Ford Focus EV

Ford’s Focus is another high-profile contender in the EV gauntlet and has just started hitting the show-rooms. Ford is looking to sell 5000 of the all-electric compact a year.

Thanks to its impressive range numbers, the Focus EV is quickly proving to be a solid contender in the same space as the Leaf and Volt. According to Ford, each full charge can get you up to 76 miles, which is just three miles further than the Nissan Leaf.

There are a few things that make the Focus really stand out against its rivals. The three and a half hour charging time on the 240-volt charger, means it charges a bit faster than its competition, and with an electric motor that boasts 141 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque, the Focus can move pretty quickly too.

Buyers of Ford’s all-electric compact will also be able to use the MyFord mobile app, which allows users track and schedule the charging of the Focus, remotely. The app also lets you plan your trips, monitor your charge, find the nearest charging station. The MyFord mobile app also helps you get the most out of each charge, by providing you the most-efficient route to your destination.
