    NYT Article: Electric Car Age dawning sooner than expected

    I had a Sport Trac back in the day - I still miss is dearly - and it occurs to me that you could pretty easily make a BEV version of it like they are the F-150. but I suppose the higher-end F-150s have now gotten to the luxury level of my beloved truck so there's not really a place for it...

    hers hasn't yet so USB-A but it's there so we'll be set (assuming it is high-power) :)

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    I think there may have been some kind of scandal around him there or something but I don't remember the details, and don't care enough to look it up.

    Speculation: MME Driver Monitoring System powered by Veoneer HW and Seeing Machines logic

    as a reference point, it's public knowledge that at least Google and Microsoft both use FPGAs (e.g. Microsoft offloads networking to FPGA-powered NICs • The Register (theregister.com) ) for mainstream-ish use cases and have for years. "Cloud computing" has pushed the industry forward pretty...

    Ford is opening up some more First Edition Mach-E orders

    hey, you have to let all the dirt out somehow. it's a feature, not a bug.

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    see, I slow walked this. Told the GF last year I had reserved a Mustang. She promptly forgot. Told her again I had done so in June. She kind of missed it again. But then one of her friends a couple of weeks ago goes "did you see the new Mustang? it's terrible blah blah blah" and that's...

    Prototype Mach-E (in Rapid Red Metallic) showed up at work today

    It's a simple, two-step process: Get hired by Ford, ideally at the Mexico plant. Go to Ford as an employee and ta-da! As they say on TV, "it's just that easy!"

    VW ID.4 to get three years of free EA Charging

    this is somewhat "lawyer parsing" but I don't agree with your interpretation of: I will admit that since I am not, in fact, a lawyer, this could just be my incorrect reading of this statement.

    GM announced Supercuise pricing (hands free ACC and Autosteer)

    This reminds me of navigation updates. Years and years ago, I was talking with my boss, who just bought a brand-spanking new Ford Five Hundred. (that should date this story) It had Nav, and I had Nav in my Honda at the time. We both agreed that if they did a one-up, flat fee at purchase...

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    You know what would be fun? some kind of kick-ass surprise announcement tomorrow immediately after Battery Day. Something like a revised upward EPA estimate or downward 0-60 time. On the other hand it might be "lost" in the post-Battery-Day noise. because I guarantee that no matter what...

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    Idris Elba has so far I believe only been used for Mach-E specific stuff. Bryan Cranston has been the main Ford commercial voice for a few years now, like Will Arnett has been for GMC. all three factual statements in there are things that no normal human should know or care about.

    VW ID.4 to get three years of free EA Charging

    My point is, it makes no sense (to me at least) to call out commercial use here, unless it's a usage level concern. The disclaimer says they can change the deal at any time (*), so... we'll see what happens if someone pushes their luck and ruins it for everyone. (**) (*) "pray that I don't...

    Explorer with Ford Co-Pilot360 earns IIHS Top Safely Pick+

    I'm too lazy to go look again but pretty sure the IIHS site said that the results were for vehicles "built after May 2020" or some such.

    VW ID.4 to get three years of free EA Charging

    for the idle charge, sure. but the rideshare/commercial disclaimer is what leads me to think there's an unstated limit - folks that can't necessarily charge at home as often. Just speculation on my part.

    Charging Pad Dimensions?

    the GF only ever uses her iPad in the passenger seat so it's Official Certified (tm)(R) Lightning (tm)(R) cable all the way anyway. I understand this is a very specific use case.

    VW ID.4 to get three years of free EA Charging

    that post doesn't link to the source, which is just dumb on Electrek's part. here's the press release: Electrify America and Volkswagen of America announce agreement providing unlimited charging plan for owners of the all-new 2021 ID.4 electric SUV - Volkswagen US Media Site (vw.com) the...

    so, a Mack-E being discussed on a Mach-E site. I bet with the right accent you could easily confuse those two.
