In September DR. Sian Proctor wrote history as the first dark-skinned pilot of a spacecraft during a SpaceX mission. Arrived on earth, however, she decided against one of Elon Musk’s e-car and for a Ford.
As the geoscientist, who was part of the Inspiration4 crew, announced on Twitter this week, she chose a Ford Mustang Mach-E. This led to some amazement in their followers.
No swipe against Elon Musk
Proctor explained that her car wool was not a swipe against SpaceX and Tesla boss Elon Musk, but had to do with the practicality of the Ford. "Tesla is a great company and I love SpaceX. But in my purchase decision, various factors played a role. A year ago I was divorced, broke and lived with my brother. What difference can make a year! I am full of gratitude for my first e-car and believe that we work more closely together in a better world", So Proctor continues.
E-Mustang is cheaper and qualified for tax credit
What she also convinced was the quick availability of the car, the lower price and a 7.500 dollar tax credit for which the electro -mustang – in contrast to the Tesla models – qualifies. Although she loved her test drive with the Tesla, the combination of the various factors ultimately convinced her of the Mustang Mach-E, commented on the former NASA candidate.

Due to the strong sales figures for Tesla in recent years, the company has already fully exhausted its tax credit quota for buyers of e-cars. Ford, on the other hand, has the limit of 200.000 e-vehicles sold not yet reached, which is why e-Ford customers like Sian Proctor still over 7.500 dollar tax credit can look forward to.
