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.

Honda teases its first EV

The Prologue will go on sale as a 2024 model.


Honda is nearing the unveiling of its first electric vehicle, the Prologue, and today the automaker gave us our first glimps of the new vehicle. It's just a sketch, but Honda did share some production details and information on its product roadmap.

Honda DealerHonda plans to sell half a million EVs by the end of the decade. Honda

Honda says the Prologue will be an adventure-ready SUV "capable of satisfying everyday driving and weekend getaways with a strong hint of the well-received Honda e in the front fascia." The SUV was developed in Honda's Design Studio in Los Angeles, and was designed with an eye on Honda's global EV models. Honda said it focused on aerodynamics and fine-tuning the body to reducelines and improve range.

The Japanese automaker developed the Prologue alongside GM, but it has other EVs coming to market by 2026. By 2030, Honda says it will release 30 new EVs globally with a production volume of two million units. The co-developed vehicle is the first, but the rest will be built on Honda e:Architecture. In 2027, the automaker will begin building and selling a line of affordable EVs using the architecture developed with General Motors. Honda says it plans to sell half a million EVs in North America by the end of hte decade.

Lincoln will not make a performance variant to compete with Cadillac.


TheLincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade have been duking it out at the top of luxury SUV rankings for decades, but there’s one area of the Caddy’s development that Lincoln won’t touch. In a recent interview, a company executive told Ford Authority that it has no plans to create a performance variant of the Navigator to compete with the upcoming Escalade V from Cadillac.

2022 Lincoln NavigatorThe new Navigator features several upscale touches and excellent tech. Lincoln

That means the Navigator will stick with the powertrain it’s carried for years, which is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that makes 440 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. It’s paired with a smooth ten-speed automatic and either rear- or four-wheel drive. While there’s more than enough power to get the hulking Lincoln moving, it’s not a powertrain that inspires excitement or engagement, and though beefy, it’s tuned much more for comfort and quietness than drama.

Though more than adequate, those specs are a far cry from the numbers we expect from the Escalade V. The full-size bruiser from Cadillac is expected to get a supercharged 6.2-liter V8, similar to the unit seen in the CT5-V Blackwing and Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. We don’t know power numbers yet, but the engine should deliver horsepower and torque numbers in the high 600s.

Cadillac Escalade VThe Escalade V will be massively powerful. Cadillac

That Lincoln is taking a different approach isn’t surprising. The automaker has already announced its intention to go all-electric, so pouring more time and resources into creating a performance gas-powered SUV isn’t in line with its goals. Company executives have also expressed a desire to avoid imitating rivals, so the decision to leave a performance Navigator behind is not surprising.
