Ford has curiously teased what appears to be an electrified version of the Mustang, showing a rather ambiguous vehicle with a pony badge that glows in blue. The teaser was part of the Built Ford Proud advertising campaign released recently (video below).

The car in question features a closed grille and dual-projector headlamps, both of which differ quite a fair bit from the standard combustion-engined Mustang. We can’t say for sure that it’s the next-generation Mustang, but one thing looks like a definite – the car will have some form of electric propulsion.

Ford’s electric SUV is said to offer a driving range of 480 km on a full charge, and will share several styling cues as the outgoing Mustang. It will also act as the spearhead for Ford’s venture into the world of electrifying its model line-up. Over to you – what do you think the teaser vehicle actually is?
