Are These Official CAD Images Of Ford’s 2020 Mustang-Inspired Electric SUV?

The shape and some details of Ford’s highly anticipated Mustang-inspired electric SUV are alleged to have been revealed in a set of CAD screenshots, presumably sourced from the actual vehicle and/or an official source. We’ve yet to confirm or disprove that these photos are absolutely genuine, so take what you see with a grain of salt – for now.

Allcarnews published the aforementioned CAD images alongside some quickly drawn (and honestly, pretty rough) renders based on those exact designs.

But the important thing is here are the CADs, as if you take a look at Ford’s most recent teaser image, you can clearly see the similarities here and our guess is that this is one very good attempt at finding out what the upcoming Mach-E -as the rumors suggest it’ll be named- will look like.

The sloping hood, the side character lines and the cab-back design of the teaser are portrayed here pretty accurately, together with the Mustang-inspired headlights and taillights.

Ford announced that the Mustang-inspired electric SUV will debut on November 17 during a special event ahead of the LA Auto Show. The company didn’t reveal any further details, apart from the previously known promise for a driving range of up to 300 miles (EPA), or 370 miles (600 km) on the WLTP cycle.

The Mustang-inspired electric SUV is also expected to share some of the dynamic character of the actual Mustang, at least that’s what Ford promises it will do. It’ll be based on a new EV-only architecture and will reportedly be offered in both rear- and all-wheel drive versions with different power levels.

All we have to do is wait a few weeks until November 17 to find out if these CAD screenshots are from the real thing, unless someone is willing to spill the beans earlier than scheduled.

Thanks to Evan for the tip!

EXCLUSIVE: Ford Mustang Mach-E ⚡️ ______________________________________ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [10/24/19] A super @Allcarnews Exclusive, this is 98% of what the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric performance SUV will look like! Today, Ford Performance, not Ford, has announced this special EV will be unveiled next month on the 17th…. but who wants to wait?? They also released a side teaser image too showing off the strong Mustang inspired lines, RWD characteristic cab back design and the signature mustang style lights! I made these renders based directly off exclusive CAD files along with great input from insiders! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ? @Allcarnews Spec sheet: Well we are expecting a 280-300mile range from a large floor mounted battery pack of an unspecified capacity. Larger battery options could take that up to 340miles or range! Expect over 400HP, RWD bias and high performance capability with technology derived from the GT350/GT500/Ford GT and other Ford Performance Products such as suspension, aero and handling characteristics. ? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is an EXCLUSIVE view of the rear too as no one has yet seen what it will look like so here you all go! The rear clearly has “Mustang inspiration” with the triple LED taillights, that Mustang fastback style design all with a unique flair. Compared to my last rendition this is more refined with accurate bits. It will have Lincoln Continental style window trim door handles to keep the body sleek, muscular and smooth, and it will have a MASSIVE rear wing and i mean HUGE to aid in aero and cover up the sloping roofline. Pricing is expected to be from $40k-$60k in line with the Tesla Model Y though it will be a larger vehicle, closer to the Model X size! ________________________________________ ACN EXTRA: Super exclusive render here! The rear derived from CAD images and loads of input so thank you (you all know who you are)! (Also made those taillights from scratch!) ________________________________________ -Text by @allcarnews -Render ©Allcarnews #Ford #MachE #FordSUV #EV #Mach1 #Mustang #USA #murica #Tesla #SUV #carbon ||#powerful #performance #turbocharged #supercharged

  • Kaido Alex

    That’s an awkward-looking design. It looks like a Jaguar I-Pace mixed with a Mustang.

  • Julien Lachemoi

    Oh Dear…

  • FlameWater

    It’s bad enough seeing mustangs spin out into poles but roll into them?

  • ErnieB

    I’ll reserve judgement until I see the final product.. but, if it looks like the red one, they better remove that pony logo because it doesn’t belong on the whatever it is..

  • Stephen G

    Nice. Combining the styling characteristic of a mustang with the versatility of an SUV. Gee, I wonder what would be a good name for that? Combining two things into a single entity…think man, think…

    • Mill0048

      Mach E! LOL… Bronco… It’s Bronco, right?

    • LJ


      • Stephen G

        LOL! Isn’t that a country in the Middle East?

  • Mill0048

    CAD images look good; Photoshops not so much. Can’t wait to see a more finished product.

    • Arct1c

      Thinking the same thing. I think people are judging the awful Photoshops too much. CAD images look so much better than the renders and are obviously going to be more accurate.

      • ErnieB

        That’s why I’ll reserve judgement ,, the photoshop images look nothing like the silhouette image ford just teased.

      • Allcarnews

        Actually no the CAD images aren’t accurate, from input from insiders the renders are more accurate as they include more final design bits

      • Mill0048

        Particularly with proportion. The ‘lighting’ (and missing hood/bonnet from the rear view pic) just hurts the Photoshops. It’s not to say they are less accurate, just less flattering.

  • TheBelltower

    My initial reaction was to throw up all over this. Though I gotta say, it looks like it’s going to be really good. It may seem blasphemous, but I think it’s smart to leverage the Mustang’s brand equity. Changing world, this is.


    cannot wait for ICE version replacing the coupe on 2024

  • iggination

    Is this seriously called an SUV? Worse than calling a 4-door sedan a coupe!

