One of the fascinating things about a brand like Tesla is that its path is pretty much unprecedented. Regardless of what kind of vehicles it makes, there has never been an automotive manufacturer that has burst its way into the market and figuratively slapped around all of the competition. It’s very rare that any new competitor makes major waves in the automotive market but those that eventually do normally lurk around in the background before eventually getting their big break.
Tesla, on the other hand, not only came on the market within the span of just over a decade. They also managed to completely take over, redirecting automotive culture as we know it. Not only have they become the most valuable automotive manufacturer ever. They have also provoked a widespread change in the product lines of long-standing competitors in this market going forward.
With that, 2021 is going to be a year that tells us a lot. Up until now, Tesla is the only manufacturer that has had any sort of real success in mass-producing an all-electric vehicle. However, they will have the gamut thrown in their direction as just about everybody who makes cars will be producing an electric vehicle in 2021.
Up for discussion this time, we find one of the more controversial competitors in the ring as Ford has decided to use the Mustang nameplate and apply it to an SUV… An electric SUV at that.
Down in the video below from The Fast Lane, we get to dive into the all-new Mustang Mach E and compare it to the likes of the Tesla Model Y which should be one of its most direct competitors. In this video, the crew asked the question of if Ford truly was able to build a better version of a Tesla or not.
For those who are fans of the electric vehicle community, this is going to be quite an exciting year. Where do you think the chips will fall when all is said and done and the dust settles on the upcoming round of electric vehicles?
