Ford has been perfecting electric vehicle technology for more than a decade, yes we were surprised too when we realized it was that long.
In fact, Ford was the first to introduce a hybrid SUV. Today, Ford is creating the future of electric vehicles with its development of plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles.
When introduced, they will be the state of the art in electric vehicle technology. Ford has set the bar very high. And you can be confident these innovative new electric vehicles will live up to that high standard.
No gas. No oil changes. Imagine a car that doesn’t need either.
That’s the new Focus Electric, the future of electric vehicle (EV) technology* from Ford.
They have been working at this new electric car for quite a few years.
It runs exclusively on a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery system that helps you get the most miles and fun out of every charge.
Instead of a gasoline engine, the Ford all-electric vehicle* will have an electric motor and high-voltage lithium-ion battery. It will run purely on electricity and is targeted to go up to 100 miles on a single charge. Because electricity is often cheaper than gasoline, it may be less costly to operate. Especially if you charge the battery at night when electric rates are lower. The all-electric vehicle will also feature a Regenerative Braking System, which will enable it to capture braking energy and store it for later use.
