Ford unveiled a new electric crossover SUV, the Mustang Mach-E, on Sunday in Los Angeles. Set for release at the end of next year, the Mustang Mach-E’s most high-profile competition will be Tesla‘s Model Y crossover SUV, also due to be released next year.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said the electric-car maker’s primary goal is to speed up the replacement of fossil fuels by sustainable forms of energy, which includes encouraging other automakers to introduce more electric vehicles. He congratulated Ford on the Mustang Mach-E on Monday, saying it would inspire Ford’s competitors to transition away from gas-powered vehicles.

Of course, Musk would likely prefer that electric-vehicle customers choose the Model Y over the Mustang Mach-E.

Here’s how the two vehicles stack up.


The Model Y will be less expensive.

Both the Mustang Mach-E and Model Y will have multiple trims. The least expensive Model Y trim is expected to start at $39,000 and arrive in 2021. The least expensive Mustang Mach-E trim is expected to start at $43,895 and will also be released in 2021.


The Model Y and Mustang Mach-E will have the same maximum range.

Both the Model Y and Mustang Mach-E will have a maximum range of 300 miles, Tesla and Ford have said.


Both will be available next year, though Tesla says the Model Y will be available sooner.

Tesla has said it expects Model Y deliveries to begin next summer, while Ford is targeting late next year for the first Mustang Mach-E deliveries.


It is not yet clear which vehicle will have quicker acceleration.

Tesla has said the quickest Model Y trim will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Ford said it is targeting a 0-60 time “in the mid three-second range” for the quickest version of the Mustang Mach-E, but did not specify the exact time it hopes to achieve.


The Model Y will be able to seat more people.

The Model Y will be able to seat up to seven adults, Tesla has said, while Ford said the Mustang Mach-E will be able to seat five.


The Model Y will have more cargo space.

The Model Y will have a maximum of 66 cubic feet of cargo space, Tesla has said, while Ford said the Mustang Mach E will have up to 64.4 cubic feet of cargo space.


The Model Y will be able to charge faster.

The Model Y will be able to receive 168 miles from a 15-minute charge at a Tesla Supercharger station, Tesla has said. Ford said the Mustang Mach-E will be able to receive 47 miles of range from a 10-minute charge at a DC fast-charging station.


The Model Y will have access to more charging stations.

Both Model Y and Mustang Mach-E customers will have access to public charging stations from companies like ChargePoint, Electrify America, and EVGo, but Model Y customers will also have access to Tesla’s Supercharger charging stations, which are not compatible with non-Tesla vehicles.

Tesla has over 1,600 Supercharger stations and over 14,400 plugs in North America.


Some of the Mustang Mach-E’s tech features appear to be inspired by Tesla.

Many settings on the Mustang Mach-E will be controlled through a 15.5-inch touchscreen, the vehicle will be able to receive over-the-air software updates, and owners will be able to open the vehicle with their phones. All three features have long been available in Tesla vehicles, and will be included in the Model Y.


Both will have semi-autonomous driver-assistance systems.

Ford

Both the Model Y and Mustang Mach-E will have semi-autonomous driver-assistance systems that can handle steering, braking, and acceleration in some circumstances, though the systems require driver supervision at all times. Tesla’s system, Autopilot, has some optional features, like the ability to make lane changes, that Ford’s system, Co-Pilot360 Assist, does not.

I tried every single breakfast at McDonald’s and ranked them from worst to best

McDonald’s has several options for hungry customers looking to start their day off right, and many of those items are also available around the clock as a part of an all-day breakfast menu.

Continuing my stomach-first exploration of the chain’s entire menu, I visited several locations in New York City and New Jersey over the course of a couple of weeks and tried every available offering.

Here’s every single breakfast item at McDonald’s, ranked from worst to best.

Note: Prices are based on my local New York City McDonald’s location.


Sausage Biscuit — $1.79

caption
The one I had was dry, in my opinion.
source
Benetta P/Yelp

This was the first of many sausage-and-biscuit items I tried and, in my opinion, the one I had was just flat-out not good.

I felt the biscuit was over-baked and hard, and the sausage was very dry. Of all of the menu items, this was easily the worst in my book.


Sausage Burrito — $1.39

caption
I felt the wrap was too thin to hold the filling.
source
Andrew LaSane

The Sausage Burrito was made with one scrambled egg, sausage, cheese, green chiles, red peppers, onions, and a soft flour tortilla.

I was pretty disappointed with this one. The paper-thin wrap provided no structure for the small burrito, and I felt that the taste of the filling was bland. I won’t be ordering this ever again.


