Default Ford to Start Shipping Focus Electric to Dealers

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Ford will begin shipping Focus Electrics to 67 dealers this weekend. 350 Focus Electric cars will be sent to dealers in California, New Jersey and New York over the next couple weeks.

Manufacturing executives are said to have “signed off on the decision on Friday.” The Tribune says Ford declined to comment on the news and the sources asked not to be named because the plans are confidential...

OK Charged up.... I think this is a real one. Chicago Trib double, double, double checks its stories.
What intrigues me is the number 350 automobiles. That is not to far off our guess of 70 dealers wirh average 3 allotments per dealer. We also know some select dealers received significantly larger allotments.
Finally we will start to see these in the street..... Maybe, even in my garage...

This is fantastic news.
Until customers actually get their cars will make me a true believer.
CA, NY, and NJ are area 1A roll out states. That will soon be receiving their first cars.
A good question is when is zone 1B open for new orders? Could it start as soon as June 1st?
When will zone 1B start getting FFE deliveries also? Could this be late August?
When zone 1B opens may be determined by order volume.

I think Ford will ship between 800 and 2000 FFE this year. Some of these will be 2013 model year. If you get your car in August, September or later, it most likely will be 2013 FFE. This could be when the second rollout could start.

The piece reads that the actual shipping will be at the end of 2012, and these are just for dealer demos and a few key customers.

Did not see anything in there that suggested that shipping will be at the end of 2012. Seems quite clear that they are in started shipping this weekend. Where did you read "at the end of 2012?"

I'm sure someone on the forum in lucky roll-out #! will know by today or tomorrow if cars are available I think they will be too.
