Re: Silicon Valley Drive Electric Week: World Record Attempt

Thanks to everyone who showed up and help set the new record.

Have not seen so many FFEs in one place ever - even on dealer lots. :)

Re: Silicon Valley Drive Electric Week: World Record Attempt

Yes, I think FFE is underrepresented going by the sales numbers.
There should be at least 20 if there are 200+ Leafs.

We need 100 more EVs. We have 90 hours. Crunch time.

We have 14 FFEs so far out of 370 EVs registered. We need

I think there are a lot more FFEs in Silicon Valley

Re: Government incentives and rebates

Actually it is no big deal. Just Google "CA EV rebate" and follow step by step instructions. I got my check within 60 days after applying. The fed credit I will get when fill up my turbo tax online next year.

Re: Government incentives and rebates

Any car sold in 2012 irrespective of model year qualifies for 7500 tax credit. You got to have 7500 in federal taxes to get the credit. 2500 rebate exists in CA until the rebate program runs out of funds but the program still has 15 million. So it is not going to run out anytime soon. There are no o...

Re: New Focus and Charging Topics

I have a Volt and a Focus Electric. I had an extra 120V Voltec Charge Cord to use on the go but since I just use 120V to charge my Focus (25 mile total commute), I was thinking of just using the cord in the FFE as the one on the go. I discovered to my surprise that it does not work with the FFE. The...

Re: Bay Area Dealers

Finally got mine from Harrold Ford, Sacramento. They had the only car with the specs I wanted - Frosted Glass/Silver with no leather within a 150 mile radius. Got a few dealers here like Morgan Hill Ford and Fairfield Ford to do invoice price but they just did not have the car. Harrold Ford matched ...

Re: Bay Area Dealers

Bluegreen thanks for you input. I am still waiting for my car to arrive. Your experiences are so far similar to mine. Now the price of the car has dropped below MSRP in most dealerships. If you do not mind could you please tell how much below? Though your trade-in complicates the picture a bit. I do...

Re: Ford Focus Electric sales numbers

Ford priced the FFE too high. I do not know what they were thinking. The fully loaded titanium model has invoice of 24K. Ford saved at least 4K by replacing the gas drive train (engine + control + 6 speed trans) with a simple motor + 1 speed. Add to this battery at $500/Kwh and the invoice should be...
