Wow, I've got to say, that thing looks sharp. I think the Mach-E name is great, not so sure about the Mustang part...but from everything I've heard, it is a great car, and a first EV attempt by Ford. I was surprised to see the first delivery!

Totally agree, branding a Mustang is controversial, but the car looks great (range and charging curve underwhelm a bit). GM really needs an answer to this, ID-4, and Model Y before its too late. This is one of the reasons I am less than enthusiastic about the Cadillac Lyriq, which is a beautiful car in its own right, but not aimed at the volume part of the segment. GM desperately needs to do a straight up competitor to the Model Y, that at least match Tesla on the main specs (275+ miles range, sub 5 second 0-60, AWD for $55K) if for no other reason then to prove they can compete on manufacturing cost and EV tech. It is like the old Camry vs Malibu battle, GM messed around for too long with half hearted efforts, and so even when they finally built a Malibu that was a winner, it could not gain much traction in the crowded market. Same thing will happen in crossover EV's if GM does not hit some home runs out of the gate. GM better have an answer for the ID-4, Mach-E and Model Y in the pipeline that can match or beat those 3 on specs and or price. I am really worried the new Bolt, and Bolt EUV are going to be obsolete and overpriced before they hit the market.
