InsideEV’s got an in-depth look at Ford’s technical center and interviewed the engineers behind the Mustang Mach-E.
Ford invited our own Kyle Conner to the Ford Performance Technical Center in Concord, NC to experience the all-electric Mustang Mach-E. We recently published an in-depth driving review of the car, at least with the information we could gather from Ford’s incredibly realistic virtual vehicle development simulator.
“While the vehicle was invented more than 130 years ago, virtual development took first tentative steps in the early 80s. Testing and experiments have been leading the development process. More than 20 years later, digital images of the vehicle were called “Digital Prototypes” and a process was established with the primary objective to reduce hardware. Physical and digital prototypes were now treated equally.
Future products have to be smart and sustainable. For the automotive industry this can be translated into e- mobility, connectivity, autonomous driving and shared mobility.
