Reviews from the media event participants can't be published until both media events are complete (the Detroit one last week and the CA one next week). That way participants don't have to rush to one-up each other and put out a sloppy review. They have time to do them full justice this way...
I've checked my demand periods, and they're always in the afternoon. I'll just set the Mach-E to charge after 10pm or something. Did the calculation and it will never draw enough to surpass the afternoon peaks and become the new demand peak.
The Detroit event where they showed 7 cars lined up had 2 reds. The trailer above shows 3 reds (at least). Looks like there could be more cars this time. Which probably makes sense for CA. Probably more media showing up.
Oh, you mean the 2nd media event. That makes sense. Forgot about that. Probably the same vehicles that were at the Detroit media event. The CA one was scheduled for Dec 10-12, I think? Just a few days prior to the review embargo lifting on Dec 15.

For years, those of us who follow electric vehicles closely and get excited about every stage of the electric revolution...
That's a great question. There's various screens on my Escape that have dark lines running through them when I wear my sunglasses (which is most of the time when in the car). I assume it's some sort of polarized coating on the plastic display covers.
Some of it is whether people are counting the incremental rate (just the next kWh), or counting all the fixed charges in there too. Here's my last bill...
If I divide usage over the full bill, I'm paying $0.135/kWh. But the incremental rate is just $0.0995/kWh.
In this case, I only count...
There's room for about 4000 cars on the plant lots, not even counting the diagonally striped lots that are presumably employee parking. There's almost 2000 "straight-line" spots on the south side lots, and another ~2150 on the northeast lot.
I previously estimated 3500 but doing another count...
I emailed the EV Team to let them know FE isn't showing up on the X-Plan page anymore. Hopefully they'll have someone will look at it and fix it (rather than getting a response saying "Oh, we just decided to exclude FE from X-Plan").
Perhaps, but seems unlikely. The whole point of holding them at the plant until OKTB was that anything found would be easier (cheaper) to fix.
Now seeing so many lined up in that new picture, I suspect they're all still there.
Or they routinely do a master reset on them all before getting ready to ship, to clear anything left over from testing. Might even be a remote command they can broadcast to all of them OTA now.
Might also be a sign OKTB is about to hit today? (pure speculation)
