  1. Some of us just got screwed by New Jersey - but Ford is stepping up!

    Interesting…that would be nice if you could apply on you own before dealer is equipped and trained up. In speaking with dealer it seems many are not going to be ready even if it starts in July / August besides Tesla and maybe some large dealers. There was also talk in that straw meeting of...
  2. X-plan changes announced for Mustang Club of America (MCA) members

    I have a few questions pertaining to the Mustang Club of America and X plan pricing. 1. Is the 90 days from when you pay or order? 90 days from when you become a MCA member 2. How do yiu know if your dealership will accept X Plan pricing? Have to ask dealer. If early enough can move vehicle...
  3. The truth about Electrify America's progress and Traveling with the Mach E

    I think Tesla will ultimately open its network via some Tesla to CCS adapter that it sells for like $1000. The adapter could connect via Bluetooth on an app on the phone maybe and enable charging / allow billing. We may actually see a CCS to Tesla adapter first to allow Tesla to use EA and other...
  4. Main Battery Removal Guide

    That's what I was thinking when I saw the PDFs. I think you could have a cottage industry develop over time once these vehicles hit 100k in a few years especially if this technology overlaps with other vehicles. We know battery technology follows something like Moore's law; over time it will be...
  5. My Mach-E is on the Way

    I was thinking that but wouldn't they include that in the delivery time. The rails and their facilities would work on weekends. Maybe the last leg would occur on a weekday. As you know NJ has some complexity with the incentives/rebates...We will see. Hoping it is not business days...Did other...
  6. Main Battery Removal Guide

    The 12v battery removal posts will be clutch to someone down the road. It is very detailed. Hopefully, without a starter and its high energy demands, the AGM battery will last a long time. Does the 12v battery also heat the Lithium battery if it is extremely cold and won't start or would you get...
  7. My Mach-E is on the Way

    The 36 days from 5/27 doesn't add up to 7/18. Do you think it will arrive early? I would like to close the deal prior to July 6 incentive expirations. Order Confirmed 11/25/2020 | In Production 5/24/2021 | Built 5/27/2021 | Shipped Est. 36 days | Delivery Est.7/18/2021 |
  8. Main Battery Removal Guide

    This was more for the EV battery under the car but I didn't see the link buried in the other posts. I was just reading it. Just hope the 12v doesn't need to be changed. Once you take those grommets out, it is never the same. Everything jiggles at little... 12v is unfortunately a regulatory...
  9. Main Battery Removal Guide

    I saw this online at the Ford Fleet Website. Not recommended you try but interesting to see the steps. Makes me think people/companies will figure out how to do replacements if needed in a few years if there is an out of warranty market.
  10. Some of us just got screwed by New Jersey - but Ford is stepping up!

    Did those buyers know that some rebate would be retroactively given? I don't know the full details and thought process of the buyers back then but it was announced in Jan 2020. Maybe it edged people over to take a risk and buy an EV knowing they might get something back later that year. Did...
  11. Some of us just got screwed by New Jersey - but Ford is stepping up!

    I found the dealers' association comments a little confusing and counterproductive They would like to encourage and persuade new buyers, so they are against those who pre-ordered, reserved, etc receiving the benefit. I think overall the program should be more clear and consistent. These...
  12. Changes to the tax credit is in the works

    I think this proposal doesn't drastically change things except getting rid of manufacturers' caps which will help GM and Tesla. I don't think there are many union-made vehicles now and that may not pass since automakers' lobby will push back. They probably don't want this tied to union labor...
  13. Charging your Mach E in Manhattan

    This Revel superhub program is also interesting...may not be ready by when you need it though https://gorevel.com/superhubs/superhub JFK Airport - West Cell Phone Lot has evolveNY fast chargers too.
  14. Charging your Mach E in Manhattan

    Added the links to the info. You can always take Queensboro Bridge to the Queens Electrify America fast chargers for free if the toll is a dealbreaker.
  15. Charging your Mach E in Manhattan

    From FAQ: Do I have to pay a toll to come to Randall’s Island? Yes, the RFK Triborough Bridge toll is currently $8.50. (Less with NY EZPass) Note: There is only a toll upon entering Randall’s Island. There is no toll when exiting the Island...
  16. Charging your Mach E in Manhattan

    Based on map, only level 2 it seems in garages. Some dealers like BMW also have chargers which may be faster at 25kw. Luckily the island isn’t that big so you prob don’t need a lot of charge and most driving is low speed or in traffic which is where EVs shine. Con Ed is working on street...
  17. “Scheduled for Production” now a date in the past...

    5/16/2021 production date now reading 1/17/2021 which is the known website error. I called 1-800-334-4375. Wait for the operator. Got a more detailed update. Told me through the body shop, trim line, etc. Not through production completely (maybe waiting for a part I'm told) and not shipped but...
  18. Who else is mad about gas?

    The only consolation is gasoline is also difficult to access when power is out because pumps at stations, storage and distribution facilities, pipelines, refineries, etc are not working. Those living in the NY/NJ area will remember the gas lines and problems after Hurricane Sandy. If electricity...
  19. Some of us just got screwed by New Jersey - but Ford is stepping up!

    It seems like it will be approved since there is a budget surplus but there may be a lag between when it is approved and when dealers sign up and are able to process claims. It requires them to get trained and work with the Center for Sustainable Energy per the website. With just a few EV cars...
  20. Some of us just got screwed by New Jersey - but Ford is stepping up!

    What is the process to switch if there is a dealer I guess willing to accommodate you? How late can you switch?
