Do you think despite being artificial any electric should include a 6 speed manual and a paddle shift option?

Ford have mentioned this somewhere before for their future Mustang.

Obviously Z will not be the same forever.

I'm not sure you can make a manual electric car... maybe?

Paddle shifters would be nice, but they might also be useless.

You can, and it's actually pretty cool. I think there will be an manual option for the upcoming Wrangler 4xE. If I recall correctly, you would only need to use the clutch from a stop. Thereafter, you can just select whatever gear you want.

Not sure if any mods can modify the poll. Not sure why it had two nos and yes options

In some electric cars they are only used for regeneration. Since most ev cars are only single or dual geared you can integrate a speed restrictor that can act a speed changer when in manual mode. Some complex programming would be required though.
