    Ford Charging Station Now Available on Fordparts.com

    I don't believe ground service check and GFCI are inherently in conflict. Manufacturers recommends avoiding GFCI receptacle for two reasons: * Their ground service check in their product is low quality: it is implemented in a fashion that may sometimes (sometimes or always) leak too much...

    2021 Mach-E User Manual Now Available!

    Why is that bothering to you? The way Ford implements locking may make it a non-problem for you. On my current Ford vehicle, front door (both driver and passenger) can be opened from inside with just one pull (the same action as if the car is unlocked) even if the car is locked. For the back...

    2021 Mach-E User Manual Now Available!

    Ah. This whole frunk divider development finally makes sense now. Here is goes: In certain countries, there may be laws governing the opening mechanism of the frunk. That makes sense, it would be dangerous if it opens while driving. This poses a dilemma on the emergency open button in the...

    2021 Mach-E User Manual Now Available!

    According to the manual, the key has a key blade in it. However, there is no mention of key hole anywhere. And it says: How to unlock my vehicle if the 12 volt battery is dead? You must apply 12 volt power to the 12 volt system. See Jump Starting the Vehicle (page 269). It doesn't bother me...

    More rebates in California!!!

    The article is wrong. The SCE $1000 or PG&E $800 cannot stack with the new $1500 Clean Fuel Reward. Both SCE website and PG&E website are explicit about this. There is an existing thread specifically for this topic already at...

    CA Clean Fuel Reward started today for extra $1500 off at purchase for EV

    PG&E website says the following if you click the "Apply" button for the $800 Clean Fuel Rebate. So @VegStang is correct that one cannot get both even if one gets their car by 12/31. See below (emphasis mine). Attention: The Clean Fuel Rebate program will be closing at the end of 2020. All...

    CA Clean Fuel Reward started today for extra $1500 off at purchase for EV

    Right now, the only Ford dealer in SF bay area is in Walnut Creek. I don't see Serramonte Ford (Colma), Towne Ford (Redwood City), James Ford (Half Moon Bay), Sunnyvale Ford, Frontier Ford (Santa Clara), Capital Ford (San Jose), Fremont Ford, Livermore Ford, etc. I hope they'll all join very soon.

    Can you charge Mach-E with NEMA 6-50 plug?

    Are you confident that Ford Mobile Charger doesn't have GFCI built in? I have assumed that all EVSEs do. It would be even better if you can provide a source for that.

    Can you charge Mach-E with NEMA 6-50 plug?

    You would have to run an extra wire for the neutral. If I have to choose between 6-50P/14-50R adapter and a 14-50 receptacle with floating neutral. I'd pick the adapter without hesitation. With an adapter, it's obvious to you and to future owner/resident/electrician of your home what's going on.

    Can you charge Mach-E with NEMA 6-50 plug?

    Most EVSEs don't use the neutral pin in a 14-50 receptacle. Therefore, such an adapter is OK. However, be aware that such an adapter could easily damage the appliance and/or lead to a dangerous situation because the neutral pin in the 14-50 receptacle provided by the adapter will be floating...

    Feature requests for tablet software and dash

    Yeah, on a CMax, when you come to full stop, instrument cluster shows a score (which I interpret as what percentage of deceleration was achieved through regeneration).

    Charging in the rain / wet - any electrocution risk?

    If you somehow submerge the charge plug/port in water, you still will not get shocked. The EVSE will refuse to start charging (or stop charging if it was actively charging).

    Charging in the rain / wet - any electrocution risk?

    In addition to the voltage and current not being present in the plug until the handshake (between EVSE and car) completes successfully, all properly-certified EVSE have built-in GFCI support. GFCI stops the current when it detects current leakage (e.g. through your body to the ground, or through...

    Newest look at Mach-E GT

    Delaying Select would be a really customer-hostile move. Certain manufacturers do it. But that doesn't make it OK or acceptable. I ordered a Premium, so it doesn't really affect me.

    Newest look at Mach-E GT

    "late summer 2021" probably means no earlier than September 2021. That's another year of waiting. I'm glad that I'm not into GT :D

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    With the way California taxes car sales (and offer no trade in credit), I'm pretty confident that you'll pay sales tax on the entire msrp+destination. I'm interested in the $2500 credit, but fully intend to keep the car beyond 3 years. So that's not a concern to me.

    US investigates fire reports in Chevy Bolt electric vehicles

    We know that the first 8000 Mach E will receive their battery from LG Chem's South Korea factory. Is that the same factory?

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Buyer can get the credit from IRS and then apply the money it received from IRS to the account. I have always interpreted "apply the tax credit to your account" this way.

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    I suppose it's like additional principal payment in loans/mortgages, followed by a recast/re-amortization of the rest of the payments.

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Yeah, I don't want to screw over my dealer. 3 or 4 months is totally fine.
