Order 2012 Focus online?

Some news articles on the Ford Focus are talking about the ability to order the 2012 Focus online:
Although consumers can order a 2012 Focus online now, it won't be available in showrooms until at least late summer and the electric version won't be available until year's end, said Paul Witt, a Ford spokesman who brought the preview version Monday to...
Although it doesn't specifically say anything about the Ford Focus Electric version, I hadn't seen this before so I had to go to the Ford configurator and check for myself.

And, much to my dissapointment, it of course does not include the Ford Focus Electric, although it got me all excited about the Ford Focus EV when I saw all of the features that are available!

The Ford Focus comes with something called MyKey, which enables the car to remember things based on which key is being used - you can now give your teenager a key and the car can have a maximum speed set etc.

There's lots of buzz out there about whether or not the Ford Focus Electric will be available for pre-sale like the Nissan Leaf was.
Considering all the issues that Nissan had, and is STILL having with delivering on those promises, I think it would be safe to assume that Ford will not offer pre-sales on the Ford Focus Electric, at least not until they have them built and ready to ship (which of course wouldn't really be a pre sale at all).

It's over, it's finally over - the wait for the Ford Focus Electric is finally over, thanks to this Ford Focus Electric forum I found out that on November 2 Ford will be taking online orders for the Ford Focus Electric.

According to the Ford Electric Vehicles facebook page, Ford will be releasing details on the build and pricing form for online ordering of the Ford Focus Electric Forum on November 2nd!

Wow - super excited about the chance to finally order the Ford Focus Electric! Although some of my excitement could change depending on what the price of the Ford Focus Electric will be...

Thanks for keeping me on top of things, Ford Focus Electric Forum!

Doesn't on-line ordering kinda leave the dealer out in the cold (or does make ready etc make up for it) ?

$39,995 with destination charges. $995 more for leather. Add a joke of a sales tax in California makes it a $45,000 car. Even with the tax credit, this is too much.

So bummed. I guess I got caught up in the hype of a $30,000 car.

I guess it is a Honda Civic CNG to replace my 2004 Civic Hybrid (199,000 miles) for me.

:shock: :x

Was not really surprised at the pricing (over on the LEAF forum we had a poll on where it might be -- a fairly large number got very close to what it was); I really did think a Focus EV would be my new EV but this confirms that I made the right choice, even with the '12 price increase for the car I should now get hopefully in early December. Best case scenario, we won't see any Focus EV's in IL until at least mid year. The last straw I guess are the quite muted colors available --- what no red ??? perhaps other shades will become available as it rolls out throughout the U.S.; heck I think the Volt is even available in red ?

I'm still looking forward to the C-Max Energi which may end up being available about the same time as the Focus EV will be in the midwest as I'll need a bigger companion to the LEAF which may be in my garage for close to 7 months before it passes a Focus EV on the roads of Chicago.

Too expensive for my bank account, I would much prefer to buy American if at all possible, but looks like a Leaf for me. If Ford and GM really wanted to get people into the EV ranks, why not price competitively, especially knowing that Japanese quality is still superior?

not many posts yet and perhaps none of us are in either NY or CA areas of the 'early' launch but has anyone actually placed an order for the '12 Focus EV ??
