Good luck trying to outrun it.
Last week, Ford finally lifted the wraps off the much-anticipated 2021 Mustang Mach E SUV. Inevitably, it hasn't taken long for talented render artists to envision other variants of Ford's first-ever electric SUV. This render designed by Aksyonov Nikita, for example, shows what the Ford Mustang Mach-E would look like as an electric police cruiser.
While Ford already builds a police version of the Explorer called the Ford Police Interceptor Utility, this hypothetical Ford Mustang Mach-E police SUV looks more intimidating with its muscular body and a front-mounted bull bar perfect for performing PIT maneuvers.
Flashing blue and red lights on the roof, spotlights mounted on the A-pillars, new wheels, and a traditional black and white police livery complete the look. If you saw one of these police SUVs stalking your rear-view mirror, you would pull over without hesitation.
With two electric motors producing around 459 hp and 612 lb-ft of torque resulting in a 0-62 mph time of 3.5 seconds in the range-topping GT Performance model, the Ford Mustang Mach-E Police Interceptor would have no trouble keeping up with fleeing criminals, so good luck trying to outrun it. With an extended-range battery, the rear-wheel-drive Mustang Mach-E will last around 300 miles on a single charge before running out of juice.
Pricing for the Ford Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,895 for the entry-level Select trim, while the range-topping GT model starts at $60,500. Deliveries are expected to begin in late 2020, but the Mustang Mach-E GT won't arrive until spring 2021.
We'll have to wait and see if the Mustang Mach-E eventually joins Ford's police fleet to replace the Explorer Police Interceptor Utility. Ford has hinted, however, that a hardcore Mustang Mach-E Shelby could be on the way that will no doubt pack even more power and have more engaging handling.
