    WASHINGTON, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co (F.N) said on Thursday the U.S. Treasury Department should limit the definition of a "foreign entity of concern" to ensure more electric vehicles can qualify for up to $7,500 in consumer tax credits. In August, Congress passed the $430 billion...

    Tom Moloughney just dropped his review of the Emporia EVSE on his State of Charge channel. I know a lot of members here have been recommending it. Other than the holster, it seems pretty decent.

    TL;DR - I worked with FITCAMX to test dash cam designs for the MME. It's now available to purchase (links at the bottom of this post) I never really thought dash cams were necessary, but then last year, somebody pulled out in front of my son (while he was driving my wife's RAV4 Prime). He...

    Chevy Equinox EV

    Chevy released more details on the Equinox EV. It will be interesting to see if they can really keep the starting price at $30k next year. All in all, it doesn't look like a bad effort. I can't really tell how much smaller it is than the Blazer EV.

    My 2021 Job 1 Mach-E has a functional Frunk button!

    Before I start, if you have a Job 2 or 2022 MME, you don't need to chime in and tell us that you've had a functional frunk button since Day 1. We know, but Job 1 cars haven't. Ford released new updates for the BCM (Body Control Module) and GFM (Generic Function Module) last night in FDRS that...

    Munro Live - Ford Interview | CEO Jim Farley, Chief Engineer Linda Zhang, and Chief EV Officer Doug Field

    Munro Live just posted a new interview with Jim Farley and some other Ford execs about the F-150 Lightning. I haven't finished it yet, so I'm not sure if the Mach-E is mentioned.

    A Ford dealer doubled the price for an F-150 Lightning

    I guess the ADM situation with the Mach-E could be worse. At least I haven't seen any dealers try to charge double like this one is for a Lightning.

    BlueCruise now available through FDRS for Job 1 cars (maybe just for Early Access?)

    The final updates required for BlueCruise became available for me today in FDRS. After applying the GWM and APIM updates, I immediately got a message in FordPass saying that my BlueCruise subscription is now active. The hands-free menu item now appears under Cruise Control and the Hands-free...

    Maybe some of these Sync features in the F-150 Lightning will come to the MME

    @OutofSpecKyle went through the Sync menus in an F-150 Lightning. Some of the stuff relates to towing, so wouldn’t apply to the Mach-E. But a few things stood out to me as things that might make their way to the MME, such as a bigger 360 camera display, a one-time charge limit setting, and the...
