The new all-electric Mustang Mach-E GT may be a capable battery-powered option but for anyone who is in love with the smell of petrol, there's nothing in terms of aromatic indulgence. But Ford has a solution - a gasoline car fragrance unit!

Ford says this fragrance, called as Mach-Eau, is for those who crave the performance of the new all-electric Mustang Mach-E GT yet still hold a fondness for the evocative smells of traditional petrol cars. In a survey commissioned by Ford, it has been found that one in five drivers miss the smell of petrol when swapping to an electric vehicle. It goes up to almost 70 per cent who claim they will miss the smell of petrol to some degree. The smell of petrol has been ranked as more popular than the scent of even wine and cheese.
