Ford pins electric future on new Mustang Mach-E

Fifty-five years after Ford Motor Co. introduced the first-ever Mustang, the automaker plans to again leverage that nameplate to propel itself into the future — but this pony car will be an electric SUV.

Officially named the Mustang Mach-E, Ford’s first-ever fully electric SUV debuts in Los Angeles on Sunday night nearly two years after the Dearborn automaker first teased the “new all-electric performance SUV” at the 2018 Detroit auto show. The vehicle is expected to be a four-door crossover that borrows design cues from Ford’s most iconic model.
