Re: VIN

Hey thanks for the comments, there are a lot of variables. My routine is pretty well set with little variation, so I nearly always will be able to charge between the midnight to six period, and rarely will need to charge during daytime hours. In fact I park at a state-owned parking deck and may be a...

Re: '12 Tuxedo Black Delivered in Miami!

We shipped my daughter's Fit from Virginia to Orange County, CA, 2 years ago and I think it may have been as much as $900, but then again $650 comes to mind. Well that wasn't much help.

Re: VIN

Thanks for the comments. Trying to figure out which plan to enroll in, if any, made me walk away from it a couple of times. I wish I could copy the images of the rate charts that show the different time zones, but they should be on this link below. Once I thought the EV plan with separate meter woul...

Re: VIN

Jason updated me this weekend to say Ford has a production or build date for my car of August 6. :shock: Need a call back from best buy to schedule survey of my garage. Dominion Power will be at my home on August 7 to install a new meter as I enrolled in the EV Plus Home program. This meter will kee...

Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

I like this idea. I'm planning on doing it next month when I'm crossing from the east coast of FL to the west coast via Alligator Alley. 90+ mile stretch of highway with only 2 rest stops and 2 exits in between! Ha ha, well good luck and hope you don't have dinner with the gators! The 110 mile rang...

Re: The West Coast Green Highway, will the Focus be compatab

Will fast DC charging have an impact on the life of the battery? Based on all known battery technologies to date, yes. But I don't know for certain about the Lithium Ion polymers used in the Focus Electric, I assume yes. The super-rapid charging is not an issue for me and my intended uses, but the ...

Re: Is the heater/defroster a range killer?

hi m, you ask a couple of questions that I was very concerned about. I thought that battery power as used for heating and cooling would greatly reduce the range of the vehicle. I will travel 50 upwards of 60 miles on a day if I run to Target on the way home. After I read how it was done I went ahead...

VIN

Jason at Richmond Ford emailed me this morning to say they had received a VIN for my FFE, in a status of "In Order Processing". They estimate availability of August 20. This is about 2 months earlier than we had guessed. Michigan Assembly Plant doing good work. There was a link in one of these threa...