Egg McMuffin — $3.99

caption
This dish wasn’t very exciting to me.
source
Andrew LaSane

The Egg McMuffin breakfast sandwich comes with a puck-shaped egg, a toasted English muffin, cheese, and a slice of Canadian bacon.

Before I bit into it, I did not realize that there was meat inside, even though it’s clearly shown in advertisements. Unlike in the photo, the Canadian bacon on my sandwich was smaller than the egg and was basically invisible.

Usually I’d be delighted by the unexpected addition of meat, but unfortunately, all I could really taste was egg yolk and a doughy muffin.


Sausage McMuffin — $2.49

caption
The corners of the slice of cheese were cold when I bit into this.

Andrew LaSane

Just ahead of the Egg McMuffin in this taste test, the Sausage McMuffin also had a chewy muffin with tasty sausage and cheese sandwiched in between.

The corners of the cheese that weren’t touching the meat were cold, but overall I liked this sandwich much more than its Canadian-bacon cousin.


Sausage McMuffin with Egg — $3.49

caption
Two steps forward, one step back.
source
Andrew LaSane

The added egg elevated this sandwich slightly, but the muffin I had was burnt at the edges and the sausage was barely warm, which knocked this sandwich down a few pegs in my book.

In positive contrast to the Egg McMuffin, the eggs here did not taste 100% like yolk to me. I thought they were instead moist and savory.


McChicken Biscuit — $2.50

caption
This needed a sauce, in my opinion.
source
Andrew LaSane

A relatively new addition to the menu, the McChicken Biscuit consists of a chicken patty on a biscuit with no additional condiments.

The one I ordered was not as moist as I had hoped, hence the low ranking, but the taste was not bad.

I ended up adding a packet of jelly to it, which improved the dryness and added some flavor.


Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Bagel — $4.19

caption
It was filling, but I couldn’t really taste the sauce.
source
Andrew LaSane

The first thing to meet my teeth and taste buds, naturally, was the bagel. The bagel had some substance but wasn’t too thick.

Between the two halves of the plain bagel was a sausage patty, folded egg, two slices of cheese, and something that McDonald’s calls “breakfast sauce.” The sauce helped add moisture, but I could not isolate the flavors of it from the rest of the sandwich.

I think this would be a good option for someone looking for something more filling than a biscuit or McMuffin.


Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Bagel — $4.19

caption
The bacon was nice and crisp.
source
Andrew LaSane

Basically all of my thoughts about the sausage option apply here, only I preferred the crispy bite of the bacon over the softer sausage that day.


Hash Brown — $1.99

caption
In my opinion, it needed more salt.
source
Andrew LaSane

The hash brown that I ordered was warm and, in my opinion, under-salted.

Sure, it was pretty good because it’s a crispy fried potato, but I think it needed seasoning.


Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait — $1.89

caption
The portion was smaller than I expected, but I enjoyed it.
source
Andrew LaSane

The Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait comes with a layer of creamy non-fat yogurt on top of blueberries and strawberries.

The serving was smaller than I expected, but the fruit tasted fine and there was just enough in proportion to the yogurt for an even mix.

McDonald’s also included a small packet of granola with the order, which I think was necessary to offset the sweetness of the yogurt.


Chicken McGriddle — $2.69

caption
The chicken wasn’t as crispy as it looked, in my opinion.
source
Andrew LaSane

Consisting solely of the two things in its name (chicken and griddle pancakes), the Chicken McGriddle had some great flavors but I felt it was too dry.

In my opinion, the syrupy taste of the spongy McGriddle was subtle and pleasant but, unfortunately, the chicken was not as crispy as it looked.

Overall, I thought the chicken needed to be crunchier and I felt the McGriddle patties were a bit too chewy in an unpleasant way.


Sausage Biscuit with Egg — $3.99

caption
I liked the Sausage Biscuit with Egg, but I think it needed cheese.
source
Andrew LaSane

The biscuit was golden and buttery and the sausage was just as flavorful as it was in the other dishes … but when I tasted the breakfast sandwich there was a disconnect between what my brain expected and what I tasted.

It wasn’t until I later tasted the Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit that I realized that this sandwich was missing a key ingredient: cheese.

In my opinion, this dish needs cheese to add flavor and texture, so I sympathize with those who are lactose intolerant or who don’t eat cheese.


Sausage, Egg, and Cheese McGriddle — $3.89

caption
The syrupy flavors mixed well with the spicy sausage.

Andrew LaSane

What’s better than sausage, egg, and cheese on a bagel? Try a sweet, syrupy, spongy McGriddle.

