I've had a place-holder reservation on a Mach-e for almost a year and have done the same for the ID-4, waiting for reviews and EPA numbers before making a final decision. What interests me most about the ID.4 are the overall appearance and utility, while what interests me most about the Mach-e is the infotainment system. I don't care for how the Mach-e looks, and I am very concerned with the ID.4 infotainment. Wh else here is considering the Mach-e?

I was but not so much now. I’m test driving one on the 9th. I’m not crazy about the looks of it either. I do want to see it in person though. I drove the Model Y last Wednesday. I still have my ID 4 1st Edition reserved, but thinking about changing to an AWD Pro S to buy some time before I make a decision. The good thing is the $500 is fully refundable til the day your pickup your car. I am leaning toward the Y, but I’ve loved the VW since I saw it a couple of years ago. Tough decision!

I also have reservation for Mach-e. There are a lot of unknown at this point. Things always looks good in paper but I'm not gonna bet 40k+ on that. I have to drive the car and see if it meets my needs. End of the day it's a new tool that takes you point A to B.

I also have reserved the Mach-e along with the ID.4. I am also interested in the Nissan Ariya, but no one seems to know when it will be open for reservations. I don't need the car until the spring so I am just waiting to see what happens.

I wasn't impressed with the Mach-E. Looking at the AWD, the cost is almost the same as the ID.4 yet only has a 210 mile range. As we are waiting on the AWD, hoping there is more info on the Ariya before we have to pull the trigger.

I was seriously looking into the Mach E, but as documented in my write-up, ended up dropping it. Other than the Select trim, all models are seriously outside my budget, and the Select trim is a bit underwhelming in my opinion. Then we had some shenanigans by dealers piling on fees, and the long wait. Just not worth my brain cycles.

With nearly 20 different vehicle purchases over four decades, the Passat I purchased two years ago was just my second that did not have a blue oval on it. (Technically two of them were Mercury's) So when the Mach E didn't even cross my mind until weeks after my 1st Edition reservation it's pretty clear my brand loyalty has shifted. Plus the ID.4 looks much better than the Mach E, IMO.

The Mach E is a bit too expensive with the big battery, and I'm not a fan of the slope back. I saw one at the LA Auto show last year, but didn't get to get a good look inside. Interiors sell a car for me more than exteriors because that's where you spend your time while driving it.

I may go take a look at them again when they show up at dealers.

They've been making the rounds to dealers for looking (not driving) for a few weeks now on east and west coasts.

What BS about it I've not reviewed yet
(I'm on my 2nd no $ down FMCredit lease with high credit score)

Here's the link.


Essentially it's not a traditional lease.

How It Works

  • Select the Mustang Mach-E of your choice, based on needs or budget.
  • Provide your down payment (25% of vehicle value max) and your estimated annual mileage needed.
  • Enjoy smaller payments than retail financing and choose from terms of 36 or 48 months.
  • At the end of your term, you can retain your vehicle, renew into a new Ford or Lincoln or return your Mustang Mach-E after settling your account balance.

Kicker here is that in a traditional lease the bank/lender owns the car and the tax credit is applied to the capitalization cost of the car and you can get a reduced monthly rate. With Options the consumer is responsible for application of the tax credit.

Anyway, I don't see this as a positive for the consumer.
