Ford Registers Mustang Mach-E Trademarks, With Hints Regarding India Re-Entry

<p>By registering the moniker for its electric SUV, the Mustang Mach-E, as a trademark, Ford has made a big step toward its re-entry into the Indian market.</p>
<p>This action may indicate that the American carmaker is moving forward with its intention to launch the Mustang Mach-E in India.</p>

<p>Prior to the corporation closing its local operations in 2021, Ford had previously announced that the Mustang Mach-E will be launched in India.</p>
<p>According to Teambhp, the government’s import rules, which permit the import of up to 2,500 units without the necessity for homologation, provide for the Mustang Mach-E to be brought into India as a fully constructed unit (CBU).</p>
<p>Ford hasn’t yet revealed the Mustang Mach-E’s price in India, but it’s expected to cost more than Rs 1 lakh.</p>
<p>The reduced Goods and Services Tax (GST) rate that applies to electric cars in India, however, will help the electric SUV.</p>
<p>The Mustang Mach-E is offered in both rear-wheel drive (AWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) versions, with normal and extended-range versions, in worldwide countries.</p>
<p>With a 72kWh battery, the entry-level RWD Mach-E can generate 269 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque, with a range of 470 kilometers. With a 91kWh battery that produces 294 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque, the range extender model is said to have a 600km range.</p>
<p>With a 91kWh battery, the AWD model produces 351 horsepower and 580 Nm of torque, enough for 548 kilometers of driving distance. With a range of 489 kilometers, the top-of-the-line GT AWD model produces 487 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque thanks to its 91kWh battery.</p>
<p>Following the news of the company’s sale of its Chennai facility, Ford decided to trademark the Mustang Mach-E brand.</p>
<p>Ford chose to keep the facility in spite of getting many proposals from automakers including Vinfast, MG, and Tata Motors, which fueled rumors about its potential re-entry into the Indian market.</p>
<p>When the Mustang Mach-E is introduced in India, it will go up against high-end electric cars like the Audi Q8 e-tron, BMW iX, and Mercedes-Benz EQE.</p>
<p>For 2024, Ford is also adding a Mach-E Rally variant to the performance portfolio for the Mustang Mach-E, which is intended for off-road driving.</p>
<p>This variant will include an upgraded dual-motor all-wheel-drive engine from the Mach-E GT performance edition, along with an elevated suspension and more underbody protection.</p>
<p>Furthermore, the fastest 0–60 mph time of any production Mach-E vehicle is anticipated to be provided via an as-yet-unnamed optional performance enhancement.</p>
<p>Additionally, Ford has revealed new color choices for the Mach-E GT in black, white, and green, as well as a Bronze Appearance Package that includes a bronze grille, badging, and 20-inch wheels. The Mach-E’s GT variants will also have 10-way performance front seats.</p>
