    What does ‘Hands Free Driving’ even mean?

    Of course, 99% of folks on this forum this is old news, but it's nice to see Ford sponsoring content and getting the message out to a lot of folks, this time through Zack at JerryRigEverything

    Yes, it is a Mustang and does Mustang things

    At least according to this Colorado cop, it's a Mustang (timestamp = 0:42). On a side note, I'm not sure why the driver didn't try the, "Sorry sir, I'm still on BC 1.0. Had Ford updated me with BC 1.3/1.4 like they said, it would have automatically driven my drunk butt a little better" (I...

    Electric Chevrolet S10

    A little change from the norm, but checkout the beginning of restoration of this electric Chevy S10 pickup. I didn't even know these were ever made. It's awesome seeing technology such as wireless charging over a decade prior to the EV boom of today, and over two decades before the electric...

    The New Tesla / NACS Charging Connector Explained

    I think this video unintentionally explained why the announcement from Ford and others seemed to hint that we would have access to only a limited number of Tesla supercharger stations, and not all Tesla superchargers. TL;DR The current Telsa adapter essentially uses the J1772 + Chademo...

    Ford Mach-E - Mustang or Mediocre? | In Depth (Now You Know)

    Well, it was bound to happen. Zac and Jessie borrowed a friend's Mach E (Andrew) for a day to "review" it. Andrew is a Tesla owner, and loves his Mach E. So what do Zac and Jessie have to say? Come on, you already know the answer. They do give some valid criticisms, but it's hard to sift...

    Ford Mustang Mach-E FIRST ROAD TRIP. The good, the bad, and the ugly truth..

    I almost hesitate to post this at the risk of fanning the flames of extremism. That said, I know Ford watches this forum, so my hope is they view this and it spurs them to take action. Although I personally don't plan to DCFC often (couple times a year, maybe?), when I do, I want it to work...

    This is real, physical IONIQ 5 not a CGI – 2022 Hyundai IONIQ 5 reviewed!

    Sure looks like a futuristic, possibly polarizing design. Nice to see such a good walk-around, but too bad he couldn't get inside!
