Ford can switch from Mach 1
The car manufacturer announced in January that it was working on an electric performance SUV code name Mach 1, but Mustang fans immediately upon granting the classic muscle car moniker for such another type of vehicle.
Ford later realized that it was just "evaluating" the use of the name, and now a new trademark program shows that it may have decided against it
First reported by The Drive, Ford on November 26, filed for trademark protection of the name Mach E for "Motor cars, namely electric vehicles, passenger cars, trucks, sports cars, terrain vehicles and structural parts, fittings and marks therefor; metal characteristic frames." The boiler language covers a lot of ground, but obviously contains the type of vehicle to be debut in 2020.
Ford has recognized the public filing, it will not confirm the purpose behind it.
Doing this more exciting is the fact that Ford is expected to release a hybrid version of Mustang that year, and Mach E may be even better suited for that car.
Ford also has the trademark Model E, which fought Tesla for the rights in 2014, and could end up with one of the 40 other electrified vehicles it plans to introduce by 2020.
