There will be a new Ford Focus electric soon and it seems that increasingly we will know more details. At the end of last year the oval brand announced that it would have a Quick charging system. Thanks to it to be charged 80% of the Focus battery in just 30 minutes. Also announcing to an improvement of their autonomy, although today know one of your most important points: the battery.
The update of the Ford Focus electric will take a 33.5 kWh lithium-ion battery. This is an increase of 46% over the previous 23 kWh battery. Initially we were told that it would have an autonomy of about 161 kilometers (100 miles) but now the source tells us that it will be somewhat higher. Expected that it may take 177 kilometers (110 miles), more or less as the new Hyundai Ioniq electric.
It seems that the Ford Focus electric will not be much to pray and we can see it this year. In United States expected sales to begin in December, so the vehicle could be presented at the Salon in Los Angeles, which takes place in November. To the rest of the markets could come some time later, so probably in Europe do not see it until the beginning of 2017.
In addition to the new battery which we talked about and rapid charging system, there will be more news. At the moment we know that the electric Ford Focus will debut the new color of White Gold body and 17-inch alloy wheels. This model will be the first of a series of electric that will be coming. By 2020, Ford wants to have 13 models of this type, assuming a 40% of its range.
