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.
