2020 Mustang Mach1 will be all-electric. We had an opportunity to see a teaser of this performance crossover, but most of the categories are still very unclear.
Mach1 started its path in 1969 and this name was reborn at the beginning of the 2000s. If you are trying to realize why this model looks familiar to you, you might watch James Bond movie or even John Wick.
The teaser video we mention is showing us a Ford Explorer and Ford Mustang pulling into a garage. The video name was “The inspiration behind Ford’s New Battery Electric Performance SUV”. Okay, the logical outcome should be a vehicle like Explorer but with the styling cues of a Mustang. However, Explorer is just too big and heavy we cannot associate it with the performance cars.
Whatsoever, the 2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 will be more like a four-door hatchback that sits higher like a crossover. Taller model with a higher ground clearance that will compete in the market with other crossovers and SUVs. We can expect a familiar Ford’s front end with center section sitting taller. Plenty of sportiness, aerodynamics and very modern lines are what we expect from the 2020 Mach1. A five-door model will hit the markets in the near future for sure.
2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 Interior
The biggest mystery about the new 2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 is its interior. There are numerous possibilities. For an instance, the dashboard could be the same as on the current Mustang model. On the other hand, Mach1 could get its unique dash. Moreover, this is an all-electric model, so there won’t be a gear shifter. That means the center console will hugely depart from the previous models.
A new software will carry the name of this model and it will offer unique graphics and interface. Supportive seats and flat-bottom steering wheel are standard. The rear could get a bench seat, after all, this is a performance SUV, so the possibilities are numerous. Leather and Alcantara upholstery are standard too, and generally, premium materials are what everyone expects.
What we know for sure is that the 2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 will ride on a new platform. You can forget about the famous S650 Mustang platform, this is an SUV that we are speaking about. With that in mind, Mach1 will probably get its own architecture. Performance-wise, the 2020 Mustang Mach1 should bring something new to the all-electric SUV market.
Several options are on the cards and generally, electric SUVs are delivering great horses and torque figures. The base model will for sure get up to 400 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. The higher trims should gain more power and bring even better performances.
2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 Driving Range
A lithium-ion battery will largely determine the power and driving range. The 2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 comes with a pair of electric motors and the all-wheel-drive system will be in the offer. The charging will be easy, as Ford plans to offer different sort of adapters.
Thanks to that, you can charge your Mach1 at home or at every public charging station. The range will be over 250 miles per charge and Blue Oval carmaker will try to deliver over 300 miles of driving range.
2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 Price and Release Date
The price of the forthcoming 2020 Ford Mustang Mach1 will be around $60,000. This performance-oriented all-electric SUV will go on sale in the first half of 2020.
