Geotagging data shows Tesla Model Y vs. Ford Mach-E interest for each US state
So we’ve got some interesting data from our friends at partcatalog.com who were able to track around 10,000 geotagged tweets from the last month to generate the map of the United States showing state-wise interest in Tesla Model Y vs. Ford Mustang Mach-E.
A couple of months ago Ford launched their first-ever electric vehicle by bringing the Mustang franchise into the EV arena, the other thing Ford did with it was to convert it to a compact SUV and according to some it is a crossover but it directly competes with the Tesla Model Y, which is on the brink of production while the Mach-E deliveries are touted to begin winter 2020 or early 2021.
The map created with the geotagged data shows that 30 US states are more interested in the Tesla Model Y vs. 20 states tilting more towards the Ford Mach-E, as we can see in the following map infographic states from the Midwest and the South are more inclined towards the Ford’s electric SUV, these locations are already Ford’s stronghold.
There are a few surprises here as Nevada, the home to Tesla Gigafactory 1 has more interest in Ford Mustang Mach-E and on the east coast Florida is more enthusiastic towards the Mach-E, the Tesla community in Florida is strong but still.
Indiana is more interested in Tesla Model Y where the Bargersville Police Department has already recruited a Model 3 patrol car, sure Tesla is popular there but from the Cybertruck hate or love geotagging data Indiana didn’t like the Cybertruck much.
In our opinion, Tesla Model Y is here to disrupt and add to the profitability of Tesla in coming quarters, and by the Time Ford Mustang Mach-E deliveries start, the Model Y wave would have taken over quite a bit.
Sean Mitchell/YouTube compared the basic stats of the Ford Mach-E, Tesla Model Y, Jaguar I-Pace, Mercedes EQC, and the Audi e-Tron in the following chart, the range across the variants of both compact SUVs is quite comparable i.e. Mache-E 210 vs. Model Y 230 miles for the lowest variant and same 300 miles for the top-end vehicle.
However, the starting price for the basic variant for the Mach-E is $43,895 vs. Model Y’s $39,000 — basically, Tesla is offering 20 miles more range for about $5,000 less, this is a big advantage of the Model Y over the Mach-E, also the max charging speed of 250 kW vs. 150 kW gives the Model Y an edge over Ford’s Mache-E — Tesla Supercharger network is a major deciding factor in buying a Model Y instead of a Mach-E.
