Ford tests first Ford electric crossover

October 16, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

A preview of the all-electric Ford crossover, which was created based on the iconic muscle car Mustang, may take place next month. On the company page in social. A video appeared on the network showing a prototype of the new product.

A couple of minutes ago, the automaker’s press service published a short video from the prototype’s new tests. We have doubts as to whether this is a new electric SUV, but the short video is still worth a look.

Back in August of this year, we published “spy” photos from the tests of the American novelty, but unfortunately, at that time the car was heavily disguised. We could not determine the exact shape and proportions of the Mustang-style crossover body.

Comparing the prototype two months ago with the test car from this new video, you can find some similarities and some significant differences.

 For example, they have the same front bumpers. On the other hand, the prototype of the crossover from the video looks a little more, but do not forget that automakers like to mask their new products not only with camouflage film, but also with false panels, which just create the effect of an enlarged body.

 It is widely believed that next month Ford will show a preliminary version of the model. There were rumors that we could see a concept or even a production version of the crossover at the Los Angeles Auto Show this year. Ford has not yet commented on this information.

  The start of sales of an all-electric crossover, created based on the Mustang sports model, is scheduled for next year, that is, the novelty will be positioned as an SUV 2021 model year. In fact, this means that deliveries will begin no earlier than the second half of 2020.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the updated Ford Transit received a new engine, as well as Wi-Fi, a stove and a refrigerator. The American automaker presented the new version of its popular van at the Motorhome and Caravan exhibition in Birmingham. The novelty is called Transit Custom Nugget 2020.
