    Battery Pack Sizes: How did the efficiency between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 change so much?

    I forget which (maybe OOS), but in one of the videos on Gen 2 there was mention that the new 22’s were lighter. But yeah, all speculation at this point. Will be curious what you can learn tomorrow and to see efficiency tests once there are more deliveries.

    Battery Pack Sizes: How did the efficiency between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 change so much?

    For comparison sake with the Mach-e: 2022 Premium AWD - 277 mi 2022 CA RT1 AWD (only wheels/tires different) - 312 mi An increase of 35 miles (12.6%) just from that.

    Battery Pack Sizes: How did the efficiency between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 change so much?

    Curious about this and been thinking the same. Wheels/tires were the only difference in the Mach-e California Route 1 model to get its range up.

    Heatshield Shades (full set), SUV tent, and other camping accessories - Animal Sanctuary Camping

    Not quite what I was expecting but not nothing - “Honor24” for $5 off a heat shield. Edit: to clarify that’s $5 per window, so essentially 10% off which isn’t bad and cancels out shipping in my case.

    R1S Spare tire hitch mount options?

    I used the master lock to lock the spare tire holder to the swing arm. The Kuat has a lock that is long enough and comes with it, so used that to lock the swing arm to the hitch.

    What location on hood of r1s do cross bars look the best?

    It is wild to me how often I see R1S drivers around town with bare crossbars sitting on top not being used. >50% I’d say.

    Feedback from folks who went from R1T > R1S

    I switched last July, so not a particularly early build R1S. Drives better IMO and prefer the shorter wheelbase and increased maneuverability. The one thing I miss is the gear tunnel - that was awesome to have! edit to add: the driving characteristics changed considerably over the updates last...

    R2 / R3 has heat pump (confirmed by RJ)

    Why? Does it not work as well for larger cars?

    Gear Guard is just about useless.

    Like the idea for low traffic parking spots. But as it stands now there would need to be some sensitivity adjustments available and/or event type detection (impact, theft attempt vs. pedestrian within 3 ft) . If I’m at parking spots where people walk by a lot there is a recording every 20-30...

    Thoughts on R2 options

    He corrected that later in follow up conversations to say that it is 270 miles for the base version.

    R2 efficiency chart shows 3.12 mi/kwh (3.99 average) -- at reveal event

    Not sure we can read much into that. Could have been a mock, or if it was real, we don’t know the config. Single motor RWD, Dual AWD or Triple motor AWD?
