Ford came up with a name for the Mustang electric crossover

Ford has filed an application with the European Union Intellectual Property Office for the registration of the Mustang Mach-E trademark. According to preliminary information, such a name can get the concept of an electric crossover in the style of the coupe Mustang or its product version.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E battery crossover is also known under the internal designation CX430. It will be created on the modular platform C2, which is the basis of the fourth-generation Focus and the new Kuga off-road vehicle. Externally, the electric car will resemble a Mustang: if not entirely, then at least in detail.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is expected to premiere this year. Sales of the crossover will begin in the first half of 2020. Earlier, Ford confirmed that the model will be able to travel up to 600 kilometers through the WLTP cycle without recharging.

Initially, the company planned to use the name Mach 1 for the crossover, but later, due to the negative reaction of the fans, it decided to abandon this name.

In the past, the designation Mach 1 was used for special versions of the Mustang. Such fastbacks differed by upgraded suspension, functional air intake on the hood and more powerful engines – from 5.8-liter Windsor V8 to 7.0-liter Cobra Jet.
