That interior is not what will make the Mustang EV popular. It's the "EV" part, and the Mustang name.I don't think the Mustang is ugly, I do admit that it is different and takes some getting used to but hell times change...I look at it as being simply Ford's way of trying to keep the Mustang name alive...so far it appears to be working, a generic Ford EV wouldn't have generated the buzz that the Mach E created.
Times change, but all change isn't good.
Really, how is a touch screen, even a big, tacked-on monstrosity like in the Mustang Mach EV, better than traditional control surfaces? It hard to improve on a simple, spring-loaded button. You get tactile feel that doesn't even require you to take your eyes off the road. You can't feel for a button on a touch screen, and even if you could you'd end up making unintended changes. Cadillac is going in the right direction, adding buttons to CT4 and CT5 and having both controls.
It's like when you see the occasional concept car with a joy stick or levers instead of a steering wheel. But some things can't be improved upon and cars still have steering wheels. They're perfectly matched to human physiology to control a car. No matter how pretty some touch screen looks, buttons still actually work better even if they're not "cool."
Yeah, I sound like an old man, and I am getting there. But there are constants in life.
