  1. Poll as to how many people have owned a battery vehicle before...plug-in hybrids do not count

    Own my Model S for 7+ years. This is Tesla first model and is time to come out with a new model with better interior. Not much complaint against Tesla, very fun to drive. I like to own a compact e-crossover but don't like the Y. Crossovers to consider other than Mach E are Ariya and Q4 e-tron.
  2. Some Ford dealers are still uninformed on Mach-E charging; hampering EV adoption

    When I test drove the 2013 Model S in Washington DC, the sales/staff person was trained and knowledgeable and answered all the questions I asked. This is 7 years ago. I'm very disappointed with the lack of training with Ford dealership.
  3. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Another 2021 ESUV that caught my eye, Audi Q4 Sportback. Very nice interior design.
  4. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Yea, I don't mind to have a shorter/smaller SUV with an attractive interior design. 0-60 is comparable to Mach E though. Battery price performance is not as good as Tesla but no one is today.
  5. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Ken7, I compare this video from the concept phase vs the production version video reviewed by the Japanese reviewers (English translation) announced on 7/15. The concept Ariya is almost identical to the production version, both interior and exterior. The interior is quite meticulous. Whether...
  6. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    I never own any Nissan vehicle and cannot comment on the interior materials. However, I did search and watch several Ariya designer presentations and it looks like they did the this vehicle from ground up. The interior design is quite meticulous (with leather seats as well). Watch this video...

    Per 7/15 Nissan announcement, Ariya will have CCS charging port for the US version. https://cleantechnica.com/files/2020/07/Nissan-Ariya-U.S.-Spec-Sheet_.pdf
  8. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    I agree. If Nissan understands the US market, they will put CCS on Ariya, not Chademo. I think the future EV charging standard will be Tesla and CCS (sounds like iOS and Android) unless the wireless charging comes along.
  9. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    In addition, Nissan will announce the production version of slick Ariya on July 15th. Wow, lots of compact SUV to consider in 2021... https://www.caranddriver.com/nissan/ariya
  10. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    Yea, I hope Audi is not pricing the Sportback Q4 too high since Model Y drops 3K and I expect Tesla will drop the price again next year (Mach E too?) due to new battery announcement coming up. That's what technology companies do.
  11. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    I've been following the e-tron Q4 concept since they announced at Geneva. Evidently Audi will have 2 versions including this one. This Sportback is sleeker than the first concept with the equivalent interior. Some reporters said it starts at $45K on both. I suspect moderate to loaded options...
  12. What would make you cancel your Mach-E reservation and buy something else?

    I consider cancel Mach E reservation for this beauty, Audi e-tron Q4 Sportback, slick design with Audi quality... https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a33222611/audi-q4-sportback-e-tron-concept-revealed/
  13. Dealership installation of L3 (fast DC) and L2 chargers-

    I do think the DC fast charger at the dealership is a great sales tool particularly for ICE customers who considers buying EV and they don't know too much about EV charging. My charging experience at Nissan dealer for my Model S 7 years ago, waiting for 3 hours taught me a good lesson.
  14. Dealership installation of L3 (fast DC) and L2 chargers-

    Nissan has a slick SUV called Ariya coming out in 2021 and costs less than Mach E. This will be my alternative. I wish they can switch to industry standard CCS charge port instead of Chademo but I heard they may have 100KW charge port. They are keeping the spec. so secret, keep our fingers...
  15. Dealership installation of L3 (fast DC) and L2 chargers-

    If Ford is really serious about EV, they should install the fast DC chargers in their dealership locations (125KW and above). I remember one time I traveled to NY from NC 7 years ago with my Model S, the Superchargers were not around, I have to stop by one Nissan dealer to charge. Waiting...
  16. FORD MUSTANG MACH E INSIDER INFO, RUMORS, AND RELEASE DATE

    I like to lease Mach E and wait for the next gen. battery. Wow, this costs a lot to lease Mach E even with the rough estimate. At CES Fisker Ocean announcement, they said the base model costs $37499 before Federal Tax Credit. Lease with no long term contract (3 or more years) costs $379...
  17. 2022 Fisker Ocean anyone?

    Typo, 2024-2025 of course. I do agree a point on no garage to charge overnight. If you take a look at the solid state battery research in the lab, one can charge 80% in 5-10 minutes, of course, to get to mass production is another story. This is equal to the time it takes to fill up the gas...
  18. 2022 Fisker Ocean anyone?

    I just sent in my reservation for the Ocean. I own Tesla Model S for 7 years and has been following the battery technology since then. The technology is now going through the transition with better chemistry, battery w/o cobalt, solid state and others. They are denser, cheaper with faster...
  19. 2022 Fisker Ocean anyone?

    No purchase, no 3 year or more term lease. Lower price than the competition on base model. 30K mileage per year leasing. I am very interested. This is particularly true with the battery technology (chemistry) keeps improving in the next few years. I can lease the Ocean for a few years as my...
