Default Are there residency requirements to get on the waitlists?

For example, I live in Wisconsin, but Chicago is the closest roll out market for the focus EV. Based on what everyone has read or learned about Ford's plans, or Nissan's roll out model, would I be denied by Ford or the dealerships from getting one of these vehicles, or even getting denied from the waiting list because I do not reside within the initial rollout market?

It's a fair question.

I do not live within range of a roll out city, but my local dealership is willing to give getting me an initial roll out vehicle a solid try.

They may very well be denied, but I certainly think that their muscle is worth more than mine as lone consumer in trying to get this accomplished. I would get in touch with a local dealer, hopefully they'll be interested in helping you out.

Obviously, concerns about bugginess/service issues/no-one local being able to help you with issues might be the biggest impediment here/ reason why Ford would say no. worth a try though. Good luck. let us know what they say.

Oh - perhaps worth noting that there are no residency requirements on the Volt, so it may come down to how the car is sold.

Reserve through Nissan or through dealers as GM did?

Definitely a significant number of the early Volts were long distance sells. Of course there the buyer could just drive it home on gas. I guess you could have it flatbedded to your locality. And make sure it is a flatbed. Towing an EV with wheels on the ground could be a disaster.
