Agreed...I have been watching their videos this whole time thinking, "but they could have had the faster, better one!"I really wonder why Ford gave them a SR version. Maybe it was just a matter of logistics, but they must have known that TFL would be doing range tests, so you would think they would have wanted to put their best foot forward.
Appeared very unscientific and pre biased. Bottom line was both made it?TFL puts the Mach E standard range up against the Tesla Model Y Performance.
Not an super-equal competition but honestly...the biggest loser in this video is Electrify America.
Thanks for watching! I did try an 80% Charge (or there about). It was at an EVgo, the station wouldn't tell me the kW it was delivering but over the course of a 15-20 minute shopping run the car gained about 3%.Appeared very unscientific and pre biased. Bottom line was both made it?
The highly informative 8 minute charging test . It does appear to be a possible handshake issue between the ford and EA chargers right now. Speed bump for now and will get ironed out. I want to see the above 80% charging as that is not a compatibility issue but hard coded. I do not think Ford would release a product that means so much with a major hardware problem. Time will tell.
I initially had proposed bringing them back to the office to see the exact kWh delivered using our level 2 charger, but we decided to test out the EA plug and charge instead. However if we do some simple math:I was hoping for a more exact summary of miles per kWh
The Europeans are getting a 150 KW peak and a steady 90 KW up to 80% then it drops to level 2 11 KW range. Not sure what the 15 to 20 minute shopping run says about EVgo?Thanks for watching!

Yeah, it's clear that the GOM in the MME is far more conservative than the rating-based range indicator in the Tesla. At least that means that if the MME says we can make it somewhere, we probably can.I have to say I really like the real range accuracy of the Mach e. It was much more accurate than the Y was
The standard battery version of the MME actually has a max charging rate of 115kW, not that you were getting anywhere near that anyway. The extended range battery is rated for 150kW.Interesting. The highest I saw during the week over 4 charging sessions was mid 40kW.
