You know that Ford actually made a competitive car when the Mustang Mach-E can go up against the Tesla Model Y without being embarrassed. If you want to finally get one of Elon’s little toys, you can hurt to see this review first. Otherwise, you may miss it.
Tommy and Roman’s father and son duo spend a lot of time going through the details and features of these two, and comparing them as they go. You get the feeling that this is more of a technical review than anything else ̵
Gone are the days when you needed a key to open the car. Tesla even lets you pop in front of the trunk, and while the Ford app does not, you will be able to when the updates roll in. The door handles have also been “reinvented.” While the Model Y has retractable handles, the Mach-E only has buttons to open the doors. Hopefully they are still working in the winter or when the warranty expires.
While they are a bit similar on the outside, these rivals are worlds apart inside. Model Y, as you probably know, has one of the most minimalist dashboards ever made. Everything is concentrated on the big tablet. Meanwhile, Ford had a larger container for parts to give us a little-known cabin that still feels minimalist. Only time will tell if Ford’s OTA software updates will be as good as Tesla’s … probably not, though.
Unfortunately, these two parts are not direct rivals when it comes to specifications. Mach-E Premium AWD has 211 miles range. Model Y has 70 miles of extra range. However, it is a Ford that will go 300 miles, which basically matches Tesla in that regard.
