'Blatant speculation' says Ford on electric Mustang rumours – report

Ford has responded to rumours suggesting the next-generation of the Mustang will move to an all-electric platform by 2029, telling US media the reports are "blatant speculation". According to Carscoops, sources inside Ford dismissed the rumours, claiming no decision had been made on the subject. However, while the language appears to cast off the idea, it falls short of denying it entirely, indicating a fully-electric Ford Mustang was still a possibility.
