Last month we reviewed the portable charging cords OEMs provide with their North American electric vehicles, and the results were wild. We gave Tesla’s Gen2 UMC an A+, Audi an A, Nissan a B, Hyundai a D, GM a D-, BMW an F, and Jaguar an F-. Now we have our first look and some exclusive details about what Ford is calling simply the “Ford Mobile Charger”. Based on what we know so far, we can confidently predict an A rating, but probably an A+, and we may have to level down all the other OEMs besides Tesla. And Ford is including a couple of extras that Tesla doesn’t.

Ford’s Mustang Mach E electric crossover is a big deal for the auto industry. There’s no denying that an iconic brand like the Ford Mustang getting rebuilt from the ground up with a compelling electric makeover is a historic moment in the movement away from ICE vehicles.
But how we got to this point is just as important as this vehicle. And what I’ve found out after a few weeks of Ford interviews and research is that much of this Mach E Mustang was inspired by Tesla.
In addition to the livestream and media drives/information we’ve been given, Ford has released some footage of the vehicle and we’ve assembled a YouTube video running down the key points of the electric crossover SUV.

It is hard to imagine a bigger milestone in the transition away from internal combustion engines than Ford’s iconic Mustang going electric. The Mustang debuted in late 1964 and has symbolized the American sports car, speed, and the pleasure of the open road in the 55 years since. Sure, in recent years, the Mustang might have grown a little stale with its loud, polluting combustion engines that don’t come close to the performance of electric motors from Tesla and others.
But today Ford made it official, the Mustang is going electric with the “Mach-E” nameplate.
