Revealed last week, the sixth-generation Mustang is still under the spotlight, with a formal proposal on hypothetical variants hybrid engine or diesel or electric.
After introducing the new Ford Mustang Coupe 2015, it is time to focus on her convertible declination. The two models come in simultaneously marketing or end of 2013 in Europe.
Few pictures were available on the day of the presentation, but since many shows across 6 major cities, gave us the opportunity to contemplate the Ford Mustang Convertible 2014.
Initially strict gasoline
The sixth-generation Mustang was introduced on December 5, with a more slender and classical style, and will be launched in late 2014 in Europe. At the moment, the U.S. cut adopts three petrol engines: a 2.3-liter 4-cylinder 309 horsepower, 5.0-liter V8 426 hp and 3.7-liter V6 is not available in Europe.
But other blocks would be expected under the hood of the engine department manager of Ford, Bob Fascetti. It revealed to Australian site GoAuto that Ford was working on more sober versions to meet anti-pollution standards.
Diesel, hybrid and electric study
“We do not expect diesel at the moment, but given that we have to make in terms of consumption we study all options” confirmed Fascetti, “and the diesel is one of those options, as well as hybrid or electrical. “
And no question of abandoning the V8 for reasons of ecology. “We can comply with the emission level with 5.0 [liter V8], this is not a problem,” says Fascetti, “as long as we can meet the needs that the new Mustang requires the V8 will be there for a good time. “
If an electric version seems utopian, a hybrid version would not be a blasphemy knowing that the future Nissan GT-R should give and current supercars are converted to (918, P1, LaFerarri).
Finally, the diesel seems to be a betrayal to fans, but would be an adequate response to the German rivals (Series 4, A5) which are widely and with a way to ensure the presence or success in Europe.
