Ford has unveiled its new Mustang Mach-E electric SUV for the first time in Europe at an event in London.
The all-new model, which becomes Ford’s first standalone EV, was unveiled to much excitement at last year’s Detroit motor show. It’s the first SUV to wear a ‘Mustang’ badge and promises an electric range of up to 370 miles, which will be the longest of any EV on sale today.
It’s been showcased in London’s Marble Arch today as part of a ‘Go Electric’ roadshow, and will go on to travel the UK on a 200-day tour, stopping at 50 locations across Britain. Ford says the tour aims to “de-mystify electrification and inspire consumers who often remain confused about the different types of electrified powertrains available and their benefits”.
As part of the event start, Ford has also made several further pledges as part of an ambitious plan to have 14 electrified models on sale by the end of 2020 – increasing this to 18 by the close of 2021.See available Ford deals
Hybrid versions of the Mondeo and Transit Custom are already available, while mild-hybrid powertrains already appear in the Puma, and will be featuring on the best-selling Fiesta and Focus range soon. Hybrid versions of the Kuga will follow later in 2020, while hybrid models of the S-Max and Galaxy MPVs are destined to arrive in 2021.
Ford has also today announcement plans to introduce 1,000 electric charging stations across Europe over the next three years, though the firm has called on authorities to continue investment in public charging infrastructure.
The Mach-E is available to pre-order now with a deposit of £1,000, with models expected to start from around £40,000.
