2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally is an Off-Road EV Coming This Year
Ford debuted the surprise Mach-E Rally at—where else?—the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Not wanting to be left out of the numerous Goodwood FoS debuts, Ford on Friday unveiled an unexpected version of its Mustang Mach-E in West Sussex. Dubbed the Rally, it takes the electric pony in a different direction: off the road. And it'll be on sale before the end of the year.
The EV SUV showed up wearing a very complicated camouflage wrap, and Ford has produced precisely zero performance figures to go with it. Nonetheless, there are some clues visible already. The front faux-grille has sprouted fog lights, and there's a red tow hook in the bumper. The overall design of the front-end is otherwise the same as the Mach-E GT. The debut car features rally-spec wheels and far knobblier tires than any other Mach-E, and what appears to be a slight ride height increase. Around back, a large spoiler now hangs above the rear window.
It's hard to tell based on the wrap, but the wheel cladding appears to contrast with the rest of the body, instead of the body-colored bits on the GT. There is also a small change to the LED lighting signature of the headlights.
“Mustang Mach-E took the freedom and fun of Mustang and made it free from emissions. Now with Mustang Mach-E Rally, we’re providing our customers the freedom to venture off the asphalt and beyond the beaten path,” said Darren Palmer, vice president of electric vehicle programs at Ford Model e.
The 2024 Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally will go on sale in the US, Canada, and Europe before the end of the year. Expect more details closer to launch.
