Ford Mach-E vs Tesla Model 3 vs Tesla Model Y. If you're searching for an electric car for your garage, these are some of the best options available. The Mach-E offers an alternative to the powerhouse Tesla who has dominated the EV market. Ford's Mach-E is available in RWD or AWD, and with two different battery pack sizes, with driving range varying from 211 to 305 miles. Performance is similar to the Tesla Model Y, with an AWD 0-60 in 4.8 seconds, and a GT model at 3.5 seconds.
In this video we'll compare batteries, driving range, efficiency, price, performance, exteriors, cargo capacity (frunk & trunk), interiors, infotainment systems, features, driving dynamics, tow ratings, and phone apps. We'll end with a summary including reasons to buy each.

    I drove the Mach E and it definitely already feels dated on the inside. And there''s a weird buzzing noise like I'm under telephone wires when the car is on. The nav is pretty bad the the screen interface is barely satisfactory. It drives alright tho. Wouldn't choose it over a tesla for any possible reason, though.

    Shouldn't you be comparing the Mach-e to the model Y. Model 3 is a sedan, oh wait Ford doesn't do those anymore because they can't compete in the market place. Model 3 wins by default.

    Sadly, Tesla's aren't a great option for everyone. I live in Mississippi and we have laws against selling cars without a dealer being involved. While I can technically buy a Tesla, they can't exist here ergo - If something goes wrong I have to drive to a different state to visit a service center. I know they have the Tesla Rangers, but with the Mach E I can just drive to the nearest Ford dealer and get it fixed. It's sad. I'd own a Tesla if I could drive a couple miles to have it fixed. Oh and you get taxed extra here for owning an EV. Forget an incentive, you have to pay extra in the glorious south.

    Thanks for the great video. I decided on the Y. As a matter of fact, I don't see Ford being able to compete with Tesla going forward. Range, efficiency, cargo, charging. The Y wins. Ford sold about 6,000 in Q1 2021. I don't think they would have sold any if they had not been subsidized. How many people going forward are going to buy a Mach e for more money than the Y, once Biden extends the ev subsidy to Tesla? The Ford goes from $5000 cheaper overall to $5000 more expensive. As a side note, the VW ID4 is probably an ok competitor to the Model 3, but it won't be getting any incentive in the US since it is manufactured in Germany. It really seems that this is the year where Tesla definitively buries it's potential competitors.

    If these were gas cars would you pay more money for a Ford than a BMW or Mercedes? I don’t think so, so why would you pay more money for a Ford than a Tesla, Tesla is a luxury brand, Ford is not, I think Ford would have made a better decision creating this car as a Lincoln as opposed to a Ford.

    Overall a good comparison, but there is a couple things I'm not sure I can agree on.
    You shouldn't just blindly believe the range numbers which are given by car manufactures. There is plenty info on the internet which shows that Tesla tend to be too aggressive when they calculate their range figures, while Mach-E is more conservative with their estimated numbers; so Ford can usually drive longer than estimated range. With that being said, I still believe Testa is more efficient per kw/h of battery; the difference is just not nearly as drastic as you can see on a sheet of paper.
    As for the ground clearance - it's a Mustang, meaning it's supposed to be a sporty car; so I can definitely see why Ford has done that. I wish wider tire options would be more available though.

    I bought the Jaguar I-Pace over the Model 3 last year, main reason was the ground clearance and the I-Pace's ability to increase ground clearance for mild off use. Love the new Mustang except for the low ground clearance, The Mustang Mach-E center display is a big plus, don't need to take your eyes off the road to see your speed, as I love the HUD on the Jaguar.

    Glossed over several key advantages of the Model Y over the Mach E; these advantages applyto the Model 3 also, but it shouldn't even being compared to Mach E and Y. The Tesla Supercharger network is massive and completely seemless and only Tesla vehicles can use them. Oh and you skipped over that all Teslas can also use every other charger network chargers. The Supercharger network is also much cheaper then competing charging networks and expanding rapidly. On top of that Teslas being much more efficient then competitors cost less to charge, because Teslas have a much smaller battery pack for thw same range for the same or much greater range. These are huge advantages.

    Doesn't warranty play a BIG role in this? Please correct me if I am wrong. The BUMPER TO BUMPER warranty on the Ford is 3 years and the Tesla it is 5 years. If everything was close to equal this would be a deal-breaker for me. With all the electronics on these cars 2 extra years on a warranty is a big deal.
