A couple more photos of the Mach-E prototype have surfaced. It has Michigan plates on but I'm not sure where the photo was actually taken,

That is so weird how the panels are frankensteined together, including the cover on the charging port. I wonder if the intention is seeing how different paints hold up, or if the prototypes they are using for duration/road testing are really just glommed together from parts?

My guess (and hope) is that they are simply testing it under real world conditions to get a better idea of range tweaks they are making, as well as overall durability.
They also could be testing stuff for the software since they'll have OTA updates.

Guys, I am surprised that they are still testing the SUV, they should deliver next fall! o_O
I'm glad they're still testing. I hope they never finish testing. I'd love for the manufacturer to triage as many defects as possible, leaving fewer new issues to be discovered by you or me. :cool:

There's this other car manufacturer out there, whose vehicles share the roads with the rest of us, that seems to be okay with its customers collecting their software and safety beta test results and training its "neural networks." I'm not on board with that plan.

I agree, it's good to see them still testing the car. It shows to me that they're not sitting on their hands until production actually starts.

Just saw some more pics of the Mach-E testing in Belgium.

Tesla fans were cracking jokes about the panel gaps. It's obvious the hood is open.
