  1. OTA Update #2 Installed. Notice Any Differences?

    1. is very debatable lol 2. I would class it as very lazy I don't expect a giant encyclopedia but a simple description of the issues fixed is far better than using a generic bug fixes term. For people that have no interest it is not a problem as reading what was changed is optional but having...
  2. OTA Update #2 Installed. Notice Any Differences?

    As not yet being in the owners club (GT), I tend to read over some threads quickly but is this seriously the only information ford still puts down in the what new section? I know ford are not classed as a software company but come on ford that is pathetic.
  3. GT, what happened to late summer?

    All we really know so far is that job#2 will start July 5th (subject to change) so who knows when the GT's will be built is there still a lot of non GT reservations that have yet to be fullfed? I would guess this first batch of GT probably won't be turning up at the dealer for collection until...
  4. Center display fades to "snow" occasionally

    That doesn't look good :(, hopefully it is a simple software fix, this is one of my issues with ford blindly following tesla and pushing the hvac controls to the screen. If you loose the nav map or audio selection it is a right old pain but when important car controls go down with it then it...
  5. Dealer Survey-Who is it about and what does Ford do with them?

    Generally with those dealership surveys unless you give people top marks then the dealership gets dinged from ford and they may follow up, this normally happens with servicing. If you thought the dealership business manager what crap they say so and don't lose any sleep over it as a lot of the...
  6. What Road Trip Charging Should Be

    I sometimes wonder if this is one of the reasons behind VW giving the id.4 3 free years of EA charging, get people out and about stressing the system while also insulating them of the true cost of charging when not at home especially those people in states that are charged by the minute vs kw...
  7. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    Good to know that is worked out fine with the FE so by association the Premium & RT.1 trims would also work well. With the ranges of the GT & GTPE being just estimates there is still time for improvements but I doubt it will change by much if at all. No doubt the the 235 vs 250 will be down to...
  8. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    Agreed, coming up with a standard that works well will be tricky and everyone will have a different method, but if everything is at least tested the same way consumers can compare. While not perfect p3-group charging index is a useful comparison, which unfortunately rates at the mach-e at the...
  9. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    I would say this a start but again it has issues as the 10% to 80% while useful for those people not clued up they may easily assume that going from 45% to 80% would take half the time, but that is not going to be case in all BEV. The planners of the world will enjoy all the pre planning a...
  10. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    I would say the rant applied to all EV's. Most of the marketing push on EVS has been charge at home ready to go when you wake up, once we got to 200 mile range EV's the commutes & local trip was pretty much covered and that marketing push should have ended it is really the road trip that needs...
  11. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    While I can easily see this happening :( to be blunt I think when then masses all end up in EV's unless things drastically improve in charge times or ranges, a lot of peoples first road trip in the EV is going to end up the same as the OP and its going to be the last one they take :( For road...
  12. What Road Trip Charging Should Be

    For the long term viability of BEVs on a road trip the only real solution will be increasing battery density to the point that having to charge on route will happen only on the longest of trips and can probably be timed with a longer stop for lunch / dinner. I know dirty oil burner dieselgate...
  13. Instument Panel screen dead

    Screen could have failed or just a software glitch that failed to turn it on :(, it will be covered under warranty but sucks that you will have to take it to the dealer to looks at. You could try adjusting the settings for the instrument screen, swap between dark / light themes etc and see if...
  14. Fast Charging at Electrify America: Lessons learned

    Either that or improve the charge curves to the point that recharge times are not really an issue so the BEV ends up feeling similar to driving an ICE with a small gas tank. For the pottering around town and your daily commute if you can charge at home the time to charge is somewhat irrelevant...
  15. Sandy Munro Mach-E Episode 6: Wrap Up

    Having the car just turn based on if you are sitting in the driving seat is convenient and all, but the big advantage of the start stop button which is really just and on / off button is it allows the car to be switched on so the entertainment system can be used and stay operative with people in...
  16. Sandy Munro Mach-E Episode 6: Wrap Up

    Of all the BEV interiors in this segment, I like the audi Q4 e-tron the most not just based on supposed premium build quality but as it is the closest to what I expect in a vehicle in regards to physical buttons, it is still not perfect with a switch to capacitive touch for some stuff but at...
  17. April 2021 Mach-E Sales Lead to Best Month Ever for Ford Electrified Vehicles

    That initial 50000 will have been down to the the limitations of battery production / orders. Who knows how many batteries ford ordered and where they will go as the packs should also be shared with the BEV transit. For a BEV's battery manufacture is going to be the main limitation on...
  18. April 2021 Mach-E Sales Lead to Best Month Ever for Ford Electrified Vehicles

    You need to account for European sales ;)
  19. GT ordering poll

    It would be nice to get some confirmation on this, as info posted and the configurator states manual passenger seat for GTPE after all base spec euro cars come with a led projector, not led reflector like USA spec cars so for all I know that is the passenger seat for euro GT's. Talking with my...
  20. GT ordering poll

    Only reason I originally pre ordered the GT was due to magneride as it should allow comfort and sport when needed, but the only way to get that now is to take the performance edition that then makes changes I am really not happy about such as the major downgrade to a manual passenger seat, we...
