Re: Ford Focus Electric First Drive Reviews

Thanks for posting the links! It seems to me like most reviews are impressed with the Ford Focus Electric, but when comparing it to the Nissan Leaf they don't think the Focus EV has enough positive features. Interesting comment from Inside Line's review: "The 2012 Ford Focus Electric may have a slig...

Re: Order 2012 Focus online?

That's interesting that Ford won't allow the discount pricing on the Focus Electric - has it taken them this long to realize how much an electric vehicle can cost? I feel like when you put a deposit down for a Ford Focus Electric, it was at a quoted price, and you putting money down is your agreemen...

Re: Ford Focus Electric has 100% sustinable interior

From what I understand, most, if not all, of the sustainable materials used in the Ford Focus Electric are in the interior. The interior hopefully won't be subject to lots of moisture for extended periods of time, so I don't think rot and decay will be an issue. On the outside/underside of the Ford ...

Re: Battery Upgrade program

Renault is leasing the battery in it's Zoe in Europe, so far they seem to be having success, but I guess it's too early to tell.

Re: Ford Focus Electric receives EPA ratings

It's great that the Ford Focus Electric received such great numbers, but I don't think it's anything worth really bragging about. The Nissan Leaf is using 2 year old technology, and the not even available yet Ford Focus Electric can just barely beat it?

Ford Focus Electric gets HOV access

This is good news for people in California - today the California Air Resources Board granted the Ford Focus Electric HOV access. I'm not sure why it was ever up for debate - how could a car be greener than an all electric vehicle? Plus the Ford Focus Electric has all of the green plastics and uphol...

As the Ford Focus Electric and other electric vehicles become more common, emergency response personnel are at danger when they respond to crashes where hybrid and electric vehicles are involved. Here's an interesting article that talks about some of the risks, and some of the training that's being ...

Chevy Cruze - a competitor to the Ford Focus Electric

This article talks about a professional hyper-miling crew from Australia that drove the Chevy Cruze Eco through all the 48 connected states, and averaged 64.42 MPG! The Chevy Cruze was completely unmodified, and a new one can be bought for a base sticker price of $19,999. The EPA puts an automatic C...
