Re: New owner of 2017 FFE

LOL You haven't read my blog with its endless winter driving posts... Just did. Cruised through most of the "Winter" posts. Much of it rings true. Although your take on the Focus "traction" in winter isn't as damning as my experience. "Traction control" flashing all the way to 30 mph isn't my conce...

Re: New owner of 2017 FFE

Thread necromancy incoming... I felt I should give an update after more than a year of driving the car. I'm now approaching 30k km and no perceptible battery degradation. No major technical issues with the car. My previous post was a warning of what winter driving would be like. I thought I had expe...

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and a new FFE owner. I bought a 2017 in October. So far I enjoy the car but I'm wondering if some of you can help me out with conserving/saving energy. I live in Ontario, Canada and the winter can be problematic. I drive about 35km to work one way. One day last ...

This. It's reassuring to have 2 driver's licenses available.

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

A half hour or hour wait every 150 km is not bad. A 24-hour or 7-day wait is much worse. If you had to charge on L2 due to defective DC charger, it would take 5 hours to charge, not 24. That's still pretty bad. Yes an extra hour every 150 km is not bad, but it's not good either. Having an "easy way...

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

Summer is coming soon and we already have higher numbers on the GOM this morning! :D 132.5 miles / 212 km. Probably due to higher inflation of the tires due to higher exterior temperatures. I've also started seeing 200+km on the GOM and we live in the same climate. Last time I checked my tire press...

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

I want to share my experience with fast charging my 2017 FFE. I recently did a trip of 200+ km one way, with a stop in the middle to fast charge. Shortly after plugging in, the charging rate was somewhat stable around 320V 125A, according to the panel on the charging station. My car went from 10% to...

Re: Will a stroller fit?

I have a Graco Pace Click Connect and I cannot fit it without removing both the cargo organizer and the tray. If I leave the tray in, the hatch doesn't close without bending and possibly damaging the tray. I can also unhook the tray and sort off leave it hanging there on top of the stroller at a wei...

Re: New owner of 2017 FFE

Did my first "long distance" trip. Drove to the mountain for skiing 60 km each way, 120 km total, driving 100kmh most of the time. Started with 95% battery, was at 54%/80km left at the mountain (I was slightly worried at that point) and ended back at home with 21%/40 km left (downhill and regen gave...
