  1. I think your putting too much faith in humans...not to mention the car in the Jalopnic video looked like it was a camo'd test car...and these cars aren't exactly what is indicative of what end result is.
  2. Any news comment section is a dumpster fire of spam bots and idiots that can post anything. I'd take zero credence from them.
  3. I think Cali's issues aren't exactly power generation, but maintenance of the areas around the power lines-i.e. cutting trees down around power lines and stuff like that.
  4. Why would a battery powered car (that doesn't need cooling from the front) and is a taller vehicle look like a Mustang? It looks like a Mustang CUV that is battery powered! https://jalopnik.com/lets-take-a-deeper-look-at-the-design-of-the-2021-ford-1839924916
  5. Your using what is basically the trash dump (comment sections of news articles) of of the internet to prove your point? Seriously? Talk is cheap-but from what I've seen, lots of people are interested in it once you filter out the noise from idiots/snowflakes/whatever about attaching the name to a BEV-when the vast majority of them wouldn't be able to afford it in the first place.
  6. From the comments: Perhaps they’re saving the Stampede driving mode for Cars and Coffee exits only...

  8. But in January of the same year-they where saying this: https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ford/2017/01/03/here-details-fords-electric-vehicle-plan/96109758/ An all-new fully electric small SUV, coming by 2020, engineered to deliver an estimated range of at least 300 miles, to be built at the Flat Rock plant and sold in North America, Europe and Asia.-Mustang Mach E An autonomous vehicle designed for commercial ride hailing or ride sharing, starting in North America. The hybrid vehicle will debut in 2021 and will be built at the Flat Rock plant.-Who knows A hybrid version of the F-150 pickup available by 2020, sold in North America and the Middle East and built at Ford’s Dearborn Truck Plant. A hybrid version of the iconic Mustang will be built at the Flat Rock Plant. It will debut in 2020 and will be available in North America to start. A Transit Custom plug-in hybrid van available in 2019 in Europe. Two new, pursuit-rated hybrid police vehicles. One of the two new hybrid police vehicles will be built in Chicago-new Explorer
  9. Keep in mind that the load for HVAC at night isn't as much as it is during the day-its very rare that the air temp at 11PM is 85 degrees or higher (at least where I live) vs the day time when it can go over 100 in extreme circumstances. Power Companies have other routes they can take to help with power consumption overall-I remember about 15-20 years ago them going around and helping small business swap out lighting for more efficient types
  10. Pulled this off the PDF for the MME Wheelbase 117 Overall length 186 Overall width 74 Overall height 63 Track width, front 64 Track width, rear 64 Ride height 5.7 Turn circle 38.1 ft. So its roughly the size of an Edge, being about 2 inches narrower, its pretty decently sized. Back in 2017, the MME was rumored to be built at Flat Rock-but thats changed and so far Ford hasn't say anything about were its actually being built-yet.
  11. If the demand is there, Ford will build more...

  13. https://www.cars.com/articles/wireless-apple-carplay-and-android-auto-where-are-they-now-407297/ https://www.crutchfield.com/learn/what-is-apple-carplay.html https://www.macrumors.com/2019/10/30/ford-wireless-carplay-sync-4-2020/ It needs both-Wifi and Bluetooth.
  14. I'm assuming Wireless Carplay is just a WiFi connection vs bluetooth. The reason that you couldn't use CarPlay wirelessly is because Bluetooth is bandwidth limited (i.e. can't support data follow needed) to support CarPlay and you need a cable for it. Only other thing I can think of is that it uses some sort of signal with a wireless charger-but those wireless charger things can be affected by cases and other things.
