Is Ford Serious About Selling the Focus EV?

Green Car Report's John Voelcker doesn't think so in the light to dismal sales and SAE presentations that highlight the shortcomings of battery technology.

Some makers are investing in battery electric cars and doing their darnedest to make them market successes--think Nissan or Tesla, for example.

Ford does not appear to be one of those companies.

Since the second month that its plug-in hybrid C-Max Energi went on the market, its monthly sales have exceeded the total sales of the Ford Focus Electric for all of 2012.


Ford Focus Electric lists for $39,995.

EPA rates the Focus Electric at 99 mpg equivalent in highway driving and 110 mpg equivalent in city driving.

2012 Ford Fusion will have $295 automatic stop-start feature to save fuel.

Fusion's Auto Start-Stop option will help drivers save as much as $1,100 over five years at today's fuel prices, Ford announces.
