Ford's First-Ever All-Electric Passenger Car, Focus Electric

For an electric car, the 2013 Ford Focus Electric delivers an ample amount of acceleration while maintaining the quietness in the cabin one expects from electric vehicles, prompting us to say, “For better or worse, it’s one of the best electric vehicles you can buy today.”

With an interior just like any other Ford Focus, the Focus EV delivers the same navigation with SYNC and MyFord Touch, but the cargo room is cut by almost a third, due to the battery placement directly behind the second row seats.

Coming with a base price of $30,692, if you live in California, you can take $2,500 off that price, thanks to government incentives, making this car more desirable. However, even though the price may be a bit steep for what is ultimately a second car, “The Focus Electric marks the most advanced electric car we have today for the price.”
