Ford Mustang Mach-E and Tesla Model 3 Size Difference is Bigger than Expected

In a recently uploaded photo the Ford Mustang Mach-E is captured charging along side a Tesla Model 3. The photo highlights just how much bigger the Ford model is. Although the Mustang Mach-E is classified as an SUV and the Model 3 a midsize sedan, the difference in sheer size is a surprise to most.

Fred Smith captured the two EVs charging in a parking structure next to Ford’s Engineering Lab in Dearborn, Ohio. Regardless of the fact that the Mach-E is slighlty closer to the camera, the size difference is still quite noticeable. The hood alone is much higher and the front end if massive compared to that of the Model 3. The Mach-E also appears to be substantially taller which was expected as it is a crossover.
