Which journalist, blogger, YouTuber or publication would you most like to see review the Mustang Mach-E?
On the flip side, who do you NOT want or don't think would be fair to the Mach-E?

My top five reviewers:
1) Bjorn Nyland, YouTube
2) Tom Moloughney, insideevs.com
3) Vicky Parrott, Driving Electric (UK)
4) Jason from Engineering Explained, YouTube
5) Driven by Tom Voelk, New York Times & YouTube

Most unsure about:
Electrek - I have mixed feelings about Fred Lambert and Seth Weintraub. They're super gungho on Tesla and seemed excited about the Mustang Mach-E. I'd love to see them have Micah Toll do a video review as he's done automotive ones in the past for them.

Car & Driver, Motor Trend, or Road & Track will be fine, in my opinion and will be well read by the masses. I've got my subscription to Consumer Reports and of course I'll read their take but it's the EV-specialists that I'm most looking forward to getting their thoughts.

The only review that matters: mine. Only I can judge if I like my vehicle and it suits my needs or not.

Me! On my blog, but only because that means mine has arrived (not that more than about 3 people read my blog).

I want to see reviews from the journos who bow at the feet of Tesla and see how biased/unbiased they are. It's part entertainment. Which ones are those?

Ben Sullins from Teslanomics said he estimated 250-270 miles of range. That was before the EPA range was made official.

@Nak, how many data points do you need before you reevaluate your position that the Porsche Taycan's 201 EPA mile range is correct?

Those guys are fun. The pair at Throttle House also produce really good reviews, especially their head-to-head comparisons.

I think it's pretty clear you can do better than the EPA rating, but I'm still taking these reviews with a pretty big grain of salt. The magazines depend on advertising dollars. This Taycan driver seems to be pretty un-biased to me. Post #575: 68% battery, 150 mile range. That's in California now... The Taycan's own computer is saying it's got a range of 220 miles. One Lap

I got to sit in a Taycan yesterday at the Portland Auto Show. Gorgeous car. More sports car than sports sedan from the feel, even though it's got four doors. The interior is very luxurious and cool in a traditional way. Like the new Vette, it's trying to give a "Fighter aircraft" feel to the cockpit. A lot of people are really going to like the feel. I did not. Having more than a few hours in fighter type aircraft I found the feel too "wanna be". I prefer a cleaner feel and look in a car. That's just me though. One thing that was VERY cool: The haptic response in the touch screens. Not just vibration, somehow Porsche has mimicked the feel of pushing a button with some vibration pattern. You would swear up and down that your finger is pressing a button, and the button moved. I had to look right at it to tell. Even looking at it, my eyes told me there was no movement, my finger said it had just depressed a button. Very, very cool. One negative: the armrest is pretty much useless if you have anything in the cup holder.
