This is by far the best information I've seen in one place. Did I see that folding power mirrors are not included on the premium trim? If so, that's dissapointing.

According to the order and packaging guides posted last month, power folding side-view mirrors are standard on the Premium trim.

Again with the NEMA outlet typo's. I'd like the author of the training document to take this 1 question quiz: What is the NEMA connector name for the level 2 Ford Mobile Charger? HINT: it is not 15-50.
Can you say cut and paste?

Now Ford . . . Since that owners Manual is digital and interactive, how about releasing it for MME confirmed orders so that we can study up and know even more than the dealer before we get our cars. Yeah, I’m that nerd that actually READS the owners manual - I don’t just look at the pictures. 😉
I do too. What a good idea. I keep checking the website. Nothing yet

I thought this was interesting in the charging section:

"They can also program home charging times with a Ford Connected Charge Station "

So it seems that scheduling home charging can only happen if you have the Charging Station, not the mobile charger...is that right?

Given that the difference in charging speed is about 7 - 9 miles per hour between the included mobile (on 240 outlet) and the Charging Station, I was only going to use the mobile charger. But of course wanted the ability to schedule my home charging times since i thought setting the schedule can be done in the car or via the app. If that is not the case, I will want the Charging Station.

You'll be able to schedule the charging from within the car regardless of the EVSE used to charge it.

So it is 14-50 right? cause the brochure I got from the dealer also says 15-50
Yes its a 14-50.

I'm thinking of using a dummy email account to mail it to my local dealer. There aren't many of us on the island who ordered the MME and I want plausible deniability. :p
Well, I think I am only one of 4 or 5 that placed an order at my dealer . . . so in a way, I am on a figurative island myself.

My question is now generated from page 16 of the training document. "When the system determines eAWD is not likely to be needed, it enters an efficiency mode that balances the torque split in a way that uses the least energy"

So is that to still keep the estimated range at 210? Or will this feature increase the estimated range? Can I choose to turn off the eAWD manually to increase the range?

There won't be any manual controls over the eAWD modes.

Like already mentioned....no manual controls. The software will be able to do this much better than a human driver could.

However, your question is very interesting...
If you did have manual control.....which motor would you turn off? Front or rear?
I ask this question because I am super curious myself. I half suspect the vehicle might rely heavily on the forward motor but I hope not. I really want the driving experience of a rear wheel drive vehicle primarily......so much so that I considered NOT ordering AWD. But in the end, the performance and stability benefits won the battle in my mind and I went with AWD.

Thinking out loud further......I know about 200 hp is about the max for the front steering axles before torque steer becomes a major problem. I am very curious to see how the Ford GT solves that problem. The I-Pace does it very well....I am sure they modulate the front motor quite heavily.

Don't know specifically if the Mach-e does this (I assume so), but I've read BEVs will use the different gear ratios between front and rear to mimic a transmission. In other words, use the lower geared motor+differential (rear I think) more at lower speeds and needing more torque, but for highway cruising use the higher gear (front) for efficiency.

I know the Mach-e does have different gear ratios front to back.

Correct. Except for perhaps the GT. That model should have the same ratio up front but I haven't seen confirmation either way just yet.
