We are waiting for the confrontation of Ford against Tesla.

Ford held a presentation last night on one of this year's most anticipated electric vehicles. According to the assurances of the automaker, the Mustang Mach-E is not just another electric crossover on the market, but also the heir to the cult Mustang family, which is actually evidenced by the name of the car and the nameplate.

Mustang is one of the most famous car lines in the world. Over the long history, more than 10 million Mustangs have been sold.

Why did Ford decide to use the name of traditional muscle cars for a completely different type of car? It is possible to ensure a more confident start of sales of new items, because the buyer is offered no other model like the Mustang. On the other hand, Volkswagen did not prevent the creation of a completely new line of ID electric cars.

But back to the Mustang Mach-E. The appearance of the electric crossover is quite aggressive, as befits the Mustang family. A large front overhang, angular front and rear optics, a black roof trim that goes into the spoiler and creates a coupe-like profile effect. Looking at the car, you also pay attention to the lack of door handles – instead of them, buttons on the roof racks and small hooks for the front doors are provided. You can unlock the doors using your smartphone or key fob. The length of the electric car is 4712 mm, the wheelbase is 2984 mm, the height is 1597 mm.

The Mustang Mach-E's interior has lost most of its analog controls. Instead, there is a 15.5 ″ vertical display of the multimedia system. And the dashboard is a 10.2 ″ horizontal screen. I note the substantially redesigned interface of the proprietary Sync 4 platform. The system looks strict, but at the same time stylish. There is wireless support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, several options for voice assistants (Ford's proprietary, Google Assistant and Siri), a dark theme.

On the central screen, I also highlight the analog twist, which so far is only responsible for playing music. Among other things – wireless charging for smartphones, USB-A and USB-C ports (for front and rear passengers), customizable interior lighting, Bang & Olufsen acoustics, panoramic roof.

The luggage compartment is 402 liters. But more interesting is the front compartment of 100 liters. It is completely plastic and can be washed even from a hose, thanks to the presence of a drainage hole at the bottom. Therefore, it is possible to transport some dirty things in it, or, for example, to fill in ice and put soft drinks.

Go to technical specifications. Ford Mustang Mach-E will be offered with two battery options: Standard range (75.7 kWh) and Extended range (98.8 kWh). In addition, customers will be able to choose models with one engine (rear-wheel drive) or with two power plants (all-wheel drive). Engine power – from 258 hp (standard version) up to 465 hp (GT version). The power reserve for various configurations varies from 337 km to 482 km. Charging with a maximum power of 150 kW (115 kW in the basic versions) is supported.
