Fans of the Ford Mustang electric SUV, which is set to be revealed at this month’s Los Angeles motor show, may have previewed the model with this set of renderings.

Based on previous teaser images, and with inspiration from recently leaked CAD illustrations of the vehicle’s shell, members of MacheEForum have produced a compelling interpretation.

The images show wide rear hips, and a coupe-style silhouette with a roof spoiler. The inspiration from the Ford Mustang GT is clear, although a flat faux grille gives away the car’s electrified nature.

Readers have pointed out that the high-riding Mustang is reminiscent of the Porsche Cayenne Coupe, and other coupe-style SUVs like the BMW X4 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.

Nevertheless, with an an all-electric powertrain, it will surely be better positioned to rival the Tesla Model Y, and other smaller electrified SUVs.

It has yet to be confirmed exactly what the model will be called, however, the vehicle is known colloquially as the Mach E after Ford revived the ‘Mach 1’ moniker in an earlier teaser campaign.

The decision to use the Mach 1 nameplate for an electric vehicle was met with considerable negativity from fans, and so it is likely that Ford has since come up with a new name.

Reports from overseas suggest that the new model will be capable of travelling more than 300 miles (484km) on a single charge, and that a higher performance variant is on the cards.
