As per the reports of Reuters, Ford Motor Co would be using the Mustang name, earlier reserved for a muscle car, for an electric sport utility vehicle—SUV that the consumers in Europe, the United States and Canada could start ordering on the 17th of November.
Ford has given confirmation that the new electric SUV would be called the Mustang Mach-E before of a debut event, that was scheduled for Los Angeles on Sunday. Till present, the Mustang name has been used only on a line of sporty cars linked with the Detroit’s 1960s muscles car period.
The SUV would be among the more than dozen all-electric automobiles that the company intends to introduce by 2022 with an investment of $11.5 billion as it drifts away from the conventional gas-powered automobiles.
Back in the month of April, the no.2 US carmaker made an investment of $500 million in the electric manufacturer Rivian and said that it planned to use the Michigan start-up’s platform for building a new Ford-branded electric automobile.
The Mustang Mach-E could be reserved on the website of Ford in the US, Europe and Canada by paying a refundable deposit of $500, as informed by the company.
Ford would be announcing the reservation dates for China later.
