Ford's first dedicated electric vehicle will be known as the Mustang Mach-E.

Although it uses the Mustang name, the EV crossover is expected to share few physical attributes with the coupe and convertible except for badging and some styling cues, such as the tail-lights.

In terms of concrete details about the car, Ford has so far revealed it will have a range of 595 kilometres using the WLTP test cycle.

From spy photos, we know the car will be a five-door crossover coupe with flush-fitting door handles and a closed grille area.

We'll know more about the Mustang Mach-E soon, as the car will be unveiled in Los Angeles on November 17 at 6.30pm, local time.

After the launch is over, Ford will begin taking reservations for the vehicle for buyers in the US and Europe. To secure a place in the production queue, prospective owners will need to put down a refundable US$500 ($730) deposit.

The company will also have a similar reservation system in place for people in China, but details have yet to be confirmed.

Australia

It's unknown if the Mustang Mach-E will be sold in Australia. Ford is planning on bringing the plug-in hybrid version of the next-generation Escape to Australia, though.
