I‘m wondering what a “foot-activated liftgate” actually means and what “includes power liftgate functionality” means as different? I’d like hands free on the hatch but is the foot activated a manual release only or does it automatically raise and lower? Or to get that would I have to add a power option? I’m a first time EV owner once I get my First Edition and I’ve heard that all the little power bells and whistles (that I want lol) eat away at range. Can anyone offer insight? Thx!

You are in luck, it is a power liftgate. But you can always close it manually.

It's the same rear lift gate I have on my Escape. You wave your foot under the bumper, and the hatch magically opens or closes if already open.

Foot activated means that you can open the tailgate by moving your foot under the bumper if you have your key with you
