Re: Shopping: Ford Focus Electric vs Chevy Spark EV

Visibility is an aspect that still bugs me about FFE: for my height, views to the sides are blocked significantly by sloping front pillars, and I find it harder to estimate how close the front corners are to obstacles than in older cars. Test drive carefully for yourself. Otherwise, am happy with th...

Re: How Many of Us Are There?? Focus Electric SalesNews&Info

Wishful thinking: Ford is secretly developing an even better EV, with improved range, to reveal about with Chevy's new one.
Suspicion: they are happy to go on making popular pickup trucks et al. instead (at least while gasoline is sort of cheap).

Re: Over 700 Wh/km!

Data on left side screen seems believable. Ours shows lifetime average around 246 Wh/mile (153 Wh/km), with a significant amount of driving on small roads, and mild climate. High speed driving (and use of heater) are the biggest negative factors that we can control (hills: necessary, and up/down ten...

Re: How Many of Us Are There?? Focus Electric SalesNews&Info

Ever wondered? How big is this Ford Focus Electric thing anyway? [...] Total Sales as of Dec. 2015: 5,977 Ford Focus Electrics (FFE) sold; (+66 in Jan. 2016 alone) http://insideevs.com/monthly-plug-in-sales-scorecard/ It would be neat to get an estimate of number of FFE's that have had major proble...

Re: Recall / Field Service Action; Where to find more info?

Despite the fact that I don't have an FFE anymore I received the recall notices in the mail today for the new SSN recall. Programs 15B23 and 15N03. I received those recall notices too ... for the FFE we returned last July (end of lease). Appears that Ford /Michigan did not get the news that we had ...

Re: Focus Electric Spotting Thread

I recall just 3 others (or 2, 1 of 'em seen twice?) in Marin county: a brown one spotted at Target's shopping center and a silver at a charging station in Novato. Leaf and Tesla predominate, + a few Fiat 500's, with BMW i-3 coming along too.

Re: Ford FOcus Electric with Flux Capacitor option

About speed limiting: The car used to show a message about "... limited to 80 mph" on the left screen, at start up. Last week, while hurrying around a driver whose weird moves worried me, my FFE speedometer got up to 86 briefly. a) Why did it stop showing that message about a 80 limit? b) What is a ...

Re: Buying 2012

Also I could be reading it wrong but it seems like quite a few people here don't look on the cars future with much hope. That really shouldn't matter in your decision because you're considering a 2012. What does it matter if Ford stops building it in 2018? It is a very good car and should last you-...
