2017 Ford Focus Electric gets EPA ratings

2017 Ford Focus Electric

 

The new 2017 Ford Focus Electric is coming.

 

While we already knew that the price starts at 29.120 USD in the USA, now we have official EPA ratings as you can see in the image below.

The 115 miles (185 km) range is on par with most recently improved electric cars, but the efficiency is still a disappointment.

 

Let’s translate these MPGe figures to more understandable numbers.

17,75 kWh/100km

Remember that EPA figures measure plug-to-wheels consumption, this means that the internal charger efficiency matters.

I’ll add the 2017 Ford Focus Electric to the Range and efficiency table.

 

But efficiency isn’t the worst characteristic in this electric car. The battery take a lot of space in the trunk.

 

 

Yet, the more the merrier and considering the price, this electric car is actually good.

 

What do you think about the 2017 Ford Focus Electric?

More than natural resources, are wasted human resources that bothers me the most. That's why I'm a strong advocate of a society based on cooperation, not competition, that helps every individual to reach his full potential so that he can contribute back to society.

    Like you said, the trunk is much too small, it’s a big turn-off. It’s sad because at this price, it would be a top seller with a 33,5kwh battery with TMS. Also, I thought that this car would be more efficient on the highway.

    Ford also added a CCS inlet (50 kW) with MY2017. I consider that worth noticing.
