Re: Solar Roof Concept Ford C-Max - pretty cool, its a start

A creative idea. At 300 W, the solar panels alone won't do much. It takes 6.93 kWh for me to fully recharge my Fusion. That would be 23 hours of sunshine. But with the solar concentrator they describe, that magnifies the sun 8x, that would bring charging time down to 2 hours and 53 minutes if all of...

Re: Deciding between Focus EV and C-Max Energi

I had a cmax energi and I did like it but traded it for the FFE. Between the sweet lease deal etc. I came out great! Now no more gas ever!! I'm so happy with the car. I got a brand new auto dimming mirror w/homelink for a $150 and installed it so that takes care of that issue. As far as your range ...

Re: Deciding between Focus EV and C-Max Energi

One of my co-workers bought a C-max Energi, and a week later I bought the FFE. He was totally envious. He never liked the Cmax and eventually got rid of it. He was always trying to run it as an EV, but it had no power or range in EV mode. He also said the mileage wasn't great. He had traded in a Ma...

Re: Deciding between Focus EV and C-Max Energi

Yes. That's what I found with the cmax. It seemed to have a weak electric motor. And the gas engine wanted to come on if you put your foot into it. I did like the room in the cmax being a taller big guy. Also my gas mpg was usually around 35-37mpg and that was going like 60mph. Having my FFE now I'...

Deciding between Focus EV and C-Max Energi

I’m trying to decide between buying either a Focus EV or a C-Max Energi. What is attractive to me about the Focus EV is the lease price, the possibility of fewer repairs due to no ICE, the gas savings of going all electric, the sleek styling, the handling, and performance. The things that are attrac...

What I am missing on the Focus Electric

I bought my wife a Fusion Energi last month and I like it so much that I've started thinking about buying a Focus Electric for myself so that I can park my 14.3 mpg F150. I took a test drive and I like the car. I was particularly pleased with the acceleration, handling, and overall feel of the car. ...
