    Mach-E Will Charge 30% Faster Than Earlier Estimates Announces Ford

    I am worried that the conclusion from timbop and I could just be wishful thinking. Thank you for pointing it out. We'll wait and see. 3 minutes at 150kW is just terrible. I'll be doubting Ford's engineering if that turns out to be true.

    Mach-E Will Charge 30% Faster Than Earlier Estimates Announces Ford

    I agree that assuming the footnote is wrong is the only way that the press release could make sense. An alternative to your conclusion of 10%-80% in 32 minutes (30% improvement in charge time) is 30% improvement in range. It may also be a combination of the two. The news release shows a...

    Mach-E Will Charge 30% Faster Than Earlier Estimates Announces Ford

    Exactly, if 61 miles refers to just the first 10 minutes (from 10% SOC), it seems quite a bit too low. Maybe it's still the average, and we're looking at a 30% range increase? (That would explain the 85% AWD/RWD ratio. And maybe foot note 1 can be explained by miscommunication between the...

    Mach-E Will Charge 30% Faster Than Earlier Estimates Announces Ford

    You're likely right. The original 47 miles per 10 minutes number was clearly an average because that adds up to 211 miles in 45 minutes, which is exactly 70% of battery capacity in 45 minutes. Many people, including me, find it misleading/confusing to use the 10-80% average number in a...

    Mach-E Will Charge 30% Faster Than Earlier Estimates Announces Ford

    52 miles / 10 minutes (AWD ER) is only 85% of 61 miles / 10 minutes (RWD ER). The original EPA range estimate is 270 miles (AWD ER) and 300 miles (RWD ER), which is 90%. That does not add up unless the range estimate has changed (likely) or somehow AWD charges slower despite having the same...

    Electrify America to switch to a pay by kWh charging model

    In San Francisco bay area, with time-of-day pricing, the price is $0.166/kWh off-peak. https://www.pge.com/en_US/residential/rate-plans/rate-plan-options/electric-vehicle-base-plan/electric-vehicle-base-plan.page On the other hand, gas is also more expensive. Right now, it's around $2.999/gallon.

    Electrify America to switch to a pay by kWh charging model

    The real estate and equipment for chargers cost a lot. In the short- to near-term, charger will likely continue to be a limited resource. As a result, I don't understand why everyone is so excited about per-kWh pricing. It is reasonable to expect that A Nissan charing at 50kW should pay more...

    Question about the interior camera from a privacy standpoint

    Exactly, camera is easy to disable. Microphone, if any, will be much harder.

    Question about the interior camera from a privacy standpoint

    That's not true. According to Elon Musk's twitter post: It’s there for when we start competing with Uber/Lyft & people allow their car to earn money for them as part of the Tesla shared autonomy fleet. In case someone messes up your car, you can check the video. On the other hand, in this news...

    Polestar 2 US price announced

    My Mach E reservation is Premum AWD with space white exterior and light colored interior at $58300. It appears that Polestar will cost $59900+1200+4000=65100. Additionally, for my personal taste, the overall height of Polestar 2 (58 in, 1.48m) is too low. In comparison, Mach E is 63 in and my...

    Real World range testing reveals differences between stated/print "EPA ranges" for most vehicles.

    Many people here aren't buying an EV to save money. For one thing, many people prefer the driving experience of an EV (coming from Hybrid, Plug in, a shorter range EV, or just another EV). If EV turns out to be cheaper long term, it's a nice extra.

    Real World range testing reveals differences between stated/print "EPA ranges" for most vehicles.

    The article you mentioned explained the weather part: * The cars are stored overnight in an air-conditioned chamber at 18deg C while plugged in * The driving part of the test is only conducted when the ambient air temperature is between 10 and 15deg C.

    UK Pricing Lowered For RWD Extended Range Mach-E, Qualifying Some Configurations For Tax Credit

    I'm not in UK and am ignorant of the rules. However, the difference between base and option is somewhat blurry. If the rules is indeed what you described, it either has loop holes, or is very specific in terms of what is considered options. Put another way, why is color and FSD (in model 3)...

    Any Mach-E questions you want answered?

    > How high above the ground is the surface of the driver's seat in its lowest and highest positions? Can you also measure "how high above the floor inside the cabin" in addition to "above the ground" please?

    Mach-E Software Designer Explains How They Studied Tesla Software

    I'm on the other end of the opinion. We can agree to disagree. However, I want to make it clear that there are different opinions. I really liked it when, during the Mach E live unveil, Ford showed a picture of people attaching one or more phones to their cars and totally ignored the built-in...

    Geek Out on the Engineering Behind the Mach-E

    The front motor adds weight. I'm no expert, but I suspect that's where the majority of range loss come from. Therefore, I doubt that the ability to turn off front motor would be of any help.
