Re: Electric car sales are flat

You do have to wonder how much 'actual' pent-up demand there is for pure EV's -- noted over on the LEAF forum that today marks the 1-year anniversary for online reservations and of course some people (including myself) have no clue as to when we can actually get one! At least Ford has Chicago listed...

Re: Energized to drive electric

One follow up comment -- they should add a $5.00 /gal price comparison column as that appears where we are headed, note that the copyright was 2011 but we haven't seen $3.00/gal gas since just about the end of 2010 (reference gasbuddy.com but I'm sure there are others) here in Chicago I saw $4.19/ga...

Ford's Shanghai Auto Show

A few more 'stylized' photos -- note 5 year wait in China! http://www.chinacartimes.com/2011/04/09/fords-shanghai-auto-show-evs-suvs-mpvs/ This one still shows the Aston Martin style grill which some folks were speculating may not show up on the production version; just a rumor or something else?

Re: Smart Electric no competition for Ford Focus Electric

My expectation for the Focus EV is to have at least the same range (~100 miles) as the LEAF as well as be priced fairly closely otherwise they may not have enough takers who will make a direct comparison between the two -- unlike the Volt, the Focus EV is probably the closet (soon to market). On the...

Re: Trunk with battery pack in the Ford Focus Electric

You also have to remember that the Focus EV will be the hatchback model with folding rear seats -- for us we would only need the truck space for errand running (with just two on board) so would simply pull the package shelf cover out (appears to be very similar to the one on our Mazda3 5-door hatch)...

Re: Ford Focus Econetic first official pictures

efficient diesel engine get the car an estimated 80 MPG!! Of course, we're all thinking we'll believe it when we see it, but a car like this could really make a dent in the Ford Focus Electric Vehicle sales - perhaps that's partly why Ford is keeping it to the European market where there are other ...

Re: Focus EV Release Cities

If I had to guess, I'd say the cold winters is one of the reasons Chicago wasn't listed for the Leaf - and could be why people there, or the rest of us, perceive that people in Chicago wouldn't be real pro-electric vehicle. It'll be interesting to see the sales figures of the Ford Focus Electric ve...
