  1. Volkswagen aims to sell 500,000 ID.4 electric crossovers annually by 2025

    The chevy bolt is a hatch, as is the Nissan Leaf, both sold in the US in a BEV form.
  2. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    Part of it is the EPA allows additional tests to alter the adjustment factor, which on a few companies (like Tesla) have done. From: https://www.caranddriver.com/features/a33824052/adjustment-factor-tesla-uses-for-big-epa-range-numbers/ : The default adjustment factor reduces the window-sticker...
  3. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    Yes, they probably like iteger / 2 significant digits. If you go by the base numbers and calculate useable both assuming 10% buffer they come up with the numbers posted at https://www.ford.com/buy-site-wide-content/overlays/mach-e-overlays/mach-e-faq/ which makes more sense then ER having 11%...
  4. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    I don't think those were declared final when published (and who is to say they are the same over all regions... they could adjust that based on climate). That said, it does seem strange that the ER would have a larger by %....?
  5. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    Shows 17,2 (not that it's much better than 17.5). I am guess it's because they have same size reserve/buffer instead of increasing the reserve with the larger battery. That said, the buffer shouldn't count toward to kWh/100km, but it would explain the max range difference.
  6. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    540km = 335.5 miles, which would be great, if EPA... will be disappointed if those come out lower than originally planned.
  7. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    Are you certain about that? If I run the numbers with a 20% reserve of the SR, and then use that same reserve (15.2) on the ER then the distance matches after scaling (rounding to 2 significant digits). (That would mean a 15.35% buffer on the ER and 20% on SR)
  8. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    Don't know if you are reading it wrong or not (I'm not looking at the numbers), but my guess is a fixed size buffer between the two batteries, so the smaller battery the buffer takes a larger %.
  9. Ford Announces RWD WLTP Range Increase, Norwegian Orders Starting September 17th

    I wouldn't be surprised if Ford was a little conservative on the numbers as it will be better to over-deliver (free press!) than to fall short of customer expectations. ie: Aim for 316 (5% margin) but advertise 300. They have already updated a few numbers (all improvements). I will be more...
  10. Polestar or MME?

    Would be ok for carrying portable charging cables, and maybe some other misc tools. You could say it's no worse than the average ICE vehicle.
  11. Mach-E tester crashed into during evaluation

    Maybe it's just me, or just the close up on the back, but the gaps look bigger. Would be best to have before and after pics. I assume it was verified trunk opens and closes without issue?
  12. Video: Cuautitlan Plant Employees Drive the Mach-E on Factory Test Track

    Maybe it's not fully installed yet (as per touch screen) and they want to wear out the breaks first before putting the red ones on.
  13. Polestar or MME?

    Would definitely like to see that for the Mach E (and Tesla Y also didn't appear to be listed) (and chevy Bolt while wanting things to compare too...)
  14. Tesla model 3 Performance has 80.5kWh battery pack, 250kW charging capabilities but takes 40 minutes to charge?

    Modern heat pumps have a wide range, and can typically be effective below 0. That said, there is generally a a limit between hot and cold side, but that can be increased with a multi-stage, and generally have lower efficiency at lower temperatures, but still effective.
  15. Tesla model 3 Performance has 80.5kWh battery pack, 250kW charging capabilities but takes 40 minutes to charge?

    Not suggesting it would both me either... That said, my wife gets all nervous when the gas tank is down to a quarter of the tank, and it's easier to find a dozen gas stations than a single charging station in this area of the country. Reports of charging stations being down or unavailable for...
  16. Tesla model 3 Performance has 80.5kWh battery pack, 250kW charging capabilities but takes 40 minutes to charge?

    In case where you were planning to charge at is down/full and you need enough charge to make it to the next.
  17. Ford Go Electric events in the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France, and Spain

    That may be, but if you follow their "official" links around you come to: https://www.ford.co.uk/experience-ford/motor-shows/events which says all the events were canceled... so either that isn't updated (more likely) as it should be, or announcements of a canceled event are going out...
  18. Polestar or MME?

    To be fair, it is important to note you are comparing support of a shipping car and one not shipping yet. That said, it's still not acceptable...
  19. DCFC. How important to current EV owners?

    IMO, a DCFC will not make much difference resale value for a plug-in hybrid. Their all electric range is so low it would be crazy to stop every 15 minutes. That said, even a low range (150 miles) all EV it would be a requirement...
  20. Ford Go Electric events in the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, France, and Spain

    I'm a little envious, it's annoying no ride alongs (that I know of) in the US.... Hoping some get a chance to give some impressions of the vehicle. Can't have too many for at least a couple more months....
