Mustang Mach-E

The name is kind of dumb, and the styling is sort of generic crossover (though well rendered). But the specs are pretty compelling.

Does this still exist? I thought the current administration put an end to this.

Mustang? From a marketing standpoint, what a strange choice in cars to transform into a crossover.

Still exists... not sure how many are left for Ford since the Focus Electric qualified, and I believe the Energi-class plug-in hybrid version of the Fusion and C-Max also qualified.

I like it!!!!

It's pretty ugly from the front though.

I also don't get why they turned it into a sort-of crossover, yet kept it RWD. Why not make it an actual mustang... or an AWD suv? How many people want RWD crossovers?

I also like that more non-sucky EV's are coming. Seems like a win all around. (untill we discover that the batteries give us cancer or something)

Except for the front end it's actually not bad looking, for a mommy wagon kind of thing.

I assume this is supposed to compete with the Model Y, assuming that ever comes to the market? RWD only does seem awfully odd.
