Ford is about to launch its new electric car, Mustang Mach-E and we’re positive that it will be a great addition to cars for sale in Dubai. It is fast, sporty and stylish. And why wouldn’t it be? It’s a Mustang after all! However, an SUV isn’t something we would normally associate with the Mustang tag but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.
Ford Mustang Mach-E made its first appearance at the 2019 LA Motor Show. To fully live up to its name, the car is also given the shape of a Mustang. Instead of the traditional grille, this Mustang has a body-color piece on the front. Its headlight and tail lamps have been completely redesigned. It also has a wide rear windscreen and a long bonnet, very distinct from other EVs which are aero egg-shaped. Jason Castriota, the designer of the famous Ferrari P4/5 by Pininfarina one-off and the SSC Tuatara hypercar, designed this model too.
The Mach-E is approximately as big as the BMW X3, with X5-alike cabin space. However, compared with other EVs, it is almost the size of the Audi e-Tron.
Battery and Range
It has a 75 kWh battery base version for a range of 280 miles. The upgrade contains a 99 kWh battery pack so it can cover an impressive 270 miles. Even the slowest of this version takes it up to 0 – 62 mph in less than 8.0 seconds, which is quite impressive. It essentially comes in RWD whereas AWD is available too. Additionally, it has upgraded, flexible suspensions and brakes which rides on 20-inch wheels and an aero kit.
Interior and Tech
The Mach-E also has firm sports seats to keep you in utmost comfort. Since it is a sports car, it not only comes with a 15.5-inch display screen, but also a separate instrument screen for the driver. Since it is incisive and easy to use, you will not have to dive into any technicalities. This car comes with CarPlay and Android Auto as well.
It has a built-in traffic-aware navigation which uses different algorithms to warn you about any incoming traffic ahead and informs you of the shortest route for your final destination. Moreover, it is also aware of the charging stations nearby.
For rapid DC charging, it has a liquid-cooled battery which charges up to 150 kW for the bigger pack. This approximately adds up to six miles per minute at the start before the charging starts diminishing. For the smaller pack, it takes around 45 minutes to charge from 10 to 80 percent, and it takes 11 kW on AC charging.
Interested buyers can place their orders directly on the web, but deliveries do not start until the end of 2020. The price range starts at £40,000. If you are looking for the top version, you can get an AWD, a bigger battery as well as more equipment all at a price of about £58,000.
