Over the weekend, Ford officially unveiled its first foray into the world of fully electric vehicles: the Mustang Mach-E.
The Mustang Mach-E is an all-electric sports utility vehicle that will be offered in a plethora of different trim levels and variants. But if you’re an Apple user, one of your first questions may be whether an available trim includes Apple CarPlay?
Does the Mach-E Have CarPlay?
In a word, yes. The Mustang Mach-E will sport a new Ford-developed Sync 4 infotainment system. Sync 4 will support not only Apple CarPlay, but wireless Apple CarPlay too.
That’s notable because the number of vehicles currently on the market that actually have wireless CarPlay is fairly small.
The CarPlay-supporting infotainment system itself is pretty feature-packed, too. At the center is a large 15.5-inch vertical touchscreen display that will undoubtedly draw comparisons to Teslas.
That display will house the Sync 4 system, which supports intuitive gestures like those you may find on a smartphone and can manage everything from climate settings to vehicular controls.
It’s worth noting that all trim levels of the Mustang Mach-E will sport the Sync 4 system, which should mean that they’ll also all support wireless CarPlay.
There are also other gadget-centric features that will make any tech user happy. That includes a Qi-enabled wireless charging pad underneath the display, as well as a USB-A and USB-C port for all of your wired gadgets.
As far as when you’ll be able to get the Mustang Mach-E, Ford says that it’ll start shipping in “late 2020.” You can preorder one now on Ford’s website, however.
The Mustang Mach-E is undoubtedly cool, but it won’t exactly come cheap. The least expensive Select trim level will start at $43,895 (although there is a federal tax credit available for buyers).
