For more than a decade, Ford has been perfecting electric vehicle technology since then when it was the first one to introduce a Hybrid SUV which now is busy in making Focus. With the development of plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles, Ford is planning to introduce its own plug-in hybrid Gasoline-Free in 2012. This new magnificent vehicle is simply with the touch of an art of electric vehicle technology than its predecessors.
Instead of making buzz and sizzle by Ford’s Focus EV, the company is focusing on addressing the biggest obstacle between EVs and undoubtedly the mainstream, Cost. Depending on weather conditions and driving style, special care has taken of for driving range. The Ford Focus electric is targeted to travel of 100 miles per gallon (mpg) between charges, courtesy of a 23 kWh battery pack. Basically, The Focus EV isn’t a plug-in series hybrid, sometimes referred as “extended-range electric vehicle,” that takes a small engine on board to recharge the batteries on the fly. With the help of using 110-volt or 220-volt hookup, a simple full recharge that takes from 3 to 6 hours, can take you planning to travel 100 miles easily.
The price has not been announced yet, but we are expecting for an affordable price from Ford. As we assuming the cost may be $39,200, with a $795 destination charge.
