Many events like this happened around the UK including little old Stoke-on-Trent of which there were sessions throughout the day. Basically, after coming away from the event I just wanted to get my Mach E ASAP!

The actual car in the video is one of a handful doing the rounds in Europe which were apparently hand built at a cost of 1 million GBP each. The fit and finish were that of the best German cars and everything about it felt special. To answer your specific question, it felt no different in ride height to my F-Pace which I feel is a good height. As I said the event was invitation only and the list of things that they said you could and couldn't do was very long. But hey when I got there the chap who gave me the presentation was happy for me to play with everything and take photos/videos if I wanted. I didn't but probably I should have done for prosperity. For me the only disappointment was the colour but that's very subjective. One thing the chap said that is worth mentioning, and this may only apply to UK customers is that I would be contacted when it was my turn and at that time I could order any model with any options in any colour. So it appears the UK pre-order is really just a place in the queue.
Your pre-order sounds a lot like our reservation.

What was even more interesting to me, is that the car seems to have an ordinaray key after all:)
Five ways to get in:
  1. Key Fob in your pocket
  2. Button on Key Fob
  3. Code on door
  4. Phone-as-Key tech (uses Bluetooth and you keep your phone in your pocket)
  5. Through phone app using the 4G modem of the car.

Four ways to start:
  1. Key Fob in your pocket (Maybe it will have a remote start button, don't know yet)
  2. Code on screen
  3. Phone-as-Key tech (uses Bluetooth and you keep your phone in your pocket)
  4. Most likely can remote start the car through the app using the 4G modem.

Memorize this list. There will be a test later. Seriously @zhackwyatt , thanks for summarizing it.

First video I've seen confirming the cargo floorboard can actually be raised/lowered. Nice.

I see that it has a repair kit. I don't remember seeing that listed anywhere in the specs.
