exciting! Where are you located? California?

I haven't yet ordered one, but I live in Washington and not in the Seattle metropolis so it will be while before I can get a Ford Focus Electric :(

Cool! What color? Any options? What's it replace? Do you have an EVSE yet?

I also have ordered - 11/29/11, Platinum white, leather seats. Ordered from Schultz Ford Lincoln in Nanut, NY. Paid MSRP. I live in Rhode Island and will have the vehicle trucked up here. Received a VIN number in mid February, was told the vehicle was completed in the 3rd week of March. Was told the vehicle would be delivered the week of 4/9/2012. Still waiting.

I have ordered a level 2 upgrade EVSE of a Leaf EVSE from evseupgrade.com They will take my Ford 120v EVSE and see if they can upgrade it and exchange it for the Leaf EVSE. Total cost $287.00. It is only a 3.84 kW 16 amp unit, however, that is all I currently need. (If they cannot upgrade the unit I will pay $1087.00 for the unit. I am hopeful they will be able to upgrade the unit, because if they don't it is a bad deal..... :x )

This vehicle is not replacing any vehicle. I currently drive 20+K per year commuting and drive a Toyota Avalon @ 25 avg MPG. My commute is 80 miles round trip so this is a perfect vehicle to reduce my carbon footprint and save a ton of money. ($3,200.00 current annual gas outlay, estimate $600.00 electric outlay with the Focus Electric.) I will keep the Avalon as my distance automobile.
2012 Ford Focus Electric. Delivered 5/29/2012

Congratulation! Sounds like you will have it soon. Thermal battery management will be handy with your four seasons. Interesting about the EVSE Upgrade. I plan to use an SPX EVSE for road trips, but it is bulky and heavy to carry. Please let us know how yours works out.

I got the glass color with leather. Do not have a charger yet as we are planning to move in about a month and currently rent. My current car is a 2006 Prius which I love.

I'm a real estate appraiser, work from home and do short range driving every day. So electric would work fine although I am interested in the Fusion plug in hybrid that is coming out next year. Our second car is a 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid.

Hey Nal67,

So exciting that you are getting a new Ford Focus Electric soon. You are so lucky! Would it be possible for you to post some pics of your ride for the ford focus electric forum when you get it. Another thing I am always curious to hear about from other users is their planned use for the USB ports and AV plugins. Do you have any big plans for those accessories. Please do let us know your favorite bells and whistles on your Focus ev as well. So cool that you are getting a Ford electric soon. Also really wondering how the "glass" color will look in person. Keep us posted and congratulations!

Mine supposed to be delivered to the dealer on Long Island May 7! I drive to dealer May 10 and trailer it back to Charlotte, NC May 12.
I've got an SPX Level II 30 amp at home and a Schneider Level II 30 amp at my Dad's 79 miles away.

Whit - that is so exciting! Have you been told what order you are in? Are you the first one to make your reservation for the Ford Focus Electric?
