Leaked CAD images may have revealed the final design of Ford's new electric SUV.
The long wait for Ford's upcoming Mustang-inspired electric SUV is nearly over. This week, Ford finally confirmed it will lift the wraps off the electric SUV on November 17, just before the 2019 LA Auto Show kicks off. While Ford gave us a sneak peek at the design with a teaser shot of the SUV's sleek profile with Mustang-inspired design lines, a leaked CAD image obtained by Allcarnews shows the full design in all its glory. While the legitimacy of the photo hasn't been verified, the design details appear to match what Ford has shown us so far
These CAD design photos have enabled Allcarnews to produce an accurate render of what Ford's new electric SUV will look like. At the back, the images show Mustang-style triple LED taillights, just as we saw in the teaser released by Ford last year.
It also has sleek Lincoln Continental style window trim and door handles, a sloping roofline, and a large rear wing to improve the aerodynamics while replicating the Mustang's muscular styling. The Mustang design cues continue at the front with similar LED headlights, and the CAD also shows a closed-off grille since there won't be a combustion engine.
Ford hasn't revealed any powertrain details yet but has confirmed the electric SUV will deliver an EPA-estimated range of over 300 miles. Rumors have also suggested it will be available with all-wheel and rear-wheel drive and offer multiple battery pack options. We still don't know the name of Ford's new electric SUV, but trademark filings suggest it will be called the Mach E.
As for pricing, the Ford Mach E is expected to cost between $40,000 and $60,000. This would allow it to compete with the Tesla Model Y, but it looks like it will be larger and more comparable in size with the Model X. More details will be revealed next month when Ford's new fully electric SUV debuts.
