Yeah the FFE is/was always really good with A/C keeping things nice and cool.He didnt do the PHEV training wheel program like I did. He went straight from ICE to BEV. It has been about 3 months now since he bought his M3. The day he gave me a ride it was about 105 out and the A/C struggled to keep the cabin at a comfortable temp for me. My FFE does a much better job by comparison. Today's high was 117 and very comfortable inside the car with climate control set at 74 degrees. Doesnt use much power either. The weekend before I converted my order, my wife and I test drove a Model Y and the A/C was not as effective as we hoped so that was the final straw that tipped us towards the Mach E since we both know the A/C is going to perform well in AZ.
The Bolt also does a pretty good job without consuming much extra battery.
In both cases driving around on a really hot day doesn't impact your range much (looks like you're averaging about 320 Wh/mile in this display or just above 3 miles/kWh--that seems a bit high for a FFE).
