Ford is already doing the video game DLC business model. They hold back hands-free driving; something that should have just shipped with the car, and then sell it later as planned, paid DLC.Oh you mean the video game DLC model
We know new features are coming that won't be charged for. Doesn't matter if you believe it, or really anyone else believes it. Reality doesn't care about your beliefs.Ford is already doing the video game DLC business model.

If there are any new features added, be prepared to fork over extra money for them. OTA isn’t a feature, it is a venue to sell software and to avoid expensive recalls.
not on this thread, but there's a whole thread about it.Not sure if this was posted. Here goes....
I really don't mind going to the dealer for critical updates as long as:We can all agree there is a massive difference between updating Nav maps or audio software with core vehicle features that could affect safety. Considering how small the MME consumer fleet is, Ford needs to nail this to instil customer confidence.
As EV's technology moves forward, it's not a question of if? But when! Not all vehicles have this potential, I'm glad the Mach-e does.Everyone touting OTA's from Ford, including Ford. Just wondering if Ford will really do regular OTA's fixing, adding or enhancing features of the mustang. I am so hopeful, but very skeptical that they actually will.
communication in a customer facing Portal, newletter, or 'push' emails to Owners would be nice..... I spent 20 years in Software development and product release and would suggest that the quality of communication regarding what's being worked on, when its available, and rolling it out smoothly and proactively is just as important as what the actual enhancements are.100% chance of OTAs. Schedule has been established and features are being planned. Things are happening behind the scenes.
