Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

Very Nice! I was interested in the terrain aspect. I have a rechargeable electric lawn mower, and if, due to rain, or laziness, I mow the lawn when it is really long, that really taxes the battery. I was wondering if people live in hilly or mountainous terrain and if hills (fighting gravity) really...

Re: Finally have mine!

Deposit made May 05, final payment made last Monday, Aug 06, and delivered to my local dealer today. Maybe the first one sold in Western Canada. (?) Slyastro beat me to the first in Canada, so I have to brag where I can. Frosted Glass. Leather. Robin Sipe. Hello Robin !! I'm glad to learn that I'm ...

Re: The FIRST FORD FOCUS ELECTRIC bought in Canada (by me!!!

How are you liking your Focus Electric? I'm almost at 3000 KM (1900 miles) in 3 weeks! So far I love it !! The fast recharging is it's main advantage. But I also like the iPhone app (updates are 3 times faster than the VOLT iphone app), and the range prediction is very precise! You can actually res...

Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

Sylvain excellent! I have a feeling your record will stand for a while. Hmm, have you signed up on Ford's site, you've probably unlocked an "achievement" with that. Do I read that right 4hours 48 minutes of drive time? That's a long time in the saddle, what did you have going for audio? Did you get...

Re: FFE Battery Size

I had the opportunity to speak with an engineer on the FFE, and asked what portion of the battery is being used and the answer was "we are using between 19 and 20 kWh." So 85% seems like a pretty good number to use. Somewhere on fordfocuselectric.com there is a post from that conversation. Charged ...

Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

I like this idea. I'm planning on doing it next month when I'm crossing from the east coast of FL to the west coast via Alligator Alley. 90+ mile stretch of highway with only 2 rest stops and 2 exits in between! Ha ha, well good luck and hope you don't have dinner with the gators! The 110 mile rang...

Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

Hello everyone!! Okay, I did it last evening! As you can see with the pictures as proof, I ended with 207.3 KM (128.81 Miles) !! That means that 130+ MILES would have been possible since I had 10 KM left on the battery range! By the way, 18.8 KwH were used, and I still had 10 KM left, meaning that I...

Re: FFE Battery Size

I've also been following the recent Nissan Leaf battery degradation issues in hot climates and note that the Leaf's Owner Manual recommends charging the battery to not more than 80% to maximize battery life (this recommendation is independent of climate). I read through the Focus Electric Owner Man...
