According to the latest reports, the new 2021 Tesla Model Y will arrive sooner than we learned. Exactly six months ago, Elon Musk revealed his plan for deliveries that should start in the fall of 2020. Today, news of the arrival of the Model Y surprised us all. This means that you can expect the new electrical crossover from Tesla in early 2020.
This is great news for everyone, and this model will go on sale soon. Elon Musk also said many positive things about the new Ford Mustang Mach-E. It will be an epic battle, and here’s why.
It is an electrical confrontation. 2021 Tesla Model Y arrives against the recently introduced 2021 Ford Mach-E. Many experts have predicted that the Rivian SUV is Tesla‘s main competitor. Now it appears that Ford is the one that matches the new Y model. Let’s see what the candidates have to offer.
The Mach-E crossover is 186 inches long. On the other hand, the Y model should be approximately 184.4 inches tall because it will use the Model 3. platform. In terms of seat capacity, the Y model can accommodate seven passengers, while Mach-E has only five. We are particularly interested in performance, driving range, charging and acceleration. For starters, the Model Y will use a 75 kWh battery while Mach-E uses 98.8 kWh. Interestingly, both models provide 300 miles of electric range.
However, Tesla promised 400 hp and Ford 332 hp. Regarding acceleration, both models reach 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. We are of course talking about the fastest releases. Finally, the Ford Mustang Mach-E comes with a charging speed of 150 kW and a charging speed of the Tesla Model Y 250 kW. It is clear that Tesla will do better, but not better. On the other hand, Mach-E becomes more affordable and makes interior design more traditional.
