  1. California Buyer - when we may actually get to see one?

    My Northern California dealer in Redwood City told me September for their arrival of a demo Mach E.
  2. Official List: No ADM Mach-E Ford Dealers

    Confirmed Towne Ford in Redwood City will be selling at MSRP, and if available at that time will apply the discount for members of the teachers’ union. The salesperson thought their Mach E demo will arrive In September. With this information, my plan is to switch dealers to Towne, take a...
  3. Rt 1 vs Premium

    I’ll still wait to see if the range of the Rt1 versus that of the Premium RWD with the larger battery is close.
  4. Mach E GT no longer available in Infinite Blue

    Removing Infinite Blue from the GT is a head scratcher because it is still being offered on the other versions of the car. The Infinite Blue color on the GT makes it more appealing to me as an understated vehicle capable of hitting 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds while not as ubiquitous as grey or silver.
  5. Rt 1 vs Premium

    I reserved a Rt1 back in February for its range, and thinking that options could help me tailor the car to my requirements. Now I’m not so sure if heated seated and B&O are available options on the Rt1. With the ability to switch models and with my reservation with Ford available through...
  6. Mach-E customer order bank will open June 26!

    Any speculation about Ford’s plans for the unclaimed FEs that do not convert to orders?
  7. Mach-E customer order bank will open June 26!

    If you have a dealer with terms that you like, maybe a call or visit with them will allow you to place an order with Ford before the online tool goes live on 6/30.
  8. Mach-E customer order bank will open June 26!

    So to summarize: At least one of the Mach e forum members converted their reservation to an order for a RWD Premium on June 25th. The online system for folks to order a car on their home computer did not go live today as planned, but will on June 30th. Reservations for the FE will be honored...
  9. Extended Warranty & how to buy one

    I am not considering an extended warranty because I will likely trade in my Mach E after the original warranty expires. If you hold onto a car beyond the warranty period sometimes self insuring by putting the money to be spent on an EW away for future repairs makes more sense. Actuaries...
  10. Mach-E ADM Pricing Shenanigans Begin… Don’t Stand For It!

    In honor of Father’s Day, my dad always told me that someone will always be happy to take you hard earned money, so spend it well. ADM is not spending your money well especially if you can wait or happily switch to another brand.
  11. Mach-E ADM Pricing Shenanigans Begin… Don’t Stand For It!

    I am ordering a California Route 1 that is scheduled to be released in 1Q2021, so I am optimistic that the ADM phase has passed by then at the dealerships. From a negotiation point of view, my current vehicle runs perfect with no expected problems, so an ADM Is simply something that I do not...
  12. 2022 Fisker Ocean anyone?

    I hope Henrik and his team are successful with his new car company. He is an amazing designer but his first go around to start a new car company illustrates how difficult this task is to achieve and sustain.
  13. Any Mach-E questions you want answered?

    I’ll reserve final judgement until it’s my time to change my reservation to an order but I find it hard to believe that a multinational company with revenues of $156B in 2019 would not have a better plan than to have a last minute prototype for a major debut as well as decide at the 11th hour to...
  14. Any Mach-E questions you want answered?

    By using a wrap during the reveal, Ford Europe‘s unsaid message is that the color offerings for the Mach E are poor. Fortunately, my wife and I like the red color option for the Mach E, but given the opportunity without having to spend thousands of dollars on a wrap I would like the satin blue.
  15. Any Mach-E questions you want answered?

    I am not a marketing expert, but why would any car manufacture debut a car in a major market in a color it has no intention of selling?
