  • Ford unveiled an electric Mustang SUV called the Mach-E. With up to 300 miles of range, and a price tag that starts at $43,895 before incentives, the company’s first mass-market EV looks like it will be a popular premium electric option when it goes on sale in late 2020. The Verge’s senior transportation reporter Sean O’Kane was in Los Angeles to experience the new EV up close.

    Agreed, I don't take calling it a Mustang lightly. It isn't a Mustang. It's not an electric motor powered Mustang. It's not a Mustang regardless the propulsion. Maybe it has Mustang suspension, but...
    Ford, read the comments.
    How basic can it be?
    Who's in charge here?
    You get how many $ a year?
    You're turning potential customers away before the thing is even in the showroom.
    Let America provide a name. I suggest Huey. Its almost exactly like a Huey.

    Half of the people on here talking mess will either end up owning Mustang Mach e or will know someone that does as they're sitting on the passenger side or back seat of their co-workers or best friend's ride. Ford is not worried about what you think? The have a company to take into the future so please leave your complaints and concerns then.

    now that now have ruin the name of Mustang, Just simply change the name of the car to a" Colt" we would love to see this. All Mustang lover unite.

    I own a 2017, eco- boost Mustang now, and I personlly think you could have called it another name other than Mustang Suv.
    If you need a new style of ford, make the cars without a boxed front in. BIG enough for a family of 5. You have degraded the name of
    the most wonderful car to own in the world. If you wanted to make a different Mustang, make the sudan over again, and give it the
    same look as when it came out in 1964. Diana Gorman.

    I think Ford will do well with its ELECTRIC pickup too! People will want to avoid that mean Tesla military cyber truck, and that is not even legal on the street as shown. Unless it is not bulletproof, not scratch proof, the Tesla truck will only be appropriate for military and police use. Even if it’s legal, general public will be in danger from other regular people driving the darn cybertruck!

    From what you are saying it sounds like the only way to open the door is a code on the door panel or a smart phone. I do not like NEEDING my phone to unlock my car. Cars should not REQUIRE a phone to operate, it should only be an option. It is nice to have a code on the door, but it needs a key fob like most cars have.
    Other than that, I LOVE IT! Sporty fast SUV without the soccer mom feel. The GT package is as fast as the Shelby 500, so yeah it's a MUSTANG!

    I like it and Im a mustang guy that’s actually my favorite car. I’m pretty excited about it’s a different approach. And plus if it doesn’t sell well they can just stop making them after 2020 and it can be like a collectible car or something. I think it’s good for Ford and it’ll bring them new target Customers.

    This is great news they are the first from big auto besides tesla that actually seems serious about electric good and thats exactly why Tesla was founded to push the market to electric and its starting to do so great news i still prefer Tesla but i know a lot of people will prefer the mustang and thats great news i hope electrify America is also serious about their superchargers network because that's the most important thing to fully transition to electric

    It's going to flop just like Tesla ......they had electric cars 100 years ago, they had steam cars 100 years ago........they aren't practical dammit, that's why they didn't last and they won't last now.....gas and diesel are cheap and reliable and that ain't gonna change anytime soon....accept it.

    -I really hate the giant tablet /computer that faces you inside. Couldn't they get that inside the dash somehow to at least give you the feel of sitting inside a Mustang, not a Tesla.

    It looks pretty good, at a reasonable price for an EV depending on what you get. I have no problem with calling it a Mustang: they are running commercials calling Mustangs sports cars so I guess anything goes.
