2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E Australia one more step closer

The Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV is a certainty for Australia, dealer sources say, but the company is conducting some final checks before confirming arrival at local showrooms.

The 2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E electric SUV will undergo some final checks before being confirmed for Australia, well-placed dealer sources say.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E — the US auto giant’s first all-new electric vehicle in modern times — will be factory-made in right-hand and left-hand drive versions and sold in other right-hand drive versions. drive countries like the UK and New Zealand.

However, while the Mustang Mach-E is said to be a no-brainer for Australia, Ford is reportedly waiting for a few more final checks before confirming the game-changing vehicle for local showrooms.

This was announced by the technical director of the Ford Mustang Mach-E, Leeway Ho journey during a preview of the vehicle ahead of the 2022 Detroit Motor Show: “Our role in product development is to do our due diligence and make sure it’s not just paperwork.

“We comply with all local regulations and make sure the vehicle itself performs the way we want it to when navigating Australian roads.

“For example, the navigation system that is currently in current production only has North American and European maps, depending on where the car is going.

“We want to make sure we’re not just shipping a car where we’ve just changed a window decal, we want to make sure the customer gets the full experience.”

While the engineer did not confirm that the Mustang Mach-E would be coming to Australia, other senior Ford executives repeatedly told international media attending the Detroit show that it was a “global model”.

“We want to make sure it delivers the customer experience that a customer in Australia would expect from the vehicle,” said Mr. Ho.

A number of versions of the Ford Mustang Mach-E exist in the US: a variety of base models with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, and a high-performance GT version with all-wheel drive with a claimed 0-100 km/h time of less than four seconds.

However, it is currently unclear which models are destined for Australia.
