Ok, so we’ve gone from they look nothing alike to “of course they look alike, that’s how all of those SUVs look”. How about the specs for performance and price being almost identical to model Y and nothing at all like bolt, leaf, and focus ?It looks like an SUV with Mustang styling inspiration. It's also a common SUV profile that is not exclusive to Tesla.
The basic profile looks similar, but the styling/design look nothing alike.Ok, so we’ve gone from they look nothing alike to “of course they look alike, that’s how all of those SUVs look”.

That’s my whole point. I want really even commenting on the design, jason05gt is the one who said they don’t look anything alike. My comment was on how ridiculous that article was to state that ford took inspiration from those stupid clown car EVs and came up with the Mach-e when clearly it is a direct competitor to the model Y. To be clear, I think ford did a fantastic job- if the pricing, performance, and range estimations stay accurate. Remember however that they are more or less buying off the shelf parts (batteries, motors, controllers) so for them to have a Tesla-like performance and capability right out of the box would be amazing. We can of course argue about the body fit and finish on tesla, but nobody in the industry comes close to having the same amount of tech and refinement in the powertrain.Eh, I mean, if we are trying to say that, well.
Design styling on Model Y is very similar to other cars as well that were out well before the Y was even in exisistence.
Every major car manufacturer has been doing this for years upon years.
Ford is most likely intending on making this a direct competitor to the Model Y as the Tesla is the entry level SUV as well as the Mach-E for Ford being the first SUV of it's kind for Ford.
Agreed 100%.I think the name is the only thing really "wrong" with it. I think it looks awesome and better than what Tesla is offering...
I don't think this is their first real EV? Focus came in all electric, maybe more too... Or did you mean EV only?I’ve said it from the beginning this is an amazing first offer in for a real EV for any company. My only doubt is that they will not be able to produce as many as they think they will and I have a feeling the EPA mileage isn’t going to be what they Are estimating.
