The American car maker, Ford, is preparing the Focus electric model to be produced in and for the European market.
Ford’s EV will be integrated directly in the assembly line of their Saarlouis plant in Germany.
Under the hood, the new Focus EV will be using an electric motor and lithium-ion batteries, with the power output of 143 Hp. This power unit allows the vehicles to reach 135 km/h and, on a full charge, you can get a range of 161 km. The full charge will take 3-4 hours, but if you want to get moving faster, a 2-3 hours charge will get you a range of 96 km.
Ford also installed several features on their electric Focus, like a regenerative braking system and a brake coach that will teach how to make the most of the system and save up to 95 or the kinetic energy you would usually waste. Another interesting feature is a real-time range calculator that takes into consideration all the variables like remaining battery charge, braking and acceleration and electrical devices like the AC, heads light or the audio system.
