Ford just took the Model E name so Tesla could not have it(S-E-X-Y). But Ford can't use it because it's part of Teslas naming convention. Ford may have used Model ? many, many years ago, but anything Model ? globally today belongs to Tesla if it's electric with consumer marketing.
It would be great if something called the Mach-E from Ford would be a next gen top of the line Mustang EV. But thats another two years out and looking at Ford's direction, it may just be a hybrid F-150 pick-up.
How do you know this for fact? Have you seen what Ford has planned for the future?
And even if they did, good, I'm glad. I could care less about Tesla.
And if this offends someone......on this Ford site......I cannot put into words, just how little I care.
