Here’s Our First Tease Of The Ford Mach 1
Back in March Ford laid out its plans for an electric future, which included almost everything in its lineup getting some form of electrification. Good news? There will be a new Mach 1. Bad news? It won’t be a kickass Mustang. Instead it will be some sort of Mustang-based utility, according to Darren Palmer, Ford Team Edison Global Product Development director. Ford Team Edison is the company’s new unit that focuses exclusively on electrified vehicles for both Ford and Lincoln.
Fast-forward to the Mach 1 teaser above where we can see the telltale Mustang taillights, but a much more upright rear end. There were rumors floating around that the new Mach 1 could also be a tall-ish wagon like the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. Now that’s something we could get behind.
We know electrification is in the cards, but to what extent we’re still guessing. Hopefully we’re looking at a system that makes the vehicle faster and more fun, but more likely it’ll be an efficiency play. Either way, we won’t have long to wait.
