Gas-free driving is here. And the new Ford Focus Electric demonstrates just how viable – and enjoyable – this next era of car travel will be.* It is the embodiment of progressive movement: 100% electric-power and zero CO2 emissions.

Part of what makes Focus Electric so special, is that it comes fully loaded and features an impressive combination of technology and engineering designed to maximize the performance and impact of the car’s electric power.

Focus Electric gets all of its power from an advanced high-voltage lithium-ion battery system, which means you’ll never need a drop of gas or an oil change. A full charge can be achieved in approximately 3 – 4 hours with the available 240-volt home charging station.

SYNC® with MyFord Touch, a tech tool that Ford drivers may already be familiar with, has been equipped with unique EV content to help the driver enhance the car’s electric performance. The system displays battery charge status, energy surplus status and more to help you maximize efficiency and range.

The MyFord® Mobile app lets you monitor and schedule charging from anywhere. It gives you remote charging status updates, existing charge levels, available range and keeps track of your charge schedule. It helps you also locate the nearest charging stations.

Aesthetically speaking, Focus Electric looks as smart as it performs. Its kinetic design exudes energy, giving it a feel of constant motion. Eco-conscious materials inside and an illuminated charge port outside project its advanced nature.
