el presente v. el futuro

Hola a todos:

¿Se usa el presente para referirse a una accion futuristica en España como en México?

Por ejemplo,

Lo hago=I'll do it en lugar de "lo voy a hacer"/Lo haré
Te ayudo=I'll help you en lugar de "Te voy a ayudar"/Te ayudaré

Gracias

Si, muchas veces puedes usar el presente para decir algo que vas a hacer. Eso no se limita a México. Yo lo pienso así:

Lo hago - I'll do it
Lo haré - I will do it
Lo voy a hacer - I'm going to do it

Espero eso te ayude.
