    I'm guessing the Volt should be next.

    The Volt is already there. $2500.00 below invoice, + $2000.00 rebate, + 0% for 72mos. Hows that?

    is that 29200 + or including the TAX rebate of 7500 as a lease the tax can go towards the car price and is the purchase price now 29200 - 2000 or RRP - 2000?

    Has Ford even sold 500 of these things yet?

    Ford may or may not have said the following.

    We are anticipating roll out in all 50 states, and at this point if one person in each state buys one we will have tripled our sales totals for this car.

    Re: 2013 Ford Focus Electric Gets Big Discount

    Something is wrong with these figures.

    The Ford configurator includes the $7500 federal tax incentive.

    Factor that out and the lease and cash buy both have about the same incentive.

    Why would the lease incentive be four times the purchase incentive?

    Re: 2013 Ford Focus Electric Gets Big Discount

    There's no real rocket science here, Ford is copying what GM does with Volt by applying
    government incentives to leasing so that buyers get low lease terms.

    Ford sold 167 Focus EVs in December alone for a total of 685 last year when attractive
    lease deals started so I'd say it's working at shifting vehicles but will never be that big..
    At the end of 2012, Focus EV inventory was around 1100 cars, so we're talking peanuts

    Most of the Focus EV costs were shouldered by Magna who supply all the electronics.
    The Focus EV was developed as a response to government legislation, I Imagine that
    the Focus EV is the ultimate electric progression on the energi hybrids where the ICE
    is replaced by a larger battery pack while still using the Ford electric CVT transmission.

    That's right, as reported in August, the rollout was cut back from 19 centers to California and New York:
    Blue Oval to concentrate on California, New York for first several months.
    LINKFord's marketing team posted a message on the My Focus Electric forum detailing plans to cut the planned 19 rollout markets -- including Chicago, Detroit and Seattle -- to instead concentrate exclusively on New York and California for the first several months in 2012. The message, from Ford EV marketing manager David Finnegan, reads as follows:

    For the first few months of production, we will be concentrating on California and New York. Our dealers in those areas will be the first to have their retail orders scheduled and receive the Focus electric. We will be rolling out to the remainder of our initial markets starting in spring 2012.
    So at the moment, Focus EV is still limited to about 19 key markets and not available to all dealers / regions

    Surprised to see you here........................


    Thanks for your thoughtful, heartfelt, and valuable commentary. Can always count on you for some thought provoking comments.............

    /sarcasm



    As much as I understand GM's Volt approach (completely different looking car) I like the fact that Ford created alternative powertrains for a standard platform.

    Re: 2013 Ford Focus Electric Gets Big Discount

    I just checked, and there are a total of 3 in Canada.

    How can a $10750K rebate be a big deal?

    And the fact that it is for "Leases Only" Smells of GM's EV1 fiasco.

    I believe that the Focus Electric, is nothing more than a Test Bed.
