I'm surprised by the seat adjustments, which model were these because Premium should have 8-way power seats. Curious what 8-way is if they don't tilt?
The seats definitely did not have independent tilting. Just up and down. Though tilting did change with height.

These cars were built in July. The final production cars might be different.

Not sure what this is for. But there was this removable plastic panel on both sides.

headlight access for bulb replacement? Doesn't seem likely with LED headlights. What else could it be?

Looks like it's access for the headlight alignment screw

That makes a lot more sense now!

Any idea how to tell where the Ford reps are going to be?
I’m going to assume it is at the bigger dealers, but the sample size from NJ was 2... Fullerton in Somerville and All American in Old Bridge

Well there’s our official consumption numbers boys. Do we have any way of knowing where the stops of these cars were previously that sums up those 500 odd miles? Can’t say it’s what I’d hoped... 263mi...
@dbsb3233 @ChasingCoral what do you think? This gives 265mi based on almost 600mi of trip data. Granted it’s got a lot of accessory and probably some stationary climate usage, but idk where it would have driven before arriving at RI based on prior trip stops and what those legs imply on the range. Can’t say the 3.0mi/kWh is encouraging though.

If you look at the driving score, it seems like it wasn't driven very efficiently.

The reps have been having a little fun per my conversation with them. Wouldn't you?

Is that how that works? 100% is ideally efficient and 0% is just driving it as horrible as possible?

You wouldn't extrapolate ICE mileage at only 600 miles, and these are pre production models being used for marketing purposes rather than regular driving.

Even so, if "real world" range is 265 against an EPA rating of 270, that would actually be remarkably good compared to what we're seeing with real world range tests.

That looks too cheap. Ford must install better battery terminals instead, so the jumper clamps can grab on to.

@PBog what does your confirmation email say? I thought the last slot was 5:00-6:00. I could be wrong. My appointment was much earlier.

I don't think any of the your stops (at least in New England) have 6pm slots.

My husband set this all up..... So after you asked this, I asked my husband to show me the email confirmation. Guess who is now in the dog house! He said he could choose either 5 or 6... so he chose 6, but didn’t bother to read the confirmation saying the slot was 5-6. My disappointment and anger is directed to the wrong person/people! Lol.... lets see how long It will take him to get back into my good graces.
