All the italics above are mine, but the caveats refer to the models. I bolded the charge times just for reference.

There are four models in the all-new electric Mustang – the Select, the California Route 1, the Premium, and the GT. We actually drove the Mach EX, which I believe is the Premium Model with all wheel drive, thus the X.

I think the Federal Tax Credit is worth a quick comment. You don’t actually get the price of the vehicle lowered. You get a tax credit which definitely would help your overall taxes. The Select is $42K+, the California Route 1 is just over $50K, the Premium is $47.6K, and the GT is $59.9K. At this point, I have to say, I don’t know how you rank costs in electric cars. You are buying new technology, but it is hard for me to say whether those are value prices or expensive. Almost $60K sounds expensive, but you are not buying gas – ever. You are, however, plugging it in your house, either in a 120V outlet, a 220V outlet, or a Ford Connected Charge Station, which Ford can install in your home, at a fee. No gas sounds like a good idea -reduced emissions, greener planet, and so on. However, if my electric bill goes from $200 a month to $400 a month, I am not going to be happy particularly. It seems to me energy is being used in one form or another.
