Ford Mustang: the rechargeable hybrid version abandoned in favor of 100 % electric

If Ford has not confirmed anything, this generation will surely be the first electrified Mustang. There is already an electric mustang, the machine, but it is a crossover. Here, there is talk of real Mustang, the pony-car available in coupe and convertible. It remains to be seen whether an electrified version will be announced from the start of the new model, which obviously will not take any risks in terms of style.

The Ford Mustang Hybrid could arrive next year

While rumors have been talking about it for a long time, the Ford Mustang Hybrid should make its official appearance in 2023.

While all manufacturers are now forced to electrify themselves, whether with zero-emission or simply hybrid models, you will have to expect to see more and more sports. While some brands have simply decided to make them disappear, such as Renault and Peugeot, others should adapt. This is particularly the case of Ford, which should make some modifications to its Mustang, for the time being only offered with a V8 5.0 liters on the French market, after the disappearance of the Ecoboost version, with very relative success. To tell the truth, it has been a few years already that we think that the coupe will go through the electrification box, the only solution for it to remain over the years.

Arrival next year

Well it seems that these rumors are true. Be careful, Ford has not confirmed for the moment, and it will be necessary to wait for an official press release or a revelation of the car to have a clear heart. But according to the American YouTube channel Autoline, the next generation of the best -selling coupe around the world will indeed be electrified. For the time being, no additional information has been revealed, but everything suggests that it will be hybridization, which should then operate with the V8 and the four -cylinder Ecoboost, still sold on certain markets. These corridors had started following the publication on LinkedIn of the brand’s engineers on LinkedIn, saying that he was working on a hybrid system for Mustang.

In addition, a version 100 % electric would also be in the pipes. She would then see the day by 2028.

Ford Mustang: the rechargeable hybrid version abandoned in favor of 100 % electric

The Ford Mustang Hybrid which was to be marketed was finally canceled. If the next version will still be thermal, the following will therefore become 100 % electric without going through hybridization.

The Ford Mustang alongside the Mach-E

We knew that the “real” Ford Mustang would one day electrified. But if that should be done gradually, the transformation would ultimately be much faster than expected. In any case, this is what the site explains to us Autoweek, who reveals some information about the future of the American pony-car.

No hybrid version

Some probably remember it. In 2017, Ford announced its desire to deeply transform its Mustang and offer it a hybrid version. This was then to be equipped with a V8, whose power had not been communicated. At that time, the brand had also indicated the arrival of an electric SUV, which would become the Mustang Mach-E. A few years later, things have changed somewhat. If the latter finally was born, we are still waiting for the hybrid version of the Pony-Car, which was to be based on the current generation. And for good reason, it will never come out of production lines.

Asked about the launch of the latter by analysts of Wall Street, the boss of Ford, Jim Farley would not have given an answer. But according to Autweek, it would be negative. There will therefore be no hybrid version, which would have made the transition gently between the purely thermal and electric versions. Because it is sure that the American sportswoman will soon convert to this engine, to the chagrin of purists.

A 100 % electric version in 2028

That the latter reassure themselves, The next 2023 generation, which should be officially unveiled in a few weeks at the Detroit show would still be 100 % thermal. But you can imagine, it will not be able to last forever. According to Autoweek, it is the following version, which will see the light of day in the year 2028, which should then convert to the electric. A change of size for the pony-car, rather follower of the V8 verbombing. But the instantaneous couple of the electric should not leave the lovers of beautiful mechanics indifferent.

If we obviously know very little about it, the first information evokes a common base with the Mustang Mach-E. Indeed, Jim Farley has confirmed that Ford does not plan to develop new platforms, contrary to what General Motors does with its ultimate architecture. The engines should logically be similar to those of the SUV, with two and four -wheel drive versions. It is also rumored that a shelby version of the electric Mustang would be on the program, then arriving a little later.

The first hybrid Ford Mustang unveiled at the start of the school year ?

Ford confirmed that he will present on September 14 the brand new Mustang, the seventh name. The brand thus gives a nice gift to the organizers of the Detroit show, who find there a beautiful gondola head for their show, back after more than three years of absence.

If Ford has not confirmed anything, this generation will surely be the first electrified Mustang. There is already an electric mustang, the machine, but it is a crossover. Here, there is talk of real Mustang, the pony-car available in coupe and convertible. It remains to be seen whether an electrified version will be announced from the start of the new model, which obviously will not take any risks in terms of style.

Latest news, the Mustang should resume, depending on the market, the four -cylinder 2.3 Ecoboost and V8 5.0. To this could be added a hybrid version, which would be perfect for Europe and in particular to the French market. A hybrid version would have lower CO2 discharges, thus avoiding the delusional penalus that strikes the current model.

Simple or rechargeable hybrid ? The bets are open. Unless Ford plays the surprise and directly announces a 100 % electric Mustang Coupé ! We can’t wait to know. Strongly back to school !
