I should also note that only the leather seats come with power (driver only). The Reprieve cloth ones are manual.

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

I actually like the leather, and I'm okay with the colour & pattern. I did not like the cloth. The red 2017 I "had" was built as a base model with the cloth, and missing things like the interior light kit (which I thought was strange), it gave a feeling of "cheapness" to the car that I don't get wi...

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

Are the leather seats quality leather or the cheap pleather crap? Deciding if i want base model or leather seats. I've not felt them in person, but really don't care for the pattern. The Reprieve cloth is pretty cool though. Not sure how it holds up, but seems robust. Here's a link to the leather p...

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

Nice! Hopefully mine goes the 5 miles down the road from the plant to my dealer any day... Mine's got 10 miles to go (Bill Brown Ford) What dealer is yours going to? Village Ford. It was "received" by some company a week ago, presumably to ship it. Not the actual truck though. Sitting on ramp 4G si...

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

I can shed some light on your confusion with the charging lock. If you look just above the J1772 port, there's a small dot. It's a pin that comes out and prevents the release "hook" or clasp, from lifting when you press the release button on the charge handle. I believe it works for normal (Level 1...

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

Guess I'll just have to live with the videos JMueller linked to a while ago (maybe it was somebody else - those videos are so darn cool). Honestly that video is quite excellent. It shows a ton in such a short period. I'd just do the Dearborn Rouge tour if you're ever around. It's a much nicer facul...

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

That's so cool getting a factory tour. How did you arrange that? Does the Focus plant do public tours? I don't see any indication that they do public tours, but the Dearborn F-150 Rouge Plant does, which I've also been through a couple times. So does the Corvette plant in Bowling Green, KY, which I...

Re: Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

I toured the Focus/C-MAX plant (Michigan Assembly/MAP) today. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see my FFE get assembled. Apparently, it was made yesterday and is sitting in the lot awaiting transport. Hopefully that means I'll get it in a few days. Still, the tour was a great experience. Not my first...
