Ford showcases an escape room game built into the Mustang Mach E
Ford has revealed a concept for an in-car escape-room style game, which it says could help drivers familiarise themselves with their car’s controls. A video released by the manufacturer shows a Mustang Mach E presenting its occupants with a ‘spy game’ that takes those inside the car on a ‘secret mission.’ The challenge begins with a word puzzle, after which they’re instructed to drive to a location. Various pieces of equipment in the car such as the speaker system, the electric seats, power tailgate air conditioning and headlights are used as part of the interactive game, though only while the car is static.
