"and that's why he is now living in his Mach-E"
I recommend for day-to-day use that everyone ignore the "Range" number. It doesn't matter unless you're driving 100+ miles, which statistically, you're not.

You're not going to see "400 mile (minimum)" vehicles at Mach-E's price (or lower), you're going to see the price decline for 200 and 300 mile EVs instead, and more and faster chargers. Nobody needs a 400mi range 99% of their life, so nobody will pay to carry it around.

Don't look at FordPass, use ABRP. FordPass' route planner does indeed suck.
The quicker the charging gets and the more of them there are. Also the better the tech is where the weather plays less apart. The yes he is right. the range will go down overall. That also will help with the total cost.

Yup.

The Mach E isn't for everyone, and that's OK. The rollout has certainly not been trouble free, which is actually fairly common. Ford clearly has work to do in the logistics of a BEV and not everyone is willing to "go along for the ride" as Ford works it out. So far from what I've seen Ford is attacking the problems head on. I foresee Ford replacing the "whining" binnacle screens rather than making customers pay for a new one, but we'll see.

Obviously I wouldn't get the car if it had all those problems. Thats one advantage of not being one of the first to get one, I can watch to see what gets fixed and what doesn't.

Some issues are more deal breakers than others, like the pano roof wind noise would be a big no thanks.
