DETROIT -- Ford Motor Co. is pushing back the full launch of the 2012 Focus EV, according to a message posted on a Focus Forum from Ford marketing.
That also explains some new material from the company which says, "2012 Focus electric; coming spring 2012."
Originally, the Focus was supposed to launch in 19 markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit and Seattle.
In the www.myfocuselectric.com forum, Ford's electrified-vehicles marketing manager David Finnegan broke the news.
"For the first few months of production, we will be concentrating on California and New York," he said. "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."
As for the rest of the country's markets, no word yet from Ford, so the best advice is to be patient.
