Just read your thread earlier and then went out real quick...saw a black one here in the Detroit area coming up behind me when I was in the turn lane as he passed.

Too bad the price tag is 41grand. Not worth it. Most folks who can afford to spend 40g's on a car are not worried about the price of gas. The people that would really want one of these simply cant afford one

You do get a government rebate type deal too, if my mind serves me correctly. But still, the price with that would be just more than the ST.

Sure you get a tax rebate but you still need to come up with the 41g's. If I had 41 grand to spend or could afford a 40+g car I would not be buying one of these. That I can say for sure.

That is my car... I was able to make out the delivery address - Schultz Ford Lincoln. Located in Nanuet, NY. The last four digits of the blotted out VIN on the top of the Monroney sticker are 848. I am picking up the car tomorrow. Thanks for sharing. I'll certainly send you some more photos....

I thought that might be your car Spare since you mentioned in the other thread that it was at the dealer. We got 2 in your white one and a black one. I heard one was going to Vermont and one to Rhode Island.
Stop into the service dept and say hello to Steve if you get a chance.

But you're not everybody.

I see the occasional Volt or Leaf floating around here. With increasing frequency in the last few months. I'd say Ford will sell a few of these, and it's probably a good bet for the future as the infrastructure to support these kinds of cars continues to develop.

I wasn't talking for everybody. Just myself. If this is the future I sure hope they make it affordable for the regular person to buy and without fed rebates. I would go out tomorrow and buy one if it were in the low 20's otherwise it makes zero sense to own one (for me). Better off with a Prius
