The only problem with getting the MME was that my garage wasn't big enough. Should be now.

In the US there are tax rebates nationally and in some states for installation of charging stations. However, I think your work went a little beyond what they had in mind. ;)

I think I may have misinterpretated the rules. Oops🤣

Got this from Ford UK yesterday in response to a twitter rant

Hey Grahame, how's things? Keep an eye on your inbox as we have another email coming out to you guys very soon with the latest updates on your Mustang Mach-E pre-order.

I'm waiting patiently. Honestly 🤣🤣🤣

It would appear that Ford UK are letting us down. I posted earlier elsewhere on here about a article I found on the web about the content below. A reply to that post gave a more in depth story from Ford in Cologne. I then went onto the Ford.com media site and pulled this up. It was date stamped today from Dunton, Essex.

Upon reading the article it says that Ford showcased Sync 4 for the first time in Europe via an exclusive virtual event. This was presumably what the email that we received 3 weeks ago was about.

Did anyone get an invite. I know I didn't.

Once again we, their customers, get to find out information from this forum and back door routes rather than from Ford themselves. Shocking

Having read the article, on page 4 sub section 2, it clearly states " phone as a key feature NOT available in UK or IRELAND. There you are then

Hey, at least you got the long version of the article. Ours in the US was only 1/4 of the content.

The system employs a machine learning algorithm to better understand drivers’ habits over time. Go to the gym every Friday? Call home on the way back from work? The next-generation SYNC system will learn each owner’s routines to make the right navigation and communication suggestions at the right time, enabling drivers to concentrate on the road.


I am not overly impressed with this function. Have to get rid of my 'bit on the side' after work. Either that or I will have to get a taxi. Could get me into trouble. 🤣 🤣🤣

It would also appear that Engage, Whisper and Unbridled are going to be Active, Whisper and Untamed on our MME's
How bizarre. If they felt they had to translate from English to English it may be amusing to see what they are called in other languages.

Just before the video ends, the presenter reminds the audience that the information presented is to remain under embargo until the fourth of September. I believe he was speaking to an "audience" of journalists, not customers. Further, they had a private Q & A session immediately following that presentation. Again, I believe that was for the journalists.

It may well be that the virtual event that Ford of UK has emailed about is yet to occur.

Some of the UK reviewers were mispronouncing Unbridled so perhaps that had some play in the decision to "translate" the modes.
Are those just sound modes or actual driving modes that are accompanied by different sounds?
I will likely drive in Engage mode most of the time because I like the driving coach features that Ford employs.

Full driving experience modes: acceleration, regeneration, sounds, and lights.

Also, when fully engaged the horse won't walk to the side of the track to relieve itself. It has to be unbridled.
