Fuel-Efficient Fords like the Ford Focus Push Sales higher

Ford reported $2.5 billion dollar first quarter profit - the highest they've had since 1998. Their sales have definitely benefited from shifting to smaller more fuel efficient vehicles like the Ford Fusion Hybrid. During the first quarter, US sales of hybrid cars were up 33 percent, and subcompact c...

Will Electric Cars be a Fad?

...not a fad as in something that isn't popular in 5 years, but a fad as in once the Ford Focus EV is available there will be huge hype, but once the new version of the Ford Focus EV comes out a few years later, will the old version be like the old version of the iPhone? Or will EVs have a lasting p...

Fuel Factor - Are EVs really worth it?

Cars.com set up a challenge that pitted EV against non-EV. Unfortunately the Ford Focus Electric isn't available yet so it didn't compete in the challenge, but the Nissan Leaf, Chevy Volt and the gasoline version of the Ford Focus did. Cars in the Challenge were a 2012 FOrd Focus, 2011 Toyota Prius ...

Re: Alan Mulally on Ford's Future

I like to think he's acting so casual about Ford's position on electric vehicles because Ford's going to making a big announcement soon :)

New Jersey Passes bill about car charging stations

With the Ford Focus Electric set to hit the market later this year (or at least that's the last date we've heard from Ford) and the Nissan Leaf already on the Road, the New Jersey Assembly has passed a bill requiring charging stations at rest stops along the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway...

Re: Electric car sales are flat

We at the Ford Focus Electric Forum totally agree! I posted that more just for your information than to actually imply that I support that point of view. It's surprising the amount of mainstream media that pushes this stuff and the number of people that seem to believe it! Although, what CAN you bel...

Energized to drive electric

With the Ford Focus Electric due in select markets by the end of 2011, it pays to know who the competing vehicles and manufacturers will be. This graphic also show how long it would take to recoup the cost difference of buying the Electric Ford Focus versus a normal gasoline powered vehicle. http://...

Electric car sales are flat

Interesting view by the Richmond Times on the sales numbers of electric vehicles versus normaly vehicles. I wonder if the Ford Focus Electric will fare any better? Or if it doesn't have to do so much with demand but more with the supply of the electric vehicles to the consumer? I bet there would be ...
