    It won't be received well because making an electric Mustang is pure blasphemy.

    Also it was already unveiled.
    I agree, I don't think it will go well with Mustang enthusiasts. They don't think any Mustang built after mid 70's to be a REAL Mustang. I had a 2001 Mustang 5.0, took it to Mustang City for parts and they laughed at me. Told me that's not a Mustang and they do not carry any parts for it.

    I didn't realize it was unveiled already. I vaguely heard about the soft launch months ago.

      IF I were to buy an electric car, that might be the one. I would never buy a Tesla or Prius.

        Being asked to support vs rooting for their downfall are two entirely different things. It is absolutely not patriotic to want American companies to fail. Personally I hate electric cars, but I still hope Tesla does well because they're American.

        If you want to talk standards then tell me how the Germans can't produce a car without some sort of fatal flaw, yet are still seen as the pinnacle of automotive engineering.

        2019 VW GTI and GLI are being bought back because VW can't figure out why the engine stalls on its own in both automatic and manual variants.

        e46 M3 is built on a rear subframe that may fall apart. Don't even get me started on their SMG.

        E90 M3 has bad rod bearings that can grenade the engine.

        996 Porsche's had IMS failures which can also grenade the engine.

        B6 generation Audi was a total disaster.

        Or, if you want to talk exploding cars there's no better example than the Mini Cooper.

        German made vehicles are just as problematic, if not more so, yet many Americans sellout in the pursuit of perceived luxury.

          Same here.

            It's pretty much a blank canvas at this point, doesn't have mirrors or window wipers installed yet. But even at this early stage it's more practical than most other large utes on the market.... and cheaper to run being electric.

                I agree. I also add that the one version that gets 500 miles to a charge is pretty impressive. I'm wondering when in the near future they will get it to 1000 mile range......

                  Electricity is free to produce now? And don't armored vehicles weigh more, requiring large engines that drive efficiency down rather than up, requiring more electricity to run? Or does this thing carry a large wind turbine and solar panels on it's roof?

                    And what the environmental damage of that kid of battery will be.

                    Hydrogen fuel cells would appear to be a better direction for research, with or without an associated electrical drive.

                      Why does a pick up need to be bullet proof in anything like a civilised society? And if the windows shatter if you lob cannon balls at them who cares? If General Mead was going to use them for battlefield logistics maybe but otherwise!

                                Yet ignore the reason why people have issues with fracking. The pollution from fracking spreads much larger area.
