yes, I was being facetious. I thought the reference to a "reality" TV "star" was a hint to that. I agree a lower point of entry is useful.Regardless of how much you’re carrying, many people obviously buy cars like this for their added cargo carrying ability. So a lower liftover is helpful.
And even just the regular beeps from the sensors (which I assume the MME has) pretty well ensure you're not gonna back into something. My 8yo Escapes have those are they're great.Obviously it will depend on if the sensors see the object, but this looks good.
I see that the Mach-E tailgate is taller and takes part of thr rear glass, just like other CUVs. Does the Model Y tailgate take up part of the glass, or is that glass roof one solid piece and the tailgate is small, like a regular trunk door?I think the Y wins on the worse liftgate design. The Y hatch becomes part of the bumper. The MME is slightly higher.
It takes up part of he glass too. If you look close you can see the seam line in that picture.I see that the Mach-E tailgate is taller and takes part of thr rear glass, just like other CUVs.

If you do have to fix that rear hatch panel, here's some news: it's plastic.It looks like from this link: https://insideevs.com/news/434262/m...HH1wk6k1RUVyjCcFojByEfdfTITFDm-giuX5EsPq_uIF0 That the rear hatch panel is going to be "banged" as soon as the rear bumper is if one is not careful? See the link for details and questions.

I didn't realize how common that has now become until I googled it:
Nissan Rogue, Accura RDX, Jeep Cherokee, and who knows who else.
Not only is this much lighter for the electric assist, it also aids the embedded radar sensors as they don't need special ports.
Don't plan to put any magnetic stickers on the back of your e-Pony.
Ah yes, so many details lost amongst the dogs and cats. We now have confirmation on that one.Scroll way back before the dog and cat photos: https://www.macheforum.com/site/thr...engineering-friends-in-mexico.1100/post-23825
Except that, in many states, an accident is an accident as far as the insurer is concerned.If you get rear ended then it is not your fault so shouldn't have too much impact on your insurance. If you reverse into something and damage the lift gate as well, then sorry but that is YOUR fault and I have no sympathy. If you are unsure of your surroundings, even if you rely on the reversing camera and sensors, then my advice is to get out and look before attempting any manoeuvre
