Ford Teases Mustang-Inspired Electric SUV

We’ve known for some time now that Ford Motor Company is working on a Mustang-inspired electric crossover. Well, now the wait is nearly over. The Blue Oval has confirmed it will reveal its first battery-electric utility vehicle on November 17th.

Along with the announcement Ford has issued the above teaser sketch of the new SUV. Not a lot of design detail can be gleamed from this really rough sketch, but body lines similar to the Mustang are certainly highlighted in the sketch. The overall shape appears to be more coupe-crossover like than SUV, which has been rumored in recent months.

“We’ve busted the myth that electric vehicles have to be boring. And we’ve got our customers covered with North America’s largest electric vehicle public charging network,” Ford stated in a release accompanying the teaser.

Stay tuned on November 17th for all the details surrounding Ford’s new electric SUV.

    The drawing posted along with the other story on the site here show this thing to be quite interesting. i'm one of those having great anticipation and desire to see what really becomes of it. Now then since GM is a main competitor and they're supposedly going all electric at some point they say. What will they do to counter this if anything?


    What continually astonishes me is how GM has squanders it's considerable lead in BEV and hybrids. The Volt is still a pretty compelling engineering package and was heads and shoulders above the competition when it debuted. The Bolt is also a pretty competitive package. But, GM doesn't seem to want to spread the tech beyond specific vehicles. And, GM continually puts out interesting vehicles with glaring faults that eliminate them from contention for a lot of buyers. With the Volt, it was the fact that the first gen was four-seats only and a small sedan in a market quickly shifting to compact CUVs. With the Bolt, its a kind of awkward tall hatch styling, but more importantly, the lack of any kind of answer to Tesla's Supercharger network. Come on, GM -- you are a HUGE company with dealers in every town in the nation. You can't cook up a better charging network than Tesla?

    Even when GM has an opening for a knockout punch, they often seem to pull that punch for some reason. It's a real head-scratcher.

    The Ford product seems to be the right product at the right time. I'm just worried how they will handle the association with the Mustang brand. Even great cars (Australian GTO, for example) can stumble when given heritage names that don't fit the product.
