Re: Ford Focus Electric Delayed - except in CA, NY
There is no crisis at Ford, it's simply supply and demand. To date our demand for the non-electric Focus far outweighs the supply. Ford and most of it's suppliers are working 6 10's on that vehicle alone. Remember automakers are trying to find that fine line of supply these days. They don't want dealers lots to be overloaded with product and this being a new product (Focus) they need to see the markets response. I could sell 1-2 Focus a day for the next 30 days if I had them.
Being in Michigan I can drive past the Michigan Assembly Plant (Focus plant) and see the rail cars and trucks being loaded. They are doing their best to get this vehicles to market and the same will be true with the EF. Trust me if Alan Mulally could wave a magic wand, these would be sitting on dealers lots TODAY!
