Ford is on a roll. The automaker released the Fiesta last year, and the 2012 Ford Focus hits the market in just a few months. Now that those models are underway, Ford’s putting the spotlight on the Ford Focus Electric.

“It's been nearly a full year since Ford made it clear that the automaker is planning to roll out an all-electric version of its Focus, and now we have our first glimpse at what to expect from the car. The Blue Oval has dusted off its first teaser of the New Year with a shot of the charging port on the EV Focus,” says Autoblog, adding that the Focus electric will take its first “bow at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, which runs from January 6 to 9.”

However, this won’t be the first time the automotive industry has taken a peek at the Ford Focus Electric. Left Lane News explains, “Previously, Ford has allowed media to drive an electric version of a Focus based on the outgoing Focus sedan, but now Ford has plans to bring its electric-only Focus to market and will base it on the upcoming model.”
