  • Parts availability at basically any dealer
  • Body panels at any repair shop
  • Mustang culture of customization
  • Extended warranty options
  • Ford Performance keeps working on it
  • Acoustic glass
  • 10 color options vs. 5 for Tesla
I bet we'll see third party support like fossil Mustangs have. CJ Pony parts, American Muscle, etc, should offer some things for MME owners to upgrade their cars. Not to mention possible factory supported mods like from Saleen, Rousch, and Shelby.

  • Looks are way cooler; stylish and sporty rather than boring and frumpy
  • Fit and finish should be far superior
  • 117 years of Ford experience at building solid vehicles
  • While the CCS charging network (US) is behind right now, it should catch up and surpass Tesla in a few years

One of the choices is made by a company being led by a flimflam, upheld by his Stans, ignored by NHTSA and the FTC, and abusive of his workers.

But ignoring that and just comparing the cars on their spec sheets: the Mustang Mach-E comes with a washable frunk, although you must locate and buy your own shrimp and wings with which to fill it.

That one is just the opposite for me. I find both MME blues to be disappointing. But the Y's Deep Blue Metallic would be a serious consideration for me. Much richer tone that I wish Ford had offered something close to (like Velocity Blue).

But I'm happy with Rapid Red instead.

yes, the Tesla blue is gorgeous. Grabber blue is too powder blue, and the infinite blue just looks like a better blue that is covered in dust and dirt but isn't.

The upside with MME is that a great red is $1600 cheaper

It's not butt ugly. You don't even have to be "stylish and sporty" as @dbsb3233 pointed out. Just not butt ugly. ;)
Having seen it in person, the Mach E looks powerful and elegant. It's gorgeous! Much better than melted lines with a gaping catfish front end.

The frunk has a drank plug.

The extended glass roof for more headroom.

the center console is not glossy black, fingerprints all the time.

hands-free tailgate

Doors have a frame around the glass. A lot of tesla have problems with windows not being up before closing and making marks in the paint or hurting the rubber trim.

The ambient lighting effects.

Speed display in front of you

looks better. doesn't look like Jethro catching a catfish.

From what I have heard the seats are way better, more comfort than a tesla. Like a big difference.

keyless enter pad.

the door opens a little for you, easier to get in if hands are full.

more and more, just what I can think of now
