My wife has been a big stickler on the size issue with our kids. So part of the reason I'm happy to wait on the GT is that we will surely get to see and test drive a Mach E before having to order it.This is pretty much the most important factor for me. I have 2 little kids in car seats and if the car is too cramped back there then its pointless for me to buy.
Yes, all the other features in this car are fantastic. However, if it doesn't fit my lifestyle then there will probably be +1 Mach-E sitting at the dealer when I am done looking at it.
Top three things for me when it comes to buying a vehicle, and not just a "toy", are:
2. Space for the family
3. Safety from impacts (crash tests)
4. Efficiency/economy/cost of ownership
A lot of people on this forum are head over heels for this thing, but many seem to be wanting this for more frivolous reasons. If you were REALLY trying to save money, you wouldn't be buying a car thats over 45k in the first place. You best be checking those used car lots for a hybrid Prius, lol.
I like your 5 reasons listed. I'd probably swap out the word Price for Value... just to make the distinction that sometimes Price alone doesn't say enough about the 'cost' of the car. So I would lump #1 and #4 on your list together under Value.
