Is the Ford Mustang Hybrid Getting a V8?
The Ford Mustang is one of the most popular sports cars on the market. As 2020 draws nearer, the Ford Mustang Hybrid will soon make its way to our showroom and countless others across the country. Now, Ford has patented a new system that would fit suspiciously well as the Mustang Hybrid’s new engine.
Ford’s new patent
According to AutoGuide, Ford has patented a new powertrain system. The powertrain is a “twin motor drive system for [a] hybrid vehicle.” In other words, it’s a V8 engine designed to power a hybrid car.
The patent itself doesn’t mention the Ford Mustang Hybrid — or the highly anticipated Ford F-150 Hybrid. However, the timing of this patent fits perfectly with the upcoming release of the Mustang Hybrid, so many are beginning to speculate about any possible connections.
The Mustang Hybrid’s release date
Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of information about the Mustang Hybrid’s release just yet. Many estimate that the model will make it to the 2020 lineup, which would mean we’re right on the cusp of finding out more information. Until then, Ford has most of the details under wraps.
In the meantime, the 2019 Ford F-150 and 2019 Ford Mustang are available at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford. Call us today to schedule your test drive.
