Remember in california they are banning the per minute charges for EVs so it will just be the kWh charge.
Not exactly. They just have to show the per kWh price and the other charges separately.

From what I got from the legislator companies can not charge a per minute basis for charging car since that is not a recognized method of measurement. Now they can charge a wait time, initial start fee, and something else but can not charge a per minute while charging unless you are fully charged then you get charged per minute for holding up the charging space when not needed

Just have to itemize the parking and other costs from the per kWh costs.

"“Electric vehicle service providers are allowed to charge ancillary fees such as: a connection fee; waiting fee for staying connected after reaching full state of charge; parking fee where such charges are normally applied; and a non-network access fee where applicable, provided that these fees are disclosed to the consumer prior to initiating a charging session (there may be other allowed fees not identified in this example).”

Please start new thread on "KW Charging Rates Across The USA" We all gotta get back
to looking at this beautiful Mach 3. This Info helps all of us.

Thanks for the link, @Sweetwater. So much great info on one page.

One discrepancy from the public Ford web site... The Select is shown with options for SR or ER batteries. I wonder if Ford will be updating the site shortly to show all these extra details and the final options packages.

I noticed that too and am intrigued. Would be great to get the ER without having to upgrade to premium trim.

I would think if a dealer is listing this then it might be correct cause this might be a dealer only spec sheet. Ford will probably release that info later but if the select base model has extended range I might jump on that on. As the others are a bit over my price range so if the base has bigger battery would choose that one instead.

Or their web guy screwed up, which is more likely

So... I will have to go... creepy creepy... less than 1 mph... and the pedestrian feels a set of eyes on their back.

They turn around {INSERT INTENSE DRAMATIC MUSIC HERE}

There I am looking at them over the hood of my newly polished and waxed Tuxedo Black Mach-E!

MUAH MUAH HAHAHAHAHA

Too funny! In all seriousness, I hope there’s a way to enable the top performance mode without piping in the fake ‘engine’ noise. I know they worked hard on that feature, and perhaps hearing will equal believing, but the idea strikes me as tacky.

i want a quiet car.

part of the beauty of an electric drivetrain, for me, is greater chance to have a quiet car.

in fact, i hope the mach-e’s wind and road noise is quieter than in teslas. hopefully greater experience with door seals, insulation, etc will help. or how about some airpod pro-like noise cancellation tech using the car’s mic and speakers?

Information posted elsewhere has said the interior noise can be turned off. The exterior wouldn't be due to regulations.

The premium trim will have the SoundScreen acoustic glass for the windshield and front windows. I’m not sure about the other trims.

My 2015 Lincoln has noise cancelling piped thru the vehicle speakers and it works pretty well. I can't see any reason a 2021 Mach E couldn't have the same technology. Probably too late, but .... are you listening Ford? The one "noise" that needs a bit more work on the Lincoln is tire noise. Tire noise can vary quite widely between brands.
