The new 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E is a new all-electric crossover suv, and it's a potential game-changer not just for the automaker, but also for the industry. But so much discussion about it has focused on its Mustang name and SUV market segment.
Whether or not you think Ford should be using Mustang in the name of its new electric five-door, and whether or not you think this is an SUV or a car, is irrelevant. We're not sure about either, but that doesn't detract from this vehicle's merits. Whatever it is, it looks a little bit like a Mustang, with the classic shark-nose front end, long hood, prominent haunches, and tri-bar taillights with sequential turn signals — but it could easily stand on its own as the Ford Mach-E. It doesn’t need Mustang in its name. And while it offers available all-wheel drive, with just 5.1 inches of ground clearance, it’s no more an SUV than a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. Forgive Ford such transgressions in the name of marketing. And head to the next page to discover the 10 things you need to know about the new Mustang Mach-E.
