Whether you’re a Mach-E convert or one of the unbelievers, you need to watch this video about the construction of the newest member of Ford’s Mustang family.

Remember Ford has been talking about building a four-door version of the car since the early 1960s, so it should come as no shock.

With sales starting to ebb, the Mach-E could well become  the cash cow that keeps the Pony car afloat — at least for a few more years.

You’d better hope so.

Ford’s first long-range electric vehicle was not originally going to be a Mustang.

But after Jim Hackett took over as company’s president and CEO in May 2017, he created a dedicated electric vehicle team – Ford Team Edison.

The team shifted gears to create what would become the Mustang Mach-E.

It spent months meticulously crafting the vehicle based on Mustang’s half-century of heritage, and making sure it was armed with technology for the next generation.

The 20-minute film is narrated by members of the team and Mustang owners, and was created by Ford and London/Detroit-based creative production company Chrome Productions.

The film was executive produced by Chrome Managing Director Joel Mishcon and Gez Medinger, produced by Melly Cook, directed by Jamie Crawford and edited by Alessandro Dordoni at Chrome London.
