Profit motive is definitely a contributing factor, I agree. But ultimately it comes down to consumer behavior and how to most easily separate buyers with their money. For the US, it is cheap stuff that is continually replaced with newer cheap stuff unfortunately.
JIT is an efficient way to run manufacturing and keep inventory and carry costs down.
It can feel right it “blame” Ford or others for this but in reality the root cause is American consumers especially buy on price. We will happily (generally) take an inferior product from China or wherever...
Norway is an amazing country to visit. Their adoption of EVs is incredible. I was a passenger in multiple Tesla Model X and S “taxis” during my time there.
Coincidentally that is also where I first realized the interiors of Tesla’s are pretty awful for $100,000 cars.
I used the Mach E VIN Tracker from this site and was able to find both the VIN and that the website is showing same build date response... no idea what it all means in web design but it matches what I want to hear so I am going with it!
Hey Maine gang. I'm on Gorham/Scarborough line and waiting for mine to arrive in late June or July by the looks of it.
Hitchhiker, doesn't that Model S look.... old(?)... next to your Mach E now? That Tesla design really has not aged well.
Time to start planning the Southern Maine...
You guys are giving me hope. Even if it is July it will give me some time to get ready with a second charge point.
EDIT: my wife has a PHEV Pacifica minivan that is pretty awesome so far. Only ~35 miles electric but she is averaging 2/3 of her miles as electronic only so far after 6 months.
I ordered in January and in February received an email from Ford confirm build week of May 24th.
I was always had trouble see this week in the Ford.com my account reservation page using my iPhone but could using Internet Explorer. But now I can’t see it at all.
Does this portend a...
My dealer finally got their tester in (eAWD Premium) so I swing by to test drive.
All I have to say is Ford nailed it. Many of the gang here have posted some seriously great reviews already and hard to top those. I’ll just leave a couple points I was pleasantly surprise over.
Excuse me, Sir.
French Canadians invented poutine and using alcohol during ice fishing to keep the human body from freezing.
Both are fine examples of the contribution of French Canadians to both human advancement and science.
Nothing against the tradespeople in general, but anyone in the trades right now is just throwing numbers out to see what sticks. Easier to land a few whales that overpay for a quick job than try to schedule out lower margin reasonable cost jobs.
I ended up paying $800 for mine because I didn’t...
As a proud owner of a 2015 Ford Explorer with a corroded aluminum hood and with paint flaked to bare metal, I... well never mind.:D
And don’t ask if Ford denied my warranty request at 38,000 miles for it. I’m not still bitter.
Seriously though, congrats on the new MME and thanks for your...
