The appeal of the Mustang Mach-E is that it features new cutting-edge technology while still capturing the spirit of Ford. Ford fans have some strong opinions on the Mach-E.

Harold Baggott has fond memories of learning to drive in a Ford Model T. The British gentleman is a lifelong Ford fan and has purchased several Ford models throughout his lifetime. He has encouraged family members to purchase Ford models as well. As a way of thanking Baggott for his brand loyalty, Ford offered him the opportunity to take a step into the company’s future. Harold started with the Model T and now he has driven the Ford Mustang Mach-E over a half-century later.

According to InsideEVs, Harold was amazed at how quiet the ride was during his Ford Mustang Mach-E experience. He was excited to witness firsthand what future generations of his family would be driving. Harold has embraced the electric future and is intrigued by the industry’s latest major transition.

Harold Baggott has experienced every major Ford development for decades both as a fan and a driver. Despite experiencing the golden age of internal combustion engines Harold is eager for Ford’s newest vehicles. If a 101-year old man can adapt to the changing industry, I’d say the electric future is in good shape.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E premium trim provides the most value. The Premium has great estimated range, is quick, and can be affordable after tax credits. The Select trim provides great value as well but 230 miles of range is on the lower end of the range spectrum in this age of EVs.

The Mustang Mach-E is an amazing electric SUV and one of the best EVs of the year. It is helping to usher in a new era for Ford. If 101-year old Harold Baggott can wrap his head around the Mach-E, even Mustang purists should be able to make the adjustment eventually.
