SpaceX Astronaut Buys Ford Mustang Mach-E Instead Of A Tesla

Dr. Sian “Leo” Proctor is a SpaceX astronaut who’s previously made history. She was a member of the Inspiration4 crew, the initial private mission into the ultimate frontier. SpaceX, of training course, is the rocket and spaceship company launched by Elon Musk, who’s also a founder and CEO of Tesla. So you’d think Dr. Proctor would mechanically pick to buy a Tesla as her initial EV. Can make sense, correct? It does, but it wasn’t the correct EV for her. As an alternative, she opted for a Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Crafting on Twitter, Dr. Proctor mentioned that this is not her initial Ford. “I had a Bronco II through grad university and liked it! I had some fantastic adventures in it. I appreciate that the Bronco is back but I required an EV for all the town driving I am executing.”
