    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    My thoughts exactly. A better chance that lawmakers can extend a rebate given the COVID situation, than Ford can increase production timelines without a risk in quality issues. I'm hoping that Michigan may actually offer an incentive/rebate for 2021 to support a quality Ford BEV product. Or at...

    The key thing for the "not a Mustang" crowd that they don't realize

    Did anyone watch the Mach-E webex?

    No real new information. The only "nugget" I caught was the aerodynamic drag coefficient "surpassed the bechmarks" and even the designers were a bit surprised by the numbers. But obviously, they did not give any numbers.

    2021 Mach-E Mustang Online Buying Process Detailed

    Michigan law prevents manufacturer direct sales dating back to people nearby plants that could get cars cheaper and no delivery fees, leaving dealerships in the cold. Dealer associations lobbied for the law to level the playing field. Tesla tried to change things in MI without luck. To work...

    Mach-E First Edition Ride Along Review and Q&A from Site Member/Enthusiast

    Gentex has been making electrochromatic windows for the Boeing "Dreamliner" and this article from CES 2020 mentions crossing over to panoramic glass roofs for vehicles. Perhaps our MME's may be one of their first ventures?

    Beat the Rush. Order a vanity plate yet?

    Most of the MME, Stang, pony plates were already spoken for in Michigan, likely due to those in Dearborn. So I opted for something a little different. (Apparently it can be read 2 different ways?)
