Could The Ford Mustang-Inspired Electric Crossover Look This Good?

The Ford Mustang-inspired crossover is sure to ruffle a few feathers when it (reportedly) makes its public debut at this November’s Los Angeles Auto Show. This rendering provides a look at how the vehicle may look.

Created by designer Luca Serafini, the Mustang-themed SUV pictured here takes some design inspiration from the Porsche Cayenne Coupe to create a high-riding vehicle that is sleek and appealing to the eye. There are narrow side windows, for example, and a steeply raked roof which certainly looks the part but would inevitably limit headroom for those sitting in the second row.

The front of the crossover is where most of the Mustang elements are found. There are headlights virtually identical to those of the pony car although they do appear to be slightly larger. In addition, there is a sharp hood with small air vents and air extractors. A twin grille design adds to the appeal.

A teaser image released of the vehicle last year showed that it will have taillights very similar to the Mustang sports car.

Looks aside, we are told the new Ford electric crossover, known internally as CX430, will likely feature a pair of electric motors and support a battery pack large enough to offer a range of at least 300 miles (483 km). If the Blue Oval wants to rival the other electric SUVs on the market, including the Tesla Model X and Audi e-tron SUV, it had better ensure that the impressive range is backed up by some equally-as-impressive performance and handling.

    Wtf is that

  • Mr. EP9

    Are you high?

  • charlotteharry57

    Look this good? It looks absolutely and totally redonkulous.

  • Six_Tymes

    that is laughable. Proof this person does not have much taste in car design. And to Luca Serafini, the person who did this render. Put some effort in, and CREATE not just copy existing elements and use those.

    • Astonman

      sheesh. bad day?

    • benT

      the taste is in the sphinctre, on the inside..

  • dumblikeyou2

    It looks like a Acura ZDX had a three-way with a Focus ST and a Mustang one drunken night.

  • ErnieB

    Looks like a Honda Civic on steroids.. no no no!

    • Krisnadi Imam

      I would not mind if they turn the HRV this way.


    Decent rendering. That being said…needs a little more rear passenger head room for practicality. Mustang front…with Explorer body dimensions would be the sweet spot.

  • db

    I ain’t feeling it.

  • Bob

    I came here to ask the question: “This looks good?” but am glad to see that a lot of people beat me to it in many creative ways.

  • Honda NSX-R

    That kinda looks cool

    • benT

      cold as as a witch’s … !!

  • William rowe

    ha ha if that is even close to how the real one looks, ford better go back to the drawing board

  • Robert Eller

    If that looks good, you must be blind

  • MarketAndChurch

    Everything about this is perfect except for that Mustang face.

  • James Denz

    Hope you don’t mind my posting of your rendering here. Your’s looks much more plausible than the car in the article.

  • James Denz

    Horrid! A fat dumpy looking Mustang. There’s no doubt that the actual car, not called Mustang by the way, will look much different. An electric car would never have a big grill for one thing.

    • JqC

      You mean to say, an electric car SHOULD never have a big grille…

  • Craig

    I sure wish I could ‘render’ that well. Amazing! That said… I think it looks great. Perhaps even better than the Mustang itself.

  • no25

    “Look This Good?”
    If this looks good to you, then I don’t even want to know what looks bad to you.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    If the definition of “good” has changed.

  • Toronado_II

    To me, everyone try to recreate the Infiniti FX. This is the pioneer.
    And I wonder… why he is disappeared ?

  • DirtySouthVaper

    Oh, I see you use the phrase “look this good” very, VERY loosely….

    • benT

      more loose than beef curtains after two football team have travelled through.

  • Harry_Wild

    Love this rendering of a Mustang BEV crossover. Cannot wait till LA Auto Show starts!

  • JqC

    Outstanding. And better !

  • willhaven

    Ford can’t make anything look this good.

    • Enter Ranting

      I think Ford has done an amazing job with the Mustang since the Fifth Generation. It’s consistently one of the best looking cars on the road, in my opinion.

  • Some ol’ bloke

    the question is, if this is real, could it hold all the vomit coming out of our mouths?

  • drc

    I’m not a Mustang person but I would buy that.

  • Frase

    If you mean the quality of the rendering itself is “good” then yes. Otherwise no. This is sacrilege to the Mustang.

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I am a Volvo guy when it comes to this type of thing. You can’t drive them that fast anyways. But this has the best front of them all. The rest is a déjà vù.

  • Is today opposite day? If so, then yes – this does look good.

  • Alduin

    Hello Ford Aztec. That is the ugliest rendering I’ve ever seen.

  • the grill is off but probably.

    though really GM FOrd and FCA could probably make and do well selling a Crossover Coupe variant of their ponycars.
