You will need those extra miles because when you get your car, like many of us that have our cars now, won’t charge from a L2 EVSE from a 240V outlet.Well, I just received the email at 5:45 this morning. My delivery was supposed to be between 2/20-2/26, but my dealer still hasn't seen my car. I do not have any mention of the $1,000 off, so it definitely does not seem to be something for First Edition buyers, unfortunately. Gah, I just want my car already!!! I don't even really have a use for the extra EA charging, so some other form of compensation certainly would have been preferred.
I had seen mention of that in one of the other threads. Feel free to direct me to one of the other threads to read up more on that to avoid cluttering up this one, but I would assume that there are many owners at this point who *are* able to charge on a 240v outlet and that it is only a subset of owners who are not able to, right? Or is it across the board? I had a 14-50 NEMA 240v outlet run to my garage (no 3rd party or Ford EVSE in-play; just the outlet), so I guess I wonder if I need that modified in any way to work or if it is an issue with the car that needs to be addressed. I have plans for a road trip at the end of March that I was assuming I would have the Mach E in time for and I will definitely need L2 charging speeds for it, so I am crossing my fingers that there is either a fix or that I can mitigate this problem before then. Sadly, there are no EA charging facilities in the area that I am heading on my road trip either.You will need those extra miles because when you get your car, like many of us that have our cars now, won’t charge from a L2 EVSE from a 240V outlet.
Sorry, but nothing is that absolute. The link is indeed to the ford.com domain.This e-mail is totally, totally suspect. The fact that there is a link to click on - the header includes your name in capital letters AND your last name - the mail doesn't state from "Ford Motor Company" as does their typical official branding - a phone number for you to call is a red flag - and the address it is sent from is also a big red flag.. I work in IT and see these types of messages from time to time.. this is 100% spam and it is NOT legit. Do not click on that link, do not call that number. You have been warned.
