Ford Shows Off the Mustang Mach-E Rally, A Beefy Electric Pony Car
The Ford Mustang Mach-E is many things, but its crossover body has meant that it isn’t the performance stalwart that its namesake gas counterpart has been for decades. The Mach-E GT took a significant step in the right direction, and Ford recently showed off another performance variant at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Ford teased the SUV a few days ago, showing flashes of a beefy Mach-E tearing up a dirt road. Now that we have a clearer look, the Mach-E Rally sports old-school racing wheels and aggressive tires. The SUV Ford showed at the event wore heavy camouflage, but we can see a unique LED daytime running light setup, beefy cladding along the rockers and under the front bumper.
While Ford’s other wild electric creations, such as the Mach-E 1400 and the Pro Electric SuperVan, The Blue Oval has earmarked this vehicle for production. Looking at the popularity of other off-road sports cars like the wildly expensive Porsche 911 Dakar and Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato, it’s not surprising that Ford jumped into the “safari” vehicle trend.
Ford hasn’t elaborated on specs like range and horsepower, but it’s reasonable to expect output figures somewhere between the 346-horsepower California Route 1 and 480-horse Mach-E GT. We’ll probably see skid plates underneath to protect the battery and drivetrain components.
