FFE ...is it on the rebound? 407 sold in March!

Tue Apr 04, 2017 6:38 pm

woah ...used to be 100 per month typically..and I thought it was production constrained not lack of demand.

But the biggest surprise of the month was definitely the Ford Focus Electric! After 60 months in a row of selling 150 units (+/-99 copies), the new long ranger model finally arrived (115 miles – up from 76 via a 33.5 kWh battery), and with it – a sizable amount of customer orders that piled up over the past ~4 months.

Wonder how many of those sales were the new and improved 2017 model vs people taking advantage of the screaming deals available on leftover 2016s.....

I wonder how my orders are from Canadians in Ontario. The government rebate was bumped up to $14000 for electric cars which makes this car really affordable. I got mine just around $20k out the door after all the rebates and incentives.

Check the November - February sales, and follow up with April...

No one could get their hands on FFE's... It's the same sales rate, just crammed into a single month due to lack of supply. It will return back to normal (low) levels in June after the new builds have been satisfied.

Did they have crazy rebates in March to flush out all the remaining 2016 models?

Back to normal and low numbers last two months....

oh well that was wishful thinking that the '17 FFE with its increased range would spark more production

but again I tried to order one 4 months ago and they now claim there is no allocation anyhow.
