Why did you choose this electric car?

One of the things that first drew me to this car was the badge, an electric car with the iconic Mustang badge was controversial but I definitely think it worked. The styling is fantastic, I love the lights, the push button door opening, the illusion of looking like a coupe with the piano black roof, there have been so many great design choices going in to this car. I was also impressed with the mileage that this car achieves, I am not sure I will get to the 335 range that Ford suggests but I have had 296 out of it even though I use its acceleration to the full.

 

The instant power from electric cars would be very hard to move away from again. I also love how few of these I see on the road, it’s a definite head turner for both pedestrians and other drivers. Despite the controversy of the name, other ICE Mustang drivers wave or acknowledge me all the time, my Mach-E has definitely been accepted in to the stables.

The only issue I have had is the door opening actuator on the passenger door, it should push the door open when you press the button. New part is on order.

Keypad entry so you can open the car without the keys or lock keys inside if going for a run or swim so you don’t damage or lose them.

What electric car are you interested in next and why?

Mustang Mach E GT – my current car is amazing, why not just go for more power and active suspension or an Audi e-tron, as I think it looks gorgeous.
