On Sunday, November 17, Ford introduced the Mustang Mach E, a version of the Mustang you’ve never seen or ever dreamt about before.

A Mustang We Never Dreamed About

This weekend, Ford unveiled the Mustang Mach E, an all-electric version of the Mustang we know and love. Though the design is a little different than expected out of a Mustang, it’s form-fitting for a brand that is doing their best to put their toes on the line next to Tesla. The general design of the Mach-E has been floating around the internet for a while now, which didn’t exactly help Ford’s case towards building a better future in electric vehicles.

Let’s look into the details of the Mach-E and see what car lovers think about it now that it’s making its way onto the production line.

Inside the Mustang Mach-E

Though the Mustang has always been a sports car, the Mach-E is a crossover SUV with four doors and two electric motors. With an estimated 3.5 second 0-60, a time equivalent to the Porsche 911’s 0-60, and 459 horsepower, the Mach-E is exactly what many have wanted out of a reasonably priced SUV that packs a punch. Starting at $45,000, the Mach-E looks like it could rival Tesla’s Model Y, if just by a small margin.

Mach-E Tech

The extravagant 15.5-inch screen that controls the usual things like volume and settings found on the dash column could potentially be used for controlling other UI features down the road. Under the display is a wireless charger which is handy when plugging in or Bluetoothing in through a phone. But the inside tech isn’t the only thing that makes the Mach-E a little strange for classic Mustang lovers. There are no traditional door handles, just touchscreen-like buttons alongside the window columns that pop open the doors.

Since the Mach-E is so different from the traditional ‘Stang, Ford did its best to give it back some of the V8 noise traditionalists love. Ford created 30 sound profiles for this electric rendition before settling on one engine noise that’s a mixtape of an electric motor and the sound of a sports car rev. Just music to our ears.

What Does the World Think About Going Mach-E?

Shipping out in 2021 means there is plenty of time to make changes along the way to a finalized product, but Ford has molded the Mustang into something a little more than we ever expected. Many are excited for this all-electric crossover at a decent price, but others aren’t sure how they feel about calling it a Mustang after so many years of it being a true sports car. When in doubt about how the public feels, set your eyes upon Twitter to find out.

Though we love the look and feel of futuristic vehicles, the jury is still out on the Ford Mustang Mach-E. Since it won’t hit the streets until late 2020 at the earliest, those that sign up now will wait a while to see just how the Mach-E compares to the likes of Tesla. But like everyone else, we’re excited to see where the Mach-E takes the industry as a whole.
