This week we saw the 2020 Ford Mustang Mach-E in the flesh for the first time and were able to ride in it. Now, Ford has released its “Making the Mustang Mach-E” documentary to share the story of how the model came to be.
Originally, the Mustang Mach-E was not going to be a Mustang. When Jim Hackett, the company’s president and CEO took over in May 2017, he created a dedicated electric vehicle (EV) team, named Ford Team Edison. The team changed course, moving from plans for a mundane EV, something more like the Chevrolet Bolt, BMW i3, and Nissan Leaf, to the performance-driven model that would evolve to become the Mustang Mach-E.

The 20-minute film is narrated by members of the team and Mustang owners. It was created by Ford and Chrome Productions. The film was executive produced by Chrome Managing Director Joel Mishcon and Gez Medinger, produced by Melly Cook, directed by Jamie Crawford and edited by Alessandro Dordoni at Chrome London.
Customers can now reserve their Mustang Mach-E online. Deliveries begin in late 2020.
