Ford has just presented its Euro Spec Mach-E in in London at the Ford ‘Go Electric’ experience. The European spec variant features suspension, steering, ESC (electronic stability control) and all-wheel drive that have been specifically tuned for Europe’s roads and driving styles. The Mach-E made its UK debut in a stunning satin blue color, but we do not yet know the color name nor its availability. We'll share that info as soon as we know.

When equipped with the extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, the Mustang Mach-E has a targeted range of up to 600 km (370+ miles) in the WLTP cycle. The battery supports fast charging, with 10 minutes of 150 kW charging at an IONITY station giving it a driving range of up to 93 km (57 miles).

Press Release:

  • All-electric Mustang Mach-E makes European public debut in London at Ford ‘Go Electric’ experience
  • ‘Go Electric’ is an interactive experience designed to help consumers make an informed choice on electrified vehicles; estimated to reach an audience of 4 million consumers during a 200-day U.K tour
  • Ford is delivering a comprehensive range of electrified vehicles with 14 on sale before the end of 2020, growing to 18 on sale before the end of 2021, and technology to suit every lifestyle. Electrification of Ford’s best-selling models could save European customers more than £28 million in fuel costs every year2
  • Ford investing in 1,000 Ford-site charging points, IONITY and FordPass Charging Network to support electrification growth; calls for faster expansion of public charging network
MARBLE ARCH, London, Feb. 13, 2020 – – Ford today revealed the all-new Mustang Mach-E to the European public for the first time as the company launched a new ‘Go Electric’ experience that will help consumers across Europe make an informed transition to an electrified future.

The all-electric Mustang Mach-E with its targeted pure-electric driving range of up to 600 km (more than 370 miles) under WLTP regulations1 is destined to banish range anxiety to the history books and spearheads a rapidly expanding Ford electrified vehicle range.

Ford customers in Europe will be able to choose from 18 electrified vehicles by the end of 2021, up from 14 by the end of this year. The company is promising to deliver electrified options on all future passenger vehicles. Globally, Ford is investing more than $11 billion dollars to electrify its vehicles.

Ford’s electrified vehicles utilise a range of powertrain technologies including 48-volt mild hybrid, full hybrid, plug-in hybrid and all-electric – delivering innovative solutions to suit every lifestyle. Ford estimates that fuel savings for customers delivered by electrified variants of Ford’s popular Fiesta, Focus and Kuga models alone could reach more than €30 million per year.2

All-electric and plug-in hybrid Ford vehicles will be backed by an industry-leading Ford Charging Solutions ecosystem that will deliver seamless, integrated access to charging at home and across Europe. Mustang Mach-E customers placing a reservation in 2020 will receive a free 1‑year subscription to FordPass app services that enables users to effortlessly utilise FordPass Charging Network locations and pay for charging services from a single account.3

Ford also today announced plans to introduce 1,000 charging stations at Ford facilities across Europe during the next three years to make charging simple and convenient for employees. Stuart Rowley, president, Ford of Europe, called on governments, industries and institutions to support the push for electrification with faster expansion of public charging infrastructures.

“Ford is at the forefront of real change, and we’re committed to providing all of our customers with the broadest choice of electrification options,” Rowley said. “Infrastructure is critical to helping consumers have the confidence to go electric, but we can’t do it on our own. Accelerated investment by all the key stakeholders across the U.K. and Europe is more important than ever.”

Helping consumers ‘Go Electric’

Ford’s ‘Go Electric’ roadshow is a unique, immersive and interactive experience designed to help consumers make an informed choice on electrified vehicles.

Launching at London’s famous Marble Arch, ‘Go Electric’ will reach an estimated audience of 4 million consumers during a 50-stop, 200-day U.K tour. Separate ‘Go Electric’ experiences in up to seven European markets will follow. Hands-on, engaging activities will help de-mystify electrification and inspire confidence in consumers who often remain confused about the different types of electrified powertrains available and their benefits.

A recent Ford-commissioned survey7 revealed that the 3 in 4 people aspire to own an electrified vehicle one day, with almost half (45 percent) claiming not stopping for fuel is a key benefit of owning one. However, 40 percent of people claim to have little or no knowledge of electric vehicles which means they’re unlikely to make the switch from pump to plug soon. Almost half (49 percent) of consumers rank a lack of charging stations among their main concerns about owning an electric vehicle.

