Ahead of its planned Sunday reveal, the Ford website briefly allowed clever users to see the full webpage for the electric Mustang Mach-E. This was spotted by the enterprising folks at Mach-E Forums, who posted (alleged) screenshots from the page showing pictures of the car before its full unveiling.
Ford quickly realized its mistake and fixed the site, but the “damage” was already done. The leaks, assuming they’re accurate, revealed five models and their base price points, per Jalopnik:
- Mach-E Select for $43,895
- Mach-E Premium for $50,600
- Mach-E California Route 1 for $52,400
- Mach-E First Edition for $59,900
- Mach-E GT for $60,500
All in all, it’s pretty competitive with the Tesla Model Y in terms of price and features, according to comparisons put together by Electrek. Tesla’s equivalent has more cargo space, but Ford wins on zero to 60 acceleration, generally speaking.
Idris Elba is going to be involved with the Sunday night unveiling in some capacity, for all of you fans of The Wire or Luther out there.
Attaching the Mustang name to Ford’s big, new all-electric car could lend it a level of perceived coolness to give it an edge over the competition. The federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for EV purchases is also sure to make this a tempting proposition for enthusiasts.
