    A channel that literally has Tesla in its name is siding with Tesla. Shocker.

    everyone is siding with Tesla.

    they took a huge risk with the cyber truck style and branding and the thing took off. Roaring success. It’s unique, has its own identity, does everything well, and has cool surprises.

    tthe Ford electric SUV... is an SUV. confusingly named after a car. That’s it.

    It’s pretty much a non - starter compared to Cybertruck.

    Ford sells secret amount of “first editions.” Whatever that means and however many that means.

    meanwhile Tesla’s Cybertruck took over 250,000 deposits in its first two days of being announced.

    ford cannibalizes it’s most iconic brand and vehicle in order to sell an SUV.

    Tesla creates a unique product that can stand on its own and sell itself.

    One of these just created a market for itself. The other is so insecure, it doesn’t even take its first baby steps without trying to impersonate something else.

    I never thought I’d EVER say this... but Tesla’s marketing department just owned Fords. And it’s not even close.

    one slaps it’s own fans in the face to make a quick buck.

    the other puts you in the vehicle of the future.

    If it was just biased siding with Tesla for no good reason then I'd agree. But this guy is stating a whole series of cold hard facts about areas where Ford is literally years behind. For example sticking a large screen in this new car does not all of a sudden make them catch up with the world's leader in in vehicle operation software. There is video footage that was shot at the ride alongs after the intro where half the screen wasn't even working and people were explicitly told not to touch it. If this car is supposed to go into production in August then they still have a hell of a job to do. I hope for anyone who actually buys one that the OTA update feature works because boy are they going to need it.

    The fact that they trying to pass this off as a Mustang is a betrayal to the brand and every Mustang owner on the planet. Simply beyond retarded. For that reason alone I would already refuse to buy it.

    Otherwise I think it's at best an okay-ish first try by Ford, unfortunately proving that they have a lot of catching up to do. I applaud them for trying, but I boo them for their insecurity in branding it.

    It’s a rushed product, with hopes that stealing a cool name saves it.

    What Mustang? I don’t see ANY Mustang in that picture.

    What I see is a collaboration between VW and Ford - and that ME is clearly a VW in disguise... No?

    Well, take a look at the draft CAD images of the Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Matrix (MEB) skateboard chassis architecture, also referred to as the VW ID.3:

    https://www.carsales.com.au/editorial/details/volkswagen-id-3-clocks-up-10000-pre-orders-118430/

    https://www.carsales.com.au/editori...wo-electric-cars-based-on-vw-platform-120682/

    So after looking over those CAD images, you tell me how a VW ID.3 is a Mustang... it’s NOT... and Bill Ford was a fool to have Farley and Hackett coerce him into thinking it would be a grand idea to dilute the Mustang name and history...

    sorry, no, I don’t see any Mustang in any image of the ME.

    what??? How dare you insinuate that a foreign EV platform isn’t a real Mustang!

    didn’t you see the pictures of that SUV that blustang and ecovert post every five minutes accompanied by the word “Mustang?”

    didn’t you see that horsie thing on the gri... er... FRONT of the suv?

    what’s wrong with you!?

    looks like designs for an awesome looking CAR that didn’t work out as an attempt to apply on an SUV.

    Ford has even shot themselves in the foot, exposing what the Mach E looked like before they slapped “Mustang” on it.

    it is a very bland, generic EV SUV that has A new costume. Oh and some new shocks, so that Pericak doesn’t leave.
