If you’re ready to make the crossover to an EV, a used 2014 Ford Focus Electric demands your attention.
This car is a safety superstar, thanks to a gaggle of airbags, electronic traction and stability control, and 4-wheel anti-lock brakes. The folks at the IIHS gave the Focus a top “Good” score in nearly every category, including roof strength and moderate overlap. The government was also pleased with this vehicle, awarding it a perfect five-star rating.
Powered by both a 107-kilowatt electric motor and a lithium-ion battery pack, this hatchback produces 143 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The EPA rated it at 110 miles per gallon equivalent city and 99 mpgehwy. According to an Autotrader review, this means that the Focus uses just one-third of the energy as a gas economy car.
The 76-mile electric range should be more than enough for most commuters to get to the office and back. Hook the Focus up to the Ford 240-volt charging station and this EV can be ready to hit the road in just four hours.
