That's no small thing and should not be undersold. I hate plastic and Styrofoam packaging as it is largely unnecessary. Not exactly surprised given Ford's recent rankings on the purity of its supply chain. Oh so yah, I care. 😁
Just want to throw in my hat with the "I care about non-plastic packaging" crowd. I love it when a company uses mostly cardboard for product packaging, especially since the vast majority of recyclable plastic still ends up in landfills.

I also appreciate the engineering involved in making product packaging out of folded cardboard with minimal amounts of tape or wire ties. It's fascinating to see what they come up with.

Edit: Because someone reacted with the laughing emoji, I should note that the above was sincere. It may not sound like it if you don't care about packaging materials (which is fine; you do you), but I find it an interesting subject.

Just wondering outloud here: I have a ship date of April; but in general I'm 1-3 months behind in getting OTA's once I see them start popping up on the forum. For instance, I received 6.8.0 about 2-3 weeks ago.

Is it possible I receive the Adaptor prior to getting the OTA to use it?? Or do you think Ford will push this OTA out faster to the "herd"?

Was wondering the same thing, I'm on 6.6 and haven't had an update since 12/15/23

I hate ford, I think farley is a chronic liar (which ceo millionaire isn't?), and I had such a terrible experience with my Mach-e i sold it within the first year of purchase.

...

But i gotta admit that letter, gifting the adapters, all of this is just awesome. Classy move, Ford. I'm happy you guys are happy and that you guys love your Mach-E's so much!

(edit: i didnt hate ford before i bought the car)

I already have the updates in both my car and the FordPass. Now just waiting for the adaptor which my reservation indicated I won't get mine until July.

Sorry, new to this. Is this adapter only for F150 Lightning owners?

Works for the Mach-e, too.
You can order/reserve the adapter through Connected Services in your Ford Pass app.

Who from Ford explicitly gave that information? Are you referring to the clickbait article that said they COULD be working on 800v?
I’ll keep saying this, but I don’t care that much about 800v. It can lead to more problems (look at Hyundai / Kia that are going to be hamstrung at superchargers).

Ford just needs to improve the battery harness and thermals so that their EVs support a better charging curve that sustains higher rates for longer periods of time

That was nice gesture from Ford!! Did you have to do anything to get this GIFT? Or it just came in by itself? Thanks.

Well I just got the 24-PU0119-DC-CHG4 update today, and my last power-up was 6.3.0, so now we know.

You have to register for it. Other threads here have the details of how to do it, including the one from Ford
