According to upstream news, in response to the price cut, the store staff responded: "There is no non-disclosure agreement, and there is no (compensation) plan. It is indeed Tesla's official price adjustment."

The knob in the middle of the Ford electric horse has a new purpose
I still remember that in the Ford China Design Center last year, many media made a lot of comments to the Ford Electric Horse. One of them was the knob on the central control screen. The function is too single, and it should not only be able to adjust the volume.
However, Ford has brought a number of software upgrades in the latest "Power Up 4.1.2" firmware, including the use of a physical knob in the middle of the screen to control the air conditioner.
Ford electric horse owners only need to click the temperature, air volume, or seat heating buttons on the screen, and then they can perform corresponding operations through the physical knob in the middle.
In addition, Ford's "SYNC 4A" infotainment system also uses newly designed icons, and some settings and controls have also been integrated, making the logic more reasonable.
