    I attended this show and spent some time talking to Ford staff on the stand. Some feedback from them re Mustang Mac E
    1. This is an SUV rival aimed at the electric versions of Audi Q7, BMW X5, Jag F etc
    2. Ford don’t have a “high class” badge except Mustang - so they are using that name
    3. It is being built in Mexico - batteries from Poland
    4. First deliveries target is October
    5, Aim to have 1500 delivered in next 12 months
    6. Drivers have to adopt a new approach ie keep the battery fully charged. Unlike a petrol tank which most tend to run down close to empty and then fill up
    7. Recognition of issues around speed to charge​​​​​, availability of charge points, variations and transparency of costs of charging by Ford
    8. It seemed to me to meet the design brief ie a large five seater SUV with lots of storage and luggaspace
    9. The top of range is extremely fast accelerating - especially above 60+

    For your interest attached, hopefully, are a photo of exterior and more interesting a proof the interior​​​​​​.

      I don't like the big screen in the centre of the dash, looks out of place.
      Don't like them using the Mustang name, guess it's the way forward though.

        Yes I think that screen would get on my wick eventually as its right in your vision and very large.

          I hate bright screens in cars at night, causes me grief. Unfortunately for me basically all cars have them nowadays, I have to put them on the dimmest setting.
