High Voltage: Mustang Mach-E GT


The new Mustang trades the V8 muscle associated with the namplate for a battery-powered crossover. CDN discusses the CMT proposal with lead designer Janet Seymour

Ford goes in search of a new customer base with EV crossover, the Mach-E GT. Car Design News spoke with CMF design manager Janet Seymour who led on the project to discover how this car differed from the Mustang Mach 1, Edge ST and the upcoming next gen Mustang, which she also worked on. 

Car Design News: How has your previous work on Mustang and other performance vehicles influenced your colour and materials work on Mustang Mach-E GT? 

Janet Seymour: I’ve previously worked on performance vehicles throughout my career in color and materials. Most recently, that includes the Mustang Mach 1 that was just released, as well as our ST line of performance products. Over the years, I’ve been ingrained with an understanding of these products, the brand and performance aspects that contribute to their becoming iconic and enduring. Having had that experience and learning those lessons contributed to the choices our team made for Mustang Mach-E GT.
