Default Re: Focus Electric Launch to be Scrubbed…Again?

The reason why Ford hasn't launch the Focus Electric still continues as a mystery. But apparently some of the car customers have order have been produced but not delivered. There are possible reasons for this.

1 There is some defect in design of the car that needs to correction.
2nd A vendor is having problems manufacturing parts for the car.
3rd The final version of the software is not ready for the cars.

A defect in the car design is the least likely because they are apparently making the cars.
A vendor problem would explain low volume delivery, but would not explain why no deliveries have been made.
The software not being ready would explain the cars being made but not delivered.

Ford may make some deliveries in May, so that still can claim a spring launch for 1A. Then do mass deliveries in July setting an all time sales record for any electric car. Ford may have standing orders for easily over 1000 cars. As more areas open up for orders sales could dramatically increase. Ford has invest alot of time and money into the electric vehicles program. So they are serious with the program. Or could the slow roll out be caused by something else?
