The Ford Focus Electric is a 5-door hatchback electric car produced by Ford Motor Company. The Focus Electric is Ford's first full production, all-electric passenger vehicle, and production began in December 2011. Deliveries for fleet customers in the United States began in December 2011, and deliveries to retail customers are scheduled to take place only in California, New York and New Jersey, in limited numbers, during the first half of 2012, followed by the other 16 initial markets later in 2012. The European launch is scheduled for late 2012. The Focus Electric shares the glider of a third generation Ford Focus. Its electric powertrain uses a 23kWh, liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack, which delivers a range of 76 mi (122 km) according to the US Environmental Protection Agency. The agency rated the Focus Electric combined fuel economy at 105 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (2.2 L/100 km), and ranks the Focus Electric as the most fuel-efficient car sold in the United States in the compact class. The Focus Electric was awarded the 2011 Green Car Vision Award at the 2011 Washington Auto Show. Ford Focus Electric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia While I hear a lot of bad attention paid to the Volt based on the fact that some connect it with a particular political candidate, I wonder then what the same comments would be on another American built EV will have. The fact is regardless of the these cars having any connection with any political party they are American and as such will eventually lead to a stronger American economy and thats not a bad thing.
