Ford today revealed the all-new Mustang Mach-E to the European public for the first time as the company launched a new ‘Go Electric’ experience that will help consumers across the UK and Europe make an informed transition to an electrified future.
The all-electric Mustang Mach-E with its targeted pure-electric driving range of more than 370 miles under WLTP regulations1 is destined to banish range anxiety to the history books and spearheads a rapidly expanding Ford electrified vehicle range.
Ford customers in Europe will be able to choose from 14 electrified vehicles by the end of this year, growing to 18 by the end of 2021. The company is promising to electrify all future passenger vehicles coming to market. Globally, Ford is investing $11 billion dollars ($8.5 billion pounds) to electrify its vehicles.
Ford’s electrified vehicles utilise a range of powertrain technologies including 48-volt mild hybrid, full hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric – delivering innovative solutions to suit every lifestyle. Ford estimates that fuel savings for customers delivered by electrified variants of Ford’s popular Fiesta, Focus and Kuga models alone could reach more than £28 million per year.2
All-electric and plug-in hybrid Ford vehicles will be backed by an industry-leading Ford Charging Solutions ecosystem that will deliver seamless, integrated access to charging at home and across Europe. Mustang Mach-E customers placing a reservation in 2020 will receive a free one‑year subscription to the FordPass app, which enables users to effortlessly utilise FordPass Charging Network locations and pay for charging services from a single account.3
Ford also today announced plans to introduce 1,000 charging stations at Ford facilities across Europe during the next three years to make charging simple and convenient for employees. Stuart Rowley, president, Ford of Europe, called on local authorities to support the push for electrification with faster expansion of public charging infrastructures.
“Ford is at the forefront of real change, and we’re committed to providing all of our customers with the broadest choice of electrification options,” said Rowley. “Infrastructure is critical to helping consumers have the confidence to go electric, but we can’t do it on our own. Accelerated investment by all the key stakeholders across the U.K. and Europe is more important than ever.”
