Home / Social media / News / The popular Ford Mustang Mach-E will soon be available as a Rally SUV.


The Ford Mustang is the world’s best-selling sportscar thanks to making it a global model back in 2015. This meant the car was officially available in both right and left-hand drive so that it could conform to the road rules of any country on the planet. This made Mustang fans very happy. Since 2015 every new iteration of the beloved rear-wheel drive modern muscle car has been better than the one before (which is the point of bringing out new models) and the blue oval fanatics have accepted every new car with wide open arms. Well, almost every new car. When Ford announced an all-electric Mustang, purists got their knickers in a bunch because the car is meant to feature a dead dinosaur-eating V8 powerplant. While we need to accept that electric power is the way of the future, and many gasoline fans are slowly coming to terms with this, when we heard about the Mustang Mach-e we only wanted to know what kind of performance was offered up. The biggest problem with the Mach-E is the looks. If the men in white coats at Ford fitted a pair of electric motors to the Mustang we all love, it would have been widely accepted, but instead, the car that was badged as a Mustang looks more like an SUV with styling borrowed from Tesla. It’s rather miff-looking. Be that as it may, Ford has produced over 150 000th Mustang Mach-E cars since production started around two years ago. Plans are for that number to grow EV sales to a whopping 600 000 annually by late 2023 and over 2 000 000 by 2026. This latest incarnation of the Mustang Mach-E may help that figure along because now for the first time in the history of the nameplate, one has been designed to be able to be competent away from smooth roads and tarmac.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is a concept SUV for now, but we’re pretty sure that there will be some demand for the thing, even if it looks like a regular Mustang that’s been beaten up and is swollen all over. The electric car has been tailored to be able to go off-road, to a degree, which opens up the market to a whole load of new prospective buyers around the world. This is the first time in the 60-year history of the Mustang. The concept was just debuted at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed where it was on display and also entered the same race at the hands of Ott Tänak, the  current driver of the M-Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 car in the World Rally Championship. “Mustang Mach-E took the freedom and fun of Mustang and made it free from emissions. Now with Mustang Mach-E Rally, we’re providing our customers the freedom to venture off the asphalt and beyond the beaten path,” said Darren Palmer, Vice President, Electric Vehicle Programs, Ford Model E. “When we put the pony on this Mustang, we knew we’d have sceptics. What we didn’t quite know then was just how popular this car would become. I love seeing Mustang Mach-E vehicles on the road and talking to customers, and I am seeing more and more of them.” So far it looks like the utilitarian Mach-E SUV has the same electric power as the regular street version, an all-electric drivetrain rated to produce 358 kW with 860 Nm of torque, and it has a range of 378 km.

Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off a bunch of the details about the new offroad capable, all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally. This is the first time in the long history of the iconic nameplate that a version of the Mustang can drive in more places than smooth tarmac to make better use of the powerful all-electric setup. Sure it's not a Mustang like we all know and love, but it is a pretty decent car in its own right even if we think it should have been given a different name - click through and let us know if you agree: No, FOR REAL: Ford Just Revealed An Off-Road Mustang!
