Generally favorable review (in the snow!). Some may recall that this YouTube Channel was blocked from getting a Mustang, when everyone else got one, because they leaked a Bronco photo early (I believe).

It was a bit annoying that they were comparing a Mustang that is in the $30Ks after tax credit with a Tesla that is over $50K without one. It is more than a red apples to green apples comparison that they mention in the video.



...Also, they did seem to have a problem with the artificial sound. Anyone know why?

I thought from the thread title this might be a new one. But this is the same one that was posted here at least 3 times yesterday.

How do you figure it’s in the $30Ks? Are you including some pretty generous state credits?

They talked about $7500 + $4000 in Colorado for Tax Credit.

Pre-production unit. Bugs were still being worked out and will be part of a raft of OTA updates the cars will get at delivery.

Good info, thanks for posting.

I didn't realize the Model Y had a power adjustable steering column. Tesla doesn't list it on their web page, but I did find it in the owners manual.

A power steering column is one cost cutting moves on the Mach I don't like.

The other cost cutting move is the limited movement of the power seats. The Model Y has a full 12 way power adjustable seat, but the Mach cuts out the tilting function and the up/down power lumbar adjustment, so I guess it's considered an 8 way power adjustable seat.

The lag they experienced with Sync 4 is similar to the lag I've experienced in the production 2021 F-150s. It's laggy is some screens but not in others. The lag is not that bad in most screens but it does lack the crisp and snappy feel of an iPhone or a Tesla.

Wouldn‘t the Tesla qualify for state tax credits as well?
Yes.

FWIW, it's now $2500 for 2021/22. Was $4000 for 2020, and $5000 before that. And I think it drops to $2000 for 2023+. Regardless of manufacturer.

So the only real difference is the $7500 federal one. Which really works out to ~$7000 net difference when sales tax is factored on. We pay sales tax on the purchase price before the federal tax credit, meaning we pay it on that $7500. Usually in the 7-8% where most people live in the state (although for some it's only 2.9%).
