Despite saying that they don't like the Mustang name on an electric vehicle, buyers have eagerly been putting down a reservation for the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E. The Dearborn, Michigan automaker announced today that all of the First Edition models of the new all-electric crossover have been spoken for.

The Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,895 (excluding a $1,100 destination charge and any state or federal tax incentives). The limited-edition First Edition model starts at $59,900 and features similar specs as the Premium Extended Range AWD: 270 miles of range and 332 horsepower.

Among the reservations Ford has taken so far, Carbonized Gray is the most popular paint job with 38 percent of reservations choosing it. Grabber Blue Metallic and Rapid Red were second and third with 35 and 27 percent of the choices, respectively.

More than 80 percent of U.S.-based customers who reserved the SUV opted for an Extended Range Battery. That battery is expected to have about 300 miles of range.

Fifty-five percent of the vehicles have been equipped with all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is an uncharge, similar to how pricing works on a traditional vehicle.

Nearly 30 percent of all Mustang Mach-E reservations are for the Mach-E GT. The top-tier GT trim level starts at $60,500. For that price, buyers get all-wheel drive, 235 miles of range, 459 horsepower, and 612 pound-feet of torque. There's also 20-inch forged wheels, Brembo brakes, an adaptive Magnaride suspension, and exterior trim upgrades.

More than a quarter of all reservations have come from California.

AutomotiveMap recently rode in a prototype of the model to see if it is worthy of the Mustang name.

The 2022 Subaru Outback Wilderness is one of the Hyundai Santa Cruz's biggest rivals..

The 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz faces stiff competition from many vehicles that are already on the market and a few that are coming down the road. Part of figuring out what its biggest competition is, is figuring out exactly what type of vehicle it is.

Once you've done that, the deciphering gets a bit easier, but it isn't apple to apples. There's really no truck quite like it on the market today.

Subaru Outback

The utility of the rear space afforded by a wagon like the Subaru Outback isn't anything to sniff at. Make the cargo area a bed and you'll see why nostalgia plays long and hard for the Subaru Baja. The Outback and the Santa Cruz share many similar technologies, including all-wheel drive, but the Outback has something the Santa Cruz does not, a passionate built-in fan base.

Getting to the trailhead, then taking your car with you is something that the Ford Bronco Sport excels at. The surprisingly capable compact SUV delivers the capability adventurers are looking for, innovations overlanders love, and smooth ride over rough pavement.

Nissan Pathfinder

The freshly redesigned Nissan Pathfinder was meant to be more rugged. It also has three rows of seating (to the Santa Cruz's two) and seats eight, something you usually only find in full-size SUVs. Nissan has changed out the CVT for a nine-speed automatic transmission in this new generation, upping the appeal of the already-popular midsize family hauler.

Honda Ridgeline

The Honda Ridgeline shares most of its interior with the Pilot but has unique tech like an in-bed speaker system. It's trunk was no doubt an inspiration for Hyundai designers. What makes the Honda so sellable is its available all-wheel drive and overall comfort - two things that the Santa Cruz has as well.

Subaru Crosstrek

With its two engine options, standard all-wheel drive, and gobs of cargo space, the Subaru Crosstrek is primed for use in settings urban, suburban, and beyond. It's easily modified for more rugged endeavors with popular enhancements including a lift, knobby tires, a roof rack, and a brush guard. Subaru doesn't make a Wilderness version of the Crosstrek yet, but it's safe to assume that one is coming.

Ford Maverick

What is the Ford Maverick? Well, officially we're still in wait-and-see mode, but there's one thing for sure, Ford views the Santa Cruz as Maverick competition if for no other reason than it's a compact pickup truck.

While these five vehicles are some of the most obvious competitors, a solid list of aftermarket accessories could easily make the Santa Cruz even more competitive.

Hyundai has let it be known that they'd be into developing a more rugged version of the Santa Cruz if demand is there. What could that include? Take a look at what is on the Subaru Outback Wilderness for a good example of what upgraded off-road capability could look like. There's also some chatter about making an "N" version of the truck.
