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: Focus availability

Apparently they also ignored the initial launch city list they published as well by stating 'first few months' (Chicago was among them) ... really too bad, but if the car simply isn't ready everyone else needs to wait ...

Re: Ford Focus Electric causes Nissan to worry

Especially in light on the LEAF's price increases for the 2012 model; if the Focus EV undercuts it when it's finally introduced ... it does look at least for now that the LEAF will actually 'beat' the Focus EV to the Chicago market as still no news from Ford

Nissan Drive Electric Tour Dates

Posted this over on the LEAF forum but as many wait for the Focus EV this is the only other 'affordable' EV in the market today (although I guess you can also preorder a Mitsu iMiev but no tests drives yet) -- coming to Chicago August 26-28 as well as several other cities not in the original launch:...

Re: Where have these people been?

True, it's old news but to be honest, Ford hasn't updated ANYTHING on when, how much, equipment levels, etc. so these rehashed stories are the only thing we're seeing. It almost looks like the Mitsu MiEV may beat the Focus EV to Chicago and either may beat the LEAF so it's still wide open -- I have ...

Re: Win an iPod Touch 4G!

1. Location: Chicago, IL, USA 2. I am interested in the Ford Focus Electric vehicle because Chicago is one of Ford's launch cities for it ... part of the forgotten 36 states ignored by Nissan 3. One thing I would like to know about the Ford Focus Electric is how competitive it will be against the Ni...

Re: Ford: Expect Electric Cars To Account For 10%-25% Of Sal

Thanks klaus ... just wish there was more info out there, not that I'm desperate or anything but I have been checking alternatives as better weather seems to be finally coming to Chicago. Last weekend (in the rain) had an opportunity to drive a Fiat 500 Sport (they expect an EV version in 2012) and ...

Re: Ford: Expect Electric Cars To Account For 10%-25% Of Sal

Is the quote, of the Ford Focus Electric only being available next year, in that video you posted? I didn't see it... It's about 15 to 20 seconds in, wait until after the Jag ad to play ... background shows Bill Ford at the podium Ahhh ... I also posted something on the AutoWeek site for this askin...

Re: Ford: Expect Electric Cars To Account For 10%-25% Of Sal

Not sure this was heard as an actual quote but this video from AutoWeek states the Ford Focus EV will be built next year ... have to wait to see if this was a misquote but I plan to post a comment on the AutoWeek site to ask for clarification ... the info about Bill Ford is right at the beginning of...

Re: Fuel Factor - Are EVs really worth it?

Here is more recent video on the 'test' but more brief -- no mention of even the Focus ICE this time, they also say that the LEAF and Volt will be available in Chicago in December -- hopefully the Focus EV will beat that but again no new news out of Ford: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2011/05/03/gas-a...
