Mustang Mach-E: the hype is real

ਨੂੰ ਪ੍ਰਕਾਸ਼ਿਤ ਕੀਤਾ ਗਿਆ 4 ਫ਼ਰਵਰੀ 2021
ਦ੍ਰਿਸ਼ 291 976

Ford’s electric Mustang Mach-E is a huge bet on the future, and after spending a week with the EV, The Verge’s Sean O’Kane thinks that bet will pay off. It’s fun to drive, solidly built, and puts technology front and center without messing it up. It’s the best electric car on the road not made by Tesla or Porsche, which is a huge deal considering the project was only spun up a few short years ago.

    Electric Mustang or V8 Mustang?

      V8 any day, who would even think of considering an electric mustang over a good ol v8?

    Wish I knew the sale figures for Mustang models because, I have a theory Ford sells more V8 models than V6 models. If they sell more V6 models, then I think they have a good chance to be successful at using the Mustang moniker. Not sure Mustang V8 buyers will take to it, despite the good 0-60 time. On the other hand, if the overall vehicle execution is good enough, the name recognition might serve to bring many people to the Mustang fold who may not have previously considered one. Your experience (and people’s reactions) seemed quite positive. Hope it portends success for Ford with its first mass market EV.

    Why can’t there just be one charging network supported by every car manufacturer? Petrol/diesel cars can fill up and pay easily at any fuel station - why wasn’t the first thought to make an open network for electric cars too?

    Not a mustang, I think 99% of actual mustang goers don't consider this an electric mustang. This vehicle is pretty cool, but an electric mustang? no. A mustang is a two door coupe. This is just an electric crossover, much closer to a new Ford Edge.

    The problem of the charging stations is solved in the EU with regulating both by having a single universal plug and that all charging stations must have an option for buying power for all cars. So, should the US also regulate this?

  • Raj

    I think EVs are the way to go but if I buy a car, it'll be the Mustang GT, this is a great car but without that coyote vroom vroom a Mustang just doesn't feel like a Mustang. Still tho for what they are offering at 50k which isn't too cheap but not too costly either I think this is a great car.

    Yikes - this design is awkward and clunky.
    Calling it a Mustang trades brand value for short-term gimmickry.
    Physics dictate that a crossover cannot match a traditional coupe in handling dynamics - so why christen it a sports car?

    3:51 ugh, this old FUDy duddy. Tesla makes impeccable cars. Cherry picking a few dozen issue cars vs. the 1.5 million Tesla's on the road is a shady thing to do. I own two Model 3's, both are incredibly well put together. And Ford has been 100 years and STILL can't make a perfect car: see the 10 recalls in a single year for the 2020 Ford Explorer.

    I just think right now everyone (automakers.) should just invest into Tesla charging components. Just so there isn’t so much landscape. Or at least plan with while developing revolutionary chargers. Like apple with lighting cord then moved over to USBC.

    I think the Mach E is also a great knock off of the Lamborghini Urus. Or same concept idea. Lambo is know for sports cars not SUVs. And I think it was a good move by Ford. Why not play around with the future. Def a good way to focus more on design. Less parts to RnD and push forward into the future.



    11 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ

    Before we go any further. Verge, please let Ford know. They could have been a little more creative with their driver display. Yes. It would make the Mach cost more but it would be worth it and boost sales tremendously. Integrate it into the steering wheel like the McLaren Senna. And it flips up electronically either auto by driver configuration or when triggering different driving modes.

    -no over the air updates
    -very low range compared to better cheaper M3.
    I’d still get the tesla Model 3 or Model Y, rather than wasting money on this and regretting

    It was another brutal day on Wall Street for Tesla shares that stayed in the red for most of the day until a "Hail Mary" pass was thrown to pump the shares back up. After reaching out to a 40 year investor we were told, " Tesla was bleeding cash and on life support for the longest time. They had to raise money in a hurry, and needed to raise as much as possible, and as quick as possible. To do this, the shares are pumped as high as they can possibly go. Then more shares are sold into the market at this highly inflated price. Billions are raised, and soon after, the share price begins to retreat back to reality. That's just the way it goes." When asked about their "flying cars" their "hover cars", and cars that can go from 0 to 60 in under a second we were told, " What good is a car that can go from 0 to 60 in under a second when the car in front of you can't. Flying cars? Show me. It's BUZZ to create excitement. It's a pipe dream to keep the bag holders in check so that they can hold onto Tesla shares tightly as they tank down to reality. Go to one of their product launches so that you can hear 100 or so people scattered throughout the room chanting at the smallest reveal. Do you not think that they are paid plants invited to create this excitement?"
    We don't know how low shares of Tesla will go, but we do know that the competition ( Ford ) has introduced some very exciting cars that are selling like hot cakes while thousands of Tesla cars are parked on lots with no buyers in site. It appears that Tesla has all of a sudden become "Old Hat"!!

    I've had my Mach-e for a week. There's a lot of tech to wade through when operating the touch screen. iPod doesn't integrate as well when connected. Doesn't provide audio controls through the touchscreen. Steering wheel controls work. An iPhone completely integrates phone and audio controls. Another bug is when activating the FordPass Charging Network trial. The connection fails when activating the trial on the website. Doesn't appear to be a way to activate the trial through the FordPass mobile app. Dealer has yet to get back to me regarding the Charging Network trial. Learning about charging on the go appears to be a challenge. Although, a home charger is included with the Mach-e that will plug into a 220 dryer outlet.

    That is NOT a Mustang! I have no comment on whether it's a good car or not but that is a Mustang in name only. They could've called a Ford Focus a Mustang but that doesn't make it one. Regardless of it being electric, it doesn't even have the slightest evolutionary look of a Mustang. Each Mustang in the past you could see it had evolved from the previous version but it still had that Mustang look. Not this thing. I see no Mustang here.

    You would think that north american gas stations would be seeking to install charging stations and that there would be tax incentives and write-offs for doing that. I want an EV, and Tesla's most compelling advantage is the network of super chargers. I'd be really concerned about buying a non-Tesla EV simply because finding a charging station feels like a roll of the dice right now.

But why not put an electric drive train and motor on the S550 chassis. I honestly wouldn't think twice... but this. This just looks iffy to me. I mean.. it's a crossover with a mustang badge..
