MachE weekend test drive

Took it to a charger and it worked, kind of.

    Update: Found On Road Deadbattery
  • edited March 14
    Alex on Autos does a great review and comparison between MachE and VWID4.

    The MachE does the PlugNCharge just like Tesla and that is coming to VW shortly.

    MachE is more a Model Y comparable car vs. a Model 3.
  • Glad it worked for him. We weren't able to charge on FPL's Evolution Chargers. 🙄
  • But the MachE doesn’t have the range of a Y and it weighs significantly more than a Y which is likely why it’s range is significantly less.

    No problem charging at home.
  • The tester loves the car, hates that he can’t travel with it because of an unreliable charging “network.” I think we saw this from a mile away. It’s the bugaboo of every non Tesla so far.

    MachE real world range is actually a bit higher than Model Y real world but very close. As Alex noted on his MachE LR AWD rated 270 miles, he was getting 290 miles and from regular daily driving.

    Alex wanted wider tires on the MachE and that would likely take about 10 miles of range upgrading the tires.

    On the charging, MachE just a bit faster at 92kW average speed vs. Tesla's 86kW.
  • @RUSirius: And it has a bigger battery than a Tesla and a shorter range. Point: Even with the faster charging rate, you have to charge a bigger battery (more time), and one gets less range.
    As far as range estimates go: Over the years, I've had very good luck with the EPA numbers with their testing regime. And that includes with the Tesla.
    On any car one cares to mention, it's possible to hypermile the car to a greater or lesser extent. Don't accelerate as hard? More gradual slow-downs? Somebody with a light foot? High speeds not quite the same?
    Then one is not comparing apples and apples, one is comparing apples and oranges. If you want to do a self-organized different testing regime, it only makes sense if one runs both the Ford _and_ the Tesla through the _same_ regime. Then come talk to me about, "Well, it looks like it has the same range as a Y". Until then, it's advertising hot air.

    Alex on Autos has done a very good job with his real world range tests and controlling for temp and other environmental factors.

    Not true, lots of side by side range drives on YouTube. Last one was a MachE vs a Y.

  • Better late than never, but if it’s a coin toss between Tesla and Ford, remember your history.

    No kidding. And there's a lot to remember.

    1. Ford has Blind Spot Alert, Tesla does not.
    2. Ford has full time Lane Keeping Alert, Tesla does not.
    3. Ford has working adaptive cruise, Tesla's is Beta and has phantom braking +
    4. Ford has Rear Cross Traffic alert, Tesla does not
    5. Ford has 360 View, Tesla does not.
    6. Ford has inline screen, Tesla does not.
    7. Ford has wiper on rear hatch Tesla does not.
    8. Ford has auto rear auto braking, Tesla does not.
    9. Ford has dedicated essential controls
    10. Ford has service dealers all over and you can call and talk to people.
  • Ford has dealers, the most hated form of commerce ever developed.
  • But back on topic.

    OK.

    "All numbers point that the Ford Mustang Mach-E is in high demand right now. Last year, the automaker said it received about 50,000 reservations and now, production and deliveries are underway. In February, Ford managed to deliver more than 3,700 examples in the United States alone. You know what this means - when demand exceeds supply, prices tend to rise.

    Here’s what happens. As our colleagues at InsideEVs reported back in June last year, some Ford dealers are adding up to $15,000 over the electric crossover’s MSRP. The markups vary widely depending on the dealer but in most cases, they are at least about $5,000. There are some dealers that like to play it fair, though some want to capitalize on the high demand for the Mustang Mach-E."

  • This thread is about no place to reliably charge a MachE on a trip. All else is noise.

    Gee...all the EV media testers had no issues finding places to charge their MachE's or any other EV's.

    Here's just Electrify America's network which rivals Tesla's. They just put in four in Astoria, OR as part of the Phase II plan that covers Northern Pacific coast.

    https://www.electrifyamerica.com/locate-charger/

    And they've shown how easy it is to charge the MachE with the EA/Ford PlugNCharge.

    Just can’t stop lying can you.

  • RUSirius,

    If you think the Mach E is so great, then why did you get banned from the Mach E forum? Different narratives for different forums?
  • Wow, the Fast Lane video comparison of MachE vs Y was devastating. Took three tries at different chargers to get any charge and only got 39 kW on the “150 kW” charger. Like I said, not a road car.
  • Final verdict from TFL

    “Electrify America and other networks are not working.”
  • Reminder @RUSirius (aka FishEV) is a paid troll of the Chinese government. He is here only to derail any conversation and bash anything American. On Tesla forums he bashes Tesla and on Ford forums he bashes Ford (he got banned by Ford) Tesla just decided to close down the entire forum because of him.

    PS. If you read what he writes closely, you can tell he uses google translate...
