The Mach-E haters are REALLY going to hate this. From the Mustang Club of American FB page.

From our President, Steve Prewitt:

I had the unique opportunity to see, touch, and review the new Mustang Mach-E in Los Angeles this past weekend. As Ford’s entry into the electric vehicle market they have done an astounding job in checking all the requisite items. This includes 5 models to choose from, styling cues reminiscent of its namesake, and an impressive portfolio of performance specifications. This new vehicle is not a replacement of the Mustang Pony car we have known and loved for over half a century. The two door Mustang is going to be around for many years to come. It will retain the raw power and styling that have led to modifications allowing us to make it unique to the individual. The two door Mustang is still the car designed to be designed by you and that is exactly what the Mustang enthusiasts will continue to do. Make no mistake, the Mustang Mach-E is not a Mustang Pony car in the typical sense, but it is a logical move in continuing the legacy of Mustang, specifically in design and innovation in the electric car market. The Mustang Mach-E is the next step in defining a new addition to the family just as was the fastback in 1965, the MACH 1 and BOSS 302 in 1969 and 70, the Mustang II in 1974, the Fox Body in 1979, the SN95 in 1994, the Bullitt edition cars and on and on. I remember the outcry in 2015 that the new Mustang looked too European and like a Fusion to ever be accepted by the Mustang enthusiasts. It would be the end of the Pony car as we knew it. That body style continues to evolve into one of the most loved Mustang editions yet. The Mustang Mach-E will not be for everyone. Many traditional Mustang enthusiasts will never accept the car simply because it is called a Mustang. That notwithstanding, there is a market for this vehicle, and I anticipate it will do well. I have always been reluctant to condemn something new or reject change until the full impact can be observed and evaluated. Some call that a wait and see attitude. It usually serves one well.

I can feel their anger already lol. But in all seriousness this is pretty cool that the President of the Mustang Club of America is getting on board with this.

Agreed. I think it's just going to take people time to get used to the idea.

I would LOVE to see the Mach E powertrain in a Mustang coupe though. Hopefully that comes soon.
