Paul,I'm interested in how they fix the effected HVB's, that's got to be expensive. My Sales Manager is looking to see if we can order one now.
Would like to see the major changes if you can share it or just summarize in a message.I just ordered my 2021 Escape PHEV (U0L /99Z/445, 650A, H7, SANDSTONE), after my 2020 order was cancelled by the factory over battery supply problems. I will let you know when I get the VIN #. I have the 2021 Escape PHEV MAJOR PRODUCT CHANGE guide if any wants to see it. My outstanding Fleet Dealer sent it to me Friday.
I don't think FORD has approved the start up for production of PHEV yet. But the order guide is out (as I commented in an earlier post) and I'm working with my Fleet dealer and have ordered my 2021 Escape PHEV. This order is a replacement order to the one that I had in the system back in the fall and was canceled by FORD when they stopped production over battery issue identified in Europe. I have attached the screen shot of the order page from my dealer that clearly shows my order # and the first one with VIN # assigned before it was canceled and my replacement order. I'm told this will put my order at the top of the start up que when they restart production. You may have to view and expand the picture spartanly. Good Luck.
Yes understand and concur without the VIN# my order is only a place holder at this point. Your right about the smaller gas tank, I read that it is because of the larger battery pack and recharging cooling equipment installed in the PHEV compared to the one in the plain Hybrid they have no more room for the 14.1 gal. tank. Still the PHEV is rated at about 450 to 500 per tank full.Unfortunately it doesn't mean much until they assign a VIN#, I think I'm tired of wanting and going to look for a 2020 FEH Titanium w/block heater. It bothers me that it only has a 11.2 gallon tank compared to Hybrid 14.2 gallons. CMAX Plugin has 14.1 gallon tank.
I am in Canada too and the same as you, not able to order yet. I don't know the pricing details, but they did a confirm $1,000 off and a free car charger (valued at another $1,000). I had originally ordered the 2020 in July I believe.
