Default Are you currently buying or considering another EV?

I figured I would contribute to the discussion even though there are not many people signed up right now.

I have a $99 reservation in for the LEAF, but it looks like the Focus will now be available at the same time later in 2011 for me. Would much rather buy the Ford now, would like to see Ford start a waiting list or start taking deposits now so I can make a final decision.

I dont have any money down on a car, but we just saw the Volt at the auto show and might consider it when it comes to our state, I dont think you can put money on a waiting list for the car, just give it to a dealer and would rather not do that.

I put a down deposit on a Volt and was 5th in line. But, that was when GM and others were saying the Volt was going to cost $30,000.
Then, the price shock $42,000 (and that was with the tax reduction).
I hope Ford stays around $30k AND adopts Nissan's model where they take the reservations, not the dealer.

Silly me! I put a deposit on an Aptera 3 years ago. I think it is time to switch. Does anyone know if Ford is taking reservation deposits? If so, where do I go?

I put a deposit down on the Nissan Leaf back on 4/20 and was told to expect ordering in December 2010. That came and went and then got the email like everyone else in the Tier 2 states that ordering was moved back until late summer 2011. I'm in Raleigh, NC, one of the initial roll-out cities for the Focus Electric and if it's priced close to the same as the LEAF, I'll go with the Focus instead.

My money is down for a Nissan Leaf but like NC Florida has been moved to "late summer"
and Orlando is an initial "city" for the Focus. We shall see how this shakes out.

Default Re: Are you currently buying or considering another EV?

so here is my challenge to ford: build a car like the volt...make sure the battery has a range of 100 miles....make sure you have the gasoline option and a solar re-charge option...i will not buy a car in montana that only runs on electricity...we will never have enough charging stations in a state like ours with our large distances to drive...
i am a FORD fan...this is all i drive...i am holding on to my 1991 ford escort until i get the "FORD ESCORT SOLAR ELECTRIC"....i know you guys can do....you where the first and you will be the last car manufactuer in the world...because you are the BEST....
