Once again, Ford could get squeezed out of the electric vehicle market. They really need to release details on the 2012 Ford Focus Electric and get it to market!
Nissan has announced that the 2012 Nissan Leaf orders are to begin in Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey and New York on October 3rd.
Nissan has now delivered over 7000 of the Nissan leafs to the USA, and intends to add more states by the end of the eyar - including Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island.
In the UK, a similar expansion is underway, with now over 32 locations equipped to sell and service the Nissan Leaf.
I wonder how many locations in the USA are ready to service the Ford Focus Electric yet? Nissan is clearly capitalizing on the first movers, and I think the Ford Focus Electric is losing sales because of it.
