    GM Adopts Tesla NACS like Ford!

    Here in CA Tesla has/had been charging ~$0.42/Kw and even if they charge $0.50 (20% more) the gasoline equivalent here in CA ($5/gal) will still be far more expensive.

    Thanks for the report. What does chargehub do that the others don't?

    Well, I Didn't Think This Would Ever Happen...

    Of all the numerous comments from ICE Mustang owners I'd say it's ~90% positive and 10% sour grapes.

    What brand of detailing products do you use on your Mach E and why?

    I've been using Griot Garage's products for a couple years now. They perform well and I like their US based (Tacoma WA) and environmentally friendly products. They also have great DIY videos.

    How long did it take owning a MME to get your first speeding ticket?

    I learned a long time ago that safely pushing speeds on twisty roads is a lot more fun than just going fast on a straight road. And when riding my GS in a group club ride, I would always let the faster riders go first so that they would get the tickets rather than myself :cool:

    New Bridgestone Turanza EV tires (with "Enliten" tech) for Teslas, Mach-E promises better durability

    We've got the Turanza tires on our BMW i4 edrive40 (OEM) and it's a really quiet ride. I don't recall the exact size but they are on 18" wheels and I've gotten 300 mi of range on a 500 mil round trip to SoCal in Feb (freeway speeds (70-72 on cruise control).

    Aye matey, there's the rub, especially w/dealers ready to add ADM to the MSRP, at least for quite a while.

    Smart Solar Charging

    We have both an i4 40eDrive and a 2022 MME Premium. The i4 is a great car and EV. You might consider though whether you really need the extra power of the M50 or the AWD. the 40eDrive is 5.5" 0-60 according to BMW but people on the i4 forum have bested that by about a half second. The 40 has a...

    Your next EV

    I had a deposit for an Aptera but its future is uncertain so I cancelled my reservation. Very cool tech and huge range though if they succeed. We also got a 2023 BMW i4 40eDrive on 3/31 and it's a fabulous car. It's got BMW's handling and 300mi of real range (in ideal conditions) I've...

    Ford Quadruples BlueCruise Price to $800/yr for All Renewals

    They may be testing the waters to see just how much people are willing to pay by paying attention to forum posts like this one. For me personally, adaptive cruise control and lane keeping are sufficient. Hands off is nice but not at any subscription price. YMMV of course.

    Would you pay $75/month or $800/year for BlueCruise hands free highway driving? This will be option for 2023 Mach-E

    For me personally the lane centering coupled with the distance control is sufficient.

    Car is completely dead

    Not with respect to this issue but Ford occasionally sends me an email about a Ford GT I had put a reservation on then subsequently cancelled ~18 months ago.
