They decided to go with the Mustang name to show that this car is as fun to drive as a Mustang and that Ford is seriously committed to the car.

Like any battery, the performance decreases over time. However, Ford has planned for this by reserving some of the battery's capacity so that in the future, you won't notice any degradation.

The battery has an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty.
