    Mach E vs Model Y Photos

    Somebody in Dearborn was kind enough to take some photos of the Mach E and Model Y side by side.

    There something about Tesla's windscreens that make someone sitting inside look like a pompous imp

    This tells me that Tesla is in real trouble from Detroit. First of, congratulation to Ford for coming out with this car. Secondly, I got to say, the design is much more comprehensive from Ford that the Tesla high school design experiment.
    Then as a buyer, who would in their right mind go with Tesla if the Ford retail network is available? Unless of course you must be seen sitting inside that thing...

    It's the fishbowl phenomenon, the low cowl does that. It's great for visibility outside, but also inside. The Mustang's biggest advantage for me is the profile, it's not wedge-shaped like the Tesla and looks more like an traditional ICE car.

    I actually prefer the Model Y design personally, for many reasons. The design is more honest, takes advantage of the EV architecture, more spacious, larger green house, flusher glass and smoother body details. There are no design cheats like the blacked out roof line and spoiler on the Mach E. The Mach E rear also looks odd compared to the Model Y, sunken and flat.

    The Mustang has some tech and amenities that I would personally miss if I bought a Tesla, like Wireless CarPlay and a heated steering wheel. But there is other tech on Tesla's side of course.

    At this moment I would still chose the Model Y anyway, Ford is very VERY inexperienced when it comes to much the tech they are trying to launch to take on Tesla. I honestly cringe at the thought of Ford OTA updates for example. This is a nice toe in the water, but it's still very early for them and I need to watch them for a few years to see how they do.

    I like the Mustang exterior better, but the Tesla interior better. So somewhere between the two would be my ideal.

    I agree w/ your take on the two...the Model Y doesn't look like it's trying to blend in....it looks like an EV w/ no compromises on design. The Mach E OTOH looks as if it still has to placate to buyers that don't really want an EV...there is an inherent ICE-ness to its design. All that said out of all of the Teslas, the Model Y is second only to the Model 3...that car looks damn good w/ the performance package wheels.

    Design being equal, and assuming the performance and range are in the same ballpark, the charging network would still play a big win when comparing the two vehicles.

    Re: Mach E vs Model Y Photos

    If I were in the market for an SUV and a car, it could be tempting (cute?) to have a Mustang GT and a Mustang Mach E!
    I wish they all could be California squirrels!
    Past Rides: 2003 Grand Am GT1 (saved me), 1995 Bonneville SLE (RIP), 1986 635 CSi, 1984 Estate Wagon, 1978 Malibu Classic, 1978 Corvette, 1975 Vega Kammback (Miss ya'), 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger (STFU...it got me there!)

    I wonder if that's the whole sub branding strategy, families buying more than one type of Mustang (or Bronco).
    They're basically saying don't choose, just get one of each type.

    Most people do not need the charging network

    If that were completely true, there would be no need for such an expansive network and operators would go broke.
