When the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E was revealed in late 2019 it was the first time a Mustang-branded vehicle had received four doors. Now it’s moving even further away from its pony car roots.
At this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, which just concluded, the Blue Oval revealed a new, rally-inspired production variant of the Mustang Mach-E.
Dubbed the Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally, this variant will be available first in the US and Europe.
“We’re looking forward to Mach-E joining the Ford Australia line-up later this year, however there’s no news to share on the Rally right now,” said a Ford Australia spokesperson.
Ford hasn’t detailed much about the Mustang Mach-E Rally just yet, but some obvious exterior changes from the regular models include lifted suspension, fog lights integrated into the faux grille, a front tow hook, white wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich all-terrain tyres, extended wheel arches, and a racier rear wing.
The car shown at this Goodwood Festival of Speed had a wild-looking black-and-white Mach-E Rally livery that won’t make it to the production version as it’s “for promotional purposes only”.
It’s unclear what will power the Mustang Mach-E Rally, but given its high-performance intentions it could pack the flagship GT’s powertrain.
The Mustang Mach-E GT is powered by a dual-motor all-wheel drivetrain producing 358kW of power and 860Nm of torque.
Ford recently confirmed the Tesla Model Y-rivalling Mustang Mach-E for an Australian launch, with deliveries set to start later this year.
Ford Australia has confirmed there will be three variants in the local Mustang Mach-E range at launch.
The range opens at $79,990 before on-roads for the entry-level Select, and extends to $108,990 before on-roads for the flagship GT.
There are two battery options available locally, with a 71kWh pack in the entry-level Select and a larger 91kWh pack in the Premium and GT variants.
WLTP claimed range differs between models, with the entry-level Select offering 470km, the Premium offering up to 600km, and the GT offers up to 490km.
