      Electric Powerhouse

      This is how Continental contributes to the Ford Mach-E

      Ford has added the Mach-E, the first fully electric vehicle in its worldwide electrification campaign, to its sporty Mustang family. The new vehicle has a lot of Continental on board.

      What a car: The Mustang is the Ford sports car par excellence. An American icon starring in more than 500 movies and celebrated in the songs of US music giants. Ford has been manufacturing the car with the long hood since 1964, with the 10 millionth Mustang rolling off the production line in 2018. With the Mach-E, Ford has now added a fully electric model to the family.

      Continental inside

      As Mustang Mach-E GT, with up to 487 hp, it gallops to 100 km/h in 3.7 seconds – the necessary grip for this acceleration is provided by tires from Continental: the top PremiumContact6 or CrossContact RX models. But there is much more Continental inside the new Mustang, namely components produced at twelve Continental locations in six countries.

      The electronic, vacuum-less MK C1 brake system in a one-box design, for instance, comes from Morganton (USA), while the electric parking brake and the leather-look seat and door upper material are produced in San Luis Potosí (Mexico) and Winchester (USA) respectively. The sports car also has wheel speed sensors and a telematic antenna as well as a number of electronic control units from Continental on board, including the light control unit for the LED headlights and the power liftgate control unit, which enables sensor-controlled opening and closing using a foot gesture.

      Like its predecessor, the Mustang Mach-E is a real wild horse. It proves that this classic does not need a roaring gasoline engine to fascinate.
