It looks like a slightly retooled Ford Focus to me.

That doesn't look anything like a Mustang.

I won't. I just thought it was interesting. What were you expecting guys? An exact replica? It's kinda Shelby looking on the front, has four doors and it's electric. I hate the back end.

They're calling it an SUV. Mustangs are pony cars they're not SUVs

Had a Ford station wagon once, but it really came apart quite easily. The tailgate flew open, some windows cracked & others shattered. Even the battery failed and the body was a complete mess. I haven't had a Ford since then, nor have I been hit by a trailer truck in a blizzard since then.

Good that you survived RV!
Now that my nostalgia moment is over, I remember clearly that FORD used to stand for Fix or Repair Daily.
It is kinda cute though but I would never, in a million years, fork over that kind of cash for any vehicle.

I learned to drive in a '47 Ford coupe. Every bad thing said about Fords is the truth! It was worse for models of those early years after WWII. Suspect

When I first came to Michoacan in 1975 in a Ford Fairlane I was told that that was the most luxurious car model allowed in Mexico at that time.

I had a Mustang around ‘77 or ‘78. Cute car. Deep brown with cream pinstripes and a cream vinyl roof and cream leather seats. What a lemon!

Mustangs sucked from 1972 to about 2010 imo.

Personally, I'm waiting for the Honda Fit Crosstar which has a hybrid motor and is much more practical.

I hear these hybrids are very difficult to fix and expensive to fix once they start going out on you.

Well, the Honda Fit Crosstar 2020 will be available in Europe in February, 2020. There it's called the Honda Jazz (not Fit) Crosstar. I will be watching. From what I've been reading, the hybrid is the way Honda is moving as opposed to Volkswagen which is going all the way EV. Options, I like options.
Looks sharp, five doors, loads of room and the magic back seats which fold forward or tilt up like a movie seat. Connected, air bags and incredible mileage.
I've started saving.

I have a 2010 Honda Fit that still runs like a jewel and is just right for these "two way" local streets that aren't. It has the magic back seats that fold down flat to create more trunk room than you'd expect. Best car I've ever owned! That new Crosstar sounds like a winner.

Do your back seats also flip up like movie seats? I know that the newer ones do (according to Spencer at S&S Auto). I saw this photo and thought "perfect car for senior toting wheelchair". You can literally put the front wheel up on to the car and pretend it's a higher curb to roll the folded chair in. Way easier than lifting it sideways into the back.

Yes, they do. Lots of room to load "stuff".