    • MarketAndChurch

      Maybe a tall 5dr hatch would be better.

  • I hope they gonna call the models the 5,0 (FiveO)

    • J. P.

      ??????? that’s gold, dude!

  • john1168

    So far I gotta say it doesn’t look bad. I do wish e car manufacturers would stop designing the front of their cars with areas that look like there was supposed to be a front grille but wasn’t installed. They have an opportunity to come up with something new and exciting, design wise, and they’re not going for it. Too bad really. But I guess they don’t want to make it look so radically different that it scares away potential customers. I guess they still want it to be familiar. Oh well… I wish solid state batteries would get here faster. This way newer E vehicles that are coming out would have much greater range and performance.

    • Matteo Tommasi

      What jag did with the front of the i-pace (a vent) is better.

      • Stephen G

        I think a car looks better with a grill than without. (acceptation to the rule is any Porsche)

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I’m okay with this.

  • Toronado_II

    CAD surfaces seems reallistic. I did not know that Ford was now working on CATIA.
    If this is a real leak, this guy is fired !
    I can’t tell about the look… I have to wait to see the real things.

  • Zcat 100

    I hope it doesn’t have the Tesla Model 3’s “duck” face as portrayed in this render.

    • Six_Tymes

      why? quack quack… lol. The rest of the design looks good though, don’t you agree?

      • Zcat

        Until I see the finished product, I can only give my opinion on these renders.

        Having said, yes, looking good.

        I’m not an SUV fan, but this blurs the lines between beefed up minivans and muscle car. More car companies will follow this trend if it takes off.

        A brilliant move by Ford! And, they need help now.

  • Jerry Stigliano

    Why not just wait until November 17 and let’s see the real thing, avoiding all the speculation, crappy renderings and surprise-ruining efforts? I am as excited as anyone but would rather build the anticipation.

    • Porkopolis

      Because this is marketing in 2019.

    • Eagle By Singer

      Were you around for the supra and it’s almost daily renders. Maybe the c8 Corvette as well..?

  • man

    The red render is interesting, but lose the escape front face.

    • Allcarnews

      yeah the final production version will have a quite sharper front end, was very difficult to replicate through only input from insiders, bad hand drawn sketches and not images

  • charlotteharry57

    It looks better than I’d feared, but still prepare for a ton of outcries from the Mustang faithful- along the lines of Porsche’s first SUV.

    • Jay

      and those naysayers have been won over since the Macan and Cayenne drive amazing for what they are and considerable bargain way of getting the Porsche experience. If Ford makes this thing AWD with RWD bias… even someone like me whos not that into Ford or Mustangs would have to consider it.

  • Six_Tymes

    good to see something new, suv wise anyway. back and side design look best. the back looks very cool, I like the way the rear side windows integrates.

  • donald seymour


  • Porkopolis

    I see more Model 3 than Mustang.

  • Lloyd Anthony D Peters

    So… An American I-Pace?

  • Yilmaz Yasar

    Looks like maserati levante. especially side profil and 3/4 rear quarter (sorry for bad english )

  • benT

    Take ANY Mustang cue (taillights, grill) and sticker it onto ANY 4WD and ¡¡PRESTO!!!!, ya gotchaself a Mustang SUV.

    There is NOTHING in the Mustang apart from panels that identifies it as a unique vehicle, apart from the marketing. Not one piece of engineering is uniquely identifiable as “Mustang”. Take an Aston Martin frigzample and you can count them for hours.
    The Ford Falcon when it first arrived and for the first few models was nothing more than a stretched high volume car based on the Mustang platform.

    • James Denz

      The Falcon came several years BEFORE the Mustang so the Mustang was built upon the Falcon chassis, not vice versa.

      • benT

        Underlines the sheer “ordinariness” of the Mustang engineering.
        Family sedan with nice body…..
        Just about any of the Mustang range of mechanical bits will and did fit the Australian version of the Falcon.

        • Randy Terpstra

          As James Denz said. The Mustang is based on the Falcon, so of course the “mechanical bits” were inter-changeable. Same deal with the first generation Camaro, which shared “mechanical bits” with the Chevy II.

          Aussies should be fond of the 5th Gen Camaro, as it was based on the final Australian-built Commodore’s platform. Lots of mechanical bits shared between the two. Much of the development and engineering of the 5th Gen Camaro, was done in Australia.

          • benT

            Underlines the sheer “ordinariness” of the Mustang engineering.

  • :/ Yurr

    Ford Edge in the front, Mustang in the back? ?. Its ok

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    If this is true then what a terrible disappointment. It looks incredibly dumpy, fat and dated. Horrid.

  • krusshall

    I see some Model Y in this design. These CAD images give me hope that the utility/passenger capability isn’t being compromised by the designers making it a 4-door coupe like the GLE, X6, X4.

  • Knarck

    Its almost as if they intended it to be an Electric Fusion but went the exciting way with Mustang DNA. Cant wait to see it!

  • ksegg

    It looks like a wrong Mustang. Like what you get when you try to create a unicorn crossing a rhino and horse and what you end up is an abomination that is begging “FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE KILL ME!”.
