USA: Ford Focus Electric to make debut; `plugless power’ tested

You’re likely to be hearing a lot about Ford’s 2012 Focus Electric this week. Ford is in town with its new electric car, and will be giving test drives to members of the media, “electric auto enthusiasts, stakeholders and curious members of the public for this event.”

The event is set for 10 a.m. to noon, Thursday, May 10, at Hermann Square Park, 900 Smith Street – directly in front of City Hall.

Ford reports “the all-electric Focus is capable of fully recharging in three to four hours at home using the available wall-mounted 240-volt charge station – charging in half the time of the Nissan Leaf.”

In Wednesday, May 16, InMotion section, Evelyn Kanter of Motor Matters will report on electric vehicle “plugless power”:

Plugless power is a new concept of hands-free, wireless charging stations. The Plugless Power by Virginia-based Evatran is a disc you park on the floor of your garage. The disc relays the charge wirelessly and automatically via a receiver mounted to the underside of the vehicle that’s been hard-wired to the EV’s existing on-board charger.