The evenly folded egg, cheddar-cheese slice, and well-spiced patty made for a balanced bite. I could not stop after just one taste and I happily finished the sandwich before moving on to the next menu item.


Bacon, Egg, and Cheese McGriddle — $4.19

caption
For me, this one had a tie with the Sausage, Egg, and Cheese McGriddle.
source
Andrew LaSane

I know this is supposed to be a ranking, but the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese McGriddle was dead even with the sausage variant for me

I usually prefer bacon to sausage, but both (tried two days apart) won me over and I simply could not choose between them. Both are delicious blends of meat, cheese, egg, and syrupy, spongy goodness.


Fruit and Maple Oatmeal — $2.49

caption
I was pleasantly surprised by this dish.
source
Andrew LaSane

The Fruit and Maple Oatmeal at McDonald’s comes in a small cup with two separate packets: one with diced apples and another with cranberries and raisins.

Sure, this isn’t my number-one pick, but I was incredibly surprised by this dish.

To be fair, prior to tasting it, I was 100% sure that I hated oatmeal – probably because of one ill-fated bite of the instant stuff over 20 years ago – but this dish actually proved me wrong.

The texture was mostly creamy but also a little chewy because of the oats. The apple chunks were juicy, the maple was subtle and not at all overpowering, and the cranberries were tart and sweet.

Will I opt for oatmeal with good toppings over other breakfast options in the future? Maybe.


Hotcakes — $3.19

caption
The hotcakes came with whipped butter and syrup.
source
Andrew LaSane

With the first bite, I instantly got nostalgia-inducing public-school-cafeteria vibes, which is very much a compliment in my book.

These came with whipped butter and a small container of hotcake syrup, but even without condiments, I could taste the sugar in the fluffy hotcakes.


Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit — $4.59

caption
The cheese was the perfect finish.
source
Andrew LaSane

As I mentioned earlier, the cheese makes all the difference in this biscuit, egg, and sausage sandwich.

That said, it’s a bit lower on the list because the sausage I got didn’t seem like it was cooked long enough, in my opinion. Other sausage patties I tried were a bit more crispy and warm, so I’m going to chalk this patty up to a bad morning in the kitchen.


Egg and Cheese Biscuit — $2.79

caption
This was nearly perfect in my book.
source
Andrew LaSane

The buttery crispy biscuit, fluffy egg, and slice of cheese were a great mix of flavors, and the sandwich itself was the perfect size for an on-the-go morning meal.

The Egg and Cheese Biscuit that I tasted was almost perfect, and if you keep scrolling to my number-one pick, you’ll see what I felt that missing ingredient was.


Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit — $3.89

caption
The bacon was on the thin side, but it was delicious.
source
Andrew LaSane

This dish consisted of two pieces of bacon, one folded egg, and melted cheese on a buttermilk biscuit.

In my opinion, the only thing that would have made this one better is another slice of bacon.

My only qualm is that the official description for the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit refers to the Applewood smoked bacon as “thick-cut” which is a stretch because I thought it was pretty thin.

That said, the combination of salty meat with a crispy yet flaky biscuit, fluffy egg, and fully melted slice of cheese was so good that the thickness of the bacon didn’t matter much.

  • WeWork’s bonds due 2025 fell to a new low of 71 cents Monday, Bloomberg reported.
  • The same day, WeWork Chairman Marcelo Claure said that layoffs will begin this week. Roughly 4,000 employees could be out of a job.
  • In addition, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is reviewing the company for potential violations.
  • And, WeWork lost $1.3 billion in the third quarter, more than double its losses in the same quarter in 2018.
  • Read more on Business Insider.

WeWork’s bonds have fallen to yet another fresh low as investors grow increasingly worried that the company won’t be able to repay its debt.

The company’s $669 million in notes due in 2025 fell to 71 cents each on Monday, sliding more than three cents to the new low, Bloomberg reported, citing Trace data. The yield on the bonds is now more than 16%.

A string of bad news is eroding investor confidence in the company, already low after a failed initial public offering attempt in September cut WeWork’s valuation to $8 billion from $47 billion.

On Monday, WeWork Chairman Marcelo Claure said that layoffs will begin “in earnest” this week. It’s expected that the company could lay off around 4,000 people, roughly a third of the its total employees.

The announcement from Claure came after reports Friday that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is reviewing whether the company violated any financial rules in the months leading up to its IPO flop. A preliminary inquiry is looking at WeWork’s business and its disclosures to stakeholders, Bloomberg reported.

And Thursday, a company earnings presentation showed that WeWork lost $1.3 billion in the third quarter, versus $500 million in the same quarter a year ago.
