This Is the New Mustang E, You Read That Correctly
I have been a Mustang guy since high school. All of my friends drove them, we worked on them, made them fast, and allegedly would race them around town. The Mustang has changed since its first introduction to the world. There were the dark times, when it got a four-cylinder engine and started looking like an old Honda named the Mustang II. Then there were the good times, when the 03-04 Cobra received a giant roots-style supercharger on top.
Now, Ford has decided to expand the Mustang brand and get into the electric world by introducing the Mustang Mach E. It's a play on the Mach 1 name, but that's about where it stops in looks for the new edition. It's now a four-door SUV, and Mustang enthusiasts are losing their mind that it is carrying the Mustang name.
Obviously, things must evolve as we grow but does this really show evolution? Some enthusiasts do note that a Porsche was built to be a two-door sports car, but now we have more models of Porsche SUVs and four-door vehicles. When you think of it this way, it becomes a bit of an easier pill to swallow. The top of the line model features all-wheel drive, while the baseline is rear wheel and starts at just over $40k to purchase.
Top Gear takes us on a tour of the inside and out of the new Mustang Mach E.
