MUSTANG MACH-E RTR TEASED BEFORE REVEAL TOMORROW

This Extreme EV Will Attempt To Change Perception With Aggressive Aero And Unconventional Sounds

Mustang Mach-E RTR

Suspicions have been confirmed: RTR Vehicles is cooking up a high-voltage Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV, and it’s debuting tomorrow. Owned by Formula D champion Vaughn Gittin Jr., RTR works exclusively with Ford products, and already offers multiple stage packages of the iconic Mustang muscle car, as well as the rugged Ranger and formidable F-150 pickup trucks. But this Mustang Mach-E RTR will be a huge departure, and a huge leap forward for both electric vehicles and the aftermarket alike.

In the teaser photo above, it’s clear that the Ford Mustang Mach-E RTR can abuse and obliterate its tires at will around open tarmac. But with its lowered stance, massive rear wing, and radical dive planes that have also been teased, this electric crossover looks ready to send it around a technical road course just as well. At this time, there’s no indicator how much power this thing is putting down, although a sound clip from a previous teaser video has this thing sounding like a power drill the size of a car. Because, that’s kind of what it is. Availability of this machine is also unclear.

Ford Motor Company otherwise plans on launching the Mustang Mach-E in a few short months, with orders opening up last month. At the time, over 50,000 Mach-E preorders were recorded, with customers putting down $100 to reserve a spot. Ford did a similar tactic with the Bronco 2-Door, 4-Door, and Bronco Sport. There’s also a Mach-E First Edition, which has been fully reserved.

Reaction to the Mustang Mach-E was all over the map. Several muscle car enthusiasts reviled its existence, while some figureheads such as the Mustang Club of America president endorsed it wholeheartedly. It’s too early to tell what it will do to the iconic image of the Mustang brand, but if the Mustang Mach-E RTR has anything to say about it, perceptions about speed, drama, and performance could remain intact.
