    Model Y official dimensions and weight revealed

    Lower the better for me...I'll be getting the Performance Seat to lower myself a little more.

    Nice view of the Mach-E GT interior

    Glad to see that you're configuring a Cyber Orange car...note that the colored piping on the seats matches your external color. BTW blue is my least favorite color ( and my wife's favorite). I'm getting Cyber.

    2021 Mach-E Price List (Lowered Pricing for Premium and California Route 1 Models)!

    Do what I did...attach the plate with super velcro. But the holes are already there (weren't on my RS).

    Also, look at the trees...greenish-gray? The chroma level in these pix are way low (I'm a video editor/director of videography).

    I suspect that your camera is not white-balanced correctly...doesn't look much like the Ford photos.

    Ford GT Available to Order but Not The GT Performance?

    I sat next to Mark Kaufman (Team Edison, Head of EV Marketing) at an conference on Feb. 15th. He said: 1. Reserve the GT...the Performance Edition will be an option when you place your official order. 2. You'll be able to delete the glass sunroof at that time (saves weight). 3. Team Edison...

    This bothers me...

    Ford has specifically stated that the batteries are installed in "modules", for two reasons: 1. If a module fails, it can be replaced with a new module, without replacing the entire pack. 2. If improved battery tech arrives, all of the modules can be replaced. Done from the underside of the...

    Ford Updates on Mach-E Reservations, Order Bank, Cancellations, Test Drives, Deliveries

    I sat next to Mark Kaufman at a conference. He's head of marketing for Team Edison (one of the founding members), but he's not a "marketing guy" with disparagements attached. He's very much a straight-shooter... honest, intelligent and he understands what's needed in a performance car. He'll...

    A goodbye to all

    I drove an I-Pace and a Tesla Model 3 Performance back-to-back. Here are my impressions: 1. The I-Pace accelerates about the same as an RS (I-Pace 0-60 4.5 sec., my RS w/sticky tires 4.2 sec.). 2. The M3P feels noticably faster (0-60 3.5 sec.) than an RS or I-Pace. 3. Both electrics lean...

    Breaking: 2021 Mach-E Specs Increased Across The Board (HP, LB-FT, KW)!

    "Now showing an increase in horsepower, torque and kW output specs for all Mach-E trims and models!" Since the reservation holders most interested in those settings are the ones with GT reservations, why did you headline "ALL trims and models"...the most important models aren't there. I'm 70...

    Mach e vs. I-Pace

    I asked for the price on May 1st, expecting a discount. Didn't get it, so I'm done with Jaguar.

    What price did you get on the I-Pace?

    Mach e vs. I-Pace

    I, too was interested in an I-Pace, as I prefer the cab-forward design. Unfortunately, when I enquired as to buying one, I was offered a price of full M$RP, with no discount (Sacramento, CA region). I'm keeping my Mach-E reservation.

    Mach E GT vs Model Y Performance

    AWD gives faster starts due to the twin motors and more horsepower (and more traction). But more power uses up the charge can't have both. Eventually, higher-power-density solid state batteries will extend range, but we're not there yet.

    Breaking: 2021 Mach-E Specs Increased Across The Board (HP, LB-FT, KW)!

    Uh, there's no figures on the Mach-E GT or Mach-E GT Performance Edition. The target on the GT was 459...any idea when Ford will get more specific on these two models?

    How will you mod your Mach-E?

    Here's what I'd do...driving lights like the '68 Shelby...and paint it orange.

    So I joined the Mustang Club of America . . .

    I a car show, in Sacrament, I went up to the Mustang Club booth, and they were excited to discuss it. They WILL allow Mace-E entries into the club, and wanted to feature it at a meeting.
