Motion R Worked Their Bodywork Magic on the Mustang Mach-E, Here’s the Result

Although many petrolheads will argue that the Blue Oval’s Mach-E isn’t worthy of the Mustang name, we can probably all agree that Ford made a solid move with this crossover on the EV segment. When compared to a ‘Stang, the electric SUV looks like a distant relative that’s been subjected to some questionable plastic surgery, but it does bring a bit of freshness to the automaker’s range.

For the base Select RWD trim, the car’s twin electric motors will produce a combined torque output of no less than 317 pound-feet (430 Nm). 266 wild horses are also on tap, all of which are distributed to a rear-wheel drive setup. The whole shebang enables Ford’s EV to accelerate 0-60 mph (0-96 kph) in just 5.8 seconds, while its estimated range sits at 230 miles (370 km).

On the other hand, the Premium AWD variant is fully capable of summoning as much as 428 pound-feet (580 Nm) of brutal twisting force. This ruthless oomph reaches all four wheels to propel the Mach-E to 60 mph from a dead stop in as little as 4.8 seconds. Additionally, this bad boy’s range is comfortably estimated at a whopping 270 miles (435 km).

Now, the Mustang Mach-E might be a fresh face on the market, but tuners are already coming up with ways to enhance its understated aesthetics. One such enterprise goes by the name of Motion R Design – a revered aftermarket manufacturer that hails from Lancashire, United Kingdom. When it comes down to modifying Ford’s four-wheeled marvels, these auto experts will be more than happy to tackle just about anything from the Transit, to the almighty Ranger.

A little while back, we visited Motion R’s inventory to admire their accomplishments on Ford’s feral pickup truck. This time around, we’ll be taking a second to examine how these British aftermarket artists are seeking to make the electric SUV slightly more appealing in terms of visuals. To be quite frank, their intricate body kit is a huge improvement over the factory vehicle's despicable design!

At the front, you will find a custom grille bearing the tuner’s logo over three horizontal strakes. If the modifications were to end here, this vehicle would still look a hell of a lot better than its standard counterpart, but we’re just getting started. Below the grille, we notice a set of humungous air inlets boasting some serious widebody vibes to soothe your gearhead soul.

On the flanks, the reworked Mach-E was treated to a pair of enlarged fender flares on both ends, joined by beefy side skirts in between. Furthermore, the car’s rear fascia is neatly adorned by a sexy spoiler that sits beneath the window, as well as a chunky diffuser, which makes Blue Oval’s electric crossover look like it’s been hitting the gym lately. Motion R makes each and every one of these pieces available in either forged carbon weave or the traditional 2x2 carbon fiber.

Sure enough, no body kit is complete without a new set of shoes. As such, the Preston-based tuner teamed up with Quantum44 to obtain their Q44 Flow Forged wheels, hosting five pairs of V-shaped spokes. To top it all off, the Brits also worked their magic on the SUV’s interior by adding carbon fiber door panels and a flat-bottom steering wheel. As if that wasn’t enough, their customers may also opt for Nappa leather upholstery.

For the time being, Motion R Design hasn’t revealed any details on pricing or availability for their Mustang Mach-E package. We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for any fresh details on this creature!
