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.rsmith1 wrote: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.

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!
