The most important information of yesterday (and the entire week) was that Tesla revealed the Mannequin Y. After the presentation, we might even go for a trip within the subsequent Tesla CUV. However about an hour earlier than the beginning of this occasion, Ford tweeted one thing mysterious: a blue Mustang brand bearing the caption: "Maintain your horses."
Given the timing, it was laborious to not assume that Ford's tweet was a response to the disclosing of the Y mannequin. However it's not completely clear what was teased. The obvious reply could be the hybrid Mustang which Ford has introduced it’s going to see subsequent yr. However on the similar time, even when it's a hybrid plug-in with energy akin to that of the GT350, the hybrid Mustang will not be what we’d name a Mannequin Y competitor. , one is a two-door sports activities automotive, whereas the opposite is a totally electrical crossover.
Once more, this brand is equivalent to that introduced by Ford in a earlier teaser. On the time, we had assumed that the automotive within the examine was a hybrid Mustang, but when there may be an inside combustion engine below the hood, the largely stable entrance grille doesn’t give the impression of letting in sufficient air. It's a protracted shot, however possibly Ford is growing a totally electrical Mustang on the market alongside the hybrid.

It’s also potential that the automobile that Ford teases will not be a standard Mustang in any respect. Ford has introduced its intention to introduce an electrical crossover, initially known as Mach 1, closely influenced by Mustang design. And from the teaser we've seen from the again finish, it seems quite a bit like a Mustang with a much bigger greenhouse. It is sensible to tease your personal electrical crossover after one other electrical crossover, however we'll have to attend to see what Ford has in retailer.
