  1. “Free” chargers at hotels and car dealerships

    I have used L2 at motels. It is nice to have the car fully charge when starting out the next day.
  2. Model Y Quality Issues Aplenty

    I wondered about this one to. I think the Tesla paint issues are because of their paint formula, not the facility. The paint shop was fitted about 2012 and has the latest equipment.
  3. Ford restarts all its operations south of the border, FCA adds shifts

    I agree that some of the old names would be fun to have back. Not to sure about Mercury as Ford seems to be making Mustang a brand instead. They have their own passions. It's not about the customer really.
  4. Mach-E Will Use the Cloud, Crowd-Sourcing For More Accurate Range Predictions

    Tesla Model 3 does not have a driver side display because they wanted to reduce cost. The Model S has a driver side display. I prefer a driver side display and that is one of things that I don't like about the car. Looks like the Tesla Cybertruck will omit the display also.
  5. Mach-E Will Use the Cloud, Crowd-Sourcing For More Accurate Range Predictions

    So your stereotype of a Ford driver is someone who resists change and avoids new technology making it necessary to make things that are different seem familiar. Also, you believe that Tesla drivers embrace change and new technology. Which image would you prefer your car to cast. Actually, I...
  6. Mach-E Will Use the Cloud, Crowd-Sourcing For More Accurate Range Predictions

    Yes, but it doesn't change gears. There is no low range. It implies that it has something that it doesn't have. Some people will believe that it will accelerate better if it's in L, but it won't. The B label would be better or maybe G for gen.
  7. Regenerative braking

    Also refered to as the E peddle..
  8. Mach-E Will Use the Cloud, Crowd-Sourcing For More Accurate Range Predictions

    My Volt has L on the shifter for more aggressive regenerative braking. The problem is this implies a lower gear, as it is on all cars with automatic transmission, but that's not what it really is. Shouldn't the label for the selection describe what it does?
  9. Ford restarts all its operations south of the border, FCA adds shifts

    I know this is quibbling, but shouldn't that flag in the banner be the Mexican flag because the discussion is about a Mexican factory reopening?
  10. All-Electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, Ford’s First Factory Fully Electric Dragster Prototype

    This car resembles pro gas class of cars. They typically run 8 sec quarter with the record somewhere in the 6 sec range. An EV can be built to perform at whatever time/speed you want. It's really just about how much you want to spend. Just like with the transportation market, EV will become...
  11. All-Electric Mustang Cobra Jet 1400, Ford’s First Factory Fully Electric Dragster Prototype

    I watched the video and it definitely shifted gears. Must be a two speed transmission. Tesla tried this early on with their roadster and had to much reliability issues. Probably due to no torque converter to take the initial torque slam when planetary band closes. This might be a more...
  12. Here’s what Ford’s electric SUV based on VW’s MEB platform might look like

    https://electrek.co/2020/04/20/ford-electric-suv-based-on-vw-meb-platform/ Article speculates on a lower priced EV crossover for Europe.
  13. Wait for Mach-E or not?

    The reason to want an EV is the driving experience. It's so much better. The V8 was sold for being smooth and torquey. Electric has improved that beyond the capability of an ICE. As to production delay. I think there will be that problem across the board.
  14. Breaking: 2021 Mach-E Specs Increased Across The Board (HP, LB-FT, KW)!

    I think this is more of an improvement in the accuracy of available information than actual changes that improve performance.
  15. Production will probably be delayed.

    That success rate is only true as long as the medical community can respond. If there is no care available the mortality rate might be something like Italy, which is something like 10% overall.
  16. Tax Credits

    The early manufacturers that have accrued their credits are at a disadvantage now. Tesla is doing OK anyway, but GM is holding back I think, but hey are still selling the Bolt so far.
  17. Mach E GT vs Model Y Performance

    I have confirmed you are correct. So another $500 less incentive. I thought California had ambitions about EV adoption. Apparently this has become $500 less of a priority.
  18. Mach E GT vs Model Y Performance

    That's a better deal than I can get. The California state credit is $2.5K and sales tax still applies.
  19. Corona Virus Posts ONLY

    A SARS-COV2 myth is that young people will not become seriously ill with this virus. This is not true and there are many young people who require intensive care. It is true younger people have a lower mortality rate but COVID-19 can result in permanent lung damage. The entire state of...
