Friday I got a text congratulating me on going over 5,000 miles on the Focus. In fact I've just gone over 1,500.
I left my car at the Richmond, VA airport (RIC) while taking a trip to Michigan for a few days. I started getting texts one an hour to plug in the car "Ford Focus Electric has limited performance due to cold temperatures. Please plug the vehicle in." I think the temperature at the airport was in the 40s.
There is one worse level I think, "severely limited performance".
I went on line and unchecked the option to get texts for "limited performance" but it kept sending them anyway, even all night through.
I was a little concerned as this was the first cold weather it had experienced, but when I got back to the airport it still showed 45 miles, the same as when I had left it.
I think this is a fantastically engineered car and Ford is to be congratulated for trying to integrate advanced interfaces and communications with the owner. There are a few glitches that I believe will be fixed and amended as we go.
