Ford announces the return of the ‘Mach 1’ name as an all-electric SUV

Ford announced the new Ranger pickup truck, Edge crossover, and Bullitt Mustang at the North American International Auto Show, and the company has one more surprise. The company surprised everyone by saying that they’re planning an all-electric performance SUB called the “March 1” that will hit the roads in 2020.

The badge that was once adored by many on a beautiful vintage Mustang will now be represented in an entirely different ways. Ford didn’t offer many details regarding Mach 1’s performance or what it looks like, but a short teaser video showed the project. The video showed a Mustang and an Explorer pull into a building just before a fake bolt of lightning strikes. This basically tells us that it will be an all-electric SUV where the doors come back up before the video cuts out.

While we didn’t get any answers, Ford executive Jim Farley teased the Mach 1 with a handful of questions. “What happens when this,” he asked before the roar of an internal combustion engine played on stage, “meets an e-racer acceleration?” Another question was: “Can a battery electric vehicle stir the soul?”

Needless to say, this new SUV has a lot to love up to because of the Mach 1 name.
