Re: Ford Electrified Vehicles Making Solid Gains

Ok...while i am still atop my soap box...

1. The EV Focus is not really that competitive in the market. It and the eGolf are great because their cars with a normal look to them with little tweaks for aero. The leaf has had a fast charge for years, as does the eGolf, but GM and Ford decided not to put them in any of their vehicles for some odd reason.

If Ford just started to work on a new design, i bet it takes about 5 years, which means their gonna announce in 2019 they have this amazing CUV Electric which will be late to the table. Their going to get some customers who are loyal to Ford, but the EV community which are the consumers who they should be winning over, will have already went through either GM or Tesla's doors for their cars.

Regarding Focus not offering fast charging, they do with the 2017 Focus EV. You can get 75miles of charge in 30min. I think that's state of the art. Even previous year was pretty quick as well.

Re: Ford Electrified Vehicles Making Solid Gains

Focus EV also picked up some additional range and saw a sizable price drop since introduction. It's a better EV than it was but certainly low on the appeal factor.
