  1. Reviews are going to happen. Whose do you want to see/read first?

    What have they said? @Nak, Motortrend takes no advertising money from Tesla yet they've been very fair and unbiased, imo, with their coverage of the Californian auto company. From Motortrend Car of the Year, to Car of the Decade, to Ultimate Car of the Year, that magazine has heaped praise on...
  2. Reviews are going to happen. Whose do you want to see/read first?

    Ben Sullins from Teslanomics said he estimated 250-270 miles of range. That was before the EPA range was made official. @Nak, how many data points do you need before you reevaluate your position that the Porsche Taycan's 201 EPA mile range is correct?
  3. EPA Range for Porsche Taycan is 201 Miles

    Motortrend just did their own instrumented range test of the Turbo S and came back back with: Normal mode: 240 city 274 highway 254 combined miles https://www.motortrend.com/news/2020-porsche-taycan-turbo-s-instrumented-range-test/
  4. Mach-e 99 kwh Battery: How did they do it?

    KIA, Hyundai, GM, Nissan, Peugeot and others haven't had a problem getting excellent range out of their battery packs. The Kona Electric and Bolt EV are at basically 260 EPA miles on mid-60kWh packs. Even taking into account the vehicle size difference, exceeding 270 miles on 90kWh of available...
  5. Mach-e 99 kwh Battery: How did they do it?

    I agree with your conclusions. That aligns with what I've seen on YouTube and seems reasonable enough. Small niggle though, you are confusing kWh (energy) and kW(power). To reduce confusion, think of it this way. kW = horsepower kWh = gasoline The Mustang Mach-E has a 210kW (282hp) main...
  6. Mustang Mach E is a Gamechanger - Here is Why (vs TESLA)

    If I could hook up to a nozzle that gave me 1 gallon of gas every hour for free wherever I drove to (grocery store, movie theater, zoo, etc), I'd be insane not to take advantage of it.
  7. Mach-E Inefficiency a...good thing?

    Even a minivan like the Pacifica has 235s. Acceleration, cornering, braking, etc would be negatively affected by skinny tires. Hard to take advantage of that low slung center of gravity if the tires can't hold a line. Compare the Mach-E's 225s to the Model Y's 255 and the I-PACE has 235-255...
  8. Mach-E Inefficiency a...good thing?

    I am wondering about tire width. The demo units they've got are on 225mm wide tires. At 4900 lbs, I wonder if that's a wide enough contact patch to quickly stop so much mass.
  9. AutoTrader UK review from UK Launch

    As a GT owner, the reviewer seemed a bit reluctant to call it a Mustang and at one point even differentiated it from "real Mustangs". That said, he seemed like he ended up liking it even though he didn't really want to.
  10. Deciding between a standard or extended range battery

    Right. 240V chargers are like 20-30 miles of range per hour. So use them as destination chargers to recharge overnight if you're on a trip or in your garage for daily driving.
  11. Ford Reiterates Deliveries of First Edition or Premium Mach-E Expected Late This Year. GT Will Arrive Summer 2021

    You could actually flip that on its head and use it as a doorbuster sales tactic. Bundle say 500-1000kWh of charging for three years to goose sales out of the gate to really get the ball rolling. Considering Ford spends like $2.3B per year on advertising and Ford knows that Tesla killed it...
  12. Deciding between a standard or extended range battery

    The sheet says 7.2kW so on an ER battery, going from 10% -> 80% will be about 60-70kWh of energy (depending on the buffer). Figure about 8-10 hours.
  13. Ford Reiterates Deliveries of First Edition or Premium Mach-E Expected Late This Year. GT Will Arrive Summer 2021

    Audi is giving owners 1000kWh of EA charging per year for four years. Porsche gets three years of free charging. VW will do the something similar, I bet, since EA is owned by VAG. Since Ford and VW are buddy-buddy with partnerships in EVs, autonomy and DC Fast Charging stations with Ionity, I...
  14. Mustang Mach E is a Gamechanger - Here is Why (vs TESLA)

    You floor it in an EV because it's a rollercoaster on-demand. It's just so much fun. Until the last month or so, Tesla had a monopoly on that such that it is called the "Tesla Smile". The first time I experienced that thrilling exhilaration in a non-Performance Model S, I laughed so hard in...
  15. Mustang Mach E is a Gamechanger - Here is Why (vs TESLA)

    Have you had a car worth flooring since Jimmy Carter? I will punch the accelerator in my Outback and all 175hp complains about it. It's lame and I want to have a car that's fun. Ford is coming to yours and my rescue and I can't wait.
  16. Why I chose a Mach-E over the Tesla Model Y

    I am a big fan of Tesla. I find their fanboys to be insufferable. When I watched that video last week, I decided against sharing it on the forum because of just how biased it was. Just a few things off the top of my head that I had a problem with for Jonathan's video: Did not compare dealer...
  17. Mach-E Inefficiency a...good thing?

    I don't think it's that high. One of the EV reviewers who went to the November reveal and attended the MME Tech exposition said Ford estimated around 10% of the battery would be reserved. With the weight being revealed at around 4900 lbs, I think we'll be seeing Model S/X-like efficiency numbers.
  18. Will Ford Respond to revised 315mi range for Model Y?

    Oooof, Mustang Mach-E is a hefty Clydesdale with its weight being comparable to a Model S but quite a bit lighter than a Model X. Model S LR+ is 4,883 lbs Model X LR+ is 5,421 lbs
  19. Does anyone wish to share their X PLan and Lease Rebate using Federal Tax Credit On Mach E Orders

    Not that @dbsb3233 is giving tax advice, but that sounds like free money to me.
