    210-230 EV mile range, sufficient for only vehicle in Phoenix?

    Yes, but with an ICE the efficient and scenic route is 160 miles rather than over 300.

    The truth about Electrify America's progress and Traveling with the Mach E

    I was simply responding to your statement about folks being ok with settling. I'm settling by buying a Mach-E while there is still an insufficient charge network for road trips. Whether I buy a SR or ER battery makes little difference FOR ME, given the current charge network, on my likelihood...

    The truth about Electrify America's progress and Traveling with the Mach E

    I've waited for "what I want" for too many years. Most choices involve some give and take. I'm willing to go electric now, at the expense of needing to rent a car for certain trips. There are some choices I won't make, because the cost of "settling" is far too high (to me). Here's a recent...

    'Audio wizardry' with optional engine noise / sound in Mach-E cabin

    Really happy to have all these options!

    The truth about Electrify America's progress and Traveling with the Mach E

    Well said. I'm happy that we have options, and that the number of choices in the market seems to be going up, not down. I have mixed feelings about the glass roof. If it were a big deal to me, though, I'd opt for a Select or GT or some other brand of car altogether. Especially in 2020, I'm...

    'Audio wizardry' with optional engine noise / sound in Mach-E cabin

    Yeah of course. It's the third word in the first bulleted key point, and all over that article. Also, not sure it will sound like a V8? I'm curious to see what they came up with, as well as how it differs for the three drive modes, and how it will differ in the GT.

    210-230 EV mile range, sufficient for only vehicle in Phoenix?

    All good points... But the one I'm quoting seems like the biggest. If I were faced with this sort of difference to visit family (+1 hour each way, 3x number of stops), then I would certainly choose the ER as well.

    The truth about Electrify America's progress and Traveling with the Mach E

    Yeah we'll need more that support trailers. Although you haven't seen any, they do exist. This guy reviews charging sites:

    'Audio wizardry' with optional engine noise / sound in Mach-E cabin

    Sound is an important part of the driving experience, just as soundtracks and sound effects bring movies to life. Here's an interesting excerpt from Sam Abuelsamid's article about the Mustang GT350: The future may well be electric, but the lack of a mechanical soundtrack from an electric...

    https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2020/08/09/ford-mustang-mach-e-audio-wizardry-with-optional-engine-noise.html KEY POINTS There's an option on the upcoming Ford Mustang Mach-E for the all-electric vehicle to broadcast engine noises into the cabin. The engine noises sound like they're coming from the...

    Great article from the society of automotive engineers

    Great find. The article does a nice job of accumulating all the latest known information into one place, and it's well written. I was particularly struck by the number of Ford "firsts" with this vehicle.

    Exploring the Ford Mustang Mach-E Great video

    Not sure how accurate the models from the video are to actual production plans, but here we can see two differences between the NA-spec GT and GT Performance -- the wheels (obviously) and the seats. The front grill facades (in these models) are identical.

    Exploring the Ford Mustang Mach-E Great video

    The video seems to show relatively recently produced footage. It's got the updated "bonnet" with the storage organizer. Also, the GT seats appear to be a combination of ActiveX and cloth. Cool stuff. GT seats: GT Performance seats:

    ABRP Showing 150kw EA chargers as 50kw

    Today was the first time I tried it in 6+ months. Looks great. Huge improvements to usability, too. But still a ways to go.

    Mach-E 1400 Prototype Revealed with 1400 Peak Horsepower

    I discovered there are Ford folks posting Mach-E videos to Instagram without tags, making it hard for me to find them. Check this particular one out... Flip over to the fifth video where the 1400 is sitting under a tent.

    210-230 EV mile range, sufficient for only vehicle in Phoenix?

    Thanks, Adam. I've seen those videos before, but forgot about them. Worth rewatching. I appreciate the reminder about the carbon footprint. This is one thing that gave me pause when I realized how much larger the Mach-E batteries are compared to the one in a Hyundai Ioniq. I also found helpful...
