In late 2016 Ford will improve the Focus Electric to compete with the new 30 kWh Nissan Leaf.
A little more range and fast charging will not be enough to be a successful electric car, since Chevrolet Bolt will arrive at the same time and it will have the double of range. A price drop should also happen.
Can 100 and 200 mile range electric cars coexist? Yes if the lower range is compensated also with lower price. The more the merrier.
Since now Ford promises that at least 40 % of their cars will be electrified by 2020, a small Ford Fiesta Electric would be great in Europe.
