Focus Electric features a mile-per-gallon equivalent better than the Chevrolet Volt and other competitive battery electric vehicles, is capable of full recharge in three to four hours, and offers value charging from Microsoft for the cheapest utility rate.

“Focus Electric is the flagship of our new family of electrified vehicles, showcasing our commitment to offer consumers choice when it comes to fuel-efficient or fuel-free vehicles,” says Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president for Global Product Development. “Its advanced powertrain will deliver significant energy efficiency advantages and zero CO2 emissions without compromising driving enjoyment. And its suite of smart driver information technologies will transform the way customers think about energy usage and their transportation needs.”

The Focus Electric is slated for a late 2011 launch and is a definitive milestone in zero-emission technology.
