There Might Be A Small Ford Mustang Mach-E And It Might Be VW-Powered

Using their partnership with VW, Ford is planning on a smaller MEB-based Ford Mustang Mach-E.

  • Ford and Volkswagen announced a partnership earlier in 2019 – this would be one of the joint projects.
  • The “baby” Ford Mach-E would be based on VW’s MEB electric vehicle platform.
  • The Ford Mustang Mach-E continues to cause a stir. Ford’s not done yet…

This is the news story all of Mustang-dom did not want to read. The stir and outraged caused by the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV launched in November is still hot on people’s minds but clearly Ford’s not done milking the Mustang name yet.

Earlier in 2019, Ford and Volkswagen announced a partnership that, in short, would entitle VW to access truck stuff from Ford and, in return, provide Ford with electric technologies including the German company’s highly-touted EV platform.

In a story by Auto Express, Ford of Europe’s Chief Designer Murat Gueler said: “The Mustang influence wasn’t considered until an earlier direction with the car wasn’t really working. Once we introduced Mustang as inspiration, it came together quickly. We’re really excited by what this brings to the electric car, and yes we have already talked about expansion, to some sort of family.”

Now, before everyone continues the freak-out, Ford is earmarking European markets as 60% of the Mach-E’s production will be reserved for the Old Continent. Should a small Mach-E be built with VW tools, may not be slated for North America, at least not at first, much like the VW ID.3.
