Ford's Mach-E wants to go playing in the snow

DETROIT: With the Northeast of the United States expecting record sub-zero temperatures and record snow-fall, according to forecasts, Ford's electric Mustang Mach-E wants in on the conditions.

Priced from USD$43,895 (RM190,000), the American sports utility vehicle is looking to test out its all-electric all-wheel-drive system

The US carmaker says that almost all those residing in the northern and Midwestern US states - particularly New England who have made a reservation include an all-wheel-drive system.

Ford has tested its all-electric Mustang Mach-E in extremely cold and hazardous conditions at Smithers Winter Test Center - an 800-acre facility in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

There, its development engineers have worked to evaluate performance over the most challenging roads and in the harshest of elements.

“The team has integrated e-drive propulsion, all-wheel-drive calibration and brake control in a way that optimizes fine motor skills to enable immediate response in low-traction conditions and ensure the performance expected from Mustang – even in the snow," said Ford Mustang Mach-E vehicle engineering manager Robert Iorio.
