Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

What’s In a Name? Ford Calls Its New Crossover EV the Mustang Mach-E

Pathfinder Tags: crossover Ford Mach-E

For the first time since the model’s 1964 inception, Ford has put the Mustang name on a vehicle that is not – at least according to previous definitions – a Mustang. The Mustang Mach-E is a crossover electric vehicle with up to 300 miles of EPA-rated range and a zero-to-60 mpg time as fast as the mid-three-second range. Deliveries start in late 2020 for what Ford calls the First Edition models, while other trim levels will follow in late 2020 and early 2021. Interested buyers can put down a $500 deposit at Ford’s reservation website to get in line for their own copy.

Yeah, Ford forgot who their customers were. And it's been long enough for Ford to forget their misstep of the 70's.

Is it pronounced "Mach-E-bella"?

Call me a howling traditionalist then! This is not a Mustang even though its marketing will benefit from the name. IMO the traditional model's halo image will suffer from the association with an SUV.
