The Ford Mustang Hybrid has been spotted testing for the first time ever. Yes, you heard right. Ford is turning the legendary Mustang into a Hybrid for the 2020 model year and the car has been spotted testing for the first time.
Emissions regulations are getting tighter with every passing year thanks to global warming caused by pollution and no car manufacturer is spared by these regulations. As a result of that, many car manufacturers have gone the hybrid way or electric vehicle way.
Unfortunately for us enthusiasts, the Ford Mustang is the latest performance car to have fallen prey to hybridisation. The Ford Mustang is one of the most legendary cars of all time. It is known globally for its performance and outrageous power output figures thanks to its V8 powertrain.
Keeping emissions and cost of sale in mind, Ford had earlier introduced a V6 engine in the Mustang and were considering a 4-cylinder engine as well, but the evergreen V8 engine was still offered.
Now though, the American car manufacturer has gone the hybrid way and there is no looking back. Patents filed by Ford had revealed a V8 hybrid powertrain, so if the V8 motor has not been shelved, what is different? It is the drivetrain that is different.
The Ford Mustang hybrid will be powered by a V8 engine, but the catch is that the V8 will drive only the rear wheels. The battery and electric motors will drive the front wheels only. Details of the engine and motor are not available at the moment.
Design-wise, the 2020 Ford Mustang looks almost identical to the current model. Up front, the fog lamps have been moved closer to the headlamps. The side profile is widely the same. At the rear is a single exhaust outlet on each side compared to the dual-exhausts on each side in the current model.
The spy images reveal that the car does not come with a diffuser, but we think it just might be found on the final version after tests are completed.
Thoughts On 2020 Ford Mustang Hybrid Spotted Testing
The Ford Mustang is almost like the holy grail of raw naturally aspirated or supercharged V8 engines. Seeing a Mustang go the hybrid way is saddening in many ways, but the way things are going in the automotive industry, it seems like the only way the Mustang will survive once emissions regulations are tightened.
