Re: 2012 FFE Trailer hitch

Thanks for the info. Any chance we could get a picture of this hitch? Where did you get the hitch? How much for it?

Re: VIN

Even though I have had the VIN for a month and the car was allegedly manufactured August 6, I still cannot register it on the myfordmobile app. It says it is an invalid VIN. No hurry, as long as it works after I take delivery. RW... you can't complete the mfm registration until you have the car, pa...

Re: Ford Focus Electric sales numbers

They are not willing to commit the budget on advertising until the BEV vehicles have been on the road and demonstrated their dependability, economy and popular demand. I think you have it there. Ford's doesn't want 10,000 of these things running around until the technology has proven itself on the ...

Can you describe how you close the door "properly" because some Ford videos actually show it being closed improperly.

Re: Single Speed Transmission

So for my commute and when I am in the midst of traffic, I am constantly shifting from drive to neutral if I want to coast down the back side of the bridges and then if I need to slow down, I'll go back to drive, and if a light changes and I need to stop, I drop to low. It is very effective and sav...

Re: Is the heater/defroster a range killer?

All things being equal, generating heat is a more energy intensive than cooling, which simply involves moving heat out of the air you want "cooled." Although the heater in the FFE does have an electric compressor, it is not an electric resistance heater. The descriptions are vague but sounds like so...

Re: VIN

I should mention I'm kind of winging it here, trying to figure it out and make the best of it. Working with electronics, radios, and rechargeable batteries I was always intrigued with the concept of an electric car but didn't think an EV would be practical. But studying what Ford has done, the batt...

Re: Changes for the 2013 FFE?

Spoke with a product specialist from Ford. He says the seat color has not changed for the 2013. He looked at the pics I was referring to and said "yeah those pics are not accurate at all." It would not be unprecedented for Ford to do an update via USB. They just did one for MFT on the Edge and other...

Re: VIN

Jason updated me this weekend to say Ford has a production or build date for my car of August 6. :shock: Need a call back from best buy to schedule survey of my garage. Dominion Power will be at my home on August 7 to install a new meter as I enrolled in the EV Plus Home program. This meter will ke...

Changes for the 2013 FFE?

I was playing around with the "build" function on the Ford site for the 2013 FFE, and I noted that the seat colors look much darker than last year, although it has the same name, "stone." I wonder if it is just the way that pic looks or have they actually gone with a darker color?
