It's another smoky summer in the PNW. Hopefully the Mach-E's air filter will be able to handle it. Are HEPA replacement filters even a thing?

Yes, here in California, we are facing the same weird smoke air. The Air Quality ratings now are "Unhealthy" Some of the most polluted in the world.

I have friends & family in Portland. The air is "hazardous" there.

I don't know what to wish for. I want to wish for rain to help you all out but I am afraid of the damage that mud slides will cause. I just hope some how you all get relief soon

It's just absolutely horrible here. My buddy has a Tesla Model S with biodefense mode and a HEPA filter. Makes me jealous but also makes me wonder how good it is in the MME.

Had a buddy who left a black tarp outside, and in less than 2 hours it was covered in ash.
And we are breathing this crap!

I imagine it will be good. There are aftermarket versions that are HEPA too. I just hope you don't have to navigate through high voltage wires to replace them.

Ford doesn't currently offer any HEPA or even any advanced odor filtration filters in North America.

Fords in China have advanced filters and onboard PM2.5 monitoring systems, and Fords in Europe have long had advanced filters as well. Whereas we get just dust filters in North America.

We need to make our voices heard if we want this to change. They know how to make those filters good, just look at the China market Aviator:

https://www.chinadaily.com.cn/a/201911/18/WS5dd1f6a7a310cf3e35577fa9.html#:~:text=The Lincoln Aviator's Auto Air,the air in the cabin.
The Lincoln Aviator's Auto Air Refresh feature is one of the industry's first fully integrated interior air monitoring and air cleansing systems. The system features a PM 2.5 laser sensor to monitor cabin air quality, matched with a filter to clean the air in the cabin.

The carmaker said this is the first Lincoln to meet Chinese customers' increasing awareness and demand for satisfactory air quality at home, at work and on the road
