I’ll be driving one for the next couple of days. My experience fast charging so far has mirrored some others - including our first experience last year - where I’m only pulling 75 or so kW of the advertised 150 capability at EA stations. And that’s with the battery more than 50-percent depleted. With Teslas, Supercharging has always just worked, and at mostly high speeds, with the exception of being on the same charger as someone else or the normal slowdown while approaching fuller capacity. This is not unique to the Mustang. It seems hard to pull big speeds on most other CCS cars too - ID.4 a recent example. I’d like to try a non-EA charger and see if there’s a difference. There’s a Harley dealer nearby with CCS.

I’ve had no communication issues with charge stations so far, however. But my sample size is limited.

I mean that handshake time is ridiculous though. 40 seconds to a minute just to authorize and start to charge?

Shit the charge points from 6 years ago were not that slow. That’s just not acceptable.

This seems like a pretty easy fix from a software perspective and frankly will be a non issue if the Biden infrastructure bill passes (probably will). In the bill is massive funding to build out charging infrastructure for EV’s. Right now, I see Tesla’s biggest advantage is their Supercharger network and effectively this legislation will chip away at that.

Shouldn’t have been an issue from the start. It just means they did minimal testing on the vehicle.

Software update yes.... but that update should be out already. Like I’ve said before these companies move way to slow. I don’t even know if there is a tentative fix date for this bug. That’s not good

Come on, like Tesla doesn’t have bugs and didn’t experience growing pains. The fanboyism amongst Tesla owners is worse than Apple.

Not saying that. Big difference is Tesla fixes large software issues like this in a matter of days. Ford will take months if not longer. Like I said I have not seen anything to show they are addressing this anytime soon.

This is a bug that should never have happened. This is something that if they tested this out instead of just making wild charging claims they would have found instantly.

This vehicle was rushed plain and simple like most other EVs instead of vetting these basic issues out.

It shouldn’t take a YouTuber to find out “hey your vehicle doesn’t really charge fast Ford” that’s just embarrassing

There are those who masterbate to hot female co-workers, celebrities or even that Mom with a small child/new born at the doctor’s off...Creepers thread.

Then there are those who masterbate to Elon.

Saw my first Mach E on the road yesterday afternoon.

It going the other way as I turned onto a side road and I could not get my phone out to snap a pic.

no, it was dark blue or black, I can't remember. Had an orange plate on the back. Was here in Yorkville.

Saw on on the North side this past week... taillights really don't fit the styling. Not a fan in general.

I saw a red one a couple weeks ago. I think they look pretty sharp in person.
Also saw a Porsche Taycan the same day and it really looks good in person too. Very sharp car.

I stopped at the local ford dealership today to check one out and I agree. The taillights is the only thing I really don't like. They are clear including the one down low. I would think people will want to tint those a little.
