It is happening. Ford has started spending its $11 billion
investment into electric and hybrid cars. We already have a
confirmation about the new Explorer Hybrid coming in 2020. A
year after that one, we will see the 2021 Ford Mach E, or Mach
1. Even the Blue Oval company is not sure yet. But, there is
everything you need to know about the upcoming vehicle. First,
it will take some Stang’s credits. The new SUV will be an
all-electric. Not a hybrid, not a PHEV. It will go 300 miles in
the single charge. The main rival is – Tesla. Ford’s department
that will develop the new Mach E is – Team Edison. That is the
reason why we believe the vehicle is coming as Mach E, rather
than Mach 1.
In short – the US carmaker is a leader in the market. It is
present in all the major segments in the automotive industry.
The best-selling model is the Ford F-150 truck, with nearly 1
million sold units per annum. But, Ford is losing the pace with
companies developing hybrid and electric vehicles. Toyota
already has a few interesting models. Tesla is untouchable in
the all-electric sector. But, not for too long. Ford is going
to invest over $11 billion into electrification until 2022. The
result should be 40 new hybrid and electric models.
We expected to see F-150 truck or Mustang pony car, as the
best-known nameplates. But, the 2021 Ford Mach E SUV is not a
surprise as well. This segment is growing, and the US company
has a representative in each class. The only piece of the
puzzle they miss is an electric SUV. And here it is. For a
while, we’ve been listening about it, and it is finally coming
and it has a name.
Team Edison is Formed, The First Teaser is OUT
The 2021 Ford Mach E is probably the biggest project in the
recent history of the Blue Oval company. This is the completely
new field for all workers, so the carmaker formed the special
division to develop the electric SUV. Edison will again compete
with Tesla, but two greats didn’t imagine their inventions
could cause the battle in the automotive industry. Tesla is a
step ahead, but Team Edison has the best partner it could wish
for. According to the news, Team Edison is already working.
Ford’s chiefs were talking about this department as the
cross-functional organization that will accept the new
2021 Ford Mach E News and Details
As said, the new 2021 Ford Mach E will be Mustang-based SUV.
Also, we know the company will aim for the 300 miles of range.
On the other hand, Team Edison will have a task to beat all
rivals in charging time. The new Mach E SUV will offer various
recharging methods. Even the solar panels are possible as the
additional source of energy gathering. The company states the
electric SUV is not coming to compete with the rival companies.
The Mach E is there because people need a zero-emission vehicle
with excellent performance.
2021 Ford Mach E Specs, Range
The Team Edison will probably come out soon with first details
about the vehicle. Well, plans and reality and production are
not always the same. But, according to teaser images, the 2021
Ford Mach E will carry Mustang-inspired lights. However, we
would like to know more about its performance. Rear-wheel drive
is certain, while the electric SUV is also going to use an AWD.
The vehicle is not going to be ready until Ford makes it as
reliable as petrol units. So, there is a lot of testing ahead
of Mach E electric SUV, including off-road capabilities and
hill driving. For this one, the company will bring the
whole-new liquid cooling system. The range could go up to 400
miles for the high-end models.
2021 Ford Mach E Release Details, Teaser, Price Info
The new 2021 Ford Mach E will have a debut next season. We
already had a couple of announcements, but we never got to this
promise. The SUV is not coming out before 2021, though.
Meanwhile, Team Edison will have enough time to build the
vehicle that is capable to rival Tesla’s SUVs. Also, this is
just the beginning, since Ford Plans to build more and more
electric vehicles. Eventually, by 2030, the US company will
have the majority of vehicles with some kind of an electric
The first teaser images are there, but these are showing
absolutely nothing. Just a logo. An electric logo. According to
chiefs, the 2021 Ford Mach E will be affordable. As they say –
since the SUV is built for buyers’ needs, the price should fit
this. Finally, the whole thing is still unofficial, so the
company still don’t know if the SUV should be called Mach E or
Mach 1. Either way, Ford is showing its dedication to challenge
rivals in another segment.
