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

The other thing web2dot0 is refusing to acknowledge is who is going to pay for the environmental repair of the land around battery factories and disposal areas? Those things are made of some nasty elements so while you might drive around all smug thinking you're saving the environment--you're just ignoring the real issue.
Anything can damage the environment that is man made. Nothing is entirely safe.
I don't like the concept of EVs with now because they have too limited a range for me and their operational environment is also too limited.
