Re: 2017 Focus Electric Reviews

I've not found any either when I was looking a few months back. Honestly most of the ones from the 2012/2013 model years are just as good, as it's basically the same car. Just ignore any snark they give about the range or SYNC system, as both have been greatly improved now. If you find any for 2016,...

Re: can replace 23kw battery by new 33kw wiht same AC charge

I recall sharing that the retail price for the HV battery set (includes upper and lower packs) was in the $8K range (maybe in another thread). Apparently it was an issue with purchasing, cataloging or someone... The catalog has recently been corrected to the appropriate price. $22K now :shock: Wonde...

Re: Fields is out

I think the smaller SUVs are selling like crazy now: Just look at Buick & Chevy--I see those tiny things everywhere. Indeed they are. Nothing like the C segment, but still. I really wish we had brought the EcoSport over to North America 2 years ago. I've sat in one, and I'd certainly drive one, but...

Re: Fields is out

Given all the talk about the 300 mile S/CUV I think its going to be a variant of the 2018 EcoSport (plop a 60kWh+ battery in that and you have a good competitor for the Bolt). Yeah I agree: put the hybrid powertrain into the Escape and they would have sold a ton (even though the C-Max and Escape ar...

Re: Fields is out

I liked him as well. I did think, however, that they got away from some of the "greener" things that Bill was promoting. In addition, some of his statements seemed kind of odd (like the "We could make an EV right now"!? Why didn't they?). The "promise" of the 13 vehicles I think is one of the reaso...

Re: Fields is out

I liked him and agreed with the direction he had been selling to the rest of us at the company recently. My only complaints are that I'd prefer for us to rank higher in quality and have fewer stale products though. The promise of the 13 "electrified" vehicles as well as some of the other announced v...

Re: '17 FFE Dead 12Volt battery

I similarly would not call anything a prototype or beta, which is being offered to customers as a commercial product. Volume of production is irrelevant to me, as long as it is greater than zero. :D I have to agree. Any vehicle sold by an OEM to a customer as a normal car, should come with those sa...

Re: generator as range extender

Good luck. I'm curious how you would deal with regen. wouldn't the power from regen braking harm your charger? You can't drive the car while it's plugged in, so therefore you can't charge while driving. I'm guessing you'd have to pull over and plug it in for a while to charge, like it was a chargin...

Yeah "Ford Focus Electric Owners' Group". A whopping 283 members. Oddly, there's a "Ford Focus Electric Club - Jordan" with 3,883 members. Apparently they're popular in Jordan.
