Another aspect for flexibility includes whether you can charge it at home (those who have ready access to an L2 charger) or even work if you're a bit longer than the 50 mile rule. Those out in the...

Actually -- the C-Max Energi gets only the $3,750 Fed Tax Credit (it's not from Ford but requires you to have at least that much tax liability to take advantage of it) and no other incentives...

C-Max Ford Partner X-pricing

I did some checking into the availability of X-pricing on both the C-Max Hybrid and Energi and while I thought the Energi would not be included (as the FFE wasn't) it shows up now -- of course the...

Can relate on the first front --- although different make/model as well as this raise concerns on another Ford product.

First front -- bought a new '09 VW Routan on a 'cash for clunkers' deal at...

C-Max test drive

Well, I got to test drive a Ford C-Max (hybrid version) earlier today and came away fairly impressed. This dealer had 7 in stock, mostly SE's but drove a fully loaded white SEL with the pano roof,...

Our LEAF's have the same unused ignition switch (steering column is from a Versa) but it's also covered with a plastic plug -- I'm sure to save tooling costs, etc. Ford simply uses the standard Focus...

Still somewhat unique ...

for that 'potential' EV buyer; the scenario in the midwest (where I'm from) or other areas, may be quite different, in this case I believe it's their only car, etc., etc. so not totally surprised.

We use the Schneider EVlink unit for our LEAF, absolutely compatible with what's needed for your FFE. Nissan had a similar 'deal' with another EVSE Mfg. which always seemed to be on the pricey side....

Re: Fords rollout phases explained

Re: Ford Focus additional markets and states

Let me know how successful you are ... just like the LEAF rollout, it's doubtful that unless they've gotten trained on it, they'll say no but doesn't hurt to try if you have the time. Just like...

Re: Ford Focus additional markets and states

Yes I did the same thing. I order from Chicago, and I live in Wisconsin. The dealership is about 97 miles from my house. It could make it all the way if drove it just under 45 MPH. But I will play it...

Re: Focus Electric Launch to be Scrubbed…Again?

Ha, don't hold your breath, Chicago was supposed to be an initial launch city but that didn't happen. We have seen a LOT more Ford TV ad's as of late that feature both the FFE and new Fusion Hybrid...

Re: Payoff for Efficient Cars takes Years

Re: Payoff for Efficient Cars takes Years

It should be noted that even if you do not have enough tax liability in one year (oh to be in such a boat!) to claim the entire tax credit, the credit can be carried over from year to year.

There...

Re: Payoff for Efficient Cars takes Years

+1 on cost calculations; plus the extra state level incentives for EV's (which can be quite significant) will vary as well, here in IL we get an up to $4K cash rebate (10% of MSRP), plus lower...

Re: ChargePoint and Other Shortsighted Thinkers

Partially true -- EV driver's can't be as spontaneous as ICE driver's simply because there is little to no charging infrastructure out there today, free or otherwise (at least here around Chicago)!...

Re: Is the FFE Really $5k More Than the Leaf
