I have been on the waiting list for 15 years since my son was 3 and offered a season ticket this season just as he goes to uni in Bristol 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️. Can always get a ticket as a member but not rushing back until this idiot goes.
Back on subject these reviews are really helpful and great to see them on uk roads. Got me excited for my test drive Saturday! Quick question to those who have had a test drive are they allowing passengers ie. 18 Yr old son?

When I booked (last week) I was told up to four people, and anyone wishing to drive must produce a full driving license and national insurance

Evans Halshaw had a minimum age of 28 to drive, not sure if that was set by them or Ford. Luckily my birthday was last month and I just scraped in...

Awaiting: Iconic Silver ER RWD

Had my test drive today. One whole hour in a RWD ER in Absolute Black. What a motor!

The black is gorgeous (still happy with my choice of Iconic Silver though).

What can I say that hasn’t already been said?

Ambient Lighting - This was present on the AWD ER in the showroom but, sadly, not on my tester.

Sitting position - you do sit high up and it gives the feel of an SUV. I felt higher up than most other cars around me.

Build quality is excellent. Feels very classy. The panoramic roof is great! I also really liked the grey alloys.

Acceleration was way beyond my expectations.

Plenty of admiring looks.

One pedal driving took a few minutes to get used to but, once I did, I had it on all the time. Very impressive.

I’m so glad I got the chance to drive the car and am 100% convinced this is the best EV currently on the market.

Can’t wait for mine to arrive now, however, it’s slipped a week to 29/05.

Forgot one of the most important snippets.

The Ford representative told me the Mach E is capable of fully autonomous driving.

He also said this will be released as an OTA Update and will be Free Of Charge!

Now, given Ford’s communication history, I’ll take this with a pinch of salt! 😂😂

Thanks for posting and a great review.

Did you go to a different dealership to get that test drive?

The same representative said the same thing to me... I wasn't convinced but he seemed dead set on it being true, "just waiting for the UK government to approve it" were his words.

We'll see!

Thanks for posting and a great review.

That's certainly given me something to think about as we're with the same dealer and wasn't offered this car which is the exact model and colour I'm paying good money for. Instead I'm booked in for a SR version and part of the "tour". If it wasn't for the £3k I'd be thinking of taking my business elsewhere.

Very surprised and disappointed with them.
Hi Steve,

Sorry, it wasn’t with our dealer. I’m booked in for Monday, 19th for that one.

This was Evans Halshaw in Preston who still had a couple of slots left.

They appear to be running their test drives differently (although I don’t know why as they are meant to be ‘Ford Driven’ - Excuse the pun).

They did 1 hour, unaccompanied, drive anywhere you want, test drives.

I was hoping our dealer would do this then I could take it home and try it in the garage. 😂😂

Yeah I realised after I posted that, that it can't have been warrington! Cheers.

As far as I know, we get an hour and it's the SR version.

I think it's unlikely to be free anyway!

I think In the US they have given prices for the update.
