You are right Oxy... The car really doesn't fit your life style. And, it is way too expensive unless you are commuting 30+ miles per day. Hopefully, they will get the car close to the purchase price of a regular ICE. But, I think that is 5+ years away. Ford is leasing the FFE for aroung $200-250 per month in California, but who knows how long that will last.

For me it is perfect. Commuting 18-20,000 miles per year. I will save the price differintial in about 3 years and then enjoy the savings in gasoline for the next 7 years. I don't trade alot and drive all of my cars to 150,000+ miles.

It is a very cool car. Excellent acceleration and just like your SEL hatchback pretty cool looking. I rarely drive more then 80 miles in one trip and I kept my gasser for longer trips. So I am good to go and enjoying it.... Thanks for your post.
