Ford’s all-new Mustang EV is different than any car that’s come before it — but some drivers are skeptical of its performance
American car companies are continuing to churn out new electric vehicles. But many are turning away from compact and affordable EVs in order to focus on the types of cars American consumers seem to favor: pickup trucks and SUVs. (The once-popular Chevy Bolt, for example, is being discontinued so that Chevy can use more of its manufacturing capacity on electric pickups.)
The latest example of this trend is a new car being released by Ford: an all-electric Mustang SUV designed to look — and, allegedly, perform — like a rally car.
Popular Science described the Mustang Mach-E Rally as “the first Mustang built for dirt and speed together [and Ford’s] first foray into all-electric rally racing.”
However, some of the car-enthusiast commenters on Inside EVs’ story about the EV were dubious about the new electric Mustang’s off-roading capabilities.
