Ford Mustang Mach-E GT will receive a twin-engine layout in China, which allows it to accelerate to 100 km / h in 3 seconds. For comparison, the American equivalent of 480 hp. and 860 Nm accelerates to a hundred in 3.5 seconds and its EPA range is 378 km with an 88 kWh battery. According to local standards, the most economical version of the Mustang Mach-E built in China will have an estimated autonomy of over 600 km.

The Mach-E will feature a suite of driver assistance systems, a Level 2+ semi-autonomous driving feature that will allow hands-free driving in certain scenarios, wireless updates, SYNC + infotainment and more. Ford claims it will be the first automaker in China to offer cellular vehicle communication (C-V2X) technology in a production vehicle.
