USA: 2012 Ford Focus EV rated at 105 mpg-equivalent—more efficient than Nissan Leaf

Ford announced EPA fuel economy ratings today for its upcoming all-electric Focus hatchback. The federal test results show the car will achieve the equivalent of 105 mpg overall in mixed city and highway driving. That puts it 4 mpg higher than its most direct competitor, the Nissan Leaf.

The Mitsubishi “i” is rated higher, at 112 mpg-equivalent (MPGe), but it’s a smaller car that seats only four and has a claimed range 20-percent lower than the Leaf and the Focus EV. (We’re currently testing an “i” and will let you know how far it will go in the real world.)
