Default Fords rollout phases explained

If you thought that all the dealers in a rollout state that have met Fords sales requirement will be getting the cars at the same time. Then you are mistaken. While I was doing a search for dealers that are EV certified by Ford, I found out that not all the dealerships in one state will be part of the same phase of the rollout. The dealerships phase number is depended on when they met Fords EV certification. I did talk to one Chicago area dealership that was just completing its certification and was assigned phase 3. He did admit that FFE deliveries were estimated to be in early 2013. Each dealership gets allotment of FFE. If a dealership has sold its allotment, then ordering from a phase 2 or 3 may result in a quicker delivery. This is because once a dealership has used up its allotment it has to wait until a new one is assigned to it. If a dealership sells more than their allotment of cars may result in a longer delivery time.
Another thing was that most dealerships in the greater Chicago area I found were already certified EV or in the process doing so. But only three of these are part of phase 1B, and will be the first to get FFE. The good news is that most of the Ford dealerships will be qualified to sell and service the new Electric cars.

Phase 1A: California, New Jersey, and New York.

Phase 1B: Arizona, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, North Carolina, Oregon, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

Phase 2: New Mexico, Indiana, Ohio, South Carolina, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Hawaii

Phase 1B: .... Illinois ....
So basically, it may end up being over a year after I took delivery of my Nissan LEAF (12/23/11) until we see many FFE's in Chicago? ... that's great if you can wait not so much if your car needs replacing and/or if waiting to trade later makes it drops in depreciation, etc. Have started to really see many more Chevy Volt's around but new LEAF's are still scarce ... hopefully it's pent up demand for those with FFE orders (or trying to order) through a Ford dealer.

Most likely there may be many Chicago phase 2 dealerships in the area, were the delay wouldn't be so long. I got a feeling the dealership I order my car from is a phase 1B, or 2, because he had his charging stations already installed back in March. When the charging station goes in is a good indication of when they got their EV certification. One of the possible reasons for the large number of dealerships going for the EV certification may because the Plug-in Hybrid 2013 Fusion Energi, and C-MAX Energi may require it. These are plug in hybrids like the volt, hopefully priced at a lower price point.

Only two dealerships that I talked to claimed to be a phase 1B dealership for FFE.

Joe Rizza Ford in Orland Park

Roesch Ford

Bensenville, IL 60106
(630) 279-6000 Phase 1B

A quick way to determine is when they installed the charging stations. If they installed them back in Febuary or earlier it could be a good sign that this is a phase 1B, or 2 dealership.
