Ford Introduces The Mustang Mach-E, An All-Electric Crossover SUV

Ford’s first true electric vehicle is here with the Mustang Mach-E, leveraging Mustang branding wrapped in crossover packaging and promising performance to live up to its name. 

The Mustang Mach-E is the first car to wear the Mustang name that doesn’t fit the familiar long-hood, short deck pony car profile, along with current EV styling cues like a grille-less front end and a massive touchscreen interface. The four-door body and raised ride height will no doubt strike a note with purists, but the practicality make it the right decision. 

The spec sheet puts the Mach-E GT, and especially the Mach-E GT Performance Edition, in the realm of Tesla and the European competition, with 0-60 times in the sub-four and mid-three second range respectively. Two battery options will be available at launch, good for 300 miles with the extended-range option. Power figures are 332 horsepower and 417 ft-lb of torque for the base model, with all-wheel and rear-wheel drive available. 

The Mustang Mach-E should hit showroom floors in late 2020 for $44,000+.

Ford’s Self Braking Shopping Cart

For parents of young children, in terms of stress, the weekly trip to the supermarket is right up there with getting the kids to bed and meal times. And few moments are more worrying than seeing your child careen off at high speed on a shopping cart. 

Taking inspiration from its own Pre-Collison Assist technology, Ford has now come up with the “Self-Braking Shopping Cart”.

While just a design concept and probably cost prohibitive, this device could prevent a lot of bruised ankles and dinged bumpers.
