Ford Shows Off Unique Mustang Mach-E Electric Door Latch System: Video - Ford Authority
Oct 17, 2020 1 min, 43 secs

These days, most all electric vehicles have ditched traditional door latches for fancy, electronic, integrated pieces.

That includes the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, which utilizes what Ford calls an “E-Latch Door System.” The Mach-E electric door latch system utilizes a button on each door that releases the door latch, which the automaker was keen to show off in this recent video.

The Mach-E electric door latch system is quite different from what we’ve seen from other BEV automakers like Tesla, which still utilizes actual door handles, albeit ones that fit flush with the body.

The door doesn’t open all the way, however – only slightly.

Just enough to grab the pull handle located inside the door and pull it open the rest of the way, though those are only located in the front doors.

Rear seat passengers have a grab pad on the inside of the door used to complete the process.

While this might raise fears of pinched fingers, Ford has designed the Mach-E so that once the doors are popped open, they cannot be closed again until fully opened.

Getting out of the Mach-E is much the same as exiting any other vehicle, as the occupant merely has to pull the level near the armrest to unlatch the door.

But it’s worth noting that Ford has designed the system so that even when the battery is depleted or completely dead, the doors can still be opened from the inside by pulling the lever all the way back.

We’ll have much more on the Mach-E soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage?

The Mach-E should have a mechanical backup, just as the Fusion does, and probably the gas Mustang, too.

That idiotic door system is a big reason that I won’t be buying a Mach-E?

What if your in a tight parking space and can’t fully open the door

And if you put a portable 12v thingy on the grill contacts you still can’t open the door
