    Mach E First Edition range

    The car has three trip meters...the current trip, then trip 1 and trip 2 are just like trip meters in other cars. Unless you reset those manually, they’ll show your long term energy consumption stats.

    Mach E First Edition range

    Agreed....don’t look at the range number, look at your miles per kW hour and multiply by 88.8 (ER battery)

    “Electrical system drain” message in FordPass app

    Yeah, that’s how I’m interpreting it too. It started out with a couple minor warnings in the app but with the problem not going away has decided it wasn’t a random fluke and there really is a problem. I scheduled an appointment for late next week to get this looked at.

    “Electrical system drain” message in FordPass app

    Maybe...but the message in the dash said that service is required so I think there’s something more going on.

    “Electrical system drain” message in FordPass app

    I just picked it up last Saturday and they said at the time they did install the latest updates...have there been new ones since then? Regardless, I’ll plan to take it in next week sometime.

    “Electrical system drain” message in FordPass app

    Update - so far, I’ve received two “electrical system drain” notifications via the FordPass app, and this morning, a similar message when powering on the car: ”Electrical system drain. Service required” This morning’s message had no corresponding FordPass notification associated with it, and...

    MME as ski car - estimates for range loss due to cold yet?

    I completed a test of this...unfortunately not actual skiing due to work, but letting it sit unplugged overnight in cold weather. The short answer is it did great and should have no issues being a ski car. The long answer: Here’s the temperature profile for this test. About 10 hours...

    14-30 charging options

    Your best bet is probably to just buy a new corded mobile connector that already has that plug on it. If you search Amazon for “ev charger 14-30” you’ll find some. Not as expensive as the hardwired chargers you see discussed more often.

    Rural Colorado Road Trip in Mach-E 4X performance results (Woodland Park to Ridgway)

    I don’t recall seeing that option....but there are so many selectable settings in that interface that i wouldn’t be surprised.

    Rural Colorado Road Trip in Mach-E 4X performance results (Woodland Park to Ridgway)

    Thanks! A friend and I designed it, really targeting more the Tesla crowd currently but as you can tell I’m biased towards Ford so am determined to design an elegant J1772 implementation (working on that now!). ChaseStation.com

    Rural Colorado Road Trip in Mach-E 4X performance results (Woodland Park to Ridgway)

    Yes, it’s the premium cable. 21.4mm diameter and nicely flexible even with temps in the teens. If you wanted to swap out for one, it’d be a pretty simple DIY job, that cable is terminated in lugs attached to a terminal strip with screws. For comparison, the Tesla cable is 14.5mm, and 17.4mm...

    Rural Colorado Road Trip in Mach-E 4X performance results (Woodland Park to Ridgway)

    Whoops, I missed that original post! Thanks...yes, you’re correct. Shown here is a NEMA 14-50 option (for the Grizzl-E to plug into) that we‘re actually not selling yet due to some design issues I’m still working out. I’m also working on a way to install a Chargepoint flex on that post, I’ve...

    Mach-E Delivery / Dealer Satisfaction reports

    Premium, Infinite Blue, AWD, ER Phil Long Ford Motor City, Colorado Springs I‘d rate this experience a 10. They took my LVB concerns seriously and spent time looking into that prior to delivery. Car was ready when promised. Paperwork etc was probably as smooth as it could be.

    Rural Colorado Road Trip in Mach-E 4X performance results (Woodland Park to Ridgway)

    My wife and I frequently drive between Woodland Park and Ridgway in Colorado, a ~240 mile trip normally (that we stretched into 255 miles exploring charging options today). Here's the elevation profile: So as you can imagine, we were nervous about what our range would be like in an EV with...

    Range Display

    We did a 255 mile trip in ours yesterday and were spending lots of time watching that number as well as our average efficiency. The car has a “low battery warning”, a notification that is user configurable. The default value is 50 miles, though I had bumped mine down to 30 miles (the other...

    For new owners: is it worth it?

    I took delivery of mine a few days ago, our first EV. I’ve always been curious about what makes EVs so darn appealing to their owners...it seems those owners become enamored with their EV and don’t want to ever go back to an ICE vehicle. I get it now. I don’t know how to describe it, but I get...

    “Electrical system drain” message in FordPass app

    Today while charging on an L2 charger, I turned on the car to ACC mode and received an error message that there was a 12V charging system fault. Couldn't replicate it later on other chargers we were testing.

    “Electrical system drain” message in FordPass app

    The opposite, it was far away....maybe 75’ or so with several walls between it and the two phones it was connecting to. So maintaining that connection would require higher power levels (if BT allows variable output power?)...possible that could be related I suppose. It’s pretty far for the BT...
