    The Mustang Mach-E arguably has the better brand name. It is also faster and has a better interior!

    Each of those points are debatable.

    But definitely not faster.

    True it isn't faster, 0-60 seems to be around the same.Tesla had the advantage with Tech, but the new Mach-E is catching up. Also the Mach-E has better quality as Tesla quality has been a little bit of a concern with new Model Y's being delivered with scratches and panel gaps. Tesla does have the nice touch screen and better autopilot though.

    And don't forget the $10K dealership tax

    Yes but most people actually don't use Tesla Supercharging, for your average Joe they just charge it at home. Also there are millions of charging stations around the world that will support the Mach-E. The 10k dealership tax is noted, but remember Tesla has stupid lease deals. 600 dollars a month to lease a Model 3. Where as the Mach-E will be leased for cheaper, 400-500 dollars.

    Unproven full EV technology, both hardware and software. Tesla has a large headstart over the market.

    There you go! Bet they have a forum you can discuss it with others with your tastes.

    Unless you are trolling, I don't think you will get any kind of informative real world comparison from anyone, anywhere, right now...for obvious reasons. One is a vehicle you can buy and drive right now, while the other is not. One you can get hard facts about, good or bad, while the other you cannot.

    Because it's slower, has less range, charges slower, has fewer places to charge...that's just offhand.

    You will have to visit a $ealer every 6 months or every 5k miles,
    to get new brake pads and a laundry list of useless things to do,
    otherwise you will loose your warranty.

    [ Also the Mach-E has better quality as Tesla quality has been a little bit of a concern ]

    How do you know what the quality will be, They haven't started delivering them yet.

    Range, performance and standard equipment for the current Model Y LR AWD ($52,990) are far better than the comparably priced future 2021 Mustang Mach-E Premium AWD ($53,300):

    Range: 316 mi v. 210 mi
    0-60 4.8s v. 5.5s
    Max charge rate: 250 kW v. 150 kW
    Autopilot standard v no
    Supercharger network v. no
    Side collision warning v. no
    Obstacle aware acceleration v. no
    Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance v. no
    Auto dimming heated mirror v. no
    Front and rear heated seats v. front heated seats only
    Sentry Mode/Security Camera v. no
    Movies/Games/Karaoke v. no
    Dog Mode v. no

    In contrast, the Mach-E offers the following features not available on Model Y:

    heated steering wheel
    360 degree parking camera and
    a hands-free foot activated lift gate

    Really no comparison, even without factoring in Tesla's experience with EVs, battery life, etc., not to mention that Model Y will likely improve by the time Mach-E starts shipping.

    Comparison between: 2020 Tesla Model Y Long Range AWD, 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Premium AWD
