Consumer Reports Prefers the Ford Mustang Mach-E Over the Tesla Model 3

The Ford Mustang Mach E is tops for Consumer Reports, but the latter still recommends the Tesla Model 3


  • So far, the Mach E seems problem-free compared to the Tesla.

  • Ford believes it can beat Tesla at its own game – this is validation.

  • Consumer Reports has made the Mach-E its “Top Pick” EV.


Ford has bet the farm on electric vehicles and so far, things are going very well. Reservations for the Lightning are through the roof and Ford can’t build copies of their Mustang Mach-E fast enough. And now, they’ve just received one of the most coveted seals of approval from Consumer Reports.

The globally renown non-profit group has made the Ford Mustang Mach-E its “Top Pick” for an electric vehicle. This means that it is its most recommended EV to buy.

Jake Fisher, senior director of automotive testing at Consumer Reports, said about the Ford Mustang Mach E: “Not only is it a really fun vehicle to drive, it is sporty, but it is also extremely mature,” Fisher told CNBC. “When I say that it rides nice, it is very quiet. I mean it really feels well built.”

Consumer Reports still holds the Tesla Model 3 in high regards however they’ve said that the Mustang bests it in some areas such as hands-free driving. This is indeed high praise and validation for Ford’s efforts to beat Tesla at its own game.
