Ford has launched the Mustang EV which looks like a proper attempt.  "Everything Ford has done up until today in electrification was compliance focused"

But it's not a Mustang, is it.  Somebody forgot to look at the 'old one' before they started to draw the E-stang Sad

No it's not really a Mustang I agree, but it's a start for Ford

Agreed, it is a start by Ford and that really is a good thing.

If only they could have made it look like a Mustang is supposed to look and then they maybe they'll start to make inroads into a sector that loves 'muscle cars' but doesn't want to be seen driving a 'Prius/Tesla/Leaf/Zoe' (delete as you see fit) because of what they associate them with.

Hopefully that will come next Smiley

Keep up the good work Ford, we know you can do it.

I believe they say it's Mustang inspired. Not sure how the car that lead the way for cheap power for younger drivers inspires a SUV, perhaps it's that some of the design is inspired by the Mustang.

Also I think they wanted to 'stick it to Tesla' by using the 'E' that they trademarked about 100 years ago, and refused to allow Tesla to use, thus attempting to prevent 'SEXY' BEV's.  But S3XY will do.
