I watched the (goofy) rollout and I’ve read your article and I’m pretty stoked.
The timing is perfect for me - I turn in the Audi A8 Christmas 2020. And I like the tesla-like features. Ford is far from new to EVs. And the price is nice.
So, should I reserve one??? Never mind - just reserved the Launch Edition!! Reservation 9643!
This is my checklist for any future vehicle. Most important is adaptive cruise control and Carplay/Android Auto. Does the Mach-E support those? (Oh yes! And it supports wireless Carplay and wireless phone charging! Sold!)
All electric with support for CCS fast charging
Adaptive cruise control /lane keeping
Android auto/Car play
Auto seat settings by key fob
Full stop regenerative braking
Collision warning/auto stop
Cameras - including top down view
I love the OTA updates and the frunk. Frankly it looks a lot like my beloved Model X without the Tesla baggage. And it sounds like if I plunk for the “First Edition” I’ll get some form of autonomy eventually (as I said, I just want adaptive cruise and the Ford Co-Pilot sounds like everything I’m looking for).
What say you Sam?
