Have you already seen the Mach E ?
yep. It is red ;)
the pictures posted yesterday are accurate obviously. One of the bigger surprises will be the center stack display/navigation. Also there will be a lot of variants in terms of battery pack and trim levels.
Oh please let there be a performance trim, something sportier than the shots yesterday.
you won't be disappointed
Thanks for sharing. So it sounds like it's not just marketing speak when Ford calls this a performance EV? Give us more morsels!

In the other thread, a second set of doors wasn't visible. A 4 door hatch is technically a 5 door. That's why 4/5 door was said.
You can see the rear door lines just zoom into the high res image.

According to Ford Authority Ford will open reservation books for the vehicle on November 17th – the same day that the EV will be unveiled. The process represents a very different kind of go-to-market approach and process than Ford has taken in years past.

love this idea, provided you aren’t locked into a purchase upon reservation and the deposit is refundable. I think this eliminates the risk of dealers imposing an additional dealer mark-up and removes the pain of hunting for a special color/options/battery combination.

I agree nothing worse than the ever growing dealer ADM

I hope the Mach-e will be at the San Francisco Motor Show. That is much easier for me to get to.

If anyone is going, and can sit in it, I’d love to get an idea of the ride height. The ground clearance is around that of a sedan, but I believe the Mach E is a bit taller. I’m wondering if that means the seats are elevated a little bit to give that crossover feel (I believe they are doing something similar with the Model Y), or if this sits more like a hatchback/wagon.

We were wondering the same thing. We happened to be in LA yesterday and went to the show. By far the biggest crowds were around the Mach E display. We were talking with one of the Ford reps there and discovered that if we showed them our reservation email (Carbonized Gray First Edition) we could get an interior "tour" of the Grabber Blue GT that was on display!

We thought the ride height compared favorably with our 2012 RAV4. We both loved the car inside and out. If Ford can make good on the range and the tech they'll have winner! We came away really jazzed with the car.
