The Mach-E was on full display at this year's Washington Auto Show in DC and there are a bunch of great photos to go through.

Did the huge sun roof have any type of shade you can put across it? Seems it would make the car really hot while parked in the sun.

There is definitely no sun shade, although Ford is confident that the coatings on the glass will prevent it from getting too hot. I am skeptical of that, and wouldn't be surprised if an aftermarket shade of some kind comes out.

^what @timbop said, Ford seems to be banking that their treated glass will keep the car from getting too hot or cold. This seems to be a trend because I think other EVs and ICE cars are starting to do the same thing.

Yes. I spoke with their MME specialist for quite a while. Wish I had thought to ask the charger question then! However, between reading the AMA with the MME engineer and seeing images of a few other MME prototypes, it's clear this was being tested for the Euro market, thus the Euro plug. Since Ford has thrown their hat in with the Electrify America system for chargers and EA uses J1772 and CCS Combo Type 1 like the rest of the US systems, the Washington Auto Show prototype was clearly a fluke.
