FordInsideNews used the name “Model E” for the Mach 1, maybe it ends up being “Ford Model E”.
Now that I can get behind!
THE reason why Tesla had to use Model 3. Ford would not let go of the trademark rights to Model E.

Tesla was going for Model S Model E Model X and Model Y. Elon, you nasty boy!

Now it'll be just:
Model S Model 3 Model X and Model Y....

However at this moment the lineup is:
S3X

You beat me to it :)

Without going off topic, I like the name Corsair. It was last used here in the UK on a re-styled Ford Cortina. Whilst I have no objection to this being used for the MKC replacement, I'd rather it was the rumoured Lincoln-Stang. I still think a next-gen based luxury Lincoln 2-door coupe would be a great halo-car for them.

But, in a world where Ford might be prepared to throw away the Mach 1 name on an EV SUV, I really can't see it happening :( The one glimmer of hope is that the above article mentions a suicide door Continental, so perhaps rumours of the current Continental's death are premature. If a next-gen Continental could share the CD6 RWD architecture.........

Hmm, interesting. Maybe Ford listened to the backlash and decided to name the electric mustang Mach 1 while naming the SUV something else... after all, they DID say they were just testing the waters with the name for an SUV

Maverick seems a good name for a small SUV, and it's ben used in overseas markets for such in previous years. I do so hope Ford has paid attention and puts the Mach 1 name where it rightfully belongs, and not on the bathroom door.

I don't think they did, "Mach 1" is still the name they "tested" for the electric crossover (There's not any good source confirming otherwise). Also, the "electric Mustang" is nothing but a rumor.

Me too.... I just hope they don't use it at all.

Depends on whether we’re talking “electric” or “electrified”. A hybrid Mustang, which Ford has already said WILL happen, would be considered electrified.

I think a hybrid mustang being called "Mach 1" would be awesome... much better than "Mustang Hybrid"

Exactly, I said about it being a rumor since jake_zx2 mentioned an "electric" Mustang (as in Battery Electric Vehicle ala "Tesla"). The Mustang will be FHEV (or PHEV depending if it's plug in or not).

I'd love to see a Hybrid Mustang called Mach 1, but most likely they will use the "PowerBoost" moniker as someone suggested in here.

I have a feeling this is a play for secrecy and to bring along the Mustang faithful: What's worse than an electric/hybrid Mustang: and electric/hybrid Mustang that's not even a Mustang! Then when they release the Mach 1, and it turns out to be a very efficient car that stomps about everything on the road, even the V8 purists can get behind it. Does anyone know if the new 10 speed has provisions for electrification?

It does. Expect that the F-150 Hybrid and the Mustang Hybrid will both be based off the 10AT.

Fixed. The problem is that some of the V8 purists are also ICE purists. 99% of the time I can't use the speed, but I can always hear a great sounding engine.
