Not what I expected the Mustang crossover to look like. It looks like the 3-in-1 car shape I was talking about last year. Similar to the Polestar 2 and Lincoln Zephyr rendering. Maybe it will be the base for the next Zephyr design.

Re: All About That Whitespace

Based on Fords idea that everyone want's an SUV for an 'image upgrade' it should look more lik the Edge, since it's the only vehicle Ford is not talking about adding a plug to.

Toning the sedan image down a bit and make it a fast back or 4 door coupe, and it would make a nice Fusion 200+ - 300+ mile EV that the market is waiting for.

I think this is pretty close.
Pricing will be interesting. Sustainability is key here, as is cadence. Too much EV too soon, flooding the rest of the market in next couple years, and you will be discounting like Tesla. But we all know Ford can ramp up quickly if the customers pivot in a few years and the demand moves from 1% to maybe 10%, so too few EV's is hardly a concern. They should cautiously error on that side.
