Ford hits the electric car market with the Ford Focus Electric

Neat! Ford leaps into the electric car market with the Ford Focus Electric, to hit the market later this year. A full electric vehicle with a 100 mile range and charges faster than the Nissan Leaf with liquid cooled and heated batteries allowing the car to operate at a greater range of temperatures than the Leaf.

The all-electric version of the popular Ford Focus is set to be launched in 19 markets in late 2011. The 100 mile range, five door hatchback provides many features that make it an enticing EV package, including higher speed charging, highly customizable displays, and liquid cooled/heated batteries.
