2015 Ford Focus Energi Rumored: 25 Miles Of Range, $27,500?

Ford’s sales of its two Energi plug-in hybrid models climbed steadily throughout 2013, and now it appears the company will add a third model to the Energi family for 2015.

If rumors are correct, the 2015 Ford Focus Energi will add a plug-in hybrid model to the existing gasoline and battery-electric versions of its compact hatchback and sedan.

Its existence was first mentioned by Autocar, which noted it as an addition to a range of updated 2015 Focus models. The British magazine said only that it would use the same 2.0-liter engine as the C-Max Energi.

We did a bit of asking around, and confirmed that Ford has been quietly talking to fleet managers and others about the potential new model.

Company representatives, our source said, have quoted an electric range of 25 miles–up from the 21 miles rated for the C-Max and Fusion Energi models–and a price of about $27,500. (That could be a fleet price, however, with the actual retail price a few thousand dollars higher.)

The 2014 Ford C-Max Energi is pricier, starting at $32,920, and the Fusion Energi tops the range at $34,700.

A Focus Energi would be more expensive than any gasoline Focus, though less pricey than the Focus Electric. A bare-bones 2014 Focus S sedan starts at $16,810 (plus delivery), with prices ranging up to $23,575 for the high-end Focus Titainium hatchback, and then $35,170 for the low-volume Focus Electric hatchback.
