The network has details about the new Ford Mustang. The official presentation of the next-generation sports coupe is unlikely to happen until 2022.

Ford literally shocked the entire automotive community when it introduced its all-electric Mustang Mach-E crossover at the end of last year – so the legendary Mustang name is no longer exclusive to the two-door sports coupe! It turns out that the “blue oval” can plan further to experiment with the famous nickname – this is the kind of information that was reported today, April 20, by journalists from the foreign publication Autocar.

 The British edition reports that the next generation Mustang may receive a hybrid version. The car will be shown either in 2021 or in 2022

 The automaker’s initial plan, announced in 2017, included a Mustang hybrid performance start in 2020, but ultimately the debut of an electrified sports car was delayed for the next-generation model. The Autocar report cites Ford’s patent application filed with the US Patent Office in 2017, where the manufacturer refers to the “twin-engine drive system for a hybrid car.” The technical drawings of this application are reported to show a V8 motor driving the rear wheels and two electric motors that will drive the front wheels. Thus, an all-wheel drive system will be implemented.
