Rumor of new FFE

Doesn't look like there is much solid evidence, but a few outlets are running stories: https://insideevs.com/news/545461/ford-focus-electric-hatchback-report/ https://www.motor1.com/news/545093/ford-focus-electric-rumors/ Even if it is true, seems unlikely we would get it in the US....crossovers are...

FFEs use the NMC based chemistry. I believe the cells are LGX P1, which is what the first gen Chevy Volt uses. I think the second gen Volt used LGX P1.5 cells.
Thanks!

FFE Battery Chemistry?

Does anyone know the chemistry used in the FFE batteries? I'm guessing it is lithium nickel manganese cobalt oxide (NMC) or something similar (maybe lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide (NCA)). I know lithium iron phosphate (LFP) was also around at the time (A123) but I don't think it was being used...

Re: Long term support - keep or sell?

Just curious. What are you thinking for reasonable? Great question. Some numbers: "Shift" gave me quote for $4200 - no thanks, I'll drive it until the wheels fall off KBB says private party sale is above $8k ("high" number) Searching listings I found several comparable FFE's lis...

Re: Long term support - keep or sell?

The Ioniq 5 looks very interesting, can't wait to see that one in person. I've listed my FFE for sale and placed a model 3 SR+ on order (Jan Delivery). If the FFE sells for a decent price then I'll go through with it....if I can't get anything reasonable for the FFE then I'll cancel the order and ju...

Re: Long term support - keep or sell?

Yep, that's my thought as well. Still love the car....drove it 66 miles today (mainly highway and with the AC on)....guess-0-meter says I still have 20 left....on a 76 mile car that is 7.5 years old and has 57k miles......but I've decided I'm gonna get out while I still can (resale is still good). T...

Re: Numerous Issues - HELP!

are you still having 12V battery issues? I remember a few years back the dealer addressed this with mine after I had a few dead 12V issues. Can't recall if it was just software or if they replaced anything physical, but I haven't had a 12V issue in years....even when I let it sit for a week or more....

Long term support - keep or sell?

My 2014 FFE has been awesome and I still love it. But it is approaching the end of the 8 year factory warranty and I have serious questions about long term support for these cars since so few were ever sold. I can easily see an electrical system issue cropping up that Ford wants more to fix than the...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

UPDATE - I have my car back!! ... ... -Dealer replaced charge port wiring harness and now all appears to be working ... I can not believe $1200 for a wiring harness? I think wiring harness is a passive component, how to get it broken? Was the defective wiring harness shown to you? Yep, agreed on al...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

Glad you got it back. I wouldnt expect anything from ford. I know that feeling of getting the car back and loving how it drives. That feeling lasted about 4 days for me though. LOL. Enjoy it! Yep, not expecting anything, but I will at least know they have pissed off a long time and loyal customer w...
