In all fairness the user could be going to the auto show to register others. The ford booth didn't care who you registered yesterday.

Affordable wireless is possible, just takes some creativity.

Can you confirm the black leather as I thought the black leather option was not available for Focus EVs and only the light colour.
Yes, there is black leather option available :) I don't like light leather either

Are you sure because black leather isn't even available on the main ford website as an option. even my dealer said that it's impossible to order

With so many of us picking this up and since we have the long lead time maybe we should organize a group buy for the chargers.

Any preferred dealers and installers in the gta?

I went to the Pickering dealership and was told the same. Wanted to sit in a Focus and feel the interior. There wasn't one in the showroom. Asked the salesman if I can sit in one outside, instead he just gave me a catalogue. Showed him the Yonge Steeles Ford contract from a fellow RFDer. At one point, in the conversation, he said "why don't you go there".
Wow, almost had the same experience but was able to sit in one of the focus out in the lot. But the salesperson said they cannot apply for the rebate and insisted it will be paid in 3 instalments. He also said there was about 30 inquiries on these Electric cars. I'm sure they'll be losing so much of sales even though it's low margin. And of course, they haven't sold 1 Electric.

If anyone is interested in getting a charger (serious people only). I can ask my contact for a group buy on these chargers:

https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/search ... %20charger

Eaton Indoor/Outdoor L2 chargers. Can probably get close to Cost price but will probably need 10 people and you will receive an invoice for the charger rebate as well. PM Me if interested. I'll start a thread if there is enough interest.
Interested, PM'd

It would only make sense if you aren't doing the 3 year lease.

I only got the lease coverage. I wouldn't get the maintenance stuff because you have factory warranty for the full 3 years and there is significantly less maintenance in general with electric vehicles.

I can't find the 2017 info, but it should be pretty identical to the 2016. This is what I could find in the owners manual:
http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_ ... 8_2015.pdf

NORMAL SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
Normal scheduled maintenance*
Every 12 months or 10,000 mi (16,000 km).
Rotate tires, inspect tire wear and measure tread depth.
Perform multi-point inspection (recommended).
Inspect brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, brake linings,
hoses and parking brake.
Inspect cooling system level, strength and hoses.
Inspect half-shaft boots.
Inspect steering linkage, ball joints, suspension and tierod ends.
Inspect wheels and related components for abnormal noise, wear, looseness or drag.

Other maintenance items
Every 20,000 mi (32,000 km) *
Replace cabin air filter.

At 10 years or 150,000 mi (240,000 km) **
Change coolant and coolant filter.

Soooooo... you probably don't need it :razz:

For those on the fence who drive on the qew, don't forget that you get free access to hov lanes even when you are alone with the green plates.

If you are remotely thinking about this deal contact one of the posters with an Ottawa Auto Show connection to sign you up for the rebate. It always happens on rfd that people make up their minds later and lose good rebates.
