Rumour: Mustang to get only electric powertrains from 2028

According to a media report, Ford will offer the Mustang with only electric powertrains from 2028. There will be no petrol powered version of the muscle car available.

The report suggests that the next-generation Mustang is not expected for another seven years. The car, which has been codenamed S650, was expected to be launched in either 2022 or 2023. But now, it is not likely to be launched before 2028. However, a facelifted version of the current-generation model could be launched earlier.

The delay in the launch of the next-generation Mustang is caused because Ford was having trouble making its new CD6 platform suitable for its muscle car. That made the company put off its plans to launch the new car till 2026. The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in Ford pushing the launch ahead by another 2 years. By then, variants with internal combustion engines are likely to be discontinued.
