Ford unveils Mustang Mach-E electric sport utility vehicle

Model Y vs Mach E

"That brand strength also connotes performance, which Ford is emphasizing the Mustang Mach-E, over the nerdy, environmentally friendly image that a Toyota Prius has, for example".

Will the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E be the bedroom wall pinup poster auto of Generation Z?

Arriving in late 2020 for the first edition (only 50,000 cars are expected to be produced globally in the first year) and with other customers expected to receive the vehicle in the first half of 2021, the auto isn't technically here yet.

And yes: It has a frunk! There's also a screen behind the steering wheel to keep drivers' attention in front (unlike the previously noted Tesla that only displays information on a center screen).

With Ford (F) debuting its Tesla (TSLA) rival - the all-electric Mustang-inspired Mach E SUV on Sunday - Elon Musk praised the for automaker despite the competition.

The company added that this is the first time in the Mustang's 55-year history that the lineup has been expanded beyond a sports coupe, convertible and special editions.

Starting at $43,000 for the base model and climbing to $60,000 for the GT and First Edition models, the Mach-E represents a significantly more affordable bill of entry for those looking for an electric SUV. "You don't mess with an icon", he said.

Unlike most electric cars, this Mustang will come with a distinctive sound, like its other models are known for.

The company unveiled the Mustang Mach-E Sunday night.

For decades, the idea of what a sports vehicle is and should be has been different depending on which side of the Atlantic Ocean you found yourself.

Pricing was also leaked ahead of time, and it looks like the different versions of the vehicle are indeed the below price tags, with the GT edition the highest starting at $60,500.

The high-tech doesn't stop there, either; the Mach-E features handle-less, latch-less doors that sense when you are near and illuminate a button that will allow you to enter the vehicle.

Prices for the more basic versions of this new breed of pony start around $45,000. So the Mustang gets all the electric glory.
