Sweet! Hopefully it will work well from the get-go. Not being sarcastic, just being a realistic early adopter.

Yep. Witness the FordPass app. Doesn't instill a lot of early confidence.

Remember that For hasn’t rolled out the entire Ford Pass app. I recommending withholding judgement until we see the whole thing.
Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing (knowing that this is what we're seeing with the simpler parts, and the more complicated stuff is yet to be added). 🤓

I was, but that actually brings up another question... do we really need an account set up for some retail chargers if we're just swiping/tapping a credit card? I would think if paying "at the pump" so to speak (via credit card swipe/tap), then we wouldn't need an account.

Or do some retail chargers not have credit card readers (and thus require pre-registration)?
I think the later is the right thing , not all suppliers have credit card readers.

Except some chargers require you to futz with an app, register an account, etc that you may not have installed at the time of wanting to use said charger.

Not sure how EA is, but a lot of different networks out there.
If you use the EA app it’s very automatic.

Hmm, the rate is $.43/kwh which is the non-preferred rate. May not mean anything as he may not have Fordpass on that car. It would be nice to find out if you get the regular rate or the member+ rate ($31/kwh) with Fordpass.

Sounds about right, if he's been driving interstate for most of that. 70 MPH speed limit in that area. 238 / 270 range = 12% 70 MPH loss. That's about what I would expect.
If the dash map was showing where he'd been, then that was also a net elevation gain going west and up into Pennsylvania from the east coast like that.

And lots of mountains. Yes, you regain a lot in the downhills and braking but probably only 60-70% so lots of elevation changes will result in at least another 30% range loss even with a net zero elevation change.

The map shows a very circuitous route, not an interstate. Says he was driving in the mountains which will take it's toll on range as it would on mpg in an ICE.

What was the temp at the time, likely cool in November in the mountains.
