    does it have a mode to use a little extra battery when you're almost at your destination and you don't want the ice to fire?

    No different from the regular Gen 4. Just drive gently in hybrid mode.

    np!

    that's excellent, cause the pip fires the ice as soon as you run out of wall charge, even if you're going 1 mph.

    Really? That's ridiculous. Well the Gen 4 *feels* like there's more motor torque available. You can jab the accelerator on our Gen 4 and the engine stays off.

    yeah, you can't go by the lift back, the software operates differently, because the engine warms up when you first start it. pip allows you to drive with a cold engine, but not without wall charge. i guess they figured it's better to warm up the engine as soon as it runs out, rather than some point with lower battery capacity. hopefully prime is more flexible. ford has a button for the times you are almost at your destination, and there's no point to warming up the engine.

    I really like the EV Mode, verses EV Auto.
    I was always pissed when the ICE started because I had to step on the Gas.
    The Prime in EV Mode won't ask the ICE to start, until you exceed 84 mph or run out of battery.
    EV Auto is more like the PIP was. I don't plan to use it.
