I would really like the platinum. I would love the stereo upgrade and any other extras that come with it. But the thought of $60,000 makes me itch! 😆 In the scheme of things, it sounds arbitrary, I guess...
Doesn't sound arbitrary at all! I also didn't like the thought of paying 60k...and as much as I hate to say it, for a Nissan.
The three things giving me pause about the platinum are the blue gray interior as the only current option (I really do prefer the charcoal look), the cost of awd (I don't need it but would love to have it and that 0-60 time is nice) and the fact that it would be produced last in line behind the fwd models. I waited over a year to get my Mach E only to be disappointed with the ride and now I'm impatient for the car that I probably should have held out for.
There are folks who managed to trade in their non-gt mach es for gts since they were produced later and didn't really lose any money on the deal so maybe that would be an option if the used car market stays crazy. Get my hands on the earliest available and then as more configurations become available, trade it in for that.
