23kWh Battery

In its 6th model year, the 5-door, 5-seat Focus remains Ford’s 1st and only all-electric passenger vehicle. The hatchback’s new 2017 lithium-ion batteries provide 115 miles of all-electric range, compared to last year's 76 miles. The EPA has estimated MPGe at 118 City / 96 HWY.

Electricity is supplied by a 40% denser liquid-cooled/heated 33.5 kWh battery pack. A single speed automatic sends power to the front wheels, supplying a top speed of 84 mph, smooth acceleration and 100% of available torque. In addition to its new DC fast charge, the Focus Electric can be fully charged via a standard 120-volt/30 amp cord or available 240-volt/20 amp home charging station. Ford claims a 240-volt/30-amp charging station will fully recharge its EV in as little as 5.5 hours.

The EV's AdvanceTrac® ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) continuously monitors road conditions and driver responses and adjusts engine power. Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS) offers additional driving control. The EV's Brake Coach appears when the vehicle has come to a stop and displays regenerative braking efficiency. Standard features include dual-zone auto climate control, heated front seats, a rear view camera, a 9-speaker stereo system, satellite HD radio, a navigation system and Intelligent Access push-button start. Focus Electric comes with two USB ports for charging purposes. SmartGauge with EcoGuide offers multiple, customizable LCD displays that chart driving habits for maximizing vehicle efficiency. Content such as the Energy History, Energy Coach and Butterfly screens work together to help monitor and improve your driving performance and electric range. When the car is driving efficiently and determines there's enough range to reach the next charging destination that's been entered in the Navigation System, illuminated blue butterflies appear.

The simple-to-use MyFord® Mobile App allow you to monitor the charge of your Focus Electric remotely, show you where the nearest charging station is and lock and unlock your doors remotely. The Focus Electric's eco-conscious interior uses standard cloth fabric made with REPREVE® fiber produced from 100 percent recycled materials. All Ford EVs feature soy-based foam in the seat cushions. Also, plastic bottles, milk jugs and other post-consumer recycled materials are used in underbody shields, wheel arch liners and air cleaner assemblies.

The Car Connection reviewers say: "The battery cells are provided by Korean maker LG Chem, which supplies similar cells for the Chevrolet Volt range-extended electric car—meaning that Ford has piggybacked on General Motor's extensive cell test and development work. The Focus Electric pack is liquid-cooled—unlike that of the Nissan Leaf, which is only air-cooled—and that should make it somewhat more resistant to temperature extremes. The Focus Electric delivers the same enjoyable roadholding that gasoline Focus models do, despite several hundred pounds of extra weight. But that weight sits low, with the battery under the floorpan, so the car feels well planted. The electric motor's torque makes it a particularly good car for urban traffic jousting."

Auto critics have repeatedly rated the Focus as one of the most handsome EV sedans on the market. Its aero-swept styling gives it a sleek European small car appeal. The US Environmental Protection Agency ranks the Ford Focus as one of the most fuel-efficient compacts sold in the USA. It was awarded the Green Car Vision Award at the Washington Auto Show in 2011. The EV comes with an 8 Year/100,000 Mile Hybrid/Electric Components Warranty. MSRP starts around $29,120.

Focus Electric is eligible for a California State Rebate of $2500, a Federal Tax Credit of $7500, wand HOV stickers.
