I don't have either of those. Dealership never gave them to me. As far as I know, they could have just taken my deposit and never placed the order.
You need to go to the media. Your story is ridiculous.

I don't think you can blame Ford on this. This is a straight dealership **** up. They probably took your deposit, but then got told by Ford HQ that they can not take more orders. They didn't want to lose your money, hoping that someone might cancel their order and then they could squeeze you in. They should have told you right away, return the deposit and put you on a waiting list.
It would be good if somehow you could make them 'pay' for it (in reputation and future business). Go to the media, social networks etc. if you're up to it. Make them know it's not OK.

Aren't we in the same shipment? Call your dealer.

Well, after 4-1/2 months of waiting, I finally emailed my dealership again and was told they were cancelling my order as I didn't get in the 2017 allocation. How in the hell it takes them 4-1/2 months to figure this out is beyond me. Now I'm stuck with no vehicle, and the full bill for my EVSE station as I don't have a VIN to claim the rebate. The dealership experience was awful, communication was awful and of course the dealership blames it all on Ford. Sorry Ford, you've lost a customer for life - and I now instead of telling people how great this car is that I would have bought, I'll be telling people to stay far away from Ford and it's dealerships.
Seems to be totally a dealership problem as Ford announced a stop for 2017 orders on May 12th. Your order should have been submitted before then and your dealership had a duty of care to do that. They messed up and did not order promptly then either forgot about you or more likely waited to see if they could somehow get their hands on another car as they know they are liable for any losses you have incurred through their negligence. They entered into a contract with you to provide a specific vehicle and are legally on the hook to pay you the difference between your contract price and the extra you will have to spend to get an equivalent vehicle elsewhere. The length of time they have kept you in the dark is unbelievable and so embarrassing for them and their lawyers that I am sure they will wish to settle out of court. They will either have to go cap in hand for help from Ford who could call other dealers due to receive vehicles the same specification as yours and offer customers a bounty to surrender their order or alternatively they can settle with you and compensate you for your loss and inconvenience, I would invest in a lawyers letter setting out your position.

If anyone is still looking for a 2017 FFE, this White Platinum with leather is still available for pickup in Montreal.
I just got an email because I was emailing them in July and they asked if I'm still interested in FFE and if I can test drive it before Friday.

I ordered April 24 and was told by the dealership that I have a serial number and they expect to see the car by the end of the month but I will believe it when I see it.

Here is my breakdown for base FFE from QC dealership that I bought in July:
Image
Options that are included in the base price of $34232 are only charging case (useless, but it was ordered by dealer already), tinted windows (about $200) and dealer admin fee ($400)
They probably also added it into your price (should ask).
Also ask about employee discount, It should be about 2500-2600 for leather with extra color.
Why didn't you pick it up yourself? Kinda waste of more than $1k. With proper planning, there shouldn't be a problem of driving it on 401 with a couple of fast charging stops.
Thanks for your response.

I think in this case, price I am getting is little more than yours.

Your price before taxes is 30907 minus 685 for the cord, tinting and dealer fees = 30222

My price before taxes is 33107.89 - 2350 for colour, leather seats and shipping = 30757.89

Did you already drive your car from quebec to here? How long did it take, to make it in one day, I would assume you need to find level 3 chargers.

You can plan your trip on plugshare.com, Plenty of Level 3 chargers on 401.
I picked my car at Gatineau dealership and I live in Kanata, so no problem there for me.

The potential risk was there for the last 20 years when I drove a stick shift too. To me, regen seems to slow down about the same as my old stick shift did. It's sad that we have to talk about brake lights turning on automatically because the car slows down; if people didn't tailgate all the time and actually drove this wouldn't be an issue.
I had drove stick shift too, L regen brake MUCH HARDER than stick shift, well depends on which gear you switch to. unless you switch 5 to 2, aka engine brake, I don't think it get remotely close to what L regen get. And also what type of vehicle matters.

So it brakes MUCH harder and then you say except this and that LOL.
I can probably get my stick shift to brake faster than the Focus fairly easily.,

My car was built on the 16th of August, I think yours was around that time. I've been contacting my sales guy who has been super helpful and is just as frustrated as I am it seems.

My concern is that it has been almost a month now since the car has been built. I am 350km away. Why isn't the car here? Why is the car, which I have put down $1,000 of my own money towards, sitting in a yard while I am racking up miles on my other cars?

He told me that I'm the last guy getting an FFE in Ontario, and that there is another car, along with mine sitting in the yard at the plant waiting to be shipped. What he then proceeded to tell me, and the total horse shit problem here, is that it's up to the truck driver to determine whether or not they want to pick up the car and bring it to Ontario. And you guessed it, Focuses don't pay as much as other cars.

I was hoping to call Ford "Canada" Customer service but they are in the US as someone has indicated.

So we don't have our cars because some truck drivers are lazy, basically.
