  • A "Charger man", that is unexpected....and I agree with the Charger Bias

  • Great video! I heard that the Ford Mustang Mach E will be a self driving car like a Tesla. I know that someday, there will be a self driving car with no steering wheel, no accelerator and no brake pedal. I'd like to have a self driving car, so that I can sleep, text and talk on my phone, be at my destination and go to bar to have a few drinks and not have to worry about drunk driving, since the self driving car will be my designated driver and drive me home. I hope that someday when vehicles are completely fully autonomous self driving, people will trust it. It would be nice to have a self driving car, then you don't have to drive at all. You can just sit back and relax.

  • I would consider this idea similar to that of the FWD Mustang fiasco from days past... OR it just might be a Ford Edsel moment, same thing. All the bean-counters are saying, "Build it!", the stylists "Build it!"...the demographic researchers in conjunction with the sales projection people, "Build it!"....hopefully there is a lone voice in those boardrooms, singing a different tune...

  • I don’t like the fact that they called it a mustang simply because it looks nothing like a mustang. It’s like calling a electric version of a mustang a focus it just doesn’t work. But I’m completely fine with the puma because they don’t still make the original puma

  • The mustang as it is, is not being killed. Thats the misconception, For better or worst brilliant move or moronic, Ford figure, they need something a bit more to draw attention to and sell this all together new vehicles. For many years Ford wanted to transition the mustang into something entirely different, a family sedan, a 4 door sedan, and every time the entire Ford buyer community fought back hard, to the point of near pitch forks and torches preventing ford from making that move, and every time form made an alternative vehicle that eventually failed, proving their concept was surely a false one. This time theyve chosen not to mess with the mustang sports car, but rather section mustang off as somewhat its own sub brand with its own fleet of mustangs. A stable of horses as it were. As such, the Mustangs sports car remains, The GT, The Shelby's ,and soon to come the inevitable Mustang electric sports car. And this is where the Mustang SUV comes into pay. They know the sportscar version must have either an all electric or hybrid offering, its just the fact of todays world. But the beauty of electric is that it can be applied across the board. As such. they Ford knows there are people that would love to have a sports car, but cant. love to have a mustang but having a family cant. Or simply they want something that in the mind of a mustang but they need something far more accommodating to everyday living. And they want it to be more sporty than your standard suv. Hence the Mach E. a way to have their cake and eat it too without getting raided by a mob with pitchforks. And this works well with the forth coming mustang sports car, because they will likely share components. Two separate platforms unrelated but sharing things like motors and tech. All with a brand that comes with at least some notoriety. The main mustang community doesnt entirely like the name being lifted onto another style vehicle, BUT its far better than say, Ford watering down the mustang platform to accommodate the creation of an SUV, which IS something to riot about. So Ford is going about it the best they can. OR they simply figure calling that new suv something all together new will not be enough to draw interest. As a mustang owner and fan, im actually swaying on the side, that theyve done a good thing. Just as long as they dont mess with the sports car. such a move would be a fatal error.

  • There piggybacking off the mustang name to get people to want it .the mustang didn't need a stupid electric crossover and its never going to be a mustang .it has nothing in common with anything mustangs stand for at all .its just a pathetic cash grab from people not creative enough to come up with a name .the mach 1 deserves a revival not this crap

  • Ok we get the point he is making about the name, but if you look at the Porsche they all tend to follow a specific look in order to fit within that framework. This so-called mustang doesn't even come close to looking like a mustang. It's not about the engine it's not about it being electric, it's about it not in anyway even distantly looking like the mustang. You look at this car and you think, humdrum family car great, but you look at a mustang and you think nice looking car that you might let your family sit in one day ha ha. What fords should have done is simply taken the original mustang added a little extra pizazz what they are known for, and made it electric, if you check out youtube you will see some one or two have done pretty much that and they look awesome. But being fords they could have done an even better job at a price that people could afford.

  • This is the second episode I've seen in this series, and I get such a strong impression that Harris loathes this chap. No eye contact, constant interrupting and a general sense of malaise for being there. And meanwhile the host is sitting there, firmly smug and chuffed. I don't get it. The awkward single lock-off camera angle doesn't help, either. I really like the concept of the feature, but it's an awkward watch.

  • It’s a good thing Chris can play businessman’s advocate. It’s a whole new dimension of discussion instead of just “Ewww I don’t like it and nobody else should!” Although that is always welcome for variety and laughs. He’s probably right that people would buy a Mach-E who want an electric family car but don’t like how Teslas look. Also the Mach-E has decent stats and the performance version coming so it’s somewhat sporty as a Mustang should be.

  • So, what are people complaining about? It's electric? All cars will be going electric in a few years, and performance ones will be first. It's the future. Get over it. It's has four doors? From the beginning, Mustangs have been about seating four people. Providing doors to access the rear seats is not a serious departure. It's a crossover? This is the only halfway legitimate objection. But, it's a very sedan-like crossover, so it's really not a big deal.

  • On side 1 you have real enthusiasts and purist who are disgusted of the idea of a mustang crossover, on side 2 most people (crossover buyers) who just want to fit in and look "cool". You and every car enthusiast focuses on the perspective of side 1, but the bigger side is side 2, and from that perspective, do you really think they will like the idea of a Mustang crossover? I think they wont, because ultimately to them it will accentuate the fact that they are poseurs, and that is one thing they dont want to accept.
