Ford started to produce the series version of the new Ford Focus Electric. The model has a maximum range of 100 miles (160 kilometers) and costs of $ 39,995 in the United States of America.
Ford began production of Focus Electric, a model which has an autonomy of between 70 (112) and 100 miles (160 kilometers). The battery available on 2012 Ford Focus Electric is charging in just over three hours at a 240 volts outlet, two times faster than a Nissan Leaf, as Ford claims. Nissan Leaf has a declared range of 100 mi (160 km). Unlike Chevrolet Volt, Ford Focus Electric is equipped with an internal combustion engine to charge the battery.

Customers receive a discount of $ 7,500 from the state budget which automatically reduces the price of each “green” model.
