Thanks!Found in MachE Owners manual just now:
SETTING THE LIFTGATE OPENING HEIGHT
- Open the liftgate.
Note: Once the liftgate stops moving, you can manually move it to the desired height.
- Stop the liftgate movement by pressing the control button on the liftgate when it reaches the desired height.
Note: You can only use the liftgate control button to program the height.
- Press and hold the control button on the liftgate until a tone sounds, indicating programming is complete.
Note: You cannot program the height if the liftgate position is too low.
Note: You can fully open the liftgate by manually pushing it upward to the maximum open position if it opens in a lower position.
- The power liftgate now opens at the programmed height. To change the programmed height, repeat the steps.
Note: The system recalls the new programmed height until you reprogram it, even if you disconnect the battery.
I am sure you are correct. That is the way the liftgate works on my Edge.
Maybe I should have been more clear: As the roof of the MME slopes (Ford rep said to improve aerodynamics) the liftgate where positioned is not at the high point of the roof. So even in the highest up position the liftgate is still low on the roof line. In a normal SUV, when the liftgate is up, you can almost stack to the ceiling. In the MME that is not possible.
On the Tesla the hinge for liftgate is further into the roof. When the liftgate is up all the way, you can load to the ceiling.
The distance from the floor of the Tesla to the hinge of the liftgate is longer than the floor to the hinge on the MME - the opening on Model Y is taller - bigger than the opening on the MME. What that means is that a bigger box, etc. can be fitted into the Model Y than the MME. The opening of the Model Y is more like the opening of a SUV or a minivan. The opening of the MME is more like a hatchback.
Hope you can follow me!
