Ford Motor Company debuted its new Mustang Mach-E electric SUV on Sunday, a major foray into the electric market for the auto giant.
The vehicle will tout a 255-horsepower engine and is expected to have a 230-mile range before needing a recharge. The high-end option of the vehicle will cost more than $60,000, while the lower-end release model can be had for around $37,000. Cheaper options are expected in the future.
Not only is it the first major electric vehicle introduction for Ford, but it’s the first time the company has attached the legendary “Mustang” name to an SUV. Since the 1960s Mustangs have only been two-door coupes.
Notable features of the Mach-E include a lack of traditional door handles — drivers and passengers will instead push a button to open their doors.
