2018 Ford Focus Electric teased

The 2018 Ford Focus Electric is making its online debut courtesy of an official teaser image prior to next year’s launch. It will feature a newly developed fast-charge DC system allowing owners to recharge the battery pack to an 80% capacity in around 30 minutes. This will be enough battery juice to grant a range of around 100 miles which should be more than enough for a day. In addition, the all-electric compact hatchback will employ a SmartGauge featuring an EcoGuide LCD instrument cluster which will be highly customizable and will allow the drive monitor the car’s energy usage.

The 2018 Ford Focus Electric will receive a bespoke Brake Coach that will teach the driver how to maximize the energy obtained via the vehicle’s built-in Regenerative Braking system. Other details about the model are scarce at the moment, but the Blue Oval company mentions it will feature agile handling and steering along with a “fun-to-drive character.”

Production of the model will kick off towards the end of next year which means it will effectively go on sale as a 2018 model year. Ford goes on to specify they plan on selling the zero-emission Focus in North America as well as in Europe. There’s no word about pricing yet, but we will find it out in the months to come.
