    I have a lot of time for Mr Pericak and there's no-one I'd rather have in charge of Icons.

    I appreciate this YouTuber's background is Tesla/EVs, but I think he missed a trick by not asking about forthcoming hybrid Icons. This, for me, is a very important and desirable stepping stone between pure ICE and pure EV cars. Whilst I'd welcome a full EV Mustang fastback, I'm even more interested in a V8+hybrid Mustang fastback!

    Full plug in’s are a PITA.
    Now Hybrid V8 would be awesome.

    He did ask Dave about a electric Mustang coupe at 3:30 but Dave said he love to comment on future products but " that's not going to happen" . The standard Ford comment anything in the pipeline or in planning.

    Oh, absolutely. I wouldn't expect Mr P to discuss any specific forthcoming model, but I'd have asked him something along the lines of "can we expect hybrid versions of the icons before we get the full electric versions". But, as I said, looking at this YouTuber;s other videos, it's clear his interest is in pure EVs, not hybrids :)

    I'm more interested in the future of ICE vehicles, specifically performance ones, from Ford. For instance, how much more of the GT500 will we see? Or does it all die with the introduction of the S650?
