  1. Why the Mustang Mach E is better than the Tesla Model Y

    Time to step up Ford and go head to head with Tesla. Only a single mention of the Mach e in yesterdays story. Last sentence - Y will be best selling Telsa. Time for some real reviews instead of fluffy marketing talk from Ford. If you have a superior car (which we hope) let people judge you...
  2. Model 3 review from savagegeese

    Totally agree. Reviewer clearly knows a lot about cars from his suspension analysis. Hope Ford has done a good enough job to let someone like this independently review their car. Ford has the design talent to address these issues, especially the user interface - hope they used it ! A little...
  3. Mach-E First Edition Ride Along Review and Q&A from Site Member/Enthusiast

    Along those lines roughly how tall was driver and what is knee/leg position like with foot on accelerator with regard to center console ? From picture is looks like seat is slightly to left which helps keep leg/knee away from console. Great job on test drive! Thanks.
  4. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Partially true, but I had a Tesla S wrecked in Honolulu port prior to 2013 delivery as part of the first shipment of 17 cars - they damaged a total of 5 cars - so no fear of technology here. Tesla gave me a full refund. I just expected a lot more from Ford after years of EV development than...
  5. Motor Trend 2021 Car issue

    This is a real problem for Ford. How could they not have had independent reviews of the car by this time. They have test cars everywhere and best the could do was give journalists a ride around an airport at November launch. The the apparent reluctance to an independent review at this stage...
  6. 2021 Mach-E X-Plan Pricing Released

    This gets you general information. I am sure there is an easier way to access process, especially for Ford employees, but if you only have a MCA PIN here is what i did. Presumably the prices are correct for non-Ford employees. https://www.fordpartner.com/partnerweb/login.do For code enter...
  7. Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    Ford risks loosing control of the narrative with their present communication (lack of) strategy. Overall it looks like they gave little thought to some key design elements as well thinking they weren't going to make that many of these cars. In EV they have to decide if they are in or out...
  8. Volkswagen ID.4 Leaks In China Fully Uncovered

    Factories are under construction now. Issue is LG is suing company building them (successfully so far). Ford and VW expect factories to be fully functional in two years. VW is also moving ID4 production to US at same time frame. Building a factory takes time, especially when you may have...
  9. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    I like the outside better actually and at an expected 182" in length it's just an inch longer than BMW X1 and longer than Niro and Kona EV's. Inside remains to be seen. If this link works at 15 minutes it shows the ID4 coming off the startup line. (Brush up on your German - or read the...
  10. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Posted this on old ID 4 thread. If VW does sell the ID 4 this year Ford Marketing will wish they had their act together sooner. Ford and VW already have announced joint efforts including using the same new battery supplier in Georgia if litigation with LG is resolved in September. Smaller...
  11. Volkswagen ID.4 Leaks In China Fully Uncovered

    ID 4 stated to be in US dealers by year end. Ford already has announced joint programs with VW and they are planning to use the same battery factory being built in Georgia starting in two years...
  12. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Same here after this "FE drop" nonsense. One foot out the door after years of hoping Ford would deliver a car really designed, not copied from Tesla. Sorry Mr. Ford - it is a compliance car. Prove me wrong and still be making them in 5 years with a dash board, not a computer screen hung off...
  13. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    It's not the delivery for me - it's the principle. If Ford values clearing out a few excess red stitched seat covers more than customer loyalty it says a lot about the company. Alternative ? Put those left over seat covers on company or employee cars. I think the message Ford didn't hear...
  14. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    If someone orders a FE new today and gets delivery ahead of someone who reserved a Premium on launch day in November my order is cancelled. I just got an email from Ford corporate addressing my change in address and dealer from when we were first allowed to convert from a reservation to an...
  15. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    Completely agree. Ford corporate should be reaching out to people buying the car with actual information instead if marketing gimmicks. One can only hope the car is better than the marketing. And if Ford sees false and misleading tweets they should notify current reservation and order holders...
