Aug. 26, 2021—Students at a Michigan community college will be getting an up-close-and-personal look at the Ford Mustang Mach-E.

The Advanced Transportation Center at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor recently added the BEV to its vehicle stable, according to Wards Auto, as part of its auto technician training program. Students will be able to disassemble the vehicle's electronic components to get a better understand of how they work before reassembling them. 

“That Mach-E is a shiny new modern vehicle in all its glory, but for us it is a teaching instrument,” WCC Associate VP Brandon Tucker said. “We now have a real, live computer on wheels to work with. It’s also an opportunity to show students how the EV compares with internal-combustion engines, which remain a big focus of our training.”
