Where is the 2017 Focus Electric???

Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:05 am

I heard a couple of months ago that the 2017 FFE started production but there still aren't any for sale. I talked to my local dealer and he told me that there aren't any 2017 FFEs on the assembly line or in transit in his tracking system. Does anyone have any idea what's going on with production of the 2017 FFE?

Am I correct in understanding that DCFC is standard, not an extra cost option?

I was able to "order" one a few days ago...everything seemed included
I added extra paint and leather ($1400) and was in the low 27k price after some ongoing rebates and 0% APR 48 months.

at this time I think this is just a dealer allocation and could take many months to receive.

At least they are taking orders which is progress as compared to last month.

I've been searching across the south-eastern part of the country, and there aren't any in dealerships. I asked a dealer to do a search yesterday, and they were able to corroborate what I'd seen, save for one FFE '17 that was being built for delivery to Tallahassee in three or four weeks. (They did find 3 2016s, however, still available.)

It appears that right now, if you have one built, you'll get it in a couple months. No telling when or if you can expect to actually see one sitting in a dealer's lot.

Mine is on order. Did it at the end of November, actually.

Delivery is set for sometime late Feb. No units will come sooner than that.

In December, my dealer told me the 2017 I've got reserved has been built and is awaiting delivery. I'll update when I know more (it should be any day now)

Any News? I spoke with a dealer saying there's one on the way. No set dates, could be several weeks.

What are people hearing on residuals and incentives. So far On 36 months and 12K miles 33% residual and $10,250 incentives ansd $1000 lease loyalty cash. Interest rate of 2.1% Branford Ford has 3 on order. Nothing else has hit the ground yet. The cars have hit floorplan so dealers are paying or soon to be paying interest.

I just called. Mine's still at the factory (hasn't been shipped yet). We're not sure what cars are coming to the Toronto Auto show yet.

They did tell me that they're putting the 0% and -$3500 on the price of the 2017's

So the car's going to be another smoking deal. I don't know when the Bolt'a will hit the CDN market. Looks like the FFE will be the value leader for a good 6 months until the Bolt drops.

For those in NY state, legislature has passed a law to offer up to $2000 rebate "point of sale" for EV and plug-ins, and a sales tax exemption. NYSEDRA is in charge of implementing the plan and forms etc and have to get it done likely by the budget deadline of April 1st 2017. For the Focus that represents a savings of $3700 approx. It is not retroactive. So I'm delaying my leasing a new focus and will extend my current lease.
