Sounds like the Tesla (and other BEVs) are smaller. Long hood of the MME gives it the largest frunk which, ironically, seems to then run into a regulatory buzzsaw, if in fact the electronic lockout is not due to a technical engineering problem.
Is the MME trunk that much larger than Tesla, iPace, etc? Do we think the regulation about an escape button doesn't apply to other EVs because they are too small for anyone to get trapped in the first place?
I've been moving towards a BEV the last three cars - hybrid to PHEV to (soon) BEV.
I admire Tesla but I don't think EV's will get mass adoption until mass market manufacturers are producing them; until now all the alternatives to Tesla were either too expensive (IPace, eTron) or not that much...
So my observations:
The drive is incredible. Although I have not driven a Tesla, I've been driven in them and this was comparable. I've driven Nissan Leaf and Renault Fluence EV, all were way more pedestrian than the Mach E, which was much, much faster than my Fusion Energi. Acceleration off...
