That shade of blue is definitely better than the other blue (not the grabber) that is currently offered, hopefully that will be an option on this side of the pond.

The Model 3 long Range AWD has a large WLTP range of 544 km. The Tesla Model 3 Performance naturally also has AWD thanks to a dual engine and sprint in 3.5 seconds from 0-100 km / h
Thank you for pointing this out. The article notes that the Mach E has a WLTP range of 600km (or 370 miles).

The Model 3 performance model has an EPA range of 310 miles (vs. 338 European miles). Can we extrapolate that this means if the Mach E AWD extended range car could have an EPA range of 330-340 miles if we similarly deducted the difference of range of WLTP to EPA? If so, then this may be positive information for Ford and its prospective Mach E owners.

That is what I'm thinking, if it gets 330 miles EPA it will change the game, and if the GT gets 280 miles man what a great buy. The 75kwh would go up to 260 miles also.

I definitely agree. I have said in the past that I suspect Ford is being very conservative. This may especially be true if they spent 2 years with focus groups, tearing down Tesla cars and going to the hits and misses with fine tooth comb. Why go through all of that trouble and investment of resources to come out with a product that comes up short with its best competition. I am so happy I took my chance with reserving a First Edition. Hopefully, they are on top of the production, logistics and delivery schedules.

It would be surprising if the two additional colors end up being Grabber and Satin Blue. I’d expect the two options to be more distinct. So, unless Ford changes its mind regarding Grabber Blue being one of the two colors, I’m afraid that this won’t be the second color.
But, I sure hope it is (or that it replaces Grabber Blue). I would change my plans for a GB GT for a GT in this color in a heartbeat.
I’d love to get this color but satin is so hard to take care of. I’m really dying for a decent blue on this car though.

I’m in the same boat. Satin is not a finish I’d want but I’m desperate for a blue I like more than the grabber or the infinite. Ford has some great blues, like the performance blue, that I would love on the Mach E.

Dude, there's not much chance Fisker will actually come out with the Ocean. The numbers just don't make sense for the subscription or purchase price. It's a beautiful vehicle and it deserves to be made, I just don't think Fisker can do it.

As for the satin blue, yes please.

Loving this satin blue!! Looks like a matte paint job with the lack of gloss...

Wow that's a pretty phenomenal color. I'd definitely spring for that over grabber blue!

I really like the satin blue, but it really calls attention to the gloss black wheel arches which in my opinion doesn't go well with satin blue.
