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

    I think the Jetsons sound should be the international standard for the pedestrian alert system. :)
  2. Production runs & line output guesstimates

    Interesting. I had Interesting. I had no idea any of that was happening. I just assumed we all were using the same reservation system online.
  3. Production runs & line output guesstimates

    I guess I am a bit confused..... Why make an exception for people that want to lease? And why just that one country?
  4. Production runs & line output guesstimates

    What are Dutch Leases?
  5. Production runs & line output guesstimates

    If I were to venture a guess....scenario #2 would seem most reasonable and equitable but might take more effort to manage than Ford wishes to spend. Scenario #3 would take the least amount of time to manage but could be a curse once the EU and GT order window opens. So, I go back to #2 as a...
  6. Ford Kuga Battery Fires.

    Is the Kuga battery pack is liquid cooled like the Escape PHEV?
  7. Interior glamour shots

    Same here. We tinted the windshields on our '13 C-Max and our '17 FFE. Also added a dark strip across the top as a header piece. That REALLY helps out here in AZ.....
  8. EPA range and efficiency of MME

    Scavenging heat from the battery and drive train components is not unique to Tesla. The FFE does that so I fully expect the MME to have a similar system.
  9. Scheduled Maintenance

    The various modules on the vehicle monitor and control much more than emissions. There are still plenty of other systems that need a method for fault diagnostics and the OBD port provides that feature
  10. 'Audio wizardry' with optional engine noise / sound in Mach-E cabin

    Should be cool to hear when we get our cars. Starting to think that day will never come but must remain calm..... I wonder of the GT soundtrack will resemble the 1400 MME. That would be something fun. Jaguar had fun with a soundtrack. I liked it when I was test driving the iPace.
  11. Order ID

    Agreed. Here is my screenshot. Each dealership must have their own numbering scheme.
  12. German: No touching Touchscreen allowed

    I would like to point out that I am not a Tesla hater. They are doing some very great things for the industry. I just think they neglected some things that are important to my demographic group (I am in my early 50s...). At my age, we start to simplify our lifes.....not make them more...
  13. German: No touching Touchscreen allowed

    Understand we all have different tastes and expectations. For many, that design will suffice but not for me. Voice controls are not something I enjoy using. Last resort sort of thing.
  14. German: No touching Touchscreen allowed

    I think the mechanical/tactile interfaces in a Ford are superior than what Tesla provides. 2 seconds to change wiper speed is unacceptable to me. It doesn't rain that often here but when it does, I have to adjust the wiper speed quite often because the severity of the precipitation varies...
  15. The electric “gas can” is here!

    I would like to see vehicle to vehicle charging. I think Rivian has that planned.
  16. Preparing for Mach-E charging at home - preparation and installing charger

    I remember reading that too. That's for the link because I was starting to think I was imaging that. I wonder if they are trying to say the EVSE can detect what voltage is available 120-208-240? I just don't see how it could possibly know what size breaker is in the panel or what size wire...
  17. Preparing for Mach-E charging at home - preparation and installing charger

    I am not sure what features the Ford provided EVSE will have. I presume it's solid state. If so, then some of those units have some user control buttons where they can specify the amp draw. If so, then set to 24 amps and you should be okay. Again....can't really say until we see the...
  18. Scheduled Maintenance

    As already mentioned.....the owner's manual hasn't been released yet so we aren't sure. If it's anything like my Focus Electric then maintenance will be minimal. Once a year (or every 10k miles) Ford asks you to rotate the tires and perform a multi point inspection. Basic stuff....look...
  19. Shopping for a Home Charger

    It can be very confusing for sure. Ford isn't helping matters by calling their unit a "Charger" because that isn't what it does. Remember, the charger is in the car.....all we have to do is supply power to it. We need some way to connect the vehicle to a power source so the onboard...
  20. Shopping for a Home Charger

    The VersiCharge unit you selected seems well built. We have one at work and both my niece and brother each have one at their home garage. No issue with any of those units. Our work unit is mounted outdoors so we hard wired it vs using the built in plug. I prefer the contactor type vs...
