Ford Focus ElectricMarch 8, 2012
The Ford Focus Electric , the company’s first-ever all-electric passenger car, is on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
The Focus Electric offers a driving range of 100 miles and can be charged in just three to four hours when connected to an appropriate charging facility.
Although this Focus is powered by a 23kWh lithium-ion battery pack, much of its steering, handling and braking feel is shared with the conventional five-door hatchback Focus model upon which it is based.
From launch, the Focus Electric will also employ Ford’s voice control, device integration and connectivity interface, SYNC, with specially developed features to enhance the enjoyment of driving an electric vehicle in the most efficient way.
The Focus Electric will be the flagship of Ford’s new family of electrified vehicles and it will join the growing line-up of energy efficient ECOnetic Technology-badged vehicles.
The Ford Focus Electric will be on sale in the UK in 2013 .
