Ford Focus Electric Debuts at CES in Las Vegas (Video)

The zero-emissions Ford Focus EV made its public debut yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and is set to go on sale end of 2011 in North America. European sales will start in 2012.

Compared to the regular Focus, the electric version features an improved aerodynamics package that consists of a new front fascia. Other visual changes are a charging port with an LED ring and new 15-spoke 17-inch alloys fitted with low-rolling resistance tyres.

The Focus Electric is powered by 100 kW electric motor with a 23-kWh battery, capable of speeds of up to 84mph, while a driving range from a full charge is up to 100 miles, just like on the Nissan Leaf.

Full charge takes up to 20 hours from a standard 120-volt outlet and just three hours from 240-volt charging station.
