Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

Sylvain excellent! I have a feeling your record will stand for a while. Hmm, have you signed up on Ford's site, you've probably unlocked an "achievement" with that. Do I read that right 4hours 48 minutes of drive time? That's a long time in the saddle, what did you have going for audio? Did you get ...

Re: FFE Battery Size

It is because of their broken registration system. I tried to register twice couple of months back. I am still waiting for the moderator to activate my account. If you do not allow the forum to expand, it dies a slow death. Thanks for the heads up IGH, sent the admin an email, hopefully they will g...

Re: FFE Battery Size

Speaking of which - Charged Up, you did a lot of posting on FordFocusElectric.com. It looks to me like that forum is dying? I was working with Lyle Dennis on that forum, but he wanted to sell it, so now I am doing posts for Inside EVs when I can. I had hoped to see that forum and this one combine, ...

Re: What Is Your Favorite Ford Focus EV Color?

I think on an EV a "light" color really makes sense, especially if you live in a warmer climate. Trying to cool down a car that is taking on beaucoup solar gain wastes the juice. I bought a Viridian Joule for the Volt which is a silver/green hue. The family insisted that the next car have "some colo...

Re: 110 Miles + CLUB

If you want to try and "set the range record" you are probably going to have to try and keep the speed between 15 and 25 mph. Drag increases geometrically, and above 55 mph it really eats up the juice. This chart for the Leaf demonstrates this very nicely: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/wiki/index.php?...

Re: FFE Battery Size

I had the opportunity to speak with an engineer on the FFE, and asked what portion of the battery is being used and the answer was "we are using between 19 and 20 kWh."

So 85% seems like a pretty good number to use.

Somewhere on fordfocuselectric.com there is a post from that conversation.

Re: I installed my own charging station last week

Whit the nice thing about this charger is that the cord with the j1772 plug is nice and thick so it stays cool while charging... As opposed to the other SPX charger with the round black box. Did you pay $750 for the charger? It should work with the Focus EV, but then again the Volt had some issues w...

Re: what is driving range for the new ALL ELECTRIC

I cannot find any information on the range.... Other details like the voltage, current, size and weight of the battery pack for the new car.... how about releasing some of this info. What will be the cost to replace this battery, as we all know the average lifetime of Lithium Ion batteries are only...
