I watched the Ford video event last evening about the new Mustang Mach E SUV- very interesting. The vehicle apparently can be driven in 2 wheel drive and AWD
Idris Elba was the announcer, both he and his father worked on the Ford assembly line in the UK - he said his father didn't want him to be a poorly paid actor..... Idris did a great job getting the crowd to react and make noise.
About 40 minutes was spent by the design teams at Ford, and Bill Ford, and the CEO discussing the creation of the new Mustang Mach E. About 3.5 second zero to 60mph acceleration, so pretty quick off the line, about 300 mile range ( range is a function of temperature and accelerations chosen by the driver of course )
Nice looking vehicle with seating for four passengers and a driver - very large LCD display in the center of the dashboard ala Tesla - but Ford has obviously spent a fair amount of time and thought to the driver- vehicle - information screen interface - I think they called it Synch3. Great effort was taken to allow most driver actions to be done with just one touch of the screen with or without voice commands. Nice!
The interior of the vehicle is clean, uncluttered, and modern looking with a large central display approx 15-17 inches in height. It has a frunk, of course, and a rear hatch as well.
I will have to go look at one once they are actually sitting in my dealers show room.
Any one else watch the announcement last night??
Did any readers here order one last night on line?
Order one online - how Tesla-esque is that ?
Ford stock ( equity ) price is unchanged this morning.
Tesla is down about 2 bucks, but that's just noise for Tesla's stock price..
