    New Study: How Long Do EV Batteries Last?

    Really interesting... I'd like to see these graphed as state of health % because of the effect of temperature on the GOM number, but something is better than nothing. So many questions - I'd also like to know why early model S cars have big degradation for the big battery but not so much for...

    SSM 51689 - Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) Buzzing Noise - 2021 Mustang Mach-E (Non-GT)

    my car has been waiting for the IPC for a week and a half... how long in total did it take for the IPC to come in? I'm trying to decide if I pick up the car and try again later or just ride this out. Because the mileage is in the IPC, I see why they need to hold the car... but I don't...

    Post here if you have an active FDRS account and are willing to look up info for others

    ... yeah, there is a definition of terms problem here. For decades, dealers have not updated firmware unless there is a problem called out in a TSB. They have never just updated all the modules in the car that are behind on updates. Without the modules called out in a TSB, there is nothing to...

    Why below 39 degrees?

    They have to pick some temperature for ice warning. FWIW, BMW picks 37 degrees.

    If you have a Mach E and feel screwed by the price slash, call Ford, or don't. LOL

    In your original post you say... I had never owned a Ford until then. Not sure after this if I'll buy another one. I do understand prices tend to come down over time, especially on products with lots of tech, but this seems ridicules. You didn't seem to understand the mechanism driving the...

    NACS Adapter is on Ford Parts Website (no, it can't be ordered yet)

    What if another car company sells it for 20% less... then my adapter will depreciate 20% overnight... o_O arhhh

    Looking forward to Tesla Supercharger Adaptor but....

    The cables on charging stations are liquid cooled... an extension cable would not be. I suspect if the cables were large enough, it wouldn't need cooling but it would be really heavy and expensive.

    If you have a Mach E and feel screwed by the price slash, call Ford, or don't. LOL

    All EV used values have mirrored the price drops Tesla put in place... ~20% Yeah, used Teslas dropped 20% as well, same with Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes... you name it. The "good" news is that we are less likely to see further large price decreases as Tesla is approaching their cost of production...

    If you have a Mach E and feel screwed by the price slash, call Ford, or don't. LOL

    sorry - Tesla dropped prices ~20%. all EV makers have had to respond. Our resale values are not just influenced by what a new exact model costs, its impacted by what the alternatives cost too.

    Ford drops price of Mach-e by up to $8100

    it's hard to imagine the same discounts on the 24's till the 23's are sold. Longer term, my crystal ball says, that the EV price war will keep the MME, EV6, Ioniq 5/6, Model Y, ID4 etc in the mid to high 40's for the volume trims. The cars are too similar to be priced $15K apart. Stand by for...

    Ideal battery temperature for driving and charging

    ... ideal is complicated... don't worry too much about it, but to take a stab at answering the question here goes. For faster DCFC, the warmer the better up to around 40 degrees C. The cells can be warmer than that, (like 70C) but being real warm and at a high state of charge shortens their...

    2022 cyber orange stolen from my driveway (FOUND) [⚠️ ADMIN WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    First off I'm glad they found your car and I hope it is ok. I was not aware of the relay attack... I learned something. When you get your car back, it would helpful to know how they were able to steal it. Was it a relay attack or something else? If it was a relay attack, presumably the bad...

    Ford drops price of Mach-e by up to $8100

    I wonder if the US makers will permanently need the $7.5K to compete... electric gas or other (sort of a UAW offset) The rate that the Chinese have penetrated the Euro market is shocking.

    Ford drops price of Mach-e by up to $8100

    In terms of timing, you might be right... but BYD already has a bus plant in Mexico and the Chinese car makers move at a speed that is hard to imagine in Europe and the US...

    Ford drops price of Mach-e by up to $8100

    good news / bad news The resale value of our cars has been hit by Tesla price cuts regardless of whether Ford follows suite... and now they have. I suspect Tesla (and by extension Ford) are near the bottom of where current generation cars can be priced... maybe a few $K lower but my crystal...
