So far the way Ford is handling the Mach E looks to be on point I believe they did their home work on this and have approached it from a different perspective than the ICE cars of the past.I had a pre-reveal Model 3 reservation, but was extremely disappointed that Tesla refused to have them in the showroom when my number came up. One year ago, a salesperson let me test drive a Model 3 Dual Motor Over a weekend. Honestly, it was perhaps the most fun on four wheels that I’ve ever had. However, I have three kids and spouse and live in Minnesota. Dual motor/4-wheel drive is not an option. At 6’3”, the backseat of Model 3 is cramped. I was right to pass, both times.
While the 7-seat Model Y has a appeal... I fear it too will also be cramped.
Honestly, my background is Buick’s. While I had a beater F-150 and my wife had a Focus... I cannot say that I’m a Ford guy. I did rent a Mustang in California for a long weekend about six years ago and it was a blast.
Something about Ford’s approach with Mach-e does resonate.
So, now a First Edition Mach-e reservation awaits and already I’ve checked with Ford Marketing. They told me, “There will be one in the dealership when you confirm your order.” Kudos to Ford! That is the proper way to do business.
I saw the test drive where the guy said, it was one pedal driving... Does anyone here know if the Mach-e has the equivalent of regenerative braking? Is there a sun shade for that big glass and/or full UV protection?
