In late 2019, Ford announced the electric F-150 and the Mustang Mach-E. Let’s talk about the latter. There’s been a crazy amount of hype around the announcement of the…

Technology in all fields has taken an interest in improving our resource consumption while reducing humanity’s carbon footprint in response. The automotive industry has certainly followed, and electric vehicles (EVs) are no exception.
