Ford's new "Mustang-inspired" all-electric SUV competes directly with the Tesla Model Y.

Other comparable electric crossovers include the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Hyundai Kona Electric and the Kia Niro EV. Neither intended to be sporty like the Mach E or Model Y, and it's reflected in pricing.

2021 Ford Mach E SUV Competitors
  • Chevrolet Bolt EV: $36,620
  • Hyundai Kona Electric: $36,950
  • Kia Niro EV: $38,500
  • Tesla Model Y: $43,700
  • Ford Mach E: TBD
  • Byton M-Byte: $45,000 (estimated)
Ford said it will be priced "relatively affordable" once announced. Judging by Mach E specifications that are slowly leaking out, like the confirmed EPA-estimated range of 300-miles and 0-60 under 3.5 seconds, both similar to the Tesla, pricing should follow suit as well. China-based EV startup, BRYTON, will also launch an all-electric crossover to rival Ford and Tesla by 2021.

It remains to be seen how good the Tesla Model Y and Mach E SUV actually are when compared to each other, and to all mentioned rivals. For example, Model Y’s bigger battery and motor gave it a major advantage with overall performance over the rest. Something we hope Ford can respond to.

On the opposite end is the Niro EV. An excellent utilitarian that’s poor on performance.

In between, the Chevy Bolt offers a mix of both and does it well.

Ultimately the selection process comes down to individual needs. For now these are your only options above the entry-level Bolt EV, Kona Electric and Kia Niro, which will change in the years ahead.

If Ford is putting such an emphasis on performance the main competition has to be the Model Y. Aside from Tesla being the face of EVs over the past few years, they're also the only ones on this list who have made sure their EVs can reach "ludicrous" speeds.
