  1. Another Mach-E Crash Report and Repair Cost Estimate

    Wow. And I presume she went on to hit a Chevy Bolt ten minutes after your accident, and then Nissan Leaf another ten minutes after that? And she's still out there terrorizing random EV drivers every ten minutes? Seriously though, I hope she's off the streets for a good long time. And if she...
  2. Ford site just updated, Premium now 6+ months order time ?

    Don't forget about the Escape SE Plug-in which just recently hit the market and is now actively consuming Ford EV credit allocations just like the Mach E is. It might very well be selling at a rate similar to the Mach E, although I don't think data is available. There is also the Corsair...
  3. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Thank you so much for pointing that out. Of course that makes perfect sense in retrospect. That gets the number from the generic loan calculator within a few cents of Ford's. :)
  4. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    I was hoping that was the case. So you've got it matching Ford's numbers down to the penny? When I get time I'll have to pick that apart. Like I said earlier, I really appreciate your effort on that, and I definitely plan to use it as a valuable tool. It does beg the question though, if the...
  5. What do the 4 and x represent on the fender badge?

    I notice that these badges are on the GT - or at least they are on renderings and on the preproduction ones seen in official pictures. I am not one to de-badge a car but this is obviously redundant on a GT since they are all "4X". If the production models have them (which i expect will be the...
  6. GT, what happened to late summer?

    Having reserved my Mach E GT back on November 17th, 2019, I am nevertheless expecting to see the car no sooner than mid September. I suppose if it arrives before the 22nd, that technically satisfied the "late summer" estimate as someone noted above. If it comes sooner than that, hey, great...
  7. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Thanks for that very helpful reply. I had started replying early before yours came in, sorry about that. Like you, I really want to understand how this works, hence why all of the investigation. I think once I have the formula in front of my face, I'll get it. :)
  8. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Excellent thank you. This demonstrates my above point about total interest. Inputing these numbers: Car value: $69040 Interest rate: 1.4% Loan term: 4 years Balloon amount: $26615.20 Down payment: $0 That calculalor tells me my monthly payment should be $940.40. However, the calculator on...
  9. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Thanks, yeah that's the one I had found via a search, but I didn't have much time to investigate it, and it seems to require a lot of nuanced information. I was looking for something really quick and dirty. That's not a criticism at all, by the way. I am certainly appreciative of this...
  10. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    In a bank account (savings account), probably not. However, maybe it's regional variation, but when I build a Mach E (GT model in this case) on the Ford website, the Ford Options financing reports 1.4%. I think one could easily beat that using one of several investment account options. Even...
  11. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    I'm not sure I understand exactly what you mean, and admittedly I haven't read the fine print. But if you are saying that there is some inherent disadvantage to paying more per month than the contract stipulates, then the solution is simple: put the additional money you'd pay on the loan each...
  12. "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    The reason you "don't have to care about the odometer" with traditional financing is that, from a financial liability perspective, you are paying for the car as if you will drive it completely into the ground by the time the loan term has elapsed. But in real life, almost no one does that, and...
  13. GT ordering poll

    I've been thinking about the same. Since they are the same size (245/45R20), my current plan is to switch to the GT's OEM 20" Continental All Season tires (exact model not yet known - to me anyway) and use them year-round. However, I'm open to other possibilities. There are many choices in...
  14. A Z D and X plan pricing for loaded GT Performance Edition

    Thanks for posting the plan pricing OP. I am ordering the same configuration, plus Cyber Orange which adds another $600. Using this thread as a guide: https://www.macheforum.com/site/threads/a-z-x-plan-discount-pricing-for-mach-e.501/ It looks like your dealers administrative fee might be...
  15. Mach-E GT Performance Edition Specs and Looks Revealed. 0-60 in 3.5

    Yep, and they also have Performance Packages for the ICE Mustang GT (Level 2 was dropped for MY2021 however, to avoid crowding the Mach I): https://www.drivingline.com/articles/2019-ford-mustang-gt-performance-pack-1-real-world-friendly-real-world-fun/ The Performance Edition is the Mach E...
