Have you ever wondered who would buy an electric car? Ford is pulling back the curtain and revealing some details about who their 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E customers are and what models they are reserving.

Ford has received reservations from buyers in all 50 U.S. states. Customers in the west and southwest, where cities are further apart and commutes are longer make up most of the customers who have ordered models targeted to reach an EPA-estimated 300 miles of range and come with rear-wheel drive. California, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, and Washington are the states with the strongest sales.

Residents of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire make up the bulk of the reservations for all-wheel drive models. In those states, more than 90 percent of buyers have checked that box.

The Mustang Mach-E GT grade remains popular with customers across the country with the trim level accounting for approximately 30 percent of all Mach-E reservations.

"Since revealing the Mustang Mach-E last November, we have seen a high level of interest from customers around the world. We designed the Mustang Mach-E with the aim to deliver an electric, guilt-free, performance SUV while providing peace of mind through our strong dealership network. Our strategy is working. With reservations from coast to coast in the US, we look forward to growing our reservations and delivering this SUV in late 2020," said Mark Kaufman, Global Director of Electric Vehicle Marketing & Distribution, Ford Motor Company.

The Mach-E's Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat is the most popular paint job in the majority of U.S. states. Indiana and Mississippi prefer Shadow Black while white is the most popular in Montana, Idaho, Hawaii, and Vermont.

Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,895. Deliveries begin late 2020. Click here to learn how to reserve your Mustang Mach-E.

The EQB lands this summer with a not-so-bad starting price.

Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz is pressing ahead with its electrification goals. Following the release of the EQS flagship electric sedan last year, the automaker is readying the EQB, an electric SUV with up to seven seats. Today, Mercedes announced pricing for the vehicle, and it's surprisingly reasonable. Two trim levels will be offered for the EQB in the United States: Exclusive and Pinnacle, and wecould see an AMG variant at some point down the road.

The EQB comes in two variants, including the EQB 300 and EQB 350, both of which come with all-wheel drive. The EQB 300 offers 225 horsepower and the 350 delivers 288 ponies. Those aren't super-serious numbers and they don't have to be. The EQB competes with vehicles like the Volkswagen ID.4, so mind-blowing performance isn't exactly the goal. Mercedes hasn't given range estimates yet, but they should fall in line with the competition.

The SUV comes standard with a 10.25-inch configurable digital gauge cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen. Mercedes includes a good list of standard safety features, including lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, and active brake assist. Additionally, the EQB's navigation system routes the vehicle for the best efficiency and can help locate charging stations.

The 2023 Mercedes-Benz EQB 300 starts at $56,800, including a $1,050 destination charge. A range-topping Pinnacle trim is available for $59,350. The EQB 350 starts at $60,350. Mercedes says the SUV will go on sale in summer 2022.
