    Ford's Mustang Inspired EV Crossover to Have 370 Mile Range

      ...we don't have a name, but now we have a range...

    Ford revealed during a debut event for its European electrified models that the as-yet-unnamed Mustang inspired electrified crossover will have a range of 370 miles when it arrives in 2020, but those are using the WTLP cycle, and the EPA range rating could be lower.  Ford has previously stated they were targeting a range of 300 miles, so a good guess for the EPA range would be somewhere between those two numbers.  Ford has recently trademarked the name "Mach-E" and "Mustang Mach-E". Could this be a name for this new EV crossover? Time will tell. 

    Earlier in 2019, Ford stated that all future vehicle will have an electrified version, something borne out by yesterdays unveiling of the 2020 Ford Escape with two hybrid variants. 

    Ford Puma Teaser.jpgFord also teased us with the Puma, a compact crossover set to slot between the Ecosport and Kuga, the Euro version of the Escape.  The Puma uses a 48-volt batter and a belt-alternator-starter system mated to a 1.0 liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine. No word yet if the Puma will make it to the U.S., but with pint-sized crossovers selling so well in the U.S., we'd not be surprised to see it here in the near future. (Click image to enlarge)

    Since I have gone to daily workouts starting last September, I have dropped 30lbs and 4 inches around the waist. :D Course muscle mass is growing so I do not expect to drop below my current 270lbs.

    Yes, something like that..every time dfelt mentions not fitting in a vehicle I think of an old 70s car ad or something that had a NBA player driving a VW beetle from the backseat (front seat removed)...

    I found a bunch of print ads w/ Wilt Chamberlain for the VW Beetle and Rabbit, but it looks like he's using the normal driver's seat...

      Lotus, aiming to rejoin the ranks of the supercars again is introducing a new limited production halo vehicle.  The Evija will be a fully electric hypercar costing $2.11 million each with only 130 copies made.
      The car is said to be capable of 1,973 horsepower from four electric motors and have a range of up to 250 miles.  Electric vehicles aren't known for being lightweight with their heavy battery packs, so Lotus is offsetting the 70 kWh battery's weight with a fully carbon fiber monoque chassis.  Lotus is confident that the car will reach the 3,704 lb. target weight. 
      The 0-62mph time is said to be less than three seconds with a top speed of more than 200 mph. The car can run at full power for 7 minutes on a track before the battery derates the power output.  With 350 kw chargers the Evija can be recharged from 0 to 100 percent in 18 minutes, however the battery is compatible with future 800 kw charger as they become available. 
      The design of the Evija is meant to evoke a LeMans racer, and it includes two venturi tunnels to reduce air pressure and reduce drag. The rear of the tunnels are fitted with a ring of red ribbon LEDs to look like the afterburners of a jet. The interior is quite minimalist with a rectangular steering wheel and a single pod of honeycomb shaped buttons up the center stack. It lacks the traditional center screen and instead uses the driver information screen for all feedback.
      Chinese auto manufacturer Geely bought Lotus in 2017 and the Evija is the first model launched since the purchase.  Lotus plans to build more models suited for the Chinese market, including an SUV.

      Ford is planning a dramatic change to their European lineup. Autocar reported yesterday that the automaker will be replacing the Mondeo (Fusion to us), Galaxy, and S-Max with a new "single crossover-style estate model" - think Subaru Outback.
      Not many details are known about this new model. It is expected to use Ford's C2 platform which underpins the new Fiesta and Focus. A range of gas and diesel engines will be available, along with 48V mild-hybrid system. The new wagon is expected to arrive in early 2021 in Europe. Autocar notes that this model is expected to be sold in other markets such as North America.
      While this model is quite different from three it will replace (a midsize sedan/hatchback/wagon and two vans), it is expected to outsell all of them. Last year, Ford only moved 50,000 Mondeos, 24,000 S-Maxs, and 12,000 Galaxy. Numbers according to Autocar that are too small to make any profit.
      As for the U.S., the reason is likely due to Ford to possibly keep sedan buyers in the showroom. Last July, we reported that Ford was considering doing an "Outback competitor" with the Fusion name.
