For the total seven months of 2012 so far, the automaker has only sold 135 of these EVs

Ford's electric Focus hasn't had much luck in the sales department during 2012, and this was evident in July's numbers.

The electric Ford Focus, which is a 5-door hatchback electric vehicle (EV) that was first produced in December 2011, had a total of 38 sales in the United States for the month of July.

This was a pretty big drop from the 89 Ford Focus Electrics sold in June. However, for the total seven months of 2012 so far, the automaker has only sold 135 of these EVs.

Ford has built a total of 884 Ford Focus Electrics this year, with 121 built in July alone. The American automaker managed to sell zero Focus EVs in February, March and April.

Ford hasn't given any sales predictions for the Focus EV throughout the rest of 2012, but said it will match supply with demand. For right now, the Focus EV is only available in California, New York and New Jersey. It will make its way to 19 other markets this fall.

Yes, +10k over a Focus = very fast car with style, performance, longer range, better quality components all around, and the fun factor of beating most sports cars off the line.

Plus thousands more in repair costs. Beating most sports cars off the line is called RECKLESS DRIVING. It's illegal in case you didn't know, and making use of the extra performance is going to rag the car out and break it down all that much sooner.

Really, I didn't know it was against the law to get to the speed limit faster than anyone else.

I've not been ticketed yet. You?

If you can put the power down, then no, it isn't illegal to out-accelerate the other vehicle on the road.

But depending on the police officer, they might consider it street racing. If you break your tires loose while accelerating, in Illinois and California, it is considered wreckless driving.

Ok grandma. I'll get an oldsmobile instead, you've convinced me.
