Re: Mach I BEV Reveal Date

I was not sure where to put this topic. SUV, car, Ford discussion.......I am thinking that mods need to create a new BEV or Electrification group.

...I’m more excited about this car than just about any right now, except maybe CyberTruck. The Model Y is all fine and dandy and will be a good car, it just won’t have the style I hope to see from the Mach. Can’t wait to see it. Don’t let me down, Ford.

Re: Mach I BEV Reveal Date

Ford brass mentioned in their electrification meeting, that Tesla model 3 owners were asked if they would they trade it in for a BMW 3 series, if it were free. Nearly all said no thanks. They likened it to going back to a flip phone, after having an iphone. I think that got Ford's attention.

I hope "Mach E", which sounds like "Mackie" is not the final name.

Re: Mach I BEV Reveal Date

That's pretty much it. It incorporates the silhouette perfectly. The front end is identical to the images Ford shared. The rear 3-bar light treatment from Mustang is well showcased. It has sort of a new Puma stance, where it's SUVish height is hidden.


When Ford first showed a clay model of this to employees, I did not like it. This is much improved from what that looked like, and it is really beginning to grow on me.

At first I did not like the 'Mustang' look, but now I think it was brilliant. This would not look as good as an Explorer face, or the like

...people think you’re being a fanboy when you tell people how great living with an EV is. They just can’t imagine it is that much better. It is.

Well, I am sure BEV owners understand. It's easy to be sceptical and very difficult to change such old ways.

That said, I will surely weigh all factors when I consider a purchase when available. First and foremost will be price. I honestly don't care if these things sprint to 60 in half a second. Nobody should be driving like that anyway. And 200 miles or 300 mile range is way down on my priority list. I would not be traveling distance anyway.

That said, my wife will be needing a new lease in about a year when this launches. It makes a perfect second car for her. I will certainly consider it.

BTW, Ford said their plan is to be profitable with this car. Good news, but that suggests price will not be modest. I am expecting about a $50K starting price.
