Tesla Model Y Rival Revs Up Production

Buyers of the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric are seeing hard production dates.

Several people who placed orders for the Ford Electric crossover are receiving notifications of production dates of December 7, 2020, according to posts on the Mustang Mach E Reddit forum and the Mach E Club. Other December dates were also cited.

The Mustang Mach-E is one of the most anticipated new electric cars and has one of the best chances of stealing some thunder from Tesla’s popular Model Y. Both cars are classified as crossover SUVs, aka, a compact SUV.

Ford recently reduced prices on some versions of the 2021 Mustang Mach-E
