Jay Leno Reacts to Electric Mustang Mach E (Will it Pass the Test?)
Here in the performance community, it can kind of be tough to know what to do when we watch an iconic muscle machine’s name applied to something that borrows nothing but the looks from the original. In the case of the Ford Mustang, we’re talking about the most iconic sports car in American history and when Ford decided to slap the Mustang name on an electric SUV, the community was up in arms to say the least.
So, once we get over the initial shock of Ford deciding to dedicate the Mustang name to something with electric power, we definitely have a couple of questions. The chief among these questions is, of course, is is this thing is any fun to drive. Naturally, Ford owes it at least that much to make the performance edition of its Mustang Mach E something that is a blast to hop behind the wheel of.
