After a 13-month, $550 million conversion from making large SUVs, the suburban Detroit plant has started producing a conventional gasoline-powered new-generation Ford Focus that will go on sale in early 2011. Three electric versions of the Focus will follow: a battery electric model in late 2011 and hybrid and plug-in hybrids in late 2012.

That debut may hit Pennsylvania or points close before the LEAF does. In which case, I will definitely be open to ordering it first.

I wonder what "late 2011" means to Ford. Any guesses?

That sounds about right to me. Realistically it's early 2012, and probably just a few cars even then. Following the spirit of the Autoweek article, it seems like the electric ones are going to be just a few scattered along the line, occasional insertions between the ICE cars.

Ford seems to be pretty active on their facebook page in answering at least some questions. I am in Minnesota and asked if I could buy a car from Chicago when they come out (Chicago is one of the initial locations for roll-out). They responded that I could. Therefore I am likely looking at the possibility that both the Focus EV and the Leaf will be available to me at or around the same time. I am open to either car but obviously need to more about the Focus...especially the price.

Wondering if anyone knows if both cars would use the same charging system? Or is this something we just do not know at this point? I would rather not wait to pick the car before I get my garage ready.
