I highly doubt that. Full Self Driving is so full of strange corner cases that we're still a good 5 or even 10 years away, easily.
I think Cadillac's Supercruise technology will be far more useful and ready (heck its ready now) than FSD.
Yes indeed in one of the videos they showed that when the door is "presented" (their term for when its "cracked open so you can grab it") you cannot close the door, it must be opened. They even demonstrated the part that holds the door open retracting when the engineer slowly pulled the door...
Been there, done that: not in a black car but in my Blue Focus Electric which did not have any pedestrian alert sounds (it was made before that mandate was in place).
Driving through a local subdivision and came upon a group of teens walking down the center of the street completely oblivious to...
LMAO! Don't go down that Blue Thunder/Airwolf rabbit hole!
If you really do, here is a hilarious read/take on it:
Link o Today Show segment video:
Short preview clip:
So at the very beginning of this clip you can hear some ICE sounds. Now my question is: Did the producers mix that in with the video or is that...
Looks like they just screen grabbed all the various Ford pages and collected them all on one page. Pretty much all of that information is available on the Ford pages if you're patient and willing to browse around a bit--some of it is buried.
Hey cool they are using an Oculus Quest--hmm I wonder if someone will get their hands on the app their using.
Would be cool to "shrink down" and walk through the insides of the Mach-E.
I would also guess they wanted to start with an EV since there are far fewer (moving) parts to model and...
Ah but it was a serious EV, they just didn't build enough. Auto mags raved about it (one called it "The Tesla for the rest of us").
With the batteries in back it gave it a 50/50 weight ratio and with the Focus body's snappy performance it was a hoot to drive.
Only really had two things...
Just pointing out that the Mach-E is NOT Ford's first attempt at an EV. You may argue that the Focus Electric wasn't developed in-house and thus isn't Ford's first--it has a Ford logo on it and thus is Ford's first EV.
Well I did put 3 or 4 reasons down but the biggest is: Laziness ;) If I don't have to exert that extra effort to move my foot from accelerator to brake then I'm happy--a few less calories I have to expend 🤣;)
This was all done as a package with our power company back in 2013. They were offering up $2500 towards your install, funny our install totaled at $2600--I paid just the $100 difference. (I think they were getting a tax break for customers installing EVSE's and they were just passing that on to...
