2016 Ford Focus Electric

The Focus Electric is a 5-door hatchback electric car produced by Ford Motor Company. It was originally released for the U.S. market in 2011, while in Europe came one year later. It is the company’s first full production, all-electric passenger vehicle. It is based on the standard, third generation of Focus. These two cars share glider, so we can say that except powertrain, everything else is almost identical. After three years of production, company plans to make some modifications, in order to keep model fresh. The 2016 Ford Focus Electric will come with several changes, both outside and inside the car, while powertrain will remain pretty much unchanged.
