  1. CNET Roadshow: Mach-E Mustang AWD First Ride Review! (Winter Driving)

    Different suspension settings would relate more the GT magnaride equipped versions, however steering feel should be available under a custom mode, which is really just mix and matching the settings from the main 3 modes, this is what you get is other vehicles that have a custom mode. It is...
  2. CNET Roadshow: Mach-E Mustang AWD First Ride Review! (Winter Driving)

    Good to see they are taking the chassis dynamics seriously, still hopeful that the home team version actually gets the same setup as the euro version as there is plenty of time till release. Something that is probably a bit late for release but something ford should really be considering as an...
  3. First Model Year Build Quality

    With a lot of longer warranties, it can be a mixed bag if manufactures actually honor it as there is plenty of leeway for them to weasel out of fixing issues. When it comes to the build quality as long as the plant transfer from fiesta to mach-e goes well I imagine we should be fine, ford are...
  4. "Ford Exit Warning Warns Cyclists When A Door Is Opening"

    With the electronic door opening on the mach-e they could easily tie the opening to the parking sensors to help assist those inattentive people, had many a close call on when out riding a bicycle over here with idiots blinding opening doors. That is the one negative point with the location of...
  5. Mach-E GT vs GT Performance

    Regen can also be disabled if the battery is cold, generally anything could impact charging rate when plugged in will also have an impact on how much regen can be dumped into the battery. Come barreling down a huge hill on a cold morning I want some brakes that won't bat an eye lid over having...
  6. Mach-E GT vs GT Performance

    Like others I assumed the performance option would offer magnaride the forged 20" wheels and up rated brakes. BEV's are very heavy and should really have brakes for hauling all the weight down multiple times to match the expected acceleration especially in times when regen is not possible due to...
  7. AWD Mach-E Shows Off Abilities in Snow & Ice Track Testing

    Wheels look have to have the same desing as one of the 20" wheels you could purchase for the edge in Europe. https://shop.ford.co.uk/collections/alloy-wheels/products/alloy-wheel-20-5-x-2-spoke-design-ultra-bright-machined-face-with-premium-painted-pockets Of course ford have reused designs in...
  8. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    Depending on where you are the problem with a lot of long journeys is that at highway speeds the range really starts to suffer. There are a few hard core teslas owners at work and one of the reasons a few ended up getting a hybrid to do the longer journeys was that when there where a lot of...
  9. First look at Apple CarPlay & Trip Info screens in SYNC 4A on Mach-E

    As the actual volume symbol is on the screen I do hope that the dial can be contextual similar to what has been used by jaguar / range rover as it would nice to cycle through some of the HVAC controls and use the dial instead.
  10. Black Mach-E spotted in Canada

    Typically own black cars, still plenty of time to make up my mind only problem I have with the black is the clear tails lights really stand grate if you like that, not so much if you don't other. Other issue is that the black is shadow black, my RS is shadow while my ST is tuxedo when they are...
  11. Mach-E Battery Reverse Engineered

    The battery pack is bolted in from the bottom so can easily be removed. This is one of the plus points to BEV which are really limited by battery tech as newer batteries with increased density arrive hopefully at some point in the future it will be probably not be that hard to swap in a newer...
  12. Range cost analysis, Tesla, Porsche, Mach E

    While CA enforcing charging by the kwh rather than time is good, as with everything chargers will still be grand fathered in to time based nonsense and will be for a very long time. When it comes to long journeys only tesla gets it, the rest haven't got a clue and it is embarrassing, sure it...
  13. First Production Mach-E Model? [Update: This Is First Assembly Line Made Pre-Production Unit]

    It is normally not attached and is left in the trunk then gets installed at the dealer, for both my ST and RS I told the dealer you attached that and I walk. For the RS I attached the front plate using the tow hook while for the ST the plate holder some some clips to attach to the front grill so...
  14. Mach-E Makes UK Debut in Stunning Satin Blue

    While the original blue was an expensive multi-layer that was too cost prohibitive for production bu the current ford performance blue is actually quite close for a production paint. The mach-e production is pretty much going battery constrained for the foreseeable future and it is priced at a...
  15. One Pedal driving Mach-E? Are you a fan?

    The taycan actually has a few modes for PRM only when it is set to off will you get coasting, otherwise you will get moderate regen when you lift off, there is also an auto mode which has adaptive regen using the cameras to adjust the amount. As long as we have options I am fine, I am in the...
  16. Is the Mach-E really 7 years behind Tesla?

    The only area where tesla are miles ahead is the charging network everyone else is limited to 3rd party options and as much as the manufactures are attempting to improves that with trying to simplify the access for the end user, it is still hopeless and until it matches the same experience as...
  17. One Pedal driving Mach-E? Are you a fan?

    In any car that only has two pedals then I automatically use both feet and left foot brake so I would prefer to continue on as normal. I like porches approach with the taycan you want to slow down you push the brake pedal if that is achieved via regeneration or the friction brakes should be...
  18. Mach-E Makes UK Debut in Stunning Satin Blue

    Well lets hope so as most doesn't sound very convincing to me, on the auto car test drive video even the ford test driver commented on different tires and the need to concentrate on high speed handling for Europe compared to the USA. Ford can make a great handling car, the problem is actually...
  19. Why Tesla's Direct approach to sales will fail

    If direct sales was a failure then amazon would have gone the way of the dodo long ago. Going to the store is an alien concept to a whole generation, a generation that will have little interest in the 'joys' of the dealership experience. The whole point of the dealership is the supposed...
  20. Mach-E Inefficiency a...good thing?

    Most mini vans probably won't accelerate as fast a mach-e. I am more concerned with the tires when it comes to cornering doesn't matter how fancy you get with brake torque vectoring you can't beat physics when it comes to getting that much bulk to turn. Yes we have the advantage of a low center...
