I like it. The pics of the one with a faux grill look even better. Most folks aren't ready for no grill I've found. Now, the rank and file Mustang fan is losing his freaking mind over this thing being called a Mustang.

Frankly, if they slap a Mustang emblem on it, then it's a Mustang. Life's too short to fight losing fights like that. Ford is late to the game. I've heard that they, "not only dropped the ball, but someone kicked it away and they can't find it" when it comes to producing electric vehicles. Even my folks, who at 82 bought a Model 3 even they own close to a dozen Fords would have bought a Ford had something decent been available. I'm not calling my Focus even "decent" in terms of a product competitiveness in anything other than price these days. The Model 3 is nice. It's fast. It's the market benchmark.

Me? I'll probably get one if I don't get an electric F150 or a Cyberpunk Truck. If I get an "e" it'll be a GT or top of the line version in a year or so.

Well over a year ago I attended a market survey event for this car, comparing it with a Tesla Model 3, Kia Niro (kind of funny, the EV Niro wasn't out yet, so they had a hybrid that they wanted us to believe was full electric) and the Chevy Bolt. I was very impressed with the Ford. Also amazing is that the car they showed us was remarkably close to what Ford just unveiled.

I like it a lot. And if I didn't already have my Model 3, I would be very interested in buying one. Will be really interesting to see how well this does in the market.

Well I have one reserved whatever that means in Ford speak LOL

(Looking at the reservation FAQ: You give your $$ to Ford, they don't guarantee anything and you get your $$ back once you've placed an order with a dealer. So what does putting in a reservation get me other than loaning Ford $500?)

I know people are riled up about the name but from everything I've seen so far Ford has done everything right to make a solid electric vehicle to take on Tesla. The Mach-E has the range and performance need to rival them and I really like the design, especially wit the faux grille.
