Lights projected onto the ground outside the driver's side door when getting in out? How cool! Never heard of that one before.

That's an impressive page of features. And well presented. Very enticing for the "Average Joe" customer.

They have had that for a while. My 2014 Taurus SHO has that.

Thanks for the link. Nice to know about the inclination/tilt security sensor.

That was fantastic. Ford must be making that available to dealers, but none of the half dozen dealers near me have any Mach E information. I am so not looking forward to dealing with a Ford dealer.
This is all from the eSource book that Ford has published and is available to the dealers online. If the dealer says don’t know this information it’s because they haven’t read what Ford has provided yet (because there is a bit more information than what you see on this link).

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.

"Puddle lights" from Ford have been around for a bit. I had them on my 2005 Freestyle SEL.

"Whisper mode". Reminds me of the old '80's program "AirWolf". The helicopter used have "Whisper Mode" when they was doing some stealth approach.

Talking of stealth. So much for scaring unsuspecting pedestrians in the parking lots. Shit.

Headlight activated wipers? Hmmm... I wonder if that is like our Canadian Day Time Running lights? On my Flex, my Fog Lights are my DRLs.

The more I read, the more I want this vehicle.

That's some good info and definitely looks like there's more to it beyond just this surface presentation. I would like to know more.

I am probably reading to much into the words, but I found an interesting nuance in the section about batteries and range. It says they are targeting "over 210 miles" for std AWD, "over 230 miles" for std RWD and "over 270 miles" for ER AWD. But for ER RWD, it says "about 300 miles" instead of "over 300 miles". Hedging their bets?

I remember Blue Thunder had whisper mode. There's a shortage of helicopter shows in modern entertainment.

Back in 2010 I was riding my bike on some lovely San Diego county back roads with no traffic when a car whizzed by me in almost total silence. Scared the s#it out of me 'cuz it seemingly came out of nowhere. That was my first experience with a Tesla and it was next level. Here we are ten years later. What a time to be alive.

LMAO! Don't go down that Blue Thunder/Airwolf rabbit hole!

If you really do, here is a hilarious read/take on it:

It's been said quite a bit on this forum that there's a common belief that the targeted range and acceleration specs are sandbagged. Tesla Model Y's initial specs were probably the benchmark and Ford just needed to put the hardware in place to come close to it. Now that Tesla has upped the benchmark, we'll likely see some revisions to the performance specs by the time the vehicle comes to production *fingers crossed*.
