Artist Attempts To ‘Fix’ Everything Wrong With Mustang Mach-E: Video

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is, without a doubt, one of the most controversial vehicles introduced in years. And truthfully, the main reason people don’t like it is because it bears the beloved Ford Mustang name. Otherwise, the Mach-E is just an all-electric crossover with promising range and performance, and what’s wrong with that? Well, apparently a lot.

At least there is according to an artist named Marouane Bembli, or The Sketch Monkey, as he’s otherwise known on YouTube. Previously, Bembli has attempted to make the rear of the Mach-E look more like a Mustang, but this time around, he’s working on the front end. The idea is to imagine what the crossover might look like if it were based on the next-gen Mustang, an interesting endeavor indeed.

Bembli believes the front end of the Mustang Mach-E is a bit too unrefined and soft. He also doesn’t like the way the front fenders look, noting that they aren’t quite as sculpted as the Mustang’s. Throw in the grille shape and its requisite black trim piece, and there’s quite a bit to redesign up front.

Bembli starts out by sharpening up the edges of the grille to give it a more muscular look before moving on to do the same with the hood lines. He then lowers the headlights so they line up with the hood, and adds a couple of additional intakes up front to make it look more like the current S550 Mustang.

In terms of the overall shape, Bembli also decides to make the Mach-E a two-door (which we have already done), as well as lower it and give it a wider stance. Throw on a set of Shelby GT350R wheels, and, well, the result is interesting to say the least. As far as whether it looks better than the real Mach-E, well, we’ll let the masses decide that.

We’ll have more cool and interestingly videos like this to share soon, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for more Mustang Mach-E news and ongoing Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Basically you turn the Mustang MACH E into a two door coupe

  2. Jorge Esquinca

    Much better. It´s like an electric 4 door Mustang. I would buy that. The actual Mach-E, not in a million years. Not everyone likes SUV´s or Crossovers or is willing to buy one, no matter what. Besides, the Mustang has always been a car. Transforming it into an SUV, its an abomination.

  3. trailhiker

    Get rid of the tired old grille shape and try to make it lok more like a late 60’s Mustang

  4. Mark L Bedel

    Now that’s what I’m talkin’ bout!!!

  5. Ron Bearden

    Be careful or you might wind up with a cross between a Camaro & vet. Then your in trouble.

    Part of the problem is that Ford is calling the MME a “crossover.” At 5.7″ ground clearance, that puts in on-par with the rest of the Mustang stable (which is 5.4″). It is most certainly *not* a crossover. It’s actually more like a sport wagon (which may actually be worse).

  7. Jim Hardie

    Looks like Camaro with a Mustang logo, front rad area is UGLY

  8. Keith

    Looks like Lighting McQueen from the Cars movies.

    The Mustang should be a two door coup not an SUV. A this looks like a wagon, or you call it a crossover, or whatever you want. It’s something Ford could have stuck to old Taurus, or Escort or better yet a new name on instead of that of Mustang and should have. Heck Ford has plenty of 4 door cars they can have wrap this into. They could have kept with the horse naming thing even and called it a colt, pony, or maybe stallion. It’s like they said hey lets make a car that looks like every other EV suv and slap the Mustang name on it to help it sell. Better yet add Mach because those were our popular nostalgically sporty version that evoked the speed of sound. IMHO the esthetic and expectation of what the name Mustang Mach has not been met with this car.

      You are absolutely right! I have never seen an uglier car in my life! I include the Pinto, Pacer, Maverick and Yugo in that list.

  10. Ron Bearden

    That’s beautiful and reflects a true Mustang. Ford is loosing their style and should remember why the Mustang design has kept our interest. The Bronco has proved the old can look new again without sacrificing looks. Please don’t call things what they are not, like the Mach E. Don’t trash an icon with this SUV.

    The Public – “Hey what is your kid named”
    Ford – “His name is Mustang Mach-E”
    The Public – “NO. You can’t name him Mustang Mach-E because you already have a son named Mustang!!”
    Ford – “Yes. I do. I’m not getting rid of my son Mustang. I have another son named Mustang Mach-E”
    The Public – “NOOOO! We don’t like what you named your son!! Mustang is special. You should never name anything with that name unless we approve of it!”
    Ford – “They are both my sons. They are from the same family. They are different but both my sons”
    The Public – “Yeah! But what about the HERITAGE!! You cannot ruin the Heritage!!!”
    Ford – “Ummm…you want ownership of the Mustange II and the Grande Mustang too?”
    The Public – “No! Those Mustangs suck too! We get to determine what Mustang is really a Mustang and you dont!”
    Ford – “Da fu*k? When you raise your own kid you can name it anything you want. This kid, my son, his name is Mustang Mach-E. Get over it”

  12. Jorge Esquinca

    I had the opportunity to drive the Mach-e and I´m really dissapointed. it´s definitively not a Mustang. It doesn´t look like a Mustang, it doesn´t behave like a Mustang, it doesn´t drive like a Mustang, it doesn´t feel like a Mustang and it doesn´t have the character of a Mustang. It´s just another boring cookie cutter SUV with Mustang grille, Mustang tail lights, Mustang badges and Mustang pretentions. If Ford really wants a 4 door EV Mustang, then it needs to target something the likes of a Porsche Taycan or an Audi e-tron GT. I don´t care if Ford wants to call it a Mustang. It´s not a Mustang. The Mach-e is like putting grill stripes to a piece of Tofu and call it NY steak.

    The new mustang is ugly – I would never purchase this.
