At the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed, Ford revealed a new electric crossover that combines the power and performance of the Mustang Mach-E with the ruggedness and versatility of a rally car. The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is a special-edition model that pays tribute to Ford’s history and future in rally racing.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally has a distinctive design that sets it apart from the regular Mach-E models. It has a new front bumper with extra lights, a rear wing, a rear diffuser, and a colorful paint scheme that resembles the iconic Ford Escort RS Cosworth. It also has higher ground clearance, off-road suspension, and tires that can handle any terrain.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is expected to be faster and more powerful than the existing GT and GT Performance models of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, which have up to 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque. Ford has not disclosed the exact numbers of the Rally yet, but it claims that it will offer a true rally experience with high-speed stages.
The Mustang Mach-E Rally first appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, a prestigious event showcasing the latest in automotive innovation. The vehicle was driven by Ott Tänak, a former World Rally champion and current M-Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally1 car driver. Tänak showed off the speed and agility of the Rally on the famous hill climb course and on a specially designed off-road track.
Ford says that the Mustang Mach-E Rally will be available to order in the US and Europe later this year, adding another option to the Mach-E lineup. The company hopes that the Rally will attract customers who want to have fun and freedom with an electric vehicle, while also exploring new places and adventures.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is not the only electric vehicle that Ford has brought to Goodwood this year. The company also displayed its F-150 Lightning pickup truck, E-Transit van, and Cobra Jet 1400 dragster. Ford is committed to electrifying its entire range by 2030 in Europe and by 2035 in North America.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is a new type of electric performance that blends Ford’s legacy in rally racing with its innovation in electric mobility. It is a vehicle that honors Ford's past, present, and future, as well as its passion for speed and adventure.
