Re: Is the heater/defroster a range killer?

Fluke: Northern British Columbia. -23C here this morning. I don't scrimp on the heat/comfort, but do try to use it wisely. With a fresh charge in the morning, my in-dash display is indicating a useable range of 60Km total. I have no reason to doubt this, as when I drive approximately 30km, I have h...

One-touch up or down window control

On my Focus Electric, only one window was opening all the way with the one touch. The manual on page 142 describes the feature. On 143 it says how to reset the bounce-back feature. This turns out to also enable the one-touch feature. In a nut shell, just close the window, then release and hold the u...

Re: FFE Efficient driver feedback

1. I would also like to have that. 2. L just remaps the throttle to do more regen. I wish there was a setting to make it do stronger regen. 3. I will figure that out when I get the car. 4. I would like to hear also. Many cars it is more like 45 since an idling ice uses energy. Since there is so litt...

Re: FFE now available at the closest dealer to the plant.

I would recommend going with a lease. Zero down and 389 per month, or 2190 down and 328 a month with a 45% (18000) residual gives a total cost of 32000. That is what you would pay if you bought it and got the federal tax credit. If you have state credits, you get them when you buy out the lease at t...

Re: Volts

I believe that it is 300 volts. The solar panel on the leaf only keeps the accessory battery charged. On the prius it can run a cooling fan.

Re: Body work with Ford Focus

The battery should be well insulated. The heat isn't on that long in the oven.

Re: Dear Ford...

I like the creep. I would like much stronger regen in low like the Chevy volt. Perhaps it could be configured in setup settings. Even if only by the dealer. My 2012 should be on Monday. I can't wait!
