Tesla Model Y VS Ford Mustang Mach-E

Tesla Model Y  VS Ford Mustang Mach-E

Credit Suisse believes that the Ford Mustang Mach-E will become a serious competitor for Tesla.
Ford Mustang Mach-E will go on sale in the USA, Canada and Europe next autumn, and, according to Credit Suisse, the price of this electric car will be in the luxury range.
Ford has been positioning its Mustang Mach-E, its first next-gen all-electric vehicle, against the Tesla Model Y electric crossover.

Ford president of global operations Joe Hinrichs said that the electric vehicle will be in showrooms around the same time as Tesla’s Model Y:

"The company is moving quickly toward producing what it previously described as a ‘Mustang-inspired’ all-electric SUV that will be in showrooms next year, about the same time Tesla begins to deliver the first Model Y battery SUV."

Ford announced in January 2018 that it would launch a new electric crossover inspired by Mustang. But appreciating its appearance and interior design, the only thing that comes to mind is that Ford was inspired by the Tesla Model Y.

Seriously guys, is that really all that you can do?!

Let's compare the characteristics of the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the Tesla Model Y.

Model Y has a bit more cargo space, and although Ford has not confirmed Mach-E's DC charge level, we estimate that Model Y has a much higher charging speed on Supercharger V3 stations.

Both vehicles come standard with Dual Motor all-wheel drive transmissions and 20-inch wheels.

But the cost of a Ford Mustang Mach-E with such a range, compared to the Tesla Model Y range, looks baseless.

Also, let's not forget about driver assistance systems. And although Ford also has some driver assistance systems, but they are completely uncompetitive in comparison with Tesla's driver assistance systems.

It is good that the electric car market is developing. It is very important that absolutely all car manufacturers as soon as possible begin to produce only electric cars.
Making this review, it becomes clear that Ford, as well as other automakers, is inspired by Tesla. They are trying to make a product that in terms of exterior design, interior design, specifications and price will be at least a little similar to Tesla. Tesla has become a trendsetter for environmentally friendly cars. Tesla goes a few steps ahead of all its competitors, so they all still have something to strive for.
