Report: Non-Electric Mustang-Based Performance Crossovers Coming

Recommended Posts

Just seems to me if they really want to hit at Tesla, they should just call it Model E!

They did that already-Ford has the trademark for the Model E name-thus why its called the Model 3.

The Mustang sub-brand is a reality. You, guys, need to accept it.

The models of Mustang sub-brand will be, by 2021:  Mustang coupe, Mustang convertible, Mustang hybrid and Mustang Mach E (performance electric crossover)

No official information, of course. Only logical deductions of what we are seeing so far...

Here's where you’re wrong. As always, Mustang and Mustang Convertible will be unchanged as far as they are seen in and out of the company. Mustang Hybrid (like every other Hybrid ford has ever done outside of the C-Max) will be treated as a trim level. Mach-E will not carry the Mustang name and once again, it's design is only inspired by Mustang.

Which is not a bad thing for Ford or the Mustang.

Exactly. Remember when the 2015 Mustang came out and people were bitching and moaning that the 2.3 was called Mustang EcoBoost? The hybrid is kind of the same thing and Mach E isn't even in that discussion because it won't carry the Mustang name.

Agree. Mustang design cues like the scalloped doors have made their way to other Ford cars before. This BEV may go a little crazy with them, but the Mustang is a good car to emulate.

...because it sounds to a lot of folks like an old jalopy -- like a "Model T"

Same reason naming the new Lincoln MKC the "Corsair" might not be the best thing (though it doesn't bother me). To some, it sounds too much like Corvair.

FTFY.   I'm 56 and I don't even remember the Corvair.

Hasn't hurt Tesla, with them all being Model __

Most people don't have any idea what a Corvair is.

My parents owned them as first cars-they are over 70 years old now.

I was thinking about advertising from the Model T to the Model E.....ahhh maybe that's corny.

I'll be 55 next week, and I remember riding in a Corvair when I was 3.

I remember Corvairs in my old neighborhoods, thought the "Monza" variant was kinda attractive...but mostly, they represent how big an bulky our attempts at copying European designs were.

Who cares what the name is as long as it sells. If it has some Mustang design elements I don't think that's a bad thing.

Agree that there isn't going to be a "sub branding" of Mustang. Really? Who makes this stuff up?

Next, we will see post of "return of Mercury Grand Marquis".

 

Also, the full size Ford sedan is dead. Unless Millennials demand them, but don't bet on it.
