2014 Ford Focus Electric

2014 FORD FOCUS ELECTRIC: The Focus Electric is the first fuel-free, rechargeable passenger car from Ford, and now available at Certified EV dealerships nationwide in North America. As one of the most fuel-efficient five-passenger car in the U.S., the 2014 Focus Electric is the flagship of Ford's transformed lineup that features 10 vehicles with leading fuel economy, all on display at the 106th Chicago Auto Show (Feb.8-17, 2014). The Focus Electric benefits from being based on the fuel version of Ford's global C-segment car, and shares many of the same premium components and features as its gasoline-powered counterpart. This state-of-the-art front-wheel drive vehicle receives power from an advanced 23kWh liquid-cooled, high-voltage lithium-ion battery system that seamlessly works with the single-speed transmission. Engineered to help reduce energy loss and heat generation, the powertrain generates 143 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque, and gives you a best-in-class range of up to 76 miles on each charge, and an 84 mph top speed. The regenerating braking captures over 90% of energy lost through friction brakes, then recycles energy to recharge battery and helps to achieve maximum energy efficiency. Focus Electric features an advanced charging system that enables the car's battery to fully recharge in four hours - using available 240-volt outlets that can be installed in residential garages. To cut charging costs at home, this model offers an innovating charging feature powered by Microsoft that helps U.S. owners to charge their vehicles at the cheapest utility rates. Eco-consciousness continues in the five-passenger cabin with seat fabric made from 100% recycled materials, with cushions composed of bio-based foam derived from plant seed oils. Handsome interior has ambient lighting with seven switchable colors, standard Sony audio system, HD radio and iTunes tagging. There is a total of 13.2 cu. ft. of luggage room in the tailored trunk.
