Ford Mustang Mach-E trademarked in India

When Ford announced its sudden exit from the Indian automotive manufacturing scene in September 2021, it had announced its intent to maintain presence through imported offerings, like the Mustang Mach-e electric SUV. Three years later, it seems Ford is evaluating a possible return as the Mustang Mach-e has recently been trademarked in India.

What is the Mustang Mach-e?

Ford entered the EV space in the USA in 2020 by applying its most iconic moniker, the Mustang, to its newly developed electric crossover SUV, and called it the Mustang Mach-e. At the time it was positioned as a potential rival to the Tesla Model Y in the brand’s home country. Since then, the Mach-e has been exported to other countries as well, including right-hand-drive markets like the UK. It continues to be the flagship development vehicle for Ford EVs with various performance-oriented one-offs as well.

Battery, Range And Performance

The Mustang Mach-e is available with two battery pack options and with the choice of rear-wheel-drive or dual-motor all-wheel-drive. Their specifications are as follows:

Battery size (usable)

72kWh

It could be priced around Rs 70 lakh (ex-showroom) as a potential rival to the Volvo C40 Recharge and Kia EV6.
