Elon Musk tweets congratulate Ford on their all-electric Mustang Mach-E SUV



"Congratulations to Mach E! Sustainable / electric cars are the future! Exciting to see this announcement from Ford, as it will encourage other car manufacturers to go electric as well," Musk wrote on Twitter.

The new Mustang seems to be an attempt by Ford to take on Tesla, and it will compete directly with the upcoming Tesla Model Y SUV.

  Ford targets Tesla with electric Mustang SUV
Tesla already has an all-electric SUV in the luxury model X, but Musk has already acknowledged that it is of minor importance and does not have a huge impact on the company's end line. The more affordable Model Y, on the other hand, has the potential to be a game changer for Tesla with the popularity of crossover SUVs.

With production on the Model Y scheduled to begin in the summer of 2020, Tesla may have a slight head start on Ford, as the Mustang Mach-E is expected to be available next

Model Y is also expected to have a starting price below $ 40,000, while the base version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E will start at about $ 45,000.
