Does anybody know anything about a waiting list for the Focus EV?
I am hoping that Ford follows the same method as Nissan did with the Leaf. By offering pre orders of the Leaf, Nissan attached cars to owners rather than dealerships. That means that once the cars were available to be sold, the dealerships were competing for the orders and people were getting good deals on their Leafs - sometimes even below MSRP.
The way of the Chevy Volt was to attach cars to dealerships so people were competing for the cars and paying $5k or even $10K above MSRP to get one of the first cars!!
I guess Ford can charge a premium on the Ford Focus Electric for as long as the market can handle it... and rest assured there will be csome people willing to pay extra to get one of the first cars.
Jay Leno might be one of those people, although like the Leaf given to Lance Armstrong, Jay might be the celebrity spokesmodel that gets the car way before it's available to market for us normal people?
