Most of us would never consider driving our beloved, traditional Mustangs in harsh winter conditions. If you are planning to augment your stable with the forthcoming 2021 Mach-E, however, the winter snow and the traction troubles it presents will not dissuade you from going out for a drive.
Available with an optional all-wheel-drive arrangement, the all-electric Mach-E is suited to flourish in the harshest cold weather environments. To ensure it is up to the task, Ford engineers put the AWD Mach-E through its paces in frigid conditions at the company’s 800-acre Smithers Winter Test Center in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
“Mach-E’s available all-wheel drive is designed to help instill driver confidence in all conditions,” Robert Iorio, Ford Mustang Mach-E vehicle engineering manager, explained. “The team has integrated e-drive propulsion, all-wheel-drive calibration and brake control in a way that optimizes fine motor skills to enable an immediate response in low-traction conditions and ensure the performance expected from Mustang – even in the snow.”
With the first Mach-Es set for delivery late this year and early next year, the timing will be right to test out its cold-weather capabilities. If you haven’t reserved one yet, but you are interested, you can visit the reservation site here.
