Evening, all!

Quick question. If you had to wait for your FFE to be built - how long was that wait time? I've been quoted around three months, but I'm curious to see what time everyone actually waited for their EV.

Thanks!

I'm in Vancouver and put my order in on March 8, I was quoted just over 3 months as the shipping time is longer. I've gotten a build time frame for the week of May 8th, and a landed date of June 12th, so that 3 month time frame seems to be right.

Another thing I've noticed is that most of the build dates of the 2017 FFEs seem to be within the first week of each month, so it seems like they only have production for 2-3 days at the start of each month. So depending on when you order, if you catch the tail end of a production run or have to wait for the next one, that might play into the time frame as well.

Back in 2013 ordered mine in middle of Feb and received it at the end of May and there was no "shipping time" as my dealer is/was right across the street from the plant.

Hi Jas, how did you get your build time? From the dealer or using Ford's tracking website with vin number? Thanks.

If you can get your window sticker your build date is along the top edge.

From what I understand the Ford VIN tracking doesn't work for cars going to Canada, only the US and only after the car is built. For me, the dealer sent me a picture of their ordering system where they get a build week and a week timeframe for delivery as well.

I'd be interested in knowing as well. I placed my order on March 10th and I have no dates for build or delivery.

The only thing I have is my order number from the dealer (no VIN yet) and it's not showing up in COTUS.

The closest I have to an estimate is the dealer said "it could take 4 months or so".

EDIT: Whoops, I see Jas has already replied. Another question for you: when did you get your build/delivery estimates? My dealer had nothing up to last week.

I just took a look and I found out on March 22. I got a screenshot of it and it looks like it's from the same system the dealer used to give me the VIN.

I ordered in July 2014
Car built August 2014
Car delivered November 2014. (There was an issue that delayed delivery. Ford wouldn't say what the problem was but I'm fairly certain the battery failed some QC check.)
