Ford unveils the Mustang Mach-E Rally, a sporty off-road electric SUV

Ford just announced the Mustang Mach-E Rally effectively taking the electric car technology off road. The company is aiming to build up on the success of the standard Mustang Mach E SUV.

The Shelby-esque racing stripes on the hood and a glossy black-painted steel top are standard on the Mach-E Rally. Upper and lower body moldings, a rear spoiler, front and rear motor shields, a front splitter, and rally-inspired fog lights are all available. If you get stuck in the mud, there’s a handy front-end recovery point with a hook.

Ford is aiming for 480 horsepower and a whopping 881 Nm of torque. The Rally is 20mm taller than the GT, with carefully adjusted springs, and MagneRide shocks. It has 385mm front brake rotors and red Brembo brake calipers.

The Mach-E Rally has an estimated range of 402 km and is powered by a 91kWh battery. On a DC fast charger, charging from 10% to 80% takes only 36 minutes.

The SUV includes a new “RallySport Drive Mode” which brings more aggressive damping on those unpredictable terrains. There are also new tires that are specifically built to handle sloppy roads, including snowy terrains.

Despite the off-road vibe of the Mach-E Rally, the cabin is high-tech, including Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free system and other functions such as Lane Change Assist and In-Lane Repositioning. The inside is similar to previous Mach-E variations, except the inclusion of performance seats.
