Ford states that the new Focus will be built in China. No joke.

And, of course, with EVs required by China, it will be the opportune place to build.

I would say that a lease transfer tax is only in a few states. For instance, California does not assess a transfer tax.

Lease Assumption on Focus Electric Available

Focus Electric 2013 in absolutely mint condition. 15 months remaining on lease. Effective monthly payment: $312.08 I was thinking of moving up to the Tesla Model S.

Re: Anything goes

Ford has been and still is a member of the CCS DC Quick Charge consortium. There is absolutely no chance that Ford will move to CHAdeMO for several reasons, not the least being that the CHAdeMO standard is made up of Japanese and Korean manufacturers (and Renault). ALL other German, and U.S. automak...

Re: Intelligent charge station navigation

Ford announced a year or so back that Ford has a relationship with Plugshare for the plug-in hybrids. (They didn't mention the FFE for some reason.) I don't know what happened with that announced...

Re: Price Point

California enacted a horrible law. EVA, without California enacting CARB, we would have one, possibly two selections for EVs today: Tesla and Nissan. The remainder of the EVs on the market today are sold solely or primarily because of California's ZEV mandate. So, really, the California law is not ...
