Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

Actually I've never driven my FFE down to zero miles. The closest I got was about 5 miles in the dead of winter (I think I only went about 50 miles then too). Note that I don't have my FFE anymore--haven't had it for 4 years now. Its really hard to measure battery degradation by using the guess-o-me...

Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

Actually the owner's manual doesn't really do a very good job of describing all the dash gauges. The range to empty value of the FFE (commonly called the "Guess-O-Meter") is a calculated average of your driving habits and electricity consumption heavily weighted to your most recent driving. As such ...

Re: Debating a 2017

Sync3 vs MFT and fast charge (CCS) that is about the only differences besides the larger battery.

Re: 2016 focus electric only shows 57 mile budget

In the winter my 2013 FFE would frequently read only 50 miles.

It is very possible that it only shows 57 miles on a full charge. That Guess-O-Meter can be very unreliable at times.

Re: AC Turns On during DC Charging

Yeah someone mentioned that the AC comes on when DC fast charging. The car is doing everything it can to keep the batteries cool at that time. I know when I've fast charged my Bolt and another Bolt that I've rented they both made a huge racket as just about every fan on the car comes on to keep thin...

Re: More Aggressive Battery Regeneration

One of the EV's with paddles you're referring to is the Bolt. On the Bolt when you put the car into L you're in "One Pedal Mode" where taking your foot completely off the gas will start a max 0.2G deceleration. This will bring the car to a complete stop (you can adjust the amount of decel from 0-0.2...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

Note that they don't make the FFE anymore and it is likely don't make the batteries anymore either. Thus any replacements going forward would have to be refurbished. The lucky ones to get the larger pack happened to need a replacement while the FFE was still in production (or shortly thereafter when...

Re: Road trip (rental)

Is this enhanced meter in the car, online, or as a phone app?
Its in the car on the left display. You use the left arrow keys on the steering wheel to find it.
