Ford Focus Electric won't come cheap
We first brought you news of the production Ford Focus Electric earlier this year when it was
officially unveiled at CES 2011 in Las Vegas
. Now, Ford has spilled the beans on how much the all-electric car will cost when it debuted next year.
According to Ford's new online
price configurator/reservation page
, the Focus Electric will have a base price of $39,200 plus a destination charge of $795 bringing the total to $39,995. Since the U.S. government is handing money out left and right for "green" vehicles, the price of the Ford Focus Electric drops to $32,495 after a $7,500 federal tax credit.
To put this pricing in perspective, the all-electric
has a base MSRP of $36,050 while the
has a base MSRP of $39,995. Both of those figures are before the $7,500 federal tax credit is taken into consideration.
The Focus Electric is powered by a 123hp (181 lb-ft torque) electric motor and a 23 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that was co-developed with LG Chem. Top speed for the vehicle is a relatively meager 84 mph.
There’s no word on how far the Focus Electric will go on a charge, but we’re guessing that it will be targeting the Nissan’s Leaf’s EPA rating of
73 miles on a charge

The numbers are a little bit off, but your point is still valid, ordinary people can't buy this.
This car is for FLEETs
! Municipalities that drive the same routes every day, car rental companies in high density urban areas, military base general transportation, large vertically integrated solar and/or power electronics corporations.

Did You Partake in "Black Friday/Thursday"?
I skipped Thanksgiving to get the Black Thursday deals!
I spent Thanksgiving with friends/family, but I lined up at midnight for the deals!
Skip Thanksgiving? Wait in line? No way, but I'll go out today and see what's left.
I prefer Cyber Monday.
I don't do deal shopping... too much stress, it just isn't worth it.
