2015 Ford Focus Buyer's Guide
The Ford Focus Electric is a 5-door subcompact car that shares the same attractive exterior as the normal Ford Focus Hatchback. The Focus Electric comes fully loaded, with the only major option being leather trimmed bucket seats. The car’s standard cloth fabric is made from REPREVE fiber, produced from 100 percent recycled materials, and the cushions are made from bio-based foam that is derived from plant seed oils. Like other Focus models, the interior and cargo space is smaller than competitors, and the car’s batteries reduce space even more. The Focus Electric was first available as a 2012 model, and recieved the same refresh in 2015 as the other models in the lineup.

The car features an onboard 6.6 kW charger, and the battery can be recharged in 3.6 hours using a 240 volt supply, or in 20 hours using a 120 volt supply. Fuel economy is rated at 110 MPGe city, 99 highway, and 105 combined.
Why buy the 2015 Ford Focus?
The Focus is one of the better inexpensive electric vehicles on the market. Driving the Focus Electric feels almost like driving a normal car, and it corners well, without too much body roll (despite its porky 3,600 pound weight). Acceleration from a stop is fairly strong, but acceleration at speed can be leisurely. The Focus Electric was engineered to reach a top speed of 84 miles per hour, and it delivers 100 percent of its torque at initial RPM. Range is listed at 76 miles according to the EPA. The ‘Electric’ badging on the side of the car lets everyone know that you are doing your part to save the environment, though otherwise the car is quite similar to regular versions. Like many electric vehicles, the Focus is eligible for numerous incentives (including a federal tax credit of $7,500).
