I was just talking to my wife about the same thing. If those cars that left the plant have to come back for rework, then the cars sitting there already can get fixed while the ones from KC are in transit. The train carriers that returned the shipped ones from KC could then be filled with the already fixed cars to head back to KC.Hmm..I wonder if those of us in the in-between of produced but sitting at the factory still might benefit from proximity and get this issue fixed sooner? Thought I guess that depends on just how long it takes to figure out what fix needs to happen.
No, I'm pretty curious what people who walk away would consider. No tongue-in-cheek intended.Is that tongue in cheek? Cuz I can think of some notable competitors with 1mo lead times.
It's unrelated to this issue of the delay, but the point about battery preconditioning is something we do deserve clear answers from Ford on. To me, it's absolutely vital that any EV with fast charging have en-route preconditioning, and TFL's video does suggest Mach-E doesn't, and that it "coldgates" as a result. I wish we could get Ford to confirm their plans on en-route preconditioning.The charging issue is that they need to precondition the battery like Tesla before L3 charging! I was told that this would not be necessary but it certainly is
No, they are not going to delay delivering $75m worth of inventory over an order processing snafu. They're selling through dealers who can photocopy forms to fill out if necessary.
