Ford is set to expand its vehicle lineup in South Africa with the introduction of the Mustang Mach-E, an all-electric SUV bearing the illustrious nameplate. As part of Ford’s 100-year celebration in the country, nine new vehicles are slated for launch in the next 18 months, and the Mustang Mach-E is a prominent inclusion.
Designed as the first production Ford developed exclusively for pure-electric, zero-emission driving, the Mustang Mach-E carries the iconic Mustang DNA with its recognizable long, aggressive bonnet, rear haunch design, and distinctive tri-bar taillamps. The vehicle aims to embody the enduring qualities of the original Mustang, representing freedom, progress, fast performance, and a touch of rebellion.
Scheduled for release in South Africa in 2025, the global Mustang Mach-E range is available in Select, Premium, and GT specifications. The GT variant, propelled by an all-wheel-drive, dual-motor, battery-electric powertrain, accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 3,73 seconds. This model features exclusive GT MagneRide adaptive suspension, a high-performance Brembo braking system.
The Mustang Mach-E is not just about performance, it also incorporates advanced safety features as standard. Autonomous emergency braking with car-to-car, vulnerable road user, junction assist, and back-over functionality are included. Additionally, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, emergency lane keeping, and an advanced speed assistance system contribute to the vehicle’s safety profile.
Globally acclaimed for its electric SUV lineup, the introduction of the Mustang Mach-E to the South African market provides enthusiasts with more options in the growing electric vehicle segment. The inclusion of a performance-oriented electric SUV aligns with Ford’s commitment to evolving with the times and reimagining the Mustang legacy for a powerful electric future.
With its sleek design and cutting-edge technology, the Mustang Mach-E aims to meet the evolving needs of customers while delivering a distinct electric driving experience.
