Re: Automatic Locking / Unlocking?

Very interested as well. Any news on this front?

Re: Naming your car

Nice story about Bob. I had no idea.

Overriding the poll: true enough, though I wasn't putting it to a vote, exactly. ;)

Nunavut? Bob? Am I missing something, or were you just going for the non sequitur?

Naming your car

First: I have come to terms with the dealer, and he is FedEx-ing the documents for me to sign tomorrow. I should have my brand new 2015 silver Spark next week (shipping from Maryland to Texas). To the topic: I'm not normally one to name vehicles. But, I felt like my 2014 Focus Electric needed a name...

Evgo network

I have never needed to charge at an evgo station in my Ford Focus Electric, and have never signed up for any kind of plan with them. I see now that they offer a Flex plan where you pay as you go, basically. Here's the question, related to the price of charging: they want to charge $4.95 to plug it i...

Re: Fake noise maker

Good to know about the DCFC, although there are 2 reasons I'm not tremendously concerned about that. 1, I'm in Dallas, and I don't even know where I'd find one of those chargers here (of course I use PlugShare when necessary). 2, more importantly, I don't think the car I'm buying has the option for ...

Re: Fake noise maker

As one who GREATLY values silence, it's just about the number one thing I like about my Focus Electric. I ADORE being able to drive so quietly and have, on purpose, snuck up on a few people (as a joke). Hearing that the Spark has a built in noisemaker is disturbing, and I guarantee that removing tha...

Re: Request for Meetup/test drive in Dallas

I suppose mostly I just need to confirm that I can comfortable get into and out of the car, and and be comfortable while driving of course. Apparently there's a recall on the gas Spark, and the only ones I've found are sitting in Service and unavailable to drive. But a salesman might be able to let ...

Re: Request for Meetup/test drive in Dallas

That's great to know. I know the Spark EV has been discontinued - but not sure of the regular Spark. Maybe a dealer will have one I can sit in!

Request for Meetup/test drive in Dallas

Hi! I'm currently a Ford Focus Electric driver, with a lease that is ending. I'm needing a short term 2-3 year car and I want to stay electric if at all possible. I'm intrigued by the Spark - and I would love to get inside one to check it out. But of course it's discontinued and no dealer near me ha...
