Re: 2012 FFE Trailer hitch

I found out some information that should be of interest to anyone wanting to tow a trailer with their FFE. First, the Ford also does not recommend towing with the gas powered Focus but there is quite a bit of discussion concerning trailering on the Focus forums. The general consensus is that if the ...

Re: CCS Conversions

To all those posters that wish to provide discouraging remarks concerning CCS conversions; I’ve already heard all of those arguments against CCS conversions before and I disagree with them. If you don’t have substantive or supportive to say, please keep your comments to yourselves on this thread.

Re: CCS Conversions

Won't the 2017 FFE have CCS ? Trade your 2013 in for that. There are over 6,000 FFEs in the Unites States and they are all very nice cars but they all suffer from the lack of fast charging capabilities.

Re: 2012 FFE Trailer hitch

I am very interested in pulling a battery trailer such as the ones being developed by BVB Innovate (http://bvb-innovate.com/?lang=en) to extent the range of my 2013 FFE. I know there could be issues with my warranty if I pull this trailer but my drive train warranty is set to expire pretty soon anyw...

CCS Conversions

I'm opening this thread because I think conversions to Combined Charging System for DCFC charging of the Ford Focus Electric are inevitable and this thread is intended to capture efforts in creating these conversions. Personally I plan to continue to investigate CCS conversions until I have accompli...

Re: Charge port Assembly

You should be able to get to the charge port by removing the tire and the fender well. I recommend you purchase the FFE service manual if you are going to do this yourself.
