Good find! I like how the energy use screen has category breakdowns for how energy is being used.

And I know some aren't fans of large vertical screens that aren't integrated into the dash, but functionality wise they seem great. They give you enough space for split screen menus/controls that traditional nav screen sizes can't fit.

The usage by category is great, but I'd like to see a cardinal number next to the description in addition to the graph. To me trying to gauge how much of the box is taken up by each bar is annoying, I would rather have it tell me where my energy is going clearly than have a cute graphic

I really like the physical volume knob. It's annoying in a Tesla for a passenger to change the volume (driver at least has the steering wheel scrollwheel). And it probably doesn't just serve as volume button. With that center part being a display the knob can be contextual and serve different purposes in different menus. 👍

As the actual volume symbol is on the screen I do hope that the dial can be contextual similar to what has been used by jaguar / range rover as it would nice to cycle through some of the HVAC controls and use the dial instead.

hoping ford/sync team allow apple the use of the front display as well (or at least part of it).

granted we've only seen pre-production models, but the current use seems like such a waste of valuable screen space...but if waze directions (or speed traps info) could be shown on the front display via apple carplay, that would so awesome -- and a huge leg up on tesla!
