I hope this car sells well. It will increase the momentum for building charging infrastructure. From the perspective of a potential buyer though, road tripping possibilities will be inconvenient at best compared to a Tesla, and very inconvenient compared to a gasoline car.

47 miles in 10 minutes on a 150 kW charger. That doesn't sound like it's very efficient in terms of MPGe or watt/hours per mile. And how many 150 kW CCS chargers are out there right now? Here in the Detroit metro area, Ford's own back yard, electrify america just recently opened two locations with 150 kW CCS chargers, but most CCS charging is only 50kw. There are only a few Tesla Superchargers but still, the overall network is better.

Just like the Porsche Taycan, compared to Tesla it will compete on acceleration and performance (in some trims at least), but will be far behind on charging and efficiency, while slightly behind on range.

With the $7500 tax credit available it will be comparable price or a bit cheaper but that depends on how Ford does the option packages.
