The Mustang Mach-E is exceeding all of Ford’s expectations. Along with the F-150 Lightning pick-up, this model has become the main reason why the oval firm has decided to accelerate its electrification plans because despite being a relatively expensive vehicle, it is reaping a healthy level of sales all over the world.
According to a report posted on the Mach-E Club forum, the current Mustang Mach-E (internal code CX727) will go out of production in June 2026, while the second generation (internal code CX733) will go into production just a month later. , in July. In addition, this new installment will bring an important novelty with it: the arrival of a coupe variant.
The Ford Mustang Mach-E Coupe (internal code CX799) will also begin to be assembled in July 2026. Although more and more manufacturers are betting on “coupé” SUVs (Audi Q4 Sportback e-Tron, Skoda Enyaq Coupé iV, Volkswagen ID.5, Volvo C40…), the truth is that the Mustang Mach-E already falls into that category, since it has a fastback -type silhouette with a very stretched rear window.
Therefore, it may be a completely different model within the Mustang Mach-E family, from a true two-door sports heir to the thermal Mustang to a four or five-door saloon (remember that, For some time now, many brands have begun to classify their sports sedans as “coupé” sedans.) Ford has been testing the launch of a Mustang sedan for years, a move that would allow it to stand up to the BMW i4, Polestar 2, and Tesla Model 3.
The Ford plant in Almussafes will industrialize the GE2 platform that will be used by the next Mustang Mach-E
Both the SUV and the “coupé” will use the new GE2 platform (the current Mustang Mach-E is based on the GE1) and will continue to be manufactured in Cuautitlán, Mexico. However, it is interesting to remember that Ford recently assigned the production of two electric cars based on this architecture to the Almussafes (Valencia) plant, so the European versions are probably of Spanish origin.
With the expansion of the Mach-E family, Ford will turn Mustang into a kind of premium sub-brand within its range, competing for head-to-head against firms such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Tesla. This strategy will also be followed by General Motors with Corvette, although in this case, it will become completely independent from Chevrolet.
