    Mustang Mach E Is The Name For the New Ford EV

      ....A Mustang SUV you say?...

    Ford has announced the name of their upcoming Mustang inspired electric crossover.  It will be called the Mustang Mach E.  The official debut happens on November 17th, after which reservations for the car will be opened for customers wishing to make a deposit.  Deposits are $500 to hold your place in line and later, customization of the vehicle will open closer to delivery time. 

    We've seen from previews of the Mustang Mach E that it will be a rather swoopy crossover with a coupe like roofline. Current rumors put the estimated range at around 370 miles on the WTLP cycle, but EPA cycle will likely be lower. Ford also recently announced the creation of the FordPass Charging network, a way to take the worry out of range anxiety.  We expect we'll hear even more about FordPass Charging Network at the November 17th presentation.

    I wish they didn't use Mustang name on the crossover.  "Mach E" would be cool and sufficient name by itself.

    I don't like them tying the identity to the Mustang name...will be very polarizing.   Will it have parking lot crash mode for running over pedestrians? ;)

    (I love Mustangs, grew up driving them...but Mustang for me means 2drs, RWD a V8 and manual available...this is something completely different).

    I figured it was going to be called Mach E from previous intel, but am surprised they are explicitly calling it a Mustang.  'Mustang-inspired' I could see, but a Mustang 5dr CUV EV?   That's radical...

    Haven't larger vehicles with four doors outsold coupes for the last like 50 years? 

    @balthazar you can probably answer this best.

    Ahhhh good point. I guess I didn't even catch the "mustang" part.

    Yeah, I don't like that tie-in. Mach-E was bad enough. 

    I get it, but I don't like it.

    Yes, 4drs always outsell 2drs..since the beginning of time.  But the idea of a 4dr Mustang CUV...well, that's something else....

    It will be interesting to see how GM fanbois react when Chevy eventually has a Camaro 4dr CUV EV or Corvette 4dr CUV EV...

    I was just stating that it's nothing new for larger vehicles to outsell coupes. 

    They do but they were smart enough (in my opinion) to not name it "Camaro Blazer".

    Yes, which I wasn't saying.  I was remarking on how a Mustang CUV will probably outsell a regular Mustang, as these are CUV-crazy times... it's the naming aspect that makes it different than just 'larger vehicles outselling coupes'.

    Horrifying is a good term. I get that.

    Uhhhh... the only way I see that is if they have had a second vehicle as a daily driver and they want this as well.. It most certainly is no replacement.

    That would make sense.  Electra is the perfect name for an EV.   

    Using the Mustang name just seems like a cheap, cynical marketing stunt.   Why not give this new, unique product it's own identity?  Or relate it to an existing crossover like Edge.   If it fails, it will tarnish the Mustang name.

    Totally agree with you on this.

    I hope that marketing folks at GM are taking a hard look at new product names for the EV's that come out over the next few years and NOT reuse old ICE names except for the Buick which totally makes sense to me.

    You could have a whole Buick Electra Family EVs based on the name.

    High school buddy of mine had a '69 light green Buick Electra 455 big block, man she was a torque monster, pulled pretty hard when you stood on it from a stop nice floaty but solid Caddy-like ride being based off the Eldorado at the time it made sense. Room for at least 4 people in the back too.

    Anytime someone got in for a ride they had to give him 5 bucks for the thirsty old girl, no joke! She was always in the red or on fumes :roflmao: 

    Identical car here...

    My buddy's car was his grandfather's car.  Another friend had his grandparents' sweet 1980 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d' Elegance.   Triple silver.     Both were in great condition, even in the salty island climate of the Florida Keys.

    Better the Keys than up north where the road salt would eat the car alive after a couple of decades or less.

    Yeah, growing up I split my time between NE Ohio and the Keys (my folks had 3 houses at one point) ...saw so many cars that were seriously rusty when they were only 5 years old or less in Ohio...lots of rust in the Keys because of the salt air.

    Anyway.... I'm hoping the 370 mile range... or close to it... turns out to be true. That would make it one of the longest range EVs out there.  The Model X only does 325 miles.

    Yes, regardless of the naming, if it achieves 370 mile range with good performance and drivability then it could be a very interesting product....but I wonder what the price point will be...will they price it like a Mustang GT or a Shelby?

      NEURON EV

      CES 2020 has been a busy place this year with more auto companies showing of prototypes and finally production ready auto's than ever before. We have seen so much including the latest in super dense solid state batteries for the EVs to motorcycles and bikes.
      This year we now get to see the latest competition to Tesla and Rivian in a well funded California / China based EV auto company called NEURON EV. This company has a swiss army knife of a truck/suv auto as well as a Semi truck that they say is going into production in 2020.

      The truck which is seen here in Silver has a sister truck that was running around the streets which is the following Black T-One.

      All the details you could ever want can be found here on this truck: https://www.neuronev.co/new-products/t-one-p-gyrwr
      The cool thing about this modular truck is that is can be more than a truck, a tractor, a van. there are no limits to how one can configure up this beast of an EV.

