Tesla has been the pioneer in the electric car sector for a while now. But it seems like the new Ford Mustang Mach-E will be the biggest competitor of Tesla, especially Model Y which will be released in 2020.

On Sunday, Ford announced Mustang Mach-E on its official Twitter account by saying, "Zero gas. Zero emissions. 100% exhilaration."

Surprisingly, Elon Musk seemed too happy and pleased with what his competitor has done. 

Of course, it's normal to support everyone in the sector to go electric if your concern is about nature and the environment and not about money.
