Ford Mustang Mach E

Looks like a 2-door I-Pace on the outside and a Tesla 3 on the inside. I'm sure it will find buyers but I'm happy with my FE

Weird car. LOL. It's like they tried to mash together a Model 3, Mustang, iPace, and CX5. Knowing Ford it will have questionable quality for the price.

Be careful of spec comparisons. I've seen claims that the Premium has 300 miles of range and 0-60 in the mid 5 second at a price of $50,600. That's picking the best specs from three variants.

The reality is the $50K version has a range of 230 miles and 0-60 in the low 6's. To get mid 5's 0-60 you have to add AWD and the bigger battery (ER). The 300 mile variant is ER/RWD, but the 0-60 climbs to the mid 6's. And of course AWD and ER cost thousands more $$.

Ford took cues from it's formerly owned/stakeholder companies. They took design cues from Jaguar I-PACE and Mazda CX-5.

It looks...interesting...but where does the “Mustang” come in at all? Interesting branding choice.

Jalopnik has a good write up ahead of the official release in a few days:

Meh...
It was just plain wrong to use the Mustang badging on it. First problem? Mustangs are "affordable" (Starts at $27k) cars except the supercar variants. Yeah, I went there! A 2020 Mustang GT350/GT350R/GT500 are supercars. They have both the power and handling required to be in the class, they just don't have the price. It's one of the most potent 2+2s sold. Not sure how they compare to the lethal Camaro ZL1 1LE on a track, but I bet the 350R could at least hang with it on very tight tracks.

I'm not a Mustang fan, but competitors have running them against me for decades. The newer models are very fast in the right hands. But in there lies the irony of the modern Horsepower Wars. Driver skill is on the decline, racetracks are closing right and left, and NOW we get some serious firepower at affordable pricing.
To put it in perspective, with skilled drivers, nothing mass-produced by Ferrari will keep up with a Camaro or Mustang on a track.

Crazy, NPR just had a piece on All Things Considered about this car. It's interesting to hear interviews with various stakeholders and enthusiasts ... it's all about nostalgia, and therefore about compromise in design. Too bad. Also, they're hyping a 300 miles range. Yeah right. Nonetheless, I'm happy about another entry into the crossover market.

Seems like a fine electric car - but probably the ugliest Mustang ever made ... I think they're gonna anger the Mustang lovers more than associating the name with that car will draw. But, I could be wrong.
