I noticed the 2018 FFE is up on the Ford website. It claims to have a 35kw battery. Is this different than the 2017 battery?

The 2017 has 33.5 but I recall seeing 35kwh on Ford's site for 2017 once too. Probably the same battery.

Canadian Website: 33.5kWh liquid-cooled Lithium - Ion battery
US Website: 35 kWh liquid-cooled, lithium-ion battery

It was the same typo/error/mistake/difference for the FFE 2017.

Don't forget to factor in the US/Canadian conversion rate. :D

Is there any other known differences with the 2018 FFE vs the 2017?

I believe the only difference is the paint color options. I'm more curious as to what happens for 2019 when they shut down the factory mid 2018.

I'm seeing big discounts on remaining 2017 FFEs at local dealers compared to the prices on new 2018 FFE on the way to dealers, so there if there isn't any improvements on the 2018's sounds like the remaining new 2017's are a better deal?

I also saw a used 2017 FFE at a local dealer with about 5K miles, but they want $22K - a new 2017 with the dealer discounts and $10K tax credit+CA rebate would be way less than that, so shouldn't a used 2017 FFE be closer to $15K-17K since the tax credit+rebate is already gone?

Not seeing discounts in the LA area for the 2017.
