Default Mach-E vs Model Y

Welp, it's time to ditch the old Accord and get my wife a new car.
We're debating either the Mach-E or the Model Y with the Ford car having the advantage of 7.5k in federal tax incentives.
What do you folks think?

If I were looking to get an EV, I would have to go with Tesla, because they have the best charging infrastructure.

The Tesla. Why? Look at the charging network vs what the Mach-E will have access to.

Their gripes were more about the charging network than anything else. That was in Ontario and not sure it is as relevant for OP seeing as they are in California (even if it is lacking behind Tesla in general).

I understand that but you are essentially overpaying for a Ford Edge.

To be fair the charging infrastructure in Canadia sucks balls.
Eventually it'll get to a good point (who knows how long...)but you cant really live with an EV only outside of some major cities up here.

Even worse was the fact that the Throttle House guys were paying by the minute instead of KwH. Although the one dude did say there was a law change taking place.
