It is fascinating times for large and fledgling auto companies willing to take a shot at manufacturing the next electric vehicle. Its where smaller operations are hoping to make a claim and big car makers are directing their dollars.
Mustang is one of them. This year, Ford Mustang Mach-E was awarded the best utility vehicle in its class by North American Car, Truck and Utility of the Year (NACTOY), a non-profit jury consisting of 52 members and considered one of the most prestigious of the auto journal in the world.
It is the first time Mustang manufactured a utility vehicle. They’ve been a convertible since 1964. Marking their name on an all-electric vehicle helped with exposure, Jack R. Nerad, vice president of NACTOY says.