“We made a commitment to make electrification relevant and attainable for more drivers than ever before. By the end of 2020 we’ll have delivered on that commitment, with no fewer than 14 electrified vehicles in Europe, and 18 coming by the end of 2021,” said Rowley. “Our ‘Go Electric’ roadshow will help consumers understand that electrified vehicles are ready and waiting to slip seamlessly into their lives.”

Mustang Mach-E tuned in Europe, for Europe

Ford brought the Mustang Mach-E all-electric SUV to life through a development process concentrated entirely on customer needs and desires. Ford of Europe engineering teams were involved from the outset to deliver vehicle architecture, hardware and software characteristics that support the needs of European customers.

Mustang Mach-E spring and damper specifications, electric power-assisted steering, electronic stability control and Mach-E 4 all-wheel drive settings are tuned specifically for European roads and driving styles.

Equipped with an extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive, Mustang Mach-E’s pure-electric driving range of more than 370 miles according to the World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) will help ensure customers can undertake longer journeys confidently. Eighty-five percent of Mustang Mach-E customers placing pre-orders have opted for the extended-range battery.

Charging with up to 150 kW at an IONITY charging station, the Mustang Mach-E will reach a driving range of up to 57 miles within 10 minutes of charge time.4 The standard-range Mustang Mach‑E is estimated to charge from 10 percent to 80 percent in approximately 38 minutes while charging on a DC fast-charging station.5

At home, an available Ford Connected Wallbox solution will deliver up to five times the charging power of a typical domestic socket – meaning customers can add an estimated average range of 38 miles per charging hour, based on extended-range, rear-wheel drive configuration.4

Using connectivity delivered by the FordPass Connect on-board modem, the Mustang Mach-E can continuously improve through the delivery of secure over-the-air updates capable of enhancing vehicle performance and the next-generation SYNC® communications and entertainment system.

Next-generation SYNC uses machine learning to quickly learn drivers’ preferences and become even better over time. A 15.5‑inch screen and simple interface ditches complicated menus, making it easier to access features with touch, swipe and pinch controls, and conversation voice recognition. Featuring cloud-based connectivity, the system also introduces wireless compatibility with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and AppLink apps from smartphones and mobile devices.

An all-new architecture supports the open, light and airy interior environment. Modern design is fused with smart functionality, including the iF Design Award-winning execution for the premium B&O Sound System speakers, which are seamlessly integrated across the instrument panel like a sound bar.

Mustang Mach-E also features three unique drive modes; Whisper, Engage and Unbridled. Each drive mode fine-tunes driving dynamics, ambient lighting and dynamic cluster animations to match the desired character. Even vehicle sounds are adjusted for an authentic all-electric experience.

“Everything about Mustang Mach-E has been design from scratch with the customer at its core, from the all-electric powertrain to the next generation SYNC system,” said Roelant de Waard, vice president, Marketing, Sales & Service, Ford of Europe. “Even the purchase and ownership experience is new. Mustang Mach-E is the first Ford that customers can order, configure, customise, and even arrange delivery for, all online.”

Wait, so when I convert the mileage to EPA it comes out to 330 miles EPA range. Is this true?!

The Model 3 long Range AWD has a large WLTP range of 544 km. The Tesla Model 3 Performance naturally also has AWD thanks to a dual engine and sprint in 3.5 seconds from 0-100 km / h

Europe uses the WLTP cycle for its range estimates, which is almost always less conservative than the EPA's range figures. So the EPA's range is always less.

If they get 330 EPA range in US with RWD, they are going to knock everyone's socks off IMO. That is a clear home run and would send a message to Tesla.

Is that a new color? Doesn't look like either of the blues I've seen so far?

Wow satin matte looks incredible on the Mach-E since it accentuates the many body lines. Anyone know if satin paint requires any special washing / waxing process?
I'd also be concerned it's going to highlight ANY flaw in the contour of the car. Off the showroom floor will be nice, but overtime could become annoying.

Yes, per the first post: The Mach-E made its UK debut in a stunning satin blue color, but we do not yet know the color name nor its availability. We'll share that info as soon as we know.

I love it! Hopefully this is the one yet unannounced color that Ford talked about at the LA reveal: Our Q&A with Ford from 2019 LA Auto Show debut of the Mustang Mach-E
It would be surprising if the two additional colors end up being Grabber and Satin Blue. I’d expect the two options to be more distinct. So, unless Ford changes its mind regarding Grabber Blue being one of the two colors, I’m afraid that this won’t be the second color.
But, I sure hope it is (or that it replaces Grabber Blue). I would change my plans for a GB GT for a GT in this color in a heartbeat.
