Read this article about the upcoming Bugatti and there was a discussion with the Bugatti design chief where he said;
On the flip side, Anscheidt also laments how boring current EV design has been considering the creative freedom "skateboard" platforms have afforded, even calling the Ford...
I accidentally charged my car to 100% last night and left for work this morning.
Arriving at work after a 7.1 miles journey I still have 100%. Amazing efficiency my journey is not downhill its up and down hills or massive error somewhere.
Anyone else had something like this before?
The first thing I do when I get going in the car is check the OTA screen to see if there
Is an update. Far too much compared to it’s importance in the grand scale of things.
Am I the only one obsessed with the OTA and immediately checking it every journey?
I haven't tried this but if you plug in and don't want to charge (say you charge when you get to 20% and you at 50%). Does the car precondition with the power from the mains automatically?
I am sure it must do but I do not use the scheduled preconditioning.
This video looks at the e-heat and does some testing with a laser thermometer. You can watch the video but my takeaway was that to get the hot air coming out he switched on the re-circulate button. This noticeably increased the temperature coming out the vent. Sometimes the heating is very weak...

I have had this since day one of having my car. When the turn indicator is under a mile the two screens do not match. So much so that I do not use the instrument cluster direction indicator as I do not trust it.
I have just tested it with my iPhone on aeroplane mode to make sure it is not a...
In the navigation screen there is a line saying hold down the icons to re-arrange the navigation search icons.
I hope they do this on the radio screen. Mine is a total mess. You can’t remove them (If anyone knows)?
This video at time 8.40 shows a regen/ power gauge on the instrument cluster. I haven't seen this shown anywhere else? Is this in OTA 1.7.1 or is this only a 2022 model thing to come later to other cars?
I have decided to make a list of the OTA powers. I will update as they are released and I can get the details.
OTA FordPower-Up 1.4.0

Pressing the volume button down on the steering wheel should stop / mute CarPlay. It doesn’t do anything. Think they missed this and it can be programmed. Pressing again should start the audio.
Not sure if it mutes the radio or other audio.
I went on holiday last week with lots of trips to the beach. The car is a mess with sand everywhere. I need to wash the car but I haven't gone because of so many posts complaining about the side logos coming off. Any advice on how to wash the car without them coming off?
All the settings are in on place. I don’t know why the navigation settings are in another (in navigation). I found it by mistake. At the least it should be accessible in both. I think that is not good UI.
The only ui complaint I have.
I have been trying to get rid of the pre-collision assistance distance indicator but I do not have the distance indication button in my settings to remove it. Is this a problem for anyone else, a problem related to my model (AWD SR) or my software (revision 263)?
I have picked up my car and had to use the navigation to get home. I missed a couple of turns because the small instruction was completely incorrect and didn’t match the route. This was for the whole journey. The large screen map was correct the whole time.
I took a photo at a traffic light to...
There is a new electric car company with a classic looking Mustang. Looks good but there are only 499 left. Drive that to the Mustang meetups that give Mach-e drivers evil eyes. Only £300,000 or about $420,000.
