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

"meager" 84 MPH?
11/3/2011 1:37:05 PM
In which state can you legally drive 84 MPH? On which roads is 84 MPH a "normal" speed?
This car isn't a long-distance commuter. If your commute has long stretches of road where you can regularly drive 84 MPH (hint: Not LA) then you don't want a car with a sub-100 mile range. If your commute is nearly all "city", and less than 25 miles, odds are that even if you have stretches of road where 84 MPH can be hit regularly, you won't miss being restricted to "only" 84 MPH.
