  1. NYT Article: Electric Car Age dawning sooner than expected

    Agree, articles that mention aerodynamics all get somewhat of an eye roll from me as they all seem to forget that most manufactures have made low drag test vehicles eons ago so its is not some huge unknown. It is just as bad as tesla owners that bang on about an EV with a font grill design...
  2. Did anyone watch the Mach-E webex?

    If it was amazing then they would have probably already mentioned it as far back as the reveal, the mustangification that resulted in squaring of and raising the hood / bonnet line wont have helped, so surpasses the benchmarks probably means the end result wasn't as bad as expected. All ford...
  3. Polestar or MME?

    Well lets hope so as being able to read manual in advance is useful and helps answer a lot of unknowns and possible deal-breakers. I also hope the demonstrators turn up before I have to convert my reservation as while I hope the mach-e drives well, I don't like that the European versions are...
  4. Polestar or MME?

    As others have said, everyone is different so it really is hard to second guess as what I may like and class as deal breakers you may find the complete opposite. However I do have the polestar 2 down as an alternative as it has a lot of plus points and things I like. My ultimate decision will...
  5. Since we are buying Mach E online but not really

    I was hoping with all the all the early talk from ford about a new way to purchase we would get exactly that but alas no :( Besides for the the amount we are paying for shipping I would want the transporter to drive right past the dealer and delivery it direct to my front door, the dealer can...
  6. RAPID RED METALLIC Mach-E Club

    Bit unrelated but as most of the shots of wheels have always tend to gloss over the calipers but with these you can easily see the inserts of the brembo felixra calipers https://www.bremboparts.com/europe/en/news/flexira-the-new-technology-for-compact-calipers-89149
  7. RAPID RED METALLIC Mach-E Club

    In some EU countries you have to legally run winter tires during the winter months so people have a different set of wheels with winter tires, however even in places where you do not it is quite typical for a EU vehicle to be sold with summer tires. Naturally it all depends on your driving...
  8. How far can EVs go at 70mph constant?

    Interesting so which 400 mile journey did you do if you don't mind me asking to give people an idea of the terrain as 400 miles on a panckae flat surface with a tail wind is going to yeild different results compared to 400 mile journey into a head wind uphill.
  9. Navigation and range warnings from SYNC 4A

    They should all be able to be removed, the side head rests will bock the most view, euro cars tend to have nice head rests that can sit flush the same as the center, that you push up when sitting in the rear seat while the USA always gets ones the same as the front that block most of the view...
  10. Breaking News from Norway-increased charging speed/capacity and range of vehicle

    Even taking legacy 55mph into account then the test really should be at 55mph, 48mph for a highway is ridiculous, sure I have to crawl along during the commute on my way home, but once past the normal congestion points even with still quite heavy traffic you are moving at 55-60 mph. The...
  11. Going for a ride in a Mach-E tomorrow!

    The extended range and standard range should have the same amount of space in the back, while the extended range batteries are an additional set sitting on top at the back under the rear seats, the standard and extended range are supposed to share the exact same battery case so it is more a...
  12. Motor Trend 2021 Car issue

    While the attention to detail may reduce when the mach-e is produced in significant numbers with out a large number of model derivatives I think we will be ok in that regard, I can't really see a large amount of mixing and matching of parts which can lead to problems, even when throwing the GT...
  13. Making of a New Breed: Remixing the Mustang Mach-E's Electronic Propulsion Noises

    While no doubt a bit late for launch, Ford really needs to add a 4th custom / user mode via over-the air update that lets owners chose what they want for the various features as is common in other brands. Fords lack of custom mode mentality just doesn't cut it, take my focus RS if I want the...
  14. Headlights

    While antiquated rules are still in place the rest of the world in the coming years will be looking forward to the advanced projector headlamps (see audi e-tron sportback) technology trickle down the range and become common place while we will still be stuck with 60's tech. For the cost of the...
  15. Headlights

    While they do no move, my focus has additional cornering lamps that kick in when your turn the wheel a certain amount to better illuminate corners, some manufactures do this using the front fog lights (the focus does not), I hope the mach-e at least still has this functionality going to be a bit...
  16. Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    One advantage the mach-e has is the very limited numbers being produced as 50000 units is nothing, battery supply will be the limiting factor, so there is a good chance there will be plenty of time for quality control. The explorer was a poor launch, but the Chicago plant doesn't have the best...
  17. 2021 Mach-E X-Plan Pricing Released

    Typically (check as things are always subject to change) there should be no prepayment penalties on ford credit, so you can pay the loan in full at anytime and still get the incentive if you qualify for the credit, so even if you are lucky enough to be able to pay cash, or have a credit union /...
  18. RAPID RED METALLIC Mach-E Club

    It is was pretty standard for ford in euro land to use a licence plate with characters on it that would work when mirrored to easily create left and right hand drive images from the same source, but with digital images not really an issue anymore that is of course if manufactures even both using...
  19. Handling on Standard Range vs Extended Range Premium Models

    The extra battery pack for the long range is stacked on top of the main pack under the rear seats, so the center of gravity is going to be slightly different. Without published specs of weight distribution the extra weight in the rear of the batteries I expect will probably be more than the...
  20. Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    Also is case of the bronco was not the extras just down to delays in the system as people got confirmation of getting a first edition while the system was slowly accumulating the number and unlike the mach-e as all the first editions where reserved on the first day they got confirmations as the...
