Looks like Focus EV will only be delivered in NY & CA this year, probably in small numbers. Rest of the "initial launch" states will see the cars only in Spring of 2012.
For the first few months of production, we will be concentrating on California and New York. Our dealers in those areas will be the first to have their retail orders scheduled and receive the Focus Electric. We will be rolling out to the remainder of our initial markets starting in Spring 2012, including Raleigh/Durham.
Does that help?

This won't be the first time EVs have been delayed, though. Nissan had just ceremonial deliveries in December of last year and small number of deliveries in Jan & Feb, including my Blue Leaf towards Feb end.
Also explains the flyers being sent saying launching in '12 Spring, as some have reported.
I hope this doesn't mean a delay in launching Ford Energi.
