Yeah just put a deposit down in Ottawa today too.

Did you put a deposit down or actually sign lease papers? How long did they tell you it will take?
how much is end of lease insurance?

Can any Ottawa dealer get close to Toronto numbers (34.6K)?

Did anyone get test drive, in west end GTA? I won't buy anything without test drive it.
both dixie and erinwood said nobody have the car for test drive, what's going on?
As I posted earlier Summit Ford in Rexdale has a used 2012 Focus Electric if you want to drive one before buying.

So if our cars arrive in July and employee pricing has them at a lower price are we just out of luck?

The dealer I'm working with told me that if the rebates are better when the car arrives, the better terms can apply. (They also told me a lot of other crap, but that specific point I have in an email from them).
If it's manufacturer rebates that change I can't really see how it would affect the dealer. Of course that doesn't mean they won't try to use a better customer position to sweeten their own deal too.

Signed for one at Yorkdale Ford, great experience. $2100 down, 3 yr lease. $177+tax=$200 a month. That's what I pay for in gas right now!
They expect a 3-4 month delivery time.

Congrats. What is your buyback at the end of the lease?

I made sure to get that in writing as well. Although, as you said, honouring it is another matter.

Can anyone explain how the EV rebate works, will it last long enough to get more cars in market so we have a comparison?

It doesn't come out of the dealers pocket either way so they will honor it.

I was told the same, you do benefit potentially from the long order time, you get to see what offers or rebates come out over the next 3-4 months.

Eh, maybe people are different?

Can't speak for others, but I'm treating this from a utilitarian point of view. $9K over 3 years, $600 "gas" for 60,000Km, almost zero maintenance. Even if I hate the way it handles and drives, I'm willing to put up with it for what I'm paying. If I remotely cared about the way it feels or drives, I would test drive the gas Focus, but I can't even be bothered to do that.
just spent some time reading the spec, the car seems too much underpwoer ?
The EV has base curb weight of 3622lb, which is even 200lb heavier than my RAV4 - a compact SUV. 300kg heavier than another focus gas car
The motor is rated 107 kw and RAV4 4L engine is 131 kw; so even less power.
I complete understand that EV can twist rod straight so get better torque, etc. But it is still a bit on the slow side. Especially in highway speed where the straight twist on wheel don't apply.
And max speed is 135kmh, which is considered quite slow and even dangerous for N/A highway drive.
It use p225 tire, much wider than gas car (195-205) as wide as my RAV4, maybe help to slow down the car
That's not quite what I think EV should be

I have never heard it compared to a RAV4 before, but yes I do believe it is not considered fast

2017 Ford Focus Electric 0-60 times, all trims
Trim, HP, Engine, Transmission
Base 4dr Hatchback
0-60 times 10.1 sec
1/4 mile times 17.4 @ 80 mph

It is about 1.5 seconds slower than the gas version to 60mph
and 1 second slower over a quarter mile

I don't know what to make of that, but I have yet to ever buy a car based on how fast it drives or speeds up.
