Ford Europe Starts Focus Electric Production
Ford has begun a new chapter in its vehicle manufacturing history with the start of production of the all-new Ford Focus Electric – the first full-electric vehicle to be built by Ford in Europe.
The zero-emission Focus Electric is spearheading Ford’s line-up of electrified and highly fuel-efficient vehicles, and will be joined in Europe by the Ford C MAX Energi plug-in hybrid electric vehicle next year, followed by the all-new Ford Mondeo Hybrid soon after.
Developed as a “One Ford” global vehicle, the Focus Electric features an advanced electric motor and lithium-ion battery powertrain that produces 145PS and achieves a top speed of 84mph. Each vehicle is equipped with a 6.6kW fully integrated onboard charger that can achieve a driving range of around 60 miles with 2-3 hours charging from a 32 A power supply. A full charge of the Focus Electric battery in 3-4 hours will deliver a 100-mile range.*
