Default Bill Ford Doubles Down on Mustang-Inspired EV Being Fun to Drive

We have known for some time that Ford Motor Company is working on an all-electric crossover that will draw its design inspiration from the mighty Mustang, but company head Bill Ford recently reminded us this long-awaited EV will also offer impressive performance.





Since the first time that a Ford Motor Company executive referenced the all-electric crossover with Mustang design cues, it has been understood that this large EV would offer Mustang-like performance as well. There have been rumors that the Mustang-inspired electric crossover will be designed to compete with the Tesla Model X, which is one of the quickest SUVs sold in the world, and recent comments by Bill Ford support those rumors.

While speaking at the Crain's Detroit Business Newsmaker of the Year conference, Bill Ford stated that the Mustang-inspired electric crossover – which has been rumored to sport the Mach E name – is “going to go like hell”. That phrase carries deep meaning within FoMoCo, as back in the 1960s, Henry Ford II told the Ford drivers racing at LeMans against the Ferrari teams to “go like hell”. They did, too, winning every year from 1966 through 1969.
