    This makes me envision a Christopher Nolan-style Batmobile ("Tumbler") and batpod...
  2. Shopping for a Home Charger

    Has anyone heard any updates about the Grizzl-E Smart Classic? They mentioned news would be coming the last week of October...still debating between Juicebox and Grizzl-E. I don't foresee myself using smart features right away, since the MME can do its own scheduling. But who knows how our grid...
  3. Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    Can I just say how relieved I am that COVID didn't explode through employees in the Cuautitlan plant when they reopened? Like when Tesla (among their many other shady labor practices) just plowed ahead and opened their Fremont factory early? At the end of the day, this car is still a luxury...
  4. Has anyone gotten confirmation their Machdrop FE is in the order book yet?

    Just spoke to my dealer - my FE is in their order bank too! No VIN or production date yet, but this feels like big progress.
  5. Active Drive Assist will cost $1,400 (says Autoline Daily)

    That's not bad at all - maybe they will offer one when they formally launch, but I was worried it was going to be a subscription model like Supercruise. THAT would be annoying.
  6. Illuminated Front Pony?

    Cool! I really want the range, pano roof I'm getting on the premium/FE, but that GT "grille" really makes the car look spectacular, in my opinion
  7. GRABBER BLUE Mach-E Club

    Thanks for sharing! That is an awesome video. Totally intrigued by those blinking IR sensors (I assume) on the steering column. Part of the driver monitoring system for the eventual self-driving OTA?
  8. Has anyone gotten confirmation their Machdrop FE is in the order book yet?

    Nothing here either. Finally got my dealer to submit the paper buyer's order correctly and confirm that I got a Mach Drop slot back when this silliness went down. He just emailed me to let me know that nothing is in WEBDO yet. My online dashboard still has my premium order...
  9. Idris Elba Mustang Mach E commercial How did I miss this?

    I saw it run again during the Kentucky Derby broadcast! Apparently I can't stop prattling on about it, because my mother-in-law actually saw it first then called me into the room to see it.
  10. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    Disclaimer, I know this is a first-world problem, that I want a different $60K car sooner than later. But I feel like I am going insane. After the dealer called me, I called Susan again at program HQ, and she seemed legitimately pissed that the dealer wouldn't agree to place an order for the FE...
  11. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    Sigh. Heard back again from my dealer who said he is still being told this is for celebs and influencers, even though whomever I talked to at HQ effectively said since I called on day 1, I would be able to place my order soon for an FE. I was really starting to get attached to the idea of...
  12. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    Long-time lurker (and Premium reservation holder) but I registered to share my kind of hilarious experience trying to upgrade to an FE. I called the number in the OP, and the woman who answered was very polite, very helpful, and instructed me to call my dealer. Similarly, my dealer contact...
