Ford Mustang Mach-E Tech & Cargo Space (vs. Tesla Model Y Tech & Cargo Space)

It was Ford Mustang Day yesterday, and that helped me to finally get through video editing of some of our Ford Mustang Mach-E footage from February, when we had the Mustang Mach-E visit us for 7 days on the Florida Suncoast.

    Mercedes preps debut of EQE EV, a Tesla Model S rival

    The EQS is expected to have a WLTP range of more than 700 km (435 miles), according to Mercedes. The EQS will roll off the same assembly line as the S-Class flagship sedan at the automaker’s plant in Sindelfingen, near Stuttgart, starting this year.
