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.

I've been an automotive engineer at FoMoCo for a decade and you're telling me I don't know how cars 'work'?
Son, you truely are the doctor or crap.
Political views aside, the previous post is accurate. The energy used to keep the batteries at an efficient operating temperature greatly outweighs the lost efficiency incurred by a cold or overheating battery.
And I don't know who the post was directed at about being a "typical southerner" but I am from Chicago and it regularely drops well below 0f here in the Winter. It ain't Alaska but it definately pushes the capabilities of any battery chemistry. I use an engine block heater in my diesel just so the OIL doesn't freeze.
