  1. Tuning the Mach-E

    I think once EVs become more mainstream you're going to see homebrew/jailbreaked versions of the respective car's OSes. It's just a matter of time. You might even see a piggybacked tuning system or flashed like a COBB system, or Hondata, or something like that. Granted Ford or Tesla or whoever...
  2. Grabber Blue Now Available For Mach-E GT in Build & Price Configurator!

    Ugh I really like this color, but probably will stick with black. If I was younger, or just wanted to stand out I'd probably get it. Over time, I think I'd get tired of it though.
  3. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    I could buy the 7 years statement in Tesla's skunkworks or experimental divisions only because they've been doing it for a while and most importantly they can attract that kind of talent. Tesla also has the means of production and build relationships for the supply chain. In that way they are...
  4. Mach E effect on Ford stock price?

    I'd only invest in a stock if I believed in the company and/or its mission. The recent news of Ford's problems and my personal experience with them would say not to buy any stock. However I did reserve the Mustang because I believe its an attractive EV option by Ford, and ironically like it...
  5. First Production Mach-E Model? [Update: This Is First Assembly Line Made Pre-Production Unit]

    I was looking for the front tow hitch and it looks like it is on the passenger side to the left? of the license plate. That's where I'll probably put the plate... not sure yet.
  6. "GT Performance" Pricing in Canada

    AFAIK the "up to" $7500 federal tax rebate is good for any EV that has not yet sold 200,000 units AND provided you owe that much in tax. State rebates vary. I wouldn't qualify for California's $2000 rebate because the sales price is above $60000. However SCE gives you a $1K rebate if you are a...
  7. "GT Performance" Pricing in Canada

    That is interesting, but I think that in the US a performance model; magneride, software for faster 0-60, and other extras would be about 5k-6k more at least. That's what the current performance pack is on the current Mustang GT. I'd say a Mach-E GT with Performance pack would be somewhere...
  8. Why Tesla's Direct approach to sales will fail

    Although like another poster said, there are pros and cons to traditional dealers, I don't think I've ever had a "great" relationship with a dealer. My greatest short term concern with buying the Mach-E is the possibility of a markup (adm). This will never happen with a Tesla. Granted, you...
  9. How Ford is Planning For a Smooth Mach-E Launch

    I'll have to admit the money Ford lost last quarter is pretty worrying. Though I'm glad it sounds like they're getting back on track. If the Mach-E does well and that spills over to say an electric F-150 then I can see Ford turning things around really quick.
  10. The TFLNow boys with the Mach-E

    Tribes are so stupid. I LOVE Tesla and what they are doing. I might even buy a Model Y in addition the the Mach-E, but crapping on the Mach-E is just ridiculous. For so many reasons. I'd be willing to bet not one of the commentors even owns a Tesla. So far the Mach-E is the best competition...
  11. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Honestly that is close enough. But to this day it isn't clear (to me) what will be included in a performance package. Now the reservation page says under 4 seconds, when I could have sworn it was 3.5 (targeted) when I reserved. Or maybe I was just blinded by excitement.
  12. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    I'd cancel if there was a markup/price hike. I'd cancel if the stats were worse. I'm pre-ordering because the GT is supposed to be around 3.5 seconds 0-60 and I like the stock rims. If there are too many things behind the "performance package" paywall I may back out.
  13. Excellent Q&A with Ford/Mach-E Electric Vehicle Engineer

    To be fair, it's pretty clear that the EV space will explode in the next 5-10 years. Greater leaps will be made and cars will have cooler features, go faster, charge faster and have longer ranges. ICE, although it's had it's efficiency upped in the past few years, in part to smaller engines...
  14. Why I chose a Mach-E over the Tesla Model Y

    Hi Tish, I saw your video on another EV blog and liked it quite a bit. To be honest I like any Mach E/Model Y content because there isn't much new to talk about right now. I agree with most of your points, but most of them are pretty subjective. I like the styling of the Mach E better, and...
  15. Mach-E GT vs Premium

    I kinda want to see the Mach-E lifted now with some big tires. However I don't think there's a "snow" or "dirt" mode for the AWD? It sounds like it will work how a base Subaru works albeit controller electronically? Anyway I'm a bit bummed it's not like a Crosstrek, however I see the Mach-E...
  16. Mach-E vs ICE cars: Escape, Edge, HR-V, CR-V, C-HR, RAV4, Trax, Equinox, Crosstek, Forester, Rogue

    We're planning on buying a Rav4 Prime as well, most likely in the fall. We were looking at the Hybrid, but if the tax credits pan out it may end up being cheaper....or at least very close. My hope is that it starts around 40k. But just like Ford if the tax credit is offered, it may inflate the...
  17. Mach-E GT vs Premium

    I also believe, per the brochure, or media kit, (I forget where) the Mako seats are on the performance edition only as well. I could be, and hope to be wrong. More speculation by me, but the GT performance edition may be faster through an electronic tune, or the "base" GT may be electronically...
  18. Forbes Article Surveys Buyers: Mach-E Mustang or Tesla Model Y

    For me, its a mix. I don't NOT trust Tesla, but I don't necessarily trust Ford 100%. I do believe that Tesla has had some growing pains and some fit and finish issues, and I trust Ford to have straighter body panels for example. I think the fit and finish of the Mach-E will be a little better...
  19. Ford brings Mach-E to CES

    Yeah in the renders and pre-order page it looks silver/grey. In pictures it looks black. I think in certain angles it could look silver, but for the most part its just black. I don't think you'll be able to get the GT "grille" on the select or premium because it looks like the GT has a totally...
  20. Is Ford Sandbagging the Mach-E's Performance Specs?

    In the official press release, it states that Ford is shooting for "under 4-seconds" for the GT and the 3.5 0-60 with the GT Performance Pack. So I'm spitballing that either the 459 figure is either going to be electronically detuned or boosted depending on the configuration. It seems cheaper...
