Until they get battery duration and life to the newest technology it is still less cost to burn fuel in the car. The power company has to burn fuel to generate the power to charge the car. 

They do have the new Graphite batteries that the entire car can become the battery and will do a full recharge in less time than it takes to fill a gas tank. Watched a show on Nova on TV about the new battery development. 

I think they went to market on Nov. 15 didn't they. Got a blog from Hagerty the other day with a pic of one.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

It likely is a fine car but, it is NOT a Mustang and should be renamed. Chuck

 Totally agree. A Mustang is a Mustang is a Mustang..... nothing else!

 Rename it for sure, they have loads of redundant names to chose from, take your pick.

Years ago when Ford was considering replacing the Mustang with the Probe, fans flooded corporate offices with letters.  The shear volume of letters convinced Ford to back off.  Maybe its time to drop them a line.

A sale dudes prolly entered the design room with a bag full of mustangs, fiestas, teslas parts/picts and requested they'd all fit together by the next morning.

This unbalanced design mix should have an ugly duck on the front instead of a pony for sure.

Well, there's a few thousand members here for starters. 

I must admit, the car looks quite nice, but no way a Mustang.

 

A problem I have with electric cars is with the batteries themselves. Most, if not all the current ones, are Lithium based. Lithium is a dirty product to mine from what I was told. The pollution from mining Lithium (in China) is far worse than drilling for oil. While I'll fully admit I have not researched this myself, I do remember hearing that somewhere. Then there's the problem of getting rid of spent batteries, what to do with them. Add to that the enormous cost of replacement batteries. What about fire/explosion risk. There have been several Hybrid vehicle fires. So is it worth the effort along with the BS we're being fed by "Environmentalists" ?

The ONLY viable replacement fuel is Hydrogen and testing has been done, but there are many problems to solve here as well.

They could have named it something more synonymous with an SUV, like Bronco, which is supposed to be making a comeback next spring. Could be the Bronco-E3

Not a Mustang!  They would be beyond stupid in the current Muscle Car race to destroy and dumb down the Mustang name like they did the Taurus a few years ago.

 

How about Maverick, Comet, Capri, Falcon....  Oh that would be PERFECT, the new Ford Falcon!!

Talking about dumbing down the name line, remember the Ford 500, 10+ years ago. After the Fairlane and Galaxie 500s what a POS, lasted all of 3 years. The Ford board room boys and girls must have a short memory.

Please everyone tell Ford to change their moronic idea. I'm 23 and most people my age and younger understand this is an insult to mustangs in general. What unoriginal hipster idiot pitched this dogsh*t idea? Everyone let Ford know, I'm ashamed to wear mustang clothing in real life now, but I'll still love 1st gen mustangs.

I will tirelessly post this link in Germany..., maybe he does something.

 

In Germany, the presentation also triggered heated discussions.

I signed as well.

 

Nice little SUV (except for the iPad pro glued on to the dash) but a total abuse of the name "Mustang".

I'm not sure if this can be done, but there are three threads going at once on this subject. Just wondering if they can be combined into one? It would save a lot of time.

I too signed that "petition", but no idea if it has any clout. We'll see I guess, maybe it well depend on how many PAY the 2+ dollars to support it! I said I'll "share" it.

 

On last night's local TV News, they featured this abomination. Problem was the Newscaster is a total Petrol-head himself, owning a 60's Chrysler vert. and introduced the segment with a smile on his face....traitor! I didn't watch the video, turned the channel.

As i said in the other thread, too sad they are prostituting the Mustang name.

 

All this movement for electric cars with the pretext they are green. But what about all the mineral resources and mining that has to happen to make a battery. Now we will be destroying the earth to mine for lithium, cobalt, nickel, etc. Not only above ground but also below ground and the bottom of the ocean. In a few years we will hear the backlash. It is not that i am against the technology but it is not a "green" technology as it is made to be. It has its many issues that are not yet big or well known.

It shows me that Ford is out of touch with the buying market. Tesla has a doz. charging station in one spot near here. Never seen one used accept the Amish to tie there horse up too.

You guys are a little touchy on this one. Remember the first vehicle to be named Mustang was a truck and the other a bicycle. 

As long as they still make a 2 door Mustang why worry about it? 

When they were going to the front wheel drive and nothing else is when the Probe thing took place. The issue there was the fact that the V-8 and rear wheel drive would be gone.....

This is nothing like that. it is just another model being added using a name. As long as they make a profit selling the current two door Mustang cars they will keep making them. This is to appeal to the younger generations. They do not like the Mustang Car but will probably buy this one. 

There was a woman in South Carolina that got really upset when she heard that Ford was going to stop making the Model T in 1928. She was so upset that she ordered either 5 or 7 brand new Model T's. When one wore out she pulled out another. She never got through all of them and one brand new one sits in the Museum of Industry in Columbia, S.C..

I met the young guy now over the mustang at the MOM, Mustang Owner's Museum in Charlotte this year. I am sure he is the one that pushed the idea. Both him and Gale Halderman signed my copy of Gale's book. Current head engineer and the first engineer. I do not even remember his name, lol. 

That is Gale with the white hat the new head designer is behind the sign. 

I see absolutely no reason to write anyting to Ford. I did send a letter on the Probe thing and yes I ordered a mustang in 1973 when I heard of the coming changes. 

This vehicle changes nothing on the Mustang platform in my opinion. 

The Truck and Bicycle is why they called the Mustang a T-5 in Germany where the Mustang name had been trademarked. I think it was Krupp now Thyssen Krupp still big in automotive world in steel and mfg. that had the Mustang name first.

My wife saw a news article on the tube about it this morning. The look on her face when she asked me if I had heard about it said it all. Even when I told her the 2-door Mustang was still being built she didn't like it. She had a '68 Mustang fastback when we got married, that we both wish we still had, but life and family got in the way of keeping it.
