Default Re: Get LEAF Now or Wait for Focus Electric

If you are in New York (judging by your online identity here), you'll probably have to wait either way. All the truly colder states weren't supposed to start the process of getting them (actually converting reservations into orders until the Fall 2011 / Winter) and those plans were before Nissan had production issues - making me think folks will be lucky to order in the Fall 2011 for the cold states.

Right now, its not a decision you have to make - just keep your reservation with the Leaf and see how the year progresses. We'll get pricing, actual production volume targets for those first few months from Ford and a better handle on how Ford is going to roll out the Focus Electric (they going to do it like GM, where some of the Dealers are asking $10k over retail, or something like Nissan where the vehicles are allocated to the buyers and the dealers get to compete for the deliveries giving retail or less prices).

Then you can make your decision knowing things alot better. The Leaf's the northern states get will almost certainly be 2012's, so it'll be interesting to see what tweaking occurs with those as well.

I'm interested in both as well and will be waiting to see how this year unfolds with regards to both vehicles - and with 2012 there are other plug-in vehicles that will be landing as well.
