Hear the ’80s sci-fi cinema’ inspired sounds of Mustang Mach-E

New exterior and interior sounds remixed into an EDM track

From the beginning, Ford designers and engineers knew Mustang Mach-E needed to have a sound all its own to fit in the Mustang family. Without the beat of a V8 or whoosh of a turbocharger, engineers had to define what an all-electric Mustang would sound like.

Inspired by classic ‘80s sci-fi cinema, Ford sound designers worked with the studio Ozone Sound to craft electronic oscillations that emanate in and outside of the Mustang Mach-E while the vehicle is in motion. These new sounds inspired electronic artist Matthew Dear to remix them into a song called “New Breed.”

Listen to “New Breed” below and scroll down for a making-of video chronicling Matthew Dear’s process and for the clips Dear used in his remix.

In the remix, we can hear some of the propulsion sound that is meant to help keep drivers engaged without the V8 rumble or turbocharged whoosh of the 2-door Mustang. In previous posts by Mach-E Vehicle Engineering Manager Robert Iorio we learned that the different driving modes of Whisper, Engage, and Unbridled will have different propulsion sounds played through the Mach-E’s sound system.

For those who prefer, the interior propulsion sound can be switched off. However, the exterior propulsion sound is government-mandated to play up to 18mph or 30kph and cannot be turned off, though owners will likely find a way.
