It also has the slowest 0-60 time at sluggish mid-six seconds ;).
I know you're kidding, but that IS pretty slow for a BEV, particularly compared to the Y (4.8). As @JamieGeek pointed out the 2020 bolt is also in the 6.3 second range; it's one thing to get smoked by a Tesla but quite another to get beaten by a Chevy :)

Well you are comparing the single motor RWD Mach E to the Dual Motor AWD Model Y. There will be a slower single motor RWD Model Y available in the future.

The Ford pages state the Route 1 is intended for Southern California and hence heated seats aren't necessary (eliminating options is a way to lower the cost).
True, but in SoCal, we need AC cooled seats :cool: Wearing shorts getting into a hot car with black seats might cook our legs.

I also noted that there was only one CA Rt 1 so far on the list. I am just waiting for my dealer change to be updated so I can confirm the order and there will then be a second Infinite Blue CA Rt 1 on the list!
About an hour ago, I replied to that thread to add my CA Rt 1, Infinite Blue confirmed order. Do we have a trend building here?

Yes, but the operative point was an ER RWD Mach E losing to a BOLT - which not only is a CHEVY* but clearly has no 'aspirations' nor 'soul' to paraphrase Darren Palmer.

As for Y vs Mach E exact comparison of AWD ER you're still talking a significant margin, if the Ford targets are accurate.

* this wouldn't be a proper Ford forum without mentioning a Chevy rivalry

I wouldn't be surprised if the Mach-E 0-60 target times are sandbagged a bit. I'm waiting for the actual numbers to be published instead of 'targeted' times......

Speculating that the 3.5 0-60 for the GT performance time is probably right. But that the 'mid-5 second' time would be closer to 5.2 or 5.3 and the 'mid-6 second' would be 6.2 or 6.3. Ford was able to tweak out more HP so maybe the times will improve as well.

As long as I can beat a Prius and impress girls, I could care less what the 0-to-60 time is.
