    Mach-E review from Model 3 SR+ owner...

    M3 SR+ should be a good choice if you don't insist on a crossover vehicle style. Extra $$ should be helpful if you plan to get anything for your car like installing a charger at home or a PPF (Xpel, for example) on the car. If I were in Canada, PPF would be a must do thing for any my vehicle...

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    Whiners? Look at real whiners at the MachEForum website who complain about access to the 12 V battery in order to get update an OTA-unupdatable module to make sound in the car work again. Don't they understand that is a supper minor issue compared to HUGE panel gaps on every Tesla?

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    I tend to be skeptical. If you can reproduce conditions similar to EVDave's video (starting at ~4:45min) and basically disprove my skepticism, I promise to sign up for a Mach-E test drive.

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    You wish that the name is the biggest problem... I watched a review that basically demonstrates that Co-Pilot 360 is dangerous, and we know that Co-Pilot doesn't work on curved roads at all, so I'm not sure if "actually works really well".

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    Let me speculate a bit based on my own experience .... I'd say that 40-50% range decrease may happen when going 80 mph against wind in subzero temps, or driving through a storm with a lot of rain in near-freezing temps. Very careful highway driving (<=65mph at 70F) = -10% realistically, normal...

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    I think if you look for a Camaro 2SS replacement and find LR barely similar then I'd go with a performance version if I can. Remember that a good part of 10k price difference are the wheels. Personally, I am not a big fan of super sporty cars and my LR is our family go places car. For true...

    Mercedes EQS Sedan: Rival to Tesla Model S

    Expensive toy coming right on time for another round of the rise of income inequality. The EQS looks as a culmination excess. 1) Excess in interface. Where is what? Do I now need a manual and a tutorial course to control all butt hugging instruments in this car? 2) Excess in technology...

    And Lowell opened in the middle of last year (summer, I believe)! I thought that Ozark opened in winter, but thanks for correction.

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    If you tried OKC to Little Rock before this year, I guess you'd be surprised by a 340 miles stretch of I-40 without any supercharger.

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    I am sorry if I unintentionally invoked painful memories of Florida locals of driving central Florida roads. I have never been there, and that was just a suggestion based on the fastest route according to Google. 😳 Well, but you know better. To be specific, and to explain why someone may want...

    Right, but not everyone was publishing anti-Semitic books and praised personally by Hitler.

    I don't think it is hatred, it is an outrage that the history has been whitewashed conveniently for a big corporation.

    PR problem of GM's PR.

    I think we can already conclude that Elon was right dissolving the PR department and running no ads for Tesla. https://www.cnn.com/2021/04/08/media/diddy-general-motors-gm/index.html

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    ID.3? Of course I enjoy the downfall of the Mach-E because their multi-billion PR department spew tons of *sugar* in general Tesla direction wasting money that could be spend on better engineering. ... and because Ford is the company run by the family of an anti-Semite.

    It's suddenly everywhere. I have tried to alert Zach Shahan of CleanTechnica about this over a month ago, he apparently dropped the ball. Now, he will be just re-reporting Verge, et. al. stories.

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    I would also add that Ford is the same company that has been founded by an infamous anti-Semite praised by Adolf Hitler. They haven't changed the name, and the same family is still in charge. This company should be nationalized and sold before it become a bankwupt soon.

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    No one until one does. The Mach-E is a small volume compliance EV built on extended Ford Focus/Escape platform likely at significant loss to Ford. The goals were (1) increase the stock price to borrow money to cover Ford's debts and (2) Compromise EVs to lobby against mandated fuel economy and...

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    Jeez, that was MY original thought about the Mach-E that Ford is trying to design and then market it as a complete failure of EVs. Like, look we made a car that is better than Tesla and there is still no demand! People don't like our very best EVs!

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    Of course, as most of us discussion board warriors, I had no personal experience with most vehicles I am talking about. If you have a Taycan or have been driving and charging it for an extended period of time, I would be happy to hear your opinion. Until then, I will be used publicly available...

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    There are several Mach-E specific EA connectivity problems. 1) Not starting to charge automatically as promised. 2) Failing to start charging at all. 3) Failing the charging session soon after starting. 4) Plus Ford's exclusive 11-12kW maximum charging rate above 80% SOC (unrelated to EA). I...

    Mach-E road trip becomes a charging fiasco...

    On my last road trip I charged to nearly 100% several times (in less than 60 minutes) because I was going on routes not covered by the Superchargers (other chargers, cities, villages, humans generally) for over 200 miles. If I travel in the Mach-E, I would spend a few more hours charging (and I...

    Mach-E review from Model 3 SR+ owner...

    The Charging articles report on the Audi E-Tron outperforming Tesla in charging ... by percentage charged ... when Tesla is connected to a non-supercharger ... yeh, Tesla fails. ... but, sincerely, E-Tron seems to be the only really-well-charging vehicle after Tesla.

    Blog Tesla Posts Record Q1 Production

    Yes, and I think the hesitance of Tesla to call target sales numbers is because of (1) they don't know how high above 1 million they might go and (2) they won't freak out other car manufacturers too soon. 1 million vehicles is a big enough number to start making serious dent in sales of other...

    MACH-E: The Best EV You've Ever Pushed

    MACH-E: The Best EV You've Ever Pushed

    Huh? The only two places I use J1772 are a parking garage and a city park with free chargers. If you are traveling, unless you refer to local around-town travel as "travel a bit", you use Superchargers. period. full stop. Superchargers, I said. Not J1772 or anything else. Read my lips, s u...

    MACH-E: The Best EV You've Ever Pushed

    If you think about it, it makes sense. Different people may use different 240V outlets (not necessarily 14-50) and will need different adapters. I've ordered the adapter (was $35 back then) 2 weeks before taking delivery of the car.

    MACH-E: The Best EV You've Ever Pushed

    Anything about Volt (?) in my "theory"? And no, Tesla is not coming with a charger at all. It is not a charger at all until you find where to plug it in and provide a continuous flow of electrons.

    MACH-E: The Best EV You've Ever Pushed

    The included Tesla charger is L2. It only needs a customizable adapter (for $35). You could say that the Tesla L2 adapter comes without an an appropriate adapter without getting angry at facts.

    edmunds range ratings

    It's interesting that sometimes I am still achieving the Tesla rated range, which is apparently now is longer than the actual measured EPA range. It will take quite some time, I guess, for other EV manufacturers, to approach the efficiency of the current Tesla vehicles.

    Tesla branded tire repair kit?

    I always have a little pump and a sealant kit in my car, but it's not a Tesla branded one. I'd give about 80% chance that the tire repair kit won't work, and I carry it for another 20%. If you go to remote places where Tesla service won't serve and you worry about flat tires then I suggest you...

    Lexus EV reveal

    We hear this every year over many years now. For real change, the old OEMs must go after their own gasoline vehicles, not against Tesla. The main question asked should be what model does this EV replace? IS? ES? GS? LS?
