    I hope this will be one of the five remaining Ford Performance vehicles.

    Interesting. Does that mean the car will get heavier?

    This will be with the Gen 7, which will be on a new platform.

    Only Ford knows right now.

    I suspect any weight savings made with S650 will be offset by the hybrid power train.

    All Aluminium body should save some weight for hybird, battery might be lighter and more powerful

    In addition to this, the 700 new jobs were added specifically for electrification/autonomous vehicles. The CAFE regulations and market competition drove this decision in conjunction with promises of lower tax rates. Nothing more, nothing less.

    No. It will be made from space iridium that weighs only 0.6oz per 10sqft.

    Hopefully this new hybrid model has bumpers and hoods that actually fit properly...

    The 3.5 TT already makes V8 power WITHOUT any hybrid tech. I think that tells you it WON'T be that engine.

    You realize Ford made the decision to build a hybrid Mustang probably years ago, correct? There is a lot of engineering that goes into determining the feasibility of new vehicles.

    Now Cars & Coffee can involve electrocution, too.

    Hell they probably already started round tables on the Hybrid Mustang before the S550 was launched. With big businesses, the work never stops, projects over lapse each other, risk and analysis happens YEARS before it's even mentioned to the public.

    Just sounds like yet another thing to go wrong. I think this just solidified my choice in grabbing an S550 before the S650 hits. That was a pretty poor choice of words saying "V8 like power". Pretty much hints at that not being a V8 and most likely a V6.

    All I can say is, have fun replacing that battery when the time comes. It will be interesting to see the brave ones to test this first year it's available.

    While I agree, ford did say the "GT" was designed and made in a year as basically a last minute thing.

    So it sounds like my 3 year old son who currently drives an electric power wheels Mustang will be able to drive one with the same type of propulsion system when he gets older. Better tell him to start loving that sweet electric motor whine instead of daddy's V8 rumble.

    I daily a C-max plug in hybrid. I plug in twice a day. Once at home, once at work.
    I love that I can go 1,600 miles between fill ups but I hate how frumpy the car looks.

    The all electric driving experience is great for commuting and I love the instant torque of the electric motor. I hate the CVT transmission in the thing and how it sucks any passion for the ICE engine experience.

    I am also concerned about battery life. In my experience with the C max I have lost 1/3 of the all electric range in 50,000 miles. I think this is because the battery is air cooled. I hope that Ford builds a water cooled battery for the Mustang.

    IMO the platform should not loose the V8. I would hope that they would build a 4L V8 that is rear wheel drive with spindle motors driving the front wheels and a 10-12kw water cooled battery. I would think this combination would go 0-60 in 3ish seconds. It would also give you 100 mpge. It would look good doing it too.
