Production of the all-new 2012 Ford Focus Electric hatchback has begun at the automaker’s Michigan Assembly Plant, and the first of the vehicles soon will be on their way to dealers in the initial launch areas of New York and California.

While New York, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco will get the cars first, they will be available in Houston and Austin, along with several other markets, during 2012; the rest of the country, including San Antonio, will get them starting in 2013.

The other markets that will have the battery-operated vehicle next year are Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Detroit; Orlando, Fla.; Phoenix and Tucson, Ariz.; Portland, Ore.; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; Richmond, Va.; Seattle; and Washington, D.C.
