The zero-emission Focus Electric is spearheading Ford’s line-up of electrified and highly fuel-efficient vehicles, and will be joined in Europe by the Ford C MAX Energi plug-in hybrid electric vehicle next year, followed by the all-new Ford Mondeo Hybrid soon after.

Developed as a “One Ford” global vehicle, the Focus Electric features an advanced electric motor and lithium-ion battery powertrain that produces 145PS and achieves a top speed of 84mph. Each vehicle is equipped with a 6.6kW fully integrated onboard charger that can achieve a driving range of around 60 miles with 2-3 hours charging from a 32 A power supply. A full charge of the Focus Electric battery in 3-4 hours will deliver a 100-mile range.*

Barb Samardzich, product development vice president, Ford of Europe, said: “Focus Electric marks the dawn of an exciting new age of full-electric Ford passenger vehicles in Europe, and demonstrates the success of the One Ford strategy in making this sophisticated vehicle available to our European customers.”
