So it seems that Ford is starting roadshows to allow prospective buyers a chance to see the Mach E in person. How is the information being advertised? Is Ford sending out communication from the headquarters or are the dealers sending out information to their existing customers or newspaper ad?

I think its the individual dealers sending information out. But that is doable as it is only a 3hrs drive. LOL im in San Diego not sure I will want to drive up to LA just to see it then drive another 3hrs back. Might just wait and see if it comes down south or just wait until next year when dealers have them in show room.

Galpin is sending out emails about it. If you had ordered the car and taken your reservation email to the LA car show then they allowed you to sit in the car. The one at Galpin is the same one form the auto show. It is a non production car meaning that it did not come off of the production line,. As such you cannot take pictures of the inside. The outside yes but not the inside. This allows Ford to change the inside prior to delivery if they want to. Doubtful but that is the story I was told by the production team at the car show. The model that is at galpin is the first edition. I only know this because it is has the red calipers which is only offered on the first editions in order to separate it form the rest.

They didn’t even take it out of the trailer?! I’m debating whether to go see it at South Bay Ford. Not sure if it’s even worth going if they leave it in the trailer.

It’s the LA Auto Show car. No real interior. It is designed to be used with a virtual headset rig so different interiors can be be viewed tested and reviewed. No real way to do that in a generic viewing experience in a dealer’s parking lot. The interior is n not finalized.
so are you saying the LA auto show car’s interior didn’t look like the interior shots we have been seeing from press viewing’s?

That last graphic showing the different trims has the first edition and the GT picture mixed up. The GT grille is on the first edition picture.

the GT that they had at the LA Auto Show has an interior. They were letting people that had reservation sit in it. I just hadn’t made my reservation yet....

Have friends down in the LA area and they do not rate Galpin highly at all. A huge dealer so gets masses of allocation so all about just pushing product so doubt the average sales staff have much knowledge beyond the basics, they are also a huge fan of ADM :(

There are plenty of pictures and videos of the LA show car and people sitting in it, the interior is however not the same as the black with copper inserts that you see on the ford website. The LA show car has a white stitching the front seats are also different, the head read rest is fixed and the shoulder bolsters are also different.

As the GT is well over a year away we don't yet know the full set of options yet, so it may even come with a couple of seat options. The current specs for seats have ActiveX & Perforated Active X (with the copper) so it is possible the actual final seats have not be determined yet for the GT maybe there will be a different one as on option in performance variant of the GT or if you opt for Active X vs Perforated Active X

I sat in it at the LA auto show. It is a REAL car but not a production one. The interior is awesome. without the engine and tunnel it has a ton of room. This one is a GT but it has both the red calipers of the first edition as well as the grabber blue of the first edition. In short it is the best of both models
