Re: Don't put the Focus in the rental fleet before customers

The OP goes all the way back to Feb' 2011 !! Things change fairly quickly with EV's and later in '12 as well as into '13 we should see even more changes ... in any case, I too was an 'original' reservation holder for a new LEAF (which went back to April of 2010) and took delivery of my LEAF on 12/23...

Out of all 3 of Ford's environmental vehicles which one is the most practical right now? I absolutely love this ford focus electric forum and was wondering if there was anything similar for the Ford Fusion Hybrid and the Ford Escape Hybrid so I could try to compare all 3 cars side by side.
