I ordered a lightning in Southern Colorado. Sometimes it gets reeeeaaallll cold. I guess we'll see what happens.The Mach-E is exceeding the stated range, as long as it's not cold. All the other MFR's overstate the range. But heading into cold season there's going to be a lot of angry customers who don't know their range will drop up to 40%.
It's just going to lose 40% of its range. Everything else should be fine.
It helps if you pre-heat the battery pack while it's still plugged in. The Mach E had a feature that allowed you to pre-program your typical commute start time and it would optimize the battery pack temp and cabin climate while still plugged into grid power.
Great review Sid. I enjoyed reading and fair and honest assessment of the Mache. While it's something I would never own I can see how it would be a good fit for some people.
Though I will say comparing the Mache's steering feel to a 997 Porsche is a bit of a faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar stretch. I will take your word is has a great feel to it.
I got the call from the dealer on Sat and picked up my GT Performance Edition. It's a blast to drive with all that instant torque and AWD. Blew the doors off some Porsche to pop it's cherry. Oh, and the magna ride suspension is very nice. It's going to make a fine commuter/beater.
I got $14k on trade in on my Focus EV, which is $3500 less than the net of what I paid for it four years ago. It had been hit and wasn't perfect, so I was happy to wave goodbye to that shit box.
It's a little heavy. I'd call it medium LOL. It's not light and precise like my GT350, but it's not my F250 either. I'm not going to think twice about it. It handles very well and you can stab the throttle mid corner and it just launches out.
