It cannot be flat towed, the front, or all four, tires must be off the ground.

Re: Push Button Start

Hi Eco. I'm not an expert on the Focus Electric but do have one on order, hoping for delivery in Sept-Oct. I don't know what you expect by remote starting, that is, what would be accomplished.

The batteries are under and behind the rear seat, so the front grill would have no impact on temperature regulation (on the batteries).

Ford is not responsible for this, but when I receive my Focus, hopefully this Sept-Oct, I may be the only one plugging in to some charge point. How are people going to sort out and monitor the inevitable "hey it's my turn now" issues that will flare up. Will people be given 1 hour slots to charge if...
