Ford's Mustang-styled EV to get RWD, AWD variants
Buyers will also have two battery sizes to choose from.
Ford has released a few more details of its Mustang-inspired EV, confirming plans for several drivetrain and battery configurations.
A joint announcement with Electrify America mentions that the all-electric SUV aims to achieve a 300-mile EPA range rating with an "extended battery and rear-wheel drive." The fast-charging network will provide enough power to add 47 miles of range in just 10 minutes.
An all-wheel-drive variant will presumably have a slightly lower range estimate than the rear-wheel edition. The discontinued Tesla Model S RWD configuration offered around 10 percent better range than the equivalent AWD model, while the Model X is only available as a dual-motor crossover with a 325-mile rating for the Long Range package.
Rumored to be named the Mach E, Ford's electric crossover is slated to enter production by "late 2020" -- coinciding with the production target for its main rival, the Tesla Model Y.