      The seat options are an interesting take as you can go like how Tesla showed their Semi with a center driving position as a base 3 seat configuration of 3 captain chairs, or a single drivers captain chair and a bench seat behind for 4 people and go from there to cover a wide range of colors, materials, etc. in customizing your auto. 
      While this company is looking at this modular truck and semi for the US, in china they will have many more auto options including their V.E.G.A. or Versatile Electric Grand Automobile.

      The company has great plans and while they have only two models for the US market, China will get many more that includes a medium duty truck, a bus, a MAP or Multipurpose Autonomous Platform focused on shipping yards, a HUB or autonomous transportation auto, in addition to the car, semi and truck.
      NEURON EV has not released any details about their hp / torque other than to say class leading at this time. Two wheel drive and All Wheel Drive will be the choices folks will have and talk of a base 300 mile range battery pack. More details are to come later this year.
      First Press release of 2020 can be found here:

      At an event is Seoul, South Korea yesterday, Genesis finally unveiled their new GV80 luxury SUV.  The overall look of the GV80 has been leaking out on the internet for months, but we finally get the full official release now.
      The interior and exterior of the GV80 is designed with a common thread to give a familial look with the G70, G80, and G90.  The GV80 introduces a new quad headlamp design that will eventually filter out to the other vehicles in the Genesis lineup. The crest grille first seen on the G90 is here too. The interior of the GV80 focuses on the "beauty of white space". The designed accentuated the width and space of the of the interior with wide horizontal lines and thin air vents.  In the center is a 14.5-inch split screen infotainment display. Genesis intentionally limited the number of hard buttons and switches for aesthetic reasons. The GV80 comes in either 5-seat or 7-seat models. On up-level models, soft materials cover every surface from the inside of door handles to quilted knee pads that line the lower sides of the console.  The transmission selector is a dial in the center console. The integrated controller can be operated by an onscreen keyboard or by handwritten letters. 
      Trips in the GV80 are designed to be stress-free. It gets equipped with a Road Active Noise Cancellation technology to reduce road noise. The system is one of the advanced and fast responding systems in the world. The electronically controlled suspension with road preview helps maintain a smooth ride by recognizing road imperfections ahead via a front camera.
      The GV80 is based on a unique new rear-wheel drive platform, while all-wheel drive is available.  In South Korea is till be equipped with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine while the U.S. will get a choice between two unspecified turbocharged engines. All-wheel drive models in the U.S. will be equipped with an electronic rear limited slip differential.
      There is a host of safety and driving assistance technologies in the GV80 including Smart Cruise Control with Machine Learning, Highway Driving Assist II, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Blind-Spot collision Avoidance Assist, Rear cross-traffic collision avoidance, and driver attention alert warning. In the event of a collision, there are 10 airbags, including a center mounted airbag between the front occupants. 
      The 2021 Genesis GV80 will go on sale in North America later this year.

      At an event in Vail, Colorado today, GMC took the wraps off the 2021 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.  As before, the top of the Yukon lineup will be the Denali trim, but joining the Denali for the first time is the brand's new AT4 trim which is a more off-road ready version.
      The Yukon gets an all-new interior while the Denali gets its own exclusive version. The Denali instrument panel is completely new and there are also unique seats  and four color themes.  Real wood trims with a natural look and texture join with a Denali only leather, hand-stitched interior.  For the driver, there is a 15-inch diagonal multicolor heads-up display.  On the Denali, AT4, and SLT trims, there is an available power sliding center console that allow the console to slide back up to 10 inches offering a large storage area. 
      Joining the lineup is the AT4 version. All GMC nameplates except the Savanna will be getting an AT4 version by the end of this year.  The Yukon AT4 gets a unique front fascia, and body color or dark accents around the outside, and a pair of red recovery hooks on the front.  The AT4 can be ordered with a four-corner air ride adaptive suspension that can raise the vehicle an additional 2-inches. The air ride system also lowers the vehicle 0.75 of an inch when at speed and can lower the vehicle up to two inches for easier ingress and egress. 
      Also included in the Yukon AT4 are at two-speed transfer case, 20-inch wheels, traction select system with off-road mode, hill descent control, skid plats, AT4-exclusive leather appointed seats, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, and heated outboard second row seats. 
      The 4th generation of GM's magnetic ride control is available in certain trims. Also available is an electronic limited slip differential. When in 4WD low, the eLSD operates at full lock to prevent wheelslip. 
      The Yukon will offer three engine choices. An all-new version of the 6.2-liter V8 that produces 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque is a buy-up option. Standard is the venerable 5.3-liter, updated with new stop/start technology and dynamic fuel management which can allow the vehicle to run on as few a two cylinders.  Additionally, a 3.0 liter inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel joins the Yukon for the first time.  No matter which engine is selected, the transmission is a 10-speed automatic activated through GMC's new Electronic Precision Shift push-button selector. 
      Like the recently revealed 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe, the Yukon gains 4.9-inches in wheelbase and that leads to a big increase in interior room.
