Ford Focus Electric

We know that Ford Focus Electric is already available in some parts of the US market and that even it has been announced with some really nice features it seams that the sale results are not on the expected level.

For our guide, we’ve hand-picked the best information about the five-seat hatchback, detailing everything from its debut through to its pedestrian warning system, its in-car telematics and even the occasional celebrity appearance.

So what should you know about Ford s rival to the Nissan Leaf?

Firstly, unlike its Japanese rival, the Focus Electric shares its basic architecture with regular gasoline and in Europe, diesel vehicles. The exterior styling and interior layout is much as you d find in any other Focus, so little will come as a surprise to the average Focus owner.

Under the hood, you ll find a 107-kilowatt (143-horsepower) electric motor. A 23 kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack provides the power, and its official EPA range is 76 miles.

While the Leaf has no dedicated thermal management system for the battery, the Focus does and the ability for it to cool or warm the battery depending on conditions should ensure range is preserved a little better in temperature extremes.

We described the Focus Electric as solid, smooth and sporty after driving it back in April.

The Focus is already a fun car so the Electric is off to a good start, and there s enough power and torque from the electric motor to tackle city and highway driving. If you want to know more, check out our first drive review, below.
