We're not talking about for towing things, we're talking about towing the Mach E. We thought there was a stub in there for attaching a tow hook.
Right, I think there is a tow hook that screws into a similar spot on export vehicles that travel by ship. We looked behind that spot (behind a plastic cover), and it did not jump out at me that there was an interface for such an apparatus as I was trying to understand its use in charging/jumping the 12v battery. Sorry. If I make it to the event in Old Bridge on Thursday I will look harder.

Beware it might interfere with front facing radar. I wanted to do the same thing on my car but the parking sensors didn't like it.
exactly - it looks like there's a sensor right next to that access port

Yep, a tow hook mount is mandatory for EU vehicle, I believe. The hook itself can be removed/installed.

I really would rather not have to mount the regular license plate holder. Not much choice though. I don't really want to give any reasons to be pulled over. #boooooo

I saw the Mach-E at Towne Ford in Redwood City, CA, today. They had Star White and Infinite Blue Mach-Es on display. I have only owned sedans, so I'm probably not the best at judging an SUV entry height. I found it easy to get in and out of the car. The entry height is taller than was I am accustomed. Everything about the car is excellent. All the materials are of high quality and pleasant to the touch. The touch screen is very responsive and logically laid out.

I only took one picture since I would only be posting duplicate photos that are already on the forum. The picture I took is above the driver's mirror. There is what looks like a small button, but it's not a button. It may be part of the ambient light or a sensor. Does anyone have any ideas what this is?
Is t hat the pony lamp projector ? Like welcome light which projects pony to side of the car ?

If your photo is up here by the rearview mirror...I wonder if that is the microphone for the Sync system (so it can hear voice commands and for phone calls etc. ?

That’s a possibility. I hadn’t thought of that.

The mic/mics are most likely inside the black plastic with holes in it. That button may be to disable the auto-dimming feature of the mirror? That's my best guess.
