The Ford Mustang Mach-E is probably one of the most controversial new cars on the market. While there are many reasons to love an electric sports SUV, many Mustang fans are highly critical of sharing the Mustang name with something so unusual, a car that is not a Mustang. Would Ford be wrong to call the new electric SUV the flagship, or is there a reason we should be paying more attention to the Mustang Mach-E?
Mustang Mac-E itself
The Mac-E Mustang itself is a pretty interesting electric car, despite the controversy surrounding its name. With a starting price of around $42,000, it’s clear that Ford wants to enter the electric SUV market at a price that can compete with other, more established options like the Tesla Model X and is significantly cheaper than many other luxury options. The sporty look combined with futuristic headlights, an aggressive front skirt and sleek, sloping body lines make the crossover even more appealing. Still, it was easy for many critics to latch onto the car’s name.

The challenges for the Mac-E Mustang are numerous or could be numerous. On the one hand, first-time buyers may be more inclined to buy a more established electric SUV, although this doesn’t negate the car’s lower price advantage. As a first-generation electric crossover, buyers may be a little hesitant, as we’ve learned to expect a few quirks and problems when the car is on the road. However, there are no active recalls or real problems that potential buyers should be aware of.

It stands to reason that with many parts of the auto industry shifting to hybrid and electric vehicles, Ford would take the plunge and develop a car like the Mustang Mach-E. Overall, the idea of an electric SUV from Ford isn’t really a problem for most people, but rather the acquisition of the brand and the Mustang name. On the front you won’t even find the usual Ford badge, but a classic Mustang design, and Mustang purists seem to dislike this car for that very reason.

Classic Mustang fans may prefer to forget about the Mustang Mach-E and its future in the auto industry, but we can’t say we’re very disappointed. Even if it would have been better under a different name.
