Ford in Norway has participated in the development of the Mustang Mach-E
Ford Motor Norway has actively participated in the development of the new all-electric SUV, which is available with an electric range of up to 600 kilometers, then with rear-wheel drive.
- Norway is the country in the world that has the most experience with electric cars. We also have demanding and changing weather and driving conditions. This has meant that Ford has requested and received advice from us internationally throughout the process of developing the new Mustang Mach-E. This is also the reason why the car is in Norway now. It also means that the Mustang Mach-E certainly delivers in relation to Norwegians' expectations of an electric car, says Per Gunnar Berg.
Unique driving mode and improved functionality throughout the life of the car
Mustang Mach-E is available with two different battery sizes of 75 kWt and 99 kWt. Both are available with rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive driven by two engines that distribute the forces independently between the front and rear axles.
It has three unique driving modes: quiet, active and untamed . The driving dynamics and the car's chassis are fine - tuned to the desired driving style. Both the steering, the lights in the passenger compartment, the sound and the fully digital screens change character according to which driving mode you choose.
With the all-electric SUV, you also get a car that, thanks to continuous wireless OTA updates, can be constantly developed. During the life of the car, Ford can with this system, for example, deliver better performance to the car or come with completely new functionality.
The "Game changer" has already been pre-ordered by thousands of Norwegians
Several thousand Norwegians have already pre-ordered the Mustang Mach-E, and during September it will be open for final orders. The first cars are expected to be delivered to Norway early next year, with four-wheel drive available from the start of production.
- With its unique combination of long range, available four-wheel drive, ample space, sporty driving characteristics, extensive new technology and competitive prices, the Mustang Mach-E has already become a "game changer". It will be even clearer when the first customer cars arrive in Norway in the new year, says CEO of Ford Motor Norway, Per Gunnar Berg.
