Where it stands: "The new vehicle, which is also now rumored to be called 'Mach E,' has been spotted a number of times in recent months in testing camouflage," The Verge reports.

  • "There’s been speculation that it will cost around $50,000, come in short and long-range variants, and be available in rear or all-wheel-drive configurations," their piece adds

What's next: Via CNBC, Ford plans to have the vehicle available in U.S. and European dealerships next fall.
