I would say it just comes down to your driving needs and charging situation. If you have regular access to a 240V plug (ie in a home garage) and you drive under 150-200 miles a day I’d suggest your probably fine! That, I would guess, represents many Mach E buyers.Oh man....I know this was not an apples to apples test, but wow.....I don’t feel good about the MME and the charging performance. Sucks, because it’s these little videos that make me second guess myself for a little while. I need Tommy to talk me off the ledge.
Currently I wouldn’t feel comfortable road tripping many non Tesla EV’s because the CCS network has given me many challenges. But if you have access to an ICE car for those longer trips I’d also suggest you’re probably still a good contender for the Mustang.
I agree the fast charging speed and ease of use over my week was extremely frustrating. I don’t regularly DC charge though (unless I’m really pushing the car like during the review of the Mach e over the week). If I have to DC charge once every two weeks that would be a lot given my normal driving habits, but that’s because I have regular access to level 2 both at home and at work.
