Evos is also on there. Interesting.

I wonder if Thunder is their version of Ludicrous mode?

Re: Mach-E trademark...

I wonder if Ford has the perfect name for an Electric or Hybrid performance truck that would make sense...? Oh, wait, Lightning! One of the most iconic F150's ever and still talked about today. It's time to bring back the F150 Lightning and electrify it = perfect match.

I just posted on another board that maybe they'll come out with a new F-150 Lightning, and the Ranger version could be Thunder. Haha.

Not a crazy idea about electric+Lightning name.

Yes, Mach-E Mach. Wicked pissah.

That would also make a great commercial. Mach-E in for an audition for a commercial and he starts going on how the cah is wicked fast and wicked efficient and wicked ho-aht. Then he could say he doesn't know why Fahd wanted him for the commercial. Then he walks around the back and reads the name: Mach-E!?! Raises one eyebrow.

Man, I should be in show biz.

Re: Mach-E trademark...

Whatever happened to the Model E name they had? I know Ford took Tesla to court over the name and won (hence they have the Model 3 now).

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.

What?!? Ford showing weakness by being intimidated by "T***a naming convention?"

Model A; Model T. It's Ford's naming convention. Ford can put the screws to T***a by fielding a Model E BEV. "F**K you T***a!!! I got Model E, NOT YOU!"

C'mon man, where's your fight?
