Re: Why is Ford taking so long? It's not rocket science ...

hey red, is Chicago no longer a launch city (is there an updated list) or did you get tired of waiting - how is the Leaf search going ? 'rfruth' -- I would guess 'launch city' is a misnomer as Ford said that the Focus EV would show up in CA and NY first by year end and then 'others' later -- I did ...

Re: Why is Ford taking so long? It's not rocket science ...

Have you noticed the new trend in EV news? It seems the "negative" less enthusiastic side is growing and could Ford be hedging their bets about the actual introduction date and of course price? As a Wisconsin resident who has been waiting quite literally years to be allowed to purchase an EV I find...

Ford (don't ask don't touch) Focus EV

Still only "months" away and still only prototypes (albeit velcro and tape as well... see below) ... another opportunity to clarify direction lost. I have a daily Google search for news on the new C-Max as I've all but given up on the Focus EV; and this from Ford's home state. Again, if you're not r...

Re: Chevy Volt vs Ford Focus Electric

My how fast things change -- over on the Nissan Leaf forum, there was a speculation on a Chevy dealer that had 87 Volt's in stock and was looking to unload them ... may be simply some hype but obviously selling under list is the opposite direction of the first post on this thread in January: "I thou...

Re: Hurry up and produce the Ford Focus Electric!

Hey Ford, Here's a tip! Get going and make the car and start selling it! There's plenty of us that want to buy one. Look at what Nissan has done and learn from their mistakes. Take pre-orders, take lots of them from anybody that will pay a $99 down payment. Build the Focus Electric like mad men so ...

Re: Ford Focus Electric causes Nissan to worry

When is the Nissan Leaf due in Chicago? I was pre-registered (April '10) for the LEAF and those who did in Chicago were all able to get RFQ's in starting 7/25; placed an actual confirmed order yesterday and expect the actual car Cayenne Red SL) in 3 to 4 months so hopefully before end of '11. The d...

Re: Who was waiting for the Focus EV but is now buying a LEA

At what point do you have to commit to buying the Nissan Leaf? If there's a pull out plan, then I think it makes sense to keep your name on the list up to the last minute. That gives you as much time as you can get to make a final decision. If something changes with Ford by that point, then you can...

Who was waiting for the Focus EV but is now buying a LEAF?

Especially in light of the most recent Ford Focus EV release notice for just some CA and NY areas and NOT launch cities --- At this point, I was on the initial reservation list for a LEAF (4/20/2010) and Nissan opened up IL for orders early so have confirmed delivery (as of just a day or so ago, the...
