Aside from spaciousness, the Ford's EV will also offer the performance of a true mustang - 459 horsepower and 3.5 seconds to 60.
3 ISTJ - Tesla Model 3
ISTJs, often referred to "Logisticians," are some of the most practical and logical people you'll ever meet. They possess the uncanny ability to ignore emotions and look at a problem from a strictly objective and realistic point of view. However, they have values that are deeply rooted in tradition, and are averse to breaking established rules or laws.

You need something practical, inviting, and with plenty of space to comfortably seat at least 5 - and the Leaf is a brilliant choice!
