I test drove a premium AWD today. I really enjoyed it. It drove very well. I'm 6'2" and had plenty of room in the front seat. I did fit in the back seat but I don't think anyone taller would fit. The interior was very nice and the driver's seat very comfortable.

Updates:

That's great to hear!
How did this dealer get a test car when almost everyone is waiting?
Are you planning to order one based on this? Did you already have an order?
I haven't ordered one yet, but probably will. Dealers are getting these demonstration cars. They are not allowed to sell them for 4 months. This was the first dealer in my area to get one.

Would you please expand on "very well"?
It was very quick and had a lot of power. I wouldn't say it drove like a sports car, but it wasn't far from it. I was able to drive it on curvy roads and the interstate. I was going 65 and went to pass a car and it had plenty of power. I
Also, I haul my grandkids a lot so I actually put 3 booster seats on the rear seat. It was tight but they did fit. I wasn't brave enough to order a Mach E without driving it or seeing if I fit, but based on this drive, I probably will.

I've ridden in one but never driven one. Here are my 4 reasons I'm leaning toward a Mach E vs a model Y, which I know is a good car. I really like the body styling of the Mach E. I like having a view screen behind the steering wheel. I like getting a $7500 tax credit. My Ford dealer is 20 minutes away vs 4 hours for Tesla.

Can you elaborate? Not to complain, but that review is only one notch above "fine"
See my expanded answer. Let me know if you have any other questions.

These are exactly the same top four reasons I put a deposit down on a Mach-E last week There are many more minor reasons. The Ford beat out the Toyota Venza and the Genesis GV80 as the car to replace our 2006 Lexus RX350.

Bingo, although my Tesla dealer is quite a bit closer. {Jonathan}

Is this a star white or space white? I feel foolish asking this question, but still please answer.

When do they expect you to receive your car?
