2023 Ford’s Mini Mustang Mach-E-Ford made a major announcement earlier this week, announcing that by 2030, its European businesses will no longer sell combustion-engine passenger vehicles. It’s unclear when the company’s North American division will follow suit, but it’s just a matter of time. General Motors, Jaguar, and Bentley have all lately announced that they will soon be battery-electric-only brands. The “Ford Cologne Electrification Center,” based in Germany, will be at the center of Ford of Europe’s EV push. This plant currently produces the Fiesta and Focus, as well as other foreign-only vehicles.But, when those vehicles’ leases expire, what EV will take their place? Will we have to wait another nine years for that EV? According to Auto Express, the answer will arrive in 2023 with the introduction of a “Mini Mustang Mach-E.”
2023 Ford’s Mini Mustang Mach-E Exterior & Interior
It’ll be an entirely different vehicle than the standard Ford Mustang Mach-E, but it’ll have a lot of Mustang styling. Because of the expanding popularity of the area, a crossover body type has already been chosen. But here’s the thing: underneath this little Mustang Mach-E will be a Volkswagen, not a Ford. Yes, it’s true.Last year, Ford and Volkswagen signed a non-equity deal that involves collaboration on commercial vans, a mid-size vehicle for VW based on Ranger underpinnings, and a new Ford EV based on VW’s MEB modular design, which is the same platform as the ID.3 and ID.4. The tiny Mustang Mach-E will be that EV.Because the ID.3 is nearly 168 inches long, Ford’s new electric vehicle will be a cross between the Fiesta and the Focus. The Puma, a subcompact crossover marketed only in Europe that Ford’s CEO openly stated he’d like to see sold in the United States, is roughly 165 inches long. The Mach-E is approximately 186 inches in length.
2023 Ford’s Mini Mustang Mach-E Engine
We don’t have any information yet, but the mini-Mach-E will most likely employ the same batteries and motors as its Volkswagen Group stablemates (58 or 77 kWh battery packs and power outputs between 143 and 201 bhp for standard models).
2023 Ford’s Mini Mustang Mach-E Price
It will be priced below the Mach-E at roughly 30,000 to 40,000 euros when it goes on sale – and we highly doubt it will be dubbed the Mini Mustang Mach-E. And, it will not be released in the United States.
