Looks good! And quite classy interiors. Except for the large head unit. These XL size digital LED items are not to my taste somehow. But loved the car.

Perhaps they should have used a different name. An electric Mustang. Follow that with an electric Camaro. And so on. A Mustang going off a traffic signal with no exhaust note. That will be doomsday for petrol heads. Signs are those with affection towards polluting engines are ageing & headed towards retirement. This is how previous generations would have felt when their black and white CRT TVs got replaced overnight by 55" FHD Plasma screens.

CBU? Why even bother, if they are thinking of CBU route? If Hyundai can bring Kona EV through CKD route and price comparably to other countries why not Ford? It shows if they really want to succeed in the Indian market or not?

I don't know about finances behind CKD route, can somebody share some light on how much a CKD assembly setup costs? If Hyundai can do it why not Ford?

AFAIK Mustang which is on sale in India today is a CBU. I presume the same business logic is applicable to Mustang Mach-E if it is brought here.

On finances - I don't think without understanding the vehicle architecture one can put an approximate figure to CKD assembly setup.

On Hyundai Kona - It costs around USD 20k onwards, whereas Mustang Mach E starts at USD 43K. So, you can except a similar price difference in India as well.

At that price, Mustang Mach E would a Halo product for FORD in India like the Mustang and not a Mass product - With such low volumes, CKD makes sense IMO.

Hyundai Kona in USA comes in multiple variants (petrol and electric). 20K USD price is for petrol model. EV variant price starts at $36,500 but its only available with bigger battery capacity (64 kWh). In India, Kona is avialble with 39.2 kWh battery. So, it won't be directly comparable. But Hyundai launched 2020 Ioniq which has ~38 kWh battery for around $30,000.

I hope they sell enough to be made available as a CKD. They beat Tesla to the punch and I think we really should appreciate them on that!

With the Mercedes EQC, Audi E-tron and Porsche Taycan coming to India soon, the luxury segment will have a lot of options for those who want to go green

Its not a Tesla charging station. Its an Electrify America charging station, a subsidiary of VW group being setup as part of its efforts to offset emissions in VW emissions scandal. Electrify America is open to all EVs not just VW.

I am a huge Mustang fan. Mind you, not all models. There have been some real dogs. Unfortunately, this is one of them. Just because the rear lights have a slight resemblance to a rear light on a former Mustang, does not make it a Mustang.

No, this might be a fine car, but it is certainly no Mustang in my thinking.

It is completely interchangeable with any other red E chunky car out there on the market.

Such as shame, Ford should be doing better with the Mustang badge. It used to stand for something really special. Now it is just another run of the mill Electric chunky contraption.

New Ford Mustang Mach-E EV makes European debut in London.
Quote:
At launch the range-topping version will produce 332bhp, with a full GT model making around 459bhp due at a later date.
Quote:
The model will initially be launched with two battery pack sizes and three power outputs. The entry-level version will feature a single motor driving the rear wheels, with either a 75kWh battery and 254bhp motor or a 99kWh battery and 285bhp motor. Both produce 307lb ft, with a claimed 0-62mph time of under eight seconds and WLTP range of around 280 and 370 miles respectively.

The twin-motor all-wheel-drive version is offered with a 75kWh battery and 254bhp, or 99kWh and 332bhp. Both versions provide 429lb ft and a sub-seven-second 0-62mph time, with estimated ranges of 260 and 335 miles. Charging is available through an AC home charger or via DC fast chargers at up to 150kW.

Regarding the pricing: from the Ford Finland site, the 75kWh 258HP AWD version is priced at about 57800 and the 98kWh 337HP AWD (First Edition) is priced at about 71700. Claimed range is 420km and 540km respectively. By comparison, the Tesla Model Y Long Range (505km) is priced at 64400 and the Performance Edition (480km range) is priced at 72400.

However, the customer deliveries for the Ford are expected to start only towards the end of 2020, while the Tesla site says that production for Model Y is expected to start in early 2021.
