Ford Motor Company has all but confirmed an electrified Mustang is in the pipeline, with a new video advertisement published on the company's global YouTube channel providing a glimpse at the future of the galloping horse.

The video in question, narrated by Emmy award-winning actor Bryan Cranston, explains the American brand's commitment to build innovation with electric and autonomous technologies.

While the ad is just over one minute long in duration, it is but a two-second cut-away which gives us a glimpse at what appears to be an electrified Mustang.

A single front-on shot shows a stylised version of the iconic Mustang face, with a neon blue logo and flat grille giving evidence to its electrified powertrain.

Ford announced it was planning an all-electric crossover vehicle for 2020 at the Detroit motor show in January, to be the first of 16 pure-electric vehicles to roll out globally by 2022.

At the time, Ford confusingly used an electric-blue 'Mach 1' logo as the platform's moniker, which harks back to the high-performance Mustang variants from the late '60s to 2004.

Ford has since said the Mach 1 nameplate is only a working title, and will only be officially used for an EV if fans of the brand approve of it.

Whether or not the vehicle shown in the latest Mustang teaser will be the next incarnation of the famed Mach 1 badge is open for speculation.
