Picked mine up on Thursday. Driving home in stop and go traffic wasn't as bad...plus I earned 20 butterflies!
Congrats Vanno! When did you place your order?

FFE owners: what are your maximum kms after a fully charged battery? I'm getting 240-250 kms after each charge.

Have you ever tried the real world limit?

Been noticing that this is not the actual limit. After a quick drive and park for the night, the next morning the range drops back to around 197kms.

I haven't kept up with this thread, and decided to call dealership, ordered mid March Yonge/Steeles, they gave me a VIN and said the vehicle is IN-TRANSIT but no ETA date. Anyone else in the same boat? Any idea on ETA? Days? Weeks?

They can't give you an ETA? That's surprising. Use the links posted before to see if can get more information.

I was told that the order went in on Easter weekend, and that delivery was July 30th. Came a month and a half early.

I checked the VIN and the car was built May 22nd.

Probably still in break-in period and computer is still learning?

You ordered in April and it was already built? Not sure what happened but you are lucky

So the dealer didn't submit the order until 2 weeks later? That really screwed up your order

My build date is showing "30.11.0002" . Ordered March 25
Very likely end of August / early September. We're probably in the same boat. Wish I had made the order at least one week earlier.

Thanks. I checked FordEtis using my VIN and build date is 20.06.2017, but no ETA or accepted by Ford date. Ordered 14 March. Where are you guys getting ETA date?

VIN assignment does not happen immediately after order placement.

Especially not for a car like this where there are more orders than the plant can handle.

It normally takes about 2-3 weeks after an order is placed unless the plant is under capacity. If it is over there is no average time frame. If this persons order was assigned a VIN within 2 weeks, they are lucky.
