The Mach E GT will be my first EV in a long, long list of cars I've owned. I'm excited.

Own my Model S for 7+ years. This is Tesla first model and is time to come out with a new model with better interior. Not much complaint against Tesla, very fun to drive. I like to own a compact e-crossover but don't like the Y. Crossovers to consider other than Mach E are Ariya and Q4 e-tron.

I was number 1,112 to put $5000 down on the original Model S in 2009. Car did not actually arrive until 2013! Drove for 2 years and traded-in on a second Model S with more advanced hardware. Drove for 2 years and sold to buy Model 3 with more advanced hardware. Have had Model 3 for 2 years and selling for Mach E. Hoping quality is better than Tesla and AutoPilot is more reliable. . .

Mach-e GT on order - daughter drives Ford Focus Titanium

I have never owned an EV - although my wife drove a Toyota Highlander Hybrid - I have now been to two tour visits in No Cal. Really like the look and feed of the car - in all honestly I'm wondering how I'll like driving the Mach-e. Will I miss the shifting and the sounds? Hoping not. I ordered my GT (now Dark Matter Gray) - on 11/28/19. Looking forward to the time we can test drive the car.

First timer for a BEV, but eased in with a 2014 Fusion hybrid with currently 125k miles. My concern has always been battery degradation over time, but have seen nothing with the Fusion so feel confident the tech has advanced enough to meet my driving needs (75-100 miles per day). Few long trips but as I'm nearing retirement, looking forward to casual long trips that we can match up charging needs with craft breweries, distilleries and other places that we need an excuse to stop and visit.

2 Previous PHEVs, 1 EV (compliance car- with less than ½ the range of the MME.)

The 5 year old BEV has almost 40k miles and the battery is still giving us the expected range (I'm assuming it may have degraded less than 3%.) This is with above 70º f temps however (San Jose to Monterey.)

First one. And it’s my only car. And some buddies and I are doing a road trip to St. Michael’s in May. Jumping in with both feet.

I’d had 2 PHEV and an EV:
  • 1st Gen Volt
  • BMW i3
  • 2nd Gen Volt
The Volt is a great car, I just sold to get my Mach-E and I couldn’t be happier!
