In this blog post, we dive into the realities of Ford’s decision in Europe and what it means for both buyers and competitors alike. We take an in-depth look at the cost comparison between Tesla’s Model Y and Ford’s Mustang Mach-E, as well as how Ford will tackle the competition from other electric vehicle makers.

Ford’s plans for the Mustang Mach-E in Europe
In Europe, Ford has no plans to cut the price of the Mustang Mach-E like Tesla did with the Model 3. Instead, Ford is focused on making the Mach-E a success in its own right.
The Mustang Mach-E is already off to a good start in Europe, with strong early demand. In fact, all of the Mach-E’s available for pre-order in Europe have already been spoken for. This bodes well for Ford’s plans to sell the electric SUV in Europe.
Ford is planning to make the Mustang Mach-E a success in Europe by focusing on its strengths. One of those strengths is its range. The Mach-E has a range of up to 370 miles on a single charge, which is more than enough for most European driving needs.
Another strength of the Mustang Mach-E is its performance. The SUV can go from 0 to 60 mph in just over 5 seconds, making it one of the quickest SUVs on the market. This will appeal to European buyers who value performance and driving dynamics.
Ford is also banking on the Mustang name to help sell the Mach-E in Europe. The Mustang is an iconic nameplate that has a lot of history and cachet among car enthusiasts. This should help draw buyers into showrooms even if they’re not initially sold on an electric SUV.
Overall, Ford seems confident that it can make the Mustang Mach-E a success in Europe without resorting
Tesla’s price cuts for the Model 3 in Europe
Tesla has announced plans to cut the price of its Model 3 in Europe, in a move that is likely to put pressure on other carmakers to follow suit.
The electric carmaker said it would cut the prices of its Standard Range and Long Range models by 5% and 3% respectively, with the reductions coming into effect from next month.
Tesla said the price cuts were being made possible by “continued improvements in our technology and manufacturing processes”, which have reduced the cost of producing the cars.
The move comes as rival carmakers are preparing to launch their own electric vehicles in Europe, including the Ford Mustang Mach-E.
While Ford has not yet announced any plans to cut the price of the Mach-E in Europe, it is likely that Tesla’s move will put pressure on other manufacturers to do so.
Why Ford isn’t planning to follow Tesla’s lead
Tesla’s decision to cut prices on its Model 3 electric car in Europe by around 5% was widely seen as a response to increased competition from traditional automakers. But Ford isn’t planning to follow Tesla’s lead with its own electric vehicles.
Instead, Ford is focusing on delivering value to customers in other ways, such as through its recent partnership with Volkswagen. Together, the two companies are investing billions of dollars in electric vehicle technology and infrastructure.
Ford also believes that its strong product lineup – including the all-new Mustang Mach-E – will help it compete effectively against Tesla and other electric vehicle manufacturers.
