Mustang Mach-E takes on Gravity, Lightning, DNA Oh my

(Ford debuts the Mustang Mach-E v. Everything campaign)

Since the Ford Mustang Mach-E was revealed, interest around Ford’s electric pony has been sky high. Recent insights point to the fact that Mustang Mach-E versus competitors’ comparisons have been growing rapidly.

For instance, “Tesla vs Mach-E” searches have went up nine times during the past few weeks. This is in line with automotive comparison searches using “versus” which have gone up specifically around electric vehicles by 64.2 % in the last 12 months!

These insights spurred the creation of Mustang Mach-E v Everything – a campaign that spans across five films that pin the electric SUV against extreme elements—Gravity, Lightning, Racing Pit Crew, DNA and even Rocket Science—in some impressive and visually captivating stunts to flex the strengths that make the Mustang Mach-E a winning contender in electric vehicles.

In essence, the campaign, that was coincidentally shot at the same location as Ford v Ferrari, brings to life the spirit of Mustang by putting it to the test through a series of bold, unexpected experiments that are brought to life in ways only a Mustang can. Watch below:

In MUSTANG MACH-E v. GRAVITY: The torque in the 2021 all-electric Mustang Mach-E is powerful. But is it powerful enough to challenge the laws of gravity? See how the electric pony’s off-the-line performance fares against a falling chandelier.

Here we have MUSTANG MACH-E v. ROCKET SCIENCE. The range of the 2021 all-electric Mustang Mach-E is impressive. But what does an impressive range look like? With the help of a 12-foot rocket, we visualize the EPA-estimated 300-mile range of the Mustang Mach-E Premium Model with available extended-range battery and rear-wheel drive.

MUSTANG MACH-E v. LIGHTNING: The 2021 all-electric Mustang Mach-E can be charged super-fast. But can it beat the charge of lightning generated from a 12-foot Tesla coil? Find out when the Mustang Mach-E’s impressive DC Fast Charging capability goes head-to-head with lightning.

MUSTANG MACH-E v. DNA: The 2021 all-electric Mustang Mach-E is capable of learning the behaviors and adapting to the preferences of individual drivers. But is it smart enough to tell the difference between the identical ones? See what happens when the personalized technology in Mustang Mach-E takes on twins.

The work was created by creative agency partner, BBDO New York, and produced with 1stAvenueMachine Directors Aaron Duffy and Bob Partington and Still Photographer Tyler Gourley who are known for their technical and scientific approach.
