2017 Ford Focus Electric gets EPA ratings

2017 Ford Focus Electric

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.

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

However, efficiency isn’t the worst characteristic in this electric car. The battery takes 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?

I grew up on a tough neighborhood and am not a privileged guy, my true nature is violent, even if I try to hide it because I'm not proud of it. I try to overcome my violent nature by learning more about geeky things like batteries, but I'm far from being an expert and don't pretend to be one. I also graduated in Sociology, to learn more about others and pacify myself.

  1. 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.

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