Darren Palmer, Ford's Global Director for Battery Electric Vehicles recently did an interview with Autoblog and took a shot at Tesla when talking about the Mach-E's build quality. He didn't mention them by name but it's pretty clear who he's talking about.

While the buyers of some electric vehicles have had to accept certain flaws, Palmer says that this isn’t acceptable for Ford. “The doors fit properly, the plastics and other materials color-match, the bumpers don’t fall off, the roof doesn’t come off when you wash it, the door handles don’t get stuck in cold weather. ...”

This is a strategy to provide electric vehicles for people who are not willing to compromise — and won't need to.

True but will the MMe make 'farting' noises or sound like an 'ice cream truck'? I just got a visual of the Tesla 'farting' and then the rear bumper falls off. 😖

He's not willing to put his money where his mouth is... Check the thread below. How about a warranty equivalent to Hyundai EVs if he's so confident? I'll take a 5 year / 60K warranty over any of his cheap trash talk. Trash talk from a kid who's failing the class. Hello? 10 Explorer recalls in 1 year?

Instead of trash talk, how about they do something useful, and communicate with people, already in the queue, about an estimated date for when their schedule date will be.
