All of the reviews must have missed the games you get to keep you busy during charging... right? ;)
Oh yes. No games is a"huge" dealbraker ๐Ÿ˜‚
But I found a nice solution for the farts we're not supposed to get.
While charging or using the turn signal I'll just fart by myself. No OTA needed and not decreasing battery ๐Ÿ˜‚

That one quote from him has me worried that my knee will constantly hit the screen.
Electrek did a first drive review and knee looked fine. Fred is 6' (182cm) tall. I took a screenshot and you can see he has plenty of room. He made no mention that it was a problem.

Two other items of interest from this video that @Mach-E VLOG posted in the other thread. He's not driving that fast, but it is cold out. I couldn't get a clear screenshot, but after the the two pictures below he was down to 29 kWh/100 km at the 17.6 km mark.

it's not why i'd choose one EV over another.... obviously, since i'm anxiously awaiting my mach-e! :)

but i have to say, it helps win brownie points with the kids/family. it would be super cool at a future OTA update if ford's able to add an "arcade" ala tesla... this is wear tesla and if the rumors are true, apple, can be a real threat to traditional car manufacturers.

unlikely to happen, but for our apple ecosystem family it would be awesome to be able to use apple airplay to stream or mirror iPhone/iPad contents to the upper portion of the mach-e's screen, at least when parked/charging.

Here is the best review to date!!!

Give it a watch and towards the end you get to hear the unbridled up to 102 MPH.

Grabber Blue FE walk around and speed test.

I wonder how much the ticket would be for doing 102mph in a 30mph zone.
I was thinking the same thing, but enjoyed seeing and hearing it. Most reviews are often over spoken and more of the visual goes to the reviewer.

maybe I'm reading into it but I feel like there is some very subtle Tesla shade in this video with the whole "running the hand over the body including across gaps" thing. :)

this is I think the very first video where I've actually heard the little "whir" of the "stop you from catching your hand in the door" guard thingy.

the startup animations etc. seem almost non-existent which is good since there was some early complaints about that in the pre-production road tour cars.

the eBrake release is noticeably quieter than in my Fusion.

they kind of roll through that one stop sign at like 8 mph ๐Ÿ˜‚ before the super fast speeding bit I mean ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ as my gf says, "zero to illegal fast enough" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Maybe he also pointed at the Mach-E 4X on the door to piss off people that are upset at the 4X thing. :cool:

Here is another one which has a great POV as the driver. No review, just a POV from the driver while driving in city and highway. Also demo's the touchscreen and features while driving. I like it.. can't wait.
