Mustang Mach-E - Grabber Blue - First Edition

It confirms what a lot of us have been seeing. The Mach-E is doing great compared to the EPA estimates. I haven't done a 100-0 range test, but just from normal driving I can estimate that I could get over 308 miles of range if I did (mix of highway and city).

It looks like there must be another bug in the tripmeter (besides the "reset" button in trip1/2 sometimes making the mi/kwh value "freeze"):

282 miles/2.85 hrs = 99 miles per hour!

I am guessing the time value is off as he closely monitored the miles, and the computed mi/kwh is 3.23 rounded up to 3.3 on the display

LOL, I didn't notice that. He made sure he checked the accuracy of the speedometer before he began, but who knew the clock would be the one with an error.

The "This trip" values are quite buggy on mine.

Sometimes the time doesn't reset, sometimes the miles doesn't reset. Sometimes they both reset.

There appears to be an attempt at making "this trip" account for short stops (like running into a store) to not reset it but if that is the case it should not reset all the values, not just randomly pick one....

Reading the youTube comments, it looks like Tom is going to be getting a RWD EX to test as well. Looking forward to that 70mph range test. Hope he gets close to the same weather conditions for that one.

He mentioned in last week‘s InsideEVs podcast that the reason they don’t do that is that it would be at much slower than 70mph, so it would likely artificially stretch the range. I guess it‘s better to just add the small range the GOM shows to the total when the number is so small.

Nice catch. It's nice and all that every reviewer got the fancy first edition and 4X models, but I want to see the RWD EX just crush it!

Not at all because I have a Route 1 🤪

Route 1 will likely go even further than a Premium RWD EX.
