Now with the delay of Tier 2 of LEAF orders to "late summer 2011", that puts the Focus EV in direct competition with the LEAF next year in at least 5 markets.

I read one article just a week ago or so that surprised me when they said the Focus EV was going to cost around 40K! That definitely will not hurt the LEAF if they keep the price there.

This is more in the realm of possibility for me. I have two brothers in DC, so I could probably figure out a way to wedge in there. In any event, it certainly looks like an alternative to consider.

Yeah, that was interesting. I spotted that yesterday on the Ford site. I still have some more digging to do. Thanks for reminding me!

If Ford had been less wishy-washy about their commitment to the Focus EV (or even the Transit Connect EV, which I very much doubt will have any deliveries this year either), they could well have gotten my money!

Deliveries of Transit Connect EV to fleet customers already have occurred, according to reports.
