Re: Ford has sold 10 Ford Focus Electric vehicles

When Ford first announced the Ford Focus Electric they said it would be around $30K which started a lot of buzz on the internet. Now that we can pre-order them, they are almost $40K. At this price it's slightly better numbers aren't worth the thousands extra over the Nissan Leaf in my opinion. That...

Re: Ford Focus Electric qualifies for $2500 extra tax rebate

Wow, great info - thanks RedEV! Do you have a red ev? Yes, indeed ... have owned a red LEAF for just under 3 months (photo shows it getting charged at home in my garage -- Schneider EVLink 240V L2 charger), with gas prices quickly approaching $5 here in Chicago we're saving lot's of money every day...

Re: Ford Focus Electric qualifies for $2500 extra tax rebate

In California, the Ford Focus Electric qualifies for an extra $2500 state tax credit. Add that to the $7500 federal tax credit, and that's a total of $10,000 of credits off of a Ford Focus Electric. The Ford Focus Electric starting price is $39,200 and after tax credits in California that brings th...

Re: More unofficial delays with the Ford Focus Electric

I wonder how many early adopter sales Ford will lose on this ... have to believe that the initial market is still relatively small numbers but it's an opportunity lost. With gas prices on the rise, I would think that the ICE Focus will ramp up before they allocate a small number of EV versions that ...

Re: Ford brough several shades of green to autoshow

RedEV is that a picture you took yourself? Do you have a picture of the limited trunk space in the Focus Electric or the C-max Energi? Wow, $4.95 a gallon. I guess when you consider we are all now 'used to' and don't hardly complain about the $4 a gallon price now.... :cry: Yes, I took that photo b...

Re: Ford brough several shades of green to autoshow

Although not directly listed just about anywhere other than the mention above, I did see that they also had almost identical C-Max prototypes, both an Energi plug-in hybrid and just hybrid in the same shade of light green --- quite noticeable was the lack of trunk room behind the seats of the Energi...

Re: Excitement mounting for the Ford Focus Electric

Last week Ford announced that the Ford Focus Electric sedan will be available in North America next year - or did they really? They announced that a year or more ago, so why are people just now posting on their blogs saying Ford announced it last week? The Ford Focus Electric will be available to C...

Re: Order 2012 Focus online?

not many posts yet and perhaps none of us are in either NY or CA areas of the 'early' launch but has anyone actually placed an order for the '12 Focus EV ??

Re: Order 2012 Focus online?

Was not really surprised at the pricing (over on the LEAF forum we had a poll on where it might be -- a fairly large number got very close to what it was); I really did think a Focus EV would be my new EV but this confirms that I made the right choice, even with the '12 price increase for the car I ...

Re: Electric Car Tax Credit troubles

I wish the fed and state would stop giving tax reductions. They're pointless for the people who this is suppose to spur into buying these cars. Most middle income families do not owe enough taxes to get the full reduction. It's a travesty. I really wish these reductions would turn into a cash back ...
