The Ford Focus Electric is Ford’s first full production, all-electric passenger vehicle. The new 2017 version is equipped with the a 33.5 kWh battery (in place of the previous 23 kWh pack) and for the very first time, a DC fast charging inlet (CCS Combo) is also part of the package.
It is equipped with a 6.6 kW fully integrated onboard charger that can deliver 140 miles (NEDC) driving range with 2-3 hours charging and its sophisticated powertrain uses regenerative braking to capture up to 95 per cent of kinetic energy normally lost during the braking process.
The all-electric motor is designed to help reduce energy loss and heat generation while reducing your carbon footprint.
The Ford Focus electric is a refined and well-engineered vehicle and also the most eco-conscious car you’ll sit in: The interior has seat fabric made from 100% recycled materials and cushions made of bio-based foam derived from plant seed oils.
Focus Electric also features new user interface SmartGauge, which enables owners to monitor, manage and reduce energy consumption to maximise vehicle range.
The initial acceleration is startling as the electric motor delivers its maximum 245lb ft of torque virtually from a standstill. It falters away above 50mph, however, as the torque slopes off, although the 90mph top speed is easily attainable if you aren’t bothered about range.

"I have been driving a Nissan Leaf supplied by DriveElectric for over three years. The car is fantastic, is well engineered and a pleasure to drive. It feels very futuristic and clean and conventional internal combustion cars now seem primitive in comparison, so I will never buy another. I love the way the Leaf's satnav helps me to find charging points and have used it to travel quite significant distances without any problems."
"It's not just a great EV, it's a great car. It's quiet, it's comfortable, and it's spacious. It's safe. The driving experience is fantastic."
"My BMW i3 is the only car I have ever owned that gives me a grin every time I drive it. Cannot fault the service from DriveElectric, this is my second EV supplied by them and I'll be back for my third next year."
"Vicky at DriveElectric was a great help through the leasing process, including helping to organise test drives, putting us in touch with the right people and answering all our questions. As this was for our first electric car it was a great experience to feel relaxed heading into somewhat unknown territory."
