Ford Focus Electric

This is the all-new Ford Focus Electric, planned to be launched into market sometime next year, even though it’s still not clear when the fuel-powered of it will arrive!

This new EV has one real advantage over other electrics today and that’s the design. Apart from a few small details, the Focus Electric looks virtually the same as the normal Focus. If anything, that new grille makes it look even better.

The all-electric powertrain and single-speed transmission provide immediate responsiveness and smooth acceleration when the driver pushes down the accelerator, up to a top speed of 84 mph (136 kph).

Extensive eco-friendly materials, such as bio-foam seat cushions and recycled fabrics also are featured in the vehicle.

Ford will offer a home charging station for the Focus Electric – sold separately – that gives you a quick charge. Don’t get too excited though becasue this quick still means 3 to 4 hours!
