Electric SUVs are the future of the automotive industry. The SUV vehicle segment has become the most popular vehicle segment in America because of practicality and spaciousness. Electric SUVs are rapidly rising in popularity. These four American electric SUVs from automakers like Tesla and Ford will make a massive impact on the future of the automobile industry.

The Tesla Model Y is a pioneer

Tesla doesn’t often get love from the current administration because of Elon Musk’s anti-union beliefs, but the country would be remiss not to acknowledge how much headway Tesla has made in the EV space. Tesla was one of the first American automakers to produce practical (yet expensive) electric vehicles consistently.

The Tesla Model Y is a pioneer in its vehicle segment. It became the benchmark for electric SUVs and sold thousands of units internationally over the years. The Model Y became the electric SUV to beat and forced automakers to innovate to compete.

The Tesla Model Y has become much more expensive after several price hikes, but it’s still an incredible electric SUV. The Model Y can go from 0-60 miles per hour in as little as 3.5 seconds. The Long Range model has an incredible 330 miles of driving range. Car and Driver praises its interior.

The Tesla Model Y isn’t nearly as dominant as it once was, but it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon either.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E is a historic nameplate for the Blue Oval

Who better to compete with Tesla than big three automaker Ford? Ford has produced some of the most popular American pickup trucks and muscle cars of all time. The Blue Oval is going all in on EVs, and the Mustang Mach-E was its first entry into the electric vehicle space. The Mach-E is bold, new, and unapologetic. It combines elements from Ford’s popular Mustang nameplate with all the qualities that make an exciting electric vehicle.

The world’s first electric Mustang SUV became a hit after experiencing plenty of skepticism from critics and consumers. Many Blue Oval fans quickly embraced the new electric SUV after seeing what it is capable of.

The Ford Mustang Mach-E GT goes from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds. The California Route 1 trim has 314 miles of range. The 2021 model year had 305 miles of range, so it’ll be interesting to see how the trim evolves over the years.
