Yesterday afternoon I was in Richmond, Virginia and had a little spare time so I stopped by Richmond Ford to inquire about the FFE. I met with Jason and he led me back to the service area where they were just finishing up some initial service on a demonstrator. It had not even been washed yet but I got to drive it a few miles.
Jason is enthused and knowledgeable about the FFE and I was a bit overwhelmed with the level of technology. Living where I do the nav system is pointless but the climate control and audio system I could easily learn to love. The interior is very upscale and very comfortable. I think the ride is a bit firm but it is a compact car.
At some point in the future I may buy one but having been burned once by being an early adopter I will wait for things to shake out. I am 80 miles from the dealer and that is just too far to deal with service issues.
I think Ford has built a car that is spot on for this young EV market. It has great looks and the level of technology that this market will understand and appreciate. Ford has a huge resource of engineering talent and I believe they can make the FFE a real success.
