The Mach-E Rally is designed to explore uncharted territory where traditional Mustangs have never ventured before, embracing both asphalt and off-road adventures. It is Ford's first rally-inspired electric SUV, showcasing the brand's commitment to electrification and performance.

While specific details about the vehicle are yet to be released, Ford has shared some enticing images. The electric SUV sports a custom full body wrap with eye-catching "Mach-E Rally" decals along the sides, showcasing its rallying spirit.

Taking a closer look at the photos reveals several noteworthy features. These include a rally-style roof spoiler adorned with white Mustang logos, a custom faux grille integrating additional round lights, a red tow hook at the front, white rally-style wheels fitted with BF Goodrich Trail Terrain T/A tires, and mud guards for rugged protection.

The front and rear bumpers bear resemblance to those of the Mustang Mach-E GT, hinting at a powerful performance. Inside the Mach-E Rally, the cabin closely mirrors that of the Mach-E GT, with cream accents on the front seat backs, steering wheel, and dashboard, as well as carbon fiber-like trim on the lower part of the dash.

The Mustang Mach-E Rally will be available for order in the fall, initially in the United States and Europe

While Ford has not disclosed specific powertrain details, if the Mach-E Rally inherits the Mach-E GT's traits, it could feature a dual-motor setup delivering an impressive 480 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque. In the Mach-E GT, this translates to a rapid 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds.

To give enthusiasts a taste of its capabilities, the rally-inspired SUV will participate in the Goodwood hill climb. Accomplished rally driver Ott Tänak, a former World Rally champion and current M-Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally driver, will take the wheel.

During a Twitter event, Ford CEO Jim Farley stated that upcoming Ford electric cars will support Tesla's NACS charging connector, allowing access to Tesla Superchargers without an adapter. Future Ford EVs will feature two charging ports for flexibility.
