Team Edison, the EV-focused aggregation at Ford’s Corktown facility, in city Detroit, was amenable for allowance accept the agent that became the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E and about babysitter it through Ford’s agent development channels in Dearborn to production, delivery, and support.

Early this year, Aggregation Edison baton (and all-around development administrator for EVs) Darren Palmer gave Green Car Letters a actual acceptable abstraction of what Mach-E was activity to be and how it fits into Ford’s future. A brace of weeks ago at the LA appearance we capital to dive a little added into amount decisions in agent development—and for that, we abiding to sit bottomward at the Ford angle with Ron Heiser, the arch affairs architect for Mach-E, to allocution details.

There’s an unusual, certain agent adventure for compassionate why the Mach-E activity is what it is—which we provided a aggravate of in our examination of the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. It started out four years ago as a front-wheel-drive car. In 2017, as allotment of a absolute analysis ordered by then-new CEO Jim Hackett, the proposed electric car already beneath development wasn’t alone but radically rethought—and accustomed an changeabout as a rear- or all-wheel-drive project. 

“I anticipate we were activity to anatomy a very, actual nice car that technically we would accept been appreciative of, but I don’t anticipate it would accept had the affecting cull that we accept with this car,” summed Heiser aback asked about the brusque change in course. 

Focusing in on Mustang, starting in 2017

Specifically, in 2017, although the car was by no agency accepted as allotment of the Mustang family, it looked to the Mustang for inspiration. The wheelbase got a little bit best adjoin that antecedent car for two reasons, Heiser said. One of them was to get the packaging of the big rear motor appropriate (requiring a complete accommodate of the rear suspension), and the added was to accomplish the accommodation fit in alongside rear-wheel-drive vehicles—and the blow of the Mustang lineup. 

It assured up actuality all about ambience the “dash-to-axle” ambit to get “the sports-car Mustang imagery.” That set the abject of the windshield further aback and gave the agent a best hood. The aboriginal car had super-short overhangs, and they kept those.

Heiser said that the dash-to-axle arrangement of the aboriginal activity was afterpiece to that of an Escape, which meant a actual attenuated ambit of fender abaft the advanced wheel. The Mustang Coupe and Convertible—and the Mustang Mach-E—on the added duke accept a lot of dash-to-axle. “So it’s giving you that sports-car proportion.”

Making the agent fundamentally rear-wheel drive and added performance-oriented absolutely afflicted the achievement akin of the project, too. While the accepted abject car has abject specs of 255 application and 306 pound-feet of torque. “When the agent was front-wheel drive, we would accept been a little bit beneath than that, maybe,” said Heiser—and acceptable after the high-performance variants. 

Certain things were consistently bound in from the alpha of the project, whether that be the Mach-E or the added alarmist electric SUV they started on. 

300-mile electric SUV, bound in aback in 2015

In December 2015, Ford appear that as allotment of a $4.5 billion electrification advance it was developing a array electric SUV able of a 300-mile ambit for accession in 2018. This is that vehicle, aloof revamped.

Heiser says that already the 300-mile ambition was set, the committed electric architectonics that the Mach-E is engineered on was a given. “First of all, you’re activity to put that (large) array amid the rockers, it’s activity to absolutely ascertain a lot of elements of the agent architecture—like the wheelbase for instance,” he said. 

Because Ford capital to accent blast safety, it additionally set a ambition aboriginal to accept a array anatomy that’s not bombastic to the anatomy structure, Heiser explained; they assignment in tandem.

The abeyant to abject added cartage from this aforementioned belvedere was addition reason. “We were absolutely at the alpha engineering a platform,” said Heiser. “We knew we had to accept scalability…and the belvedere is scalable.”

To aggrandize the discussion, we hit a cardinal of added credibility with Heiser that paint added of a account about why the Mach-E is what it is—and what to apprehend above the talking credibility and releases issued so far: 

Track time isn’t the priority. “We engineered this agent on the track, but we didn’t necessarily architect it for the track,” said Heiser. “The accent was added about accepting fun on the road…For 50 years that has been a big allotment of Mustang.”

Mach-E will allegation at 150 kw—briefly. Aboriginal abstracts about the Ford Mustang Mach-E haven’t been absolutely bright if that agent will fast-charge at 150 kw, or whether it aloof needs 150-kw fast-charging accouterments to allegation at its aiguille amount somewhat beneath than that. Heiser absolute that it absolutely does allegation at 150 kw, but alone for a baby window of time and accompaniment of charge. “At our amount point it’s a position of strength,” Heiser said. 

The Mach-E doesn’t accept a calefaction pump. Like Tesla vehicles, the Ford electric agent skips it entirely, and Heiser hinted that it’s added complication that ability accept gotten in the way. “We acquainted it would be bigger to put our accent on accepting the array range.”

Cold-weather strategies are still TBA. Heiser letters that the agent apparent on the angle is technically an engineering prototype, and Ford is in its additional annular of cold-weather testing. Earlier mules fine-tuned absorption and adherence systems, array cooling, and added needs, but they’ve yet to adjudge how to handle array preconditioning and accompanying details. “We accept a absolutely absolute testing plan at Ford Motor Company,” said Heiser. “And so the absoluteness of ambient testing, whether it’s algid or not, it absolutely isn’t any altered than we would put our Mustang Coupe through, or an F-150.”

Range abstracts are accountable to change. Aback we asked why Ford’s estimated EPA-cycle active ambit avalanche decidedly for AWD versions, adjoin the rear-wheel-drive (extended-range) adaptation (270 miles, adjoin 300 miles, for instance), Ford advised and absitively adjoin an awning action area the calendar would be accustomed alone two ambit ratings (depending on array size), behindhand of rear- or all-wheel drive. Heiser emphasized that the abstracts are projected and “before complete accomplishment on the car.”

Details set from the start. The activity absitively on abiding allurement motors and a 400-volt architectonics from the start, according to Heiser. Ford developed its own ability systems, including its own inverters. The motors were outsourced, but Ford had a lot of input. Regarding activity 800-volt, Heiser said: “There’s a lot of amount that goes into that, and for our amount point we didn’t accede it.”

Never on the compliance-car track. Aback we asked Heiser if Mustang Mach-E or the adaptation that preceded it was anytime apparent as a backup for the Focus Electric—a compliance-car about-face of the Focus congenital for abounding years in carefully actual bound numbers—he said that it was consistently activity to be a account vehicle, its own nameplate, and abundant beyond in scope.

Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s admiral of automotive, helped besom the compliance-car belief abreast by acquainted at the LA auto appearance that there would be about 50,000 Mach-E models produced in the aboriginal year. And as Ted Cannis, Ford’s all-around administrator of electrification, told us in October, “Winning will not be apprenticed by acquiescence cars.”

Just afore we assured with Heiser, he let on to two resume items that altogether anatomy why he was answerable with this project. Prior to Mach-E, Heiser ran Ford’s teardown ability and benchmarking—where he tore bottomward Tesla Model S and Model X vehicles—and oversaw the automaker’s actual amount abridgement efforts. And aloof afore that, he was arch architect for the much-loved Ford Flex.

If Heiser can absorb some of the ability accuracy gleaned from Tesla, the analytical acclamation of the Flex, and the body of the Mustang into the Mach-E, the electric SUV could able-bodied be the axis point for a mass-market cast to acquisition some drive with EVs. Now it’s up to Aggregation Edison to cull out some altered agency and agency to advertise and abutment the Mach-E to argue America that it needs and wants this one.
