A battle between the electric Ford Mustang and the Tesla Model Y is brewing, and doesn't seem to have a deciding factor. The 2021 Mustang Mach-E delivers 305 miles of range according to the EPA, which falls short of the Model Y Long Range's 326 miles of range on a full charge. The California Route 1 utilizes an 88 kWh battery pack and a rear-mounted permanent-magnet synchronous electric motor.
The Tesla Model Y Long Range is fitted with all-wheel drive as standard, however a rear-wheel drive Standard Range model was just announced with 244 miles of range. While all-wheel drive Mach-E trim levels are obtainable, the California Route 1 comes with rear-wheel drive and 290 horsepower, the latter of which is complimented by 317 lb-ft of torque. A 6.1 second 0-60 mph time is possible, according to Ford, which is leisurely compared to the Model Y Long Range's 4.4 second run.
Being the upper-level California Route 1 model, several commodities can be found as standard. These include 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin all-season tires and improved aerodynamics, to name a few. Additionally, it is lighter than the rear-wheel drive Extended Range Mach-E, according to the automaker.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E starts at $43,995 for the Select, while base Model Y's cost $290 more. The 305-mile Mustang Mach-E California Route 1 model is currently available for order, and starts at $50,900 (Not including Federal Tax Credit).
