Springtime Snowstorm? Electric Mustang Mach-E’s All-Wheel Drive Ready for Mother Nature’s Surprises


DEARBORN, Mich., May 08, 2020 – The Northeast United States is bracing for record cold and accumulating snow, according to forecasts, a surprise given we’re almost two months into spring. Fortunately, the newest Mustang – the all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV – will soon arrive to tackle the most challenging road conditions with available all-wheel drive, a key feature that is helping to attract new customers to the brand.

Mustang Mach-E’s available all-wheel-drive system is proving popular with customers across the U.S., particularly in northern and Midwestern states – and almost all reservations in New England include all-wheel drive.

Ford has tested its all-electric Mustang Mach-E in extremely cold and hazardous conditions at Smithers Winter Test Center, an 800-acre world-class facility in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Here, Ford development engineers have worked to evaluate performance over the most challenging roads and in the harshest of elements.

“Mach-E’s available all-wheel drive is designed to help instill driver confidence in all conditions,” said Robert Iorio, Ford Mustang Mach-E vehicle engineering manager. “The team has integrated e-drive propulsion, all-wheel-drive calibration and brake control in a way that optimizes fine motor skills to enable an immediate response in low-traction conditions and ensure the performance expected from Mustang – even in the snow.”

Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,895, not including an available $7,500 federal tax incentive; with it, the entry-level price is even more attractive for an all-electric SUV. Reserve the Mustang Mach-E here.
