Charles Who is your Dealer? Mine is chartrand in LavalHi all,
I just spoke to my dealer in Montreal who was able to provide the VIN for my Titanium phev. It was ordered on July 22 by the dealership and has a production date of Sep 23.
He also said up to 10 weeks for delivery and that everything was on schedule.
Thanks for the update. Mine was scheduled for this last (September 14) week, but I was given a "new date" of the week of October 5th. I wonder why they are having so many delays. I am beginning to contemplate cancelling my order and waiting for the 2021 models to come out in January.Well I heard from my Sales Mgr tonight and he got a text from his friend that has worked for FORD for 30 years and works at the Escape Plant. He said "They are building some Pre production units now. Nobody can give a date when they will go into production and be shipped to Dealers. I don't know if they even sell the PP units or if they drive them to see if there are any problems with them."
So my take is that the earliest we will see our FEHP is still a month out. If I hear anything new I will pass it on to you.

I did read an article last night that mentioned that the issue with the Kuga PHEVs was moisture getting into the batteries. Sounds like it should be a simple fix, however I did read also that BMW had the same issue, and some other brand did too (I don't recall which one). So maybe 1) it's not so simple and 2) I wonder if they have the same battery suppliers.
[/QUI contacted my dealer. We agreed that if there is no progress on my 2020 Titanium PHEV order when 2021 orders open up, they will apply my deposit to a 2021 model and we will order a 2021 model for me. I don't think there will be many changes for 2021 but I am thinking of resale value. I am also very concerned about the issues they are having with the 2020 PHEV model. I hope they get them sorted out. I can continue using my 2016 CMax Energi for a few more months.Thanks for the update.
