Love that video too. That may be the first live Mach-e I've seen actually moving (even if just from the trailer to the showroom). The Ford commercials with it going over mountain curves look more like fake renderings.

The Rapid Red still has a bit of a mystery to it. Most of the time it looks great, when it comes off as a darker red. But there's some lighting (fluorescent?) where it turns less appealing, almost like there's a slight shade of nail polish pink or something blended in. And looks more flat than metalic. It's weird.

yeah, definitely the lighting plays tricks on the color. I've looked at cars on my dealer's lot that are "rapid red" and when it's darker out it looks like a deeper red and really good. Then in broad daylight it is more of a medium red that isn't as sexy.

@dbsb3233, don't want to get your hopes up in the slightest, but it looks like that 100% charge on the GOM is showing 418 miles.

Red's a tricky color. I have a red Model 3 and that's a nice metallic what I call real red vs. neighbor's tomato soup red Prius. I ordered a white Mach-E but I'd switch to red if it's a "good" red.

Good catch. I see that. That's the 2nd time we've seen a Mach-e with a number on the screen far greater than 300, displaying "xxx mls". I'm still a little puzzled on the "mls". I guess that's miles(?), but I've never seen it shortened to that.

I also wonder if that might be usage-influenced calculation, i.e. based on how the vehicle has been driven (like a trip meter) rather than a fixed fleet average? If so, it could just be reflecting the usage of that vehicle which probably just includes very favorable driving around lots and warehouses and zero high speed. (Just speculation.)
