Re: More unofficial delays with the Ford Focus Electric

I really thought the entire point of using the Focus was that they could just change the power train out on the assembly like just like any other option. So I thought they could roll out to everyone who wanted one at the same time. The Nissan LEAF is still not in my state, so Ford could have been fi...

Re: Lack of news for the Ford Focus EV

Klaus I know what you mean it is driving me crazy. I search 2-3 times a day for information on any site I can find. I really like the Ford Focus EV. It looks so much better than the Nissan Leaf and the battery management system if is so much better than the Lead. I had been folllowing the Nissan Lea...

Re: Ford to hold launch ceremony for 2012 Focus at Wayne pla

Does anyone know the production capability of the plant? I saw an interview with a Ford engineer where they were talking about production rates. He said a very small number of only 7,000 to 10,000 EVs.

Re: Lack of news for the Ford Focus EV

The lack of news sucks right now. But I think Nissan got people to exited way before the deliveries, which is causeing a lot of the frustration that is appearing now. I am sketchy on the timelime because it has been a while. But I was following the Leaf from day one and had one of the first reservat...

Re: Focus EV Release Cities

The cities idea is a little different. I half expected Ford to be trying like crazy to make the people in California happy. I don't like the roll out areas type of thing. If it is a problem where a company can't afford to certify everyone and get the equipment needed I wish they would just come out ...

Come up with a real reservation list.

Instead of the $99 get your money back whenever you want deposit like the Leaf. Have a 2 level deposit. The $500 no refund unless it takes more than a year to get your car deposit and $99 get your money back when every you want deposit. The people in the $500 category would be at the front of the li...

Don't put the Focus in the rental fleet before customers

I was one of the first 8,000 to put my deposit down for a Leaf. I later cancelled when Nissan said it was going into rental fleets before they filled all the customer orders. I was in a non-rollout area so "My place in history" with Nissan meant nothing. Anyone who put their reservation in from a ro...

Re: Pricing

I am going to guess a little higher than the Leaf. I figure the battery management system will add some to the price.
