We all want to do our part to help the environment, but we also want to find ways to save ourselves money. The 2016 Ford Focus Electric takes an American favorite and makes it eco and budget friendly. Watch the video below to see what this supercar is capable of and why you should consider a used model for your next electric car.
The video explains that the Focus Electric is easy to operate and fun to drive. This 100% electric vehicle has an impressive EPA estimated electric range of 110 city MPGe. Not only does mileage like that look good for your wallet, it also looks good for the environment, thanks to zero CO2 emissions and zero oil changes.
With regenerative braking, the Focus Electric can recycle more than 90% of the typically used energy to help recharge the battery. Speaking of charging, you can do it from the comfort of your home using an average 120-volt household outlet. Ford also offers an AeroVironment 240-volt home charging station, which can have your car ready for the road in just 3.6 hours.
You can monitor the Focus Electric’s charging status and energy use right from your smartphone using the MyFord Mobile app. The app even allows you to schedule charging times from your phone or computer so you only charge when electricity is cheapest.
