1.) I’d love to get an idea of the seating height. The ground clearance is 5.7 inches which is comparable to a Sedan. However I believe the Mach E is a bit taller than a sedan. Will the seats be on risers, like the Model Y, giving it more of a crossover feel when sitting? Or will the seat height be similar to that of Sedan, meaning this will feel more like a wagon/hatchback?

2.) I’d love to know if any of the Ford reps at the show could shed any light on the GT being available in Grabber Blue (Website says its First Edition only, but reveal and website pictures show a Grabber Blue GT).

3.) If its demo-able, I’d love to hear some early impressions of the sound system.

1.) Since we know the tech has been tested in winter, can you find what the affect cold has on the car's range once temperatures get below 40 degrees F.

2.) In the winter test video, did the car need winter tires to get the handling shown?

3.) Did they test both RWD and AWD models in the snow and cold and what was the results?

I live southeast of Lake Ontario and we get Lake Effect Snow storms so I am very interested if I will need to invest in snow tires. Thank you!

Not sure if they will answer this as it has to do with the finance part of it but I want to know if they have announced that the car will be for lease as well as for purchase.

Any “sentry mode” type of feature similar to Tesla. Does it share the same wheel back spacing and bolt pattern with the mustang coupe?

Automotive News Europe says that the hardware necessary for future self-driving capability, similar to Cadillac's Super Cruise, will be installed on the Premium and GT models. What about the First Edition?

When will we be able to amend our selections for interior and other extras as they appear in the reservation. I have changed my mind on the interior color.

When they open up the ordering banks next Spring, then you will be able to tweak your build. By then the official EPA mileage ratings will be out (crossing my fingers, Ford's estimates hold!) and who knows what options Ford might add by then, too.

To add to this question, will they factor in the tax credit into the leased amount (tax credit goes to the manufacturer when you lease)? Tesla will subtract the value of the tax credit from the leased amount (reducing your payment). I believe some manufacturers essentially make you forego the tax credit value if you lease.
