focus-electric4

Available in Los Angeles at Sunrise Ford of Fontana

Despite being a plugin compact, you won’t feel any hesitations for the 2014 Ford Focus Electric. Based heavily on the 2014 Focus Titanium, the Focus Electric offers a plush interior with much style and appeal. Many of the optional features on the regular Focus come standard in the Focus Electric. Although the Focus Electric is limited in cargo capacity because of its rechargeable battery, the nice cabin with its high quality materials pretty much makes up for it. You are sure to like the interior features offered by the 2014 Ford Focus Electric. Inside, you’ll find heated seats, eco-friendly cloth upholstery, power locks and windows, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a tilt-telescoping steering wheel, push-button start, cruise control, dual zone climate control, an adjustable driver seat.

For its dashboard, the Focus Electric has electronic features that include Ford Sync, an 8” screen with MyFord Touch interface, a navigation system, a 9-speaker Sony audio system with CD player, HD and satellite radio, and Sirius XM Traffic and Travel Link.

For its engine, the 2014 Ford Focus Electric uses a 107KW electric motor connected to a lithium ion battery at its trunk. This setup generates an output of 143 horsepower and 181 lbs. of torque. This engine has a front drivetrain. It is estimated that the Focus Electric can go up to 76 miles on a full charge with a top speed of 84 mph. It will take about four hours to fully charge the battery if plugged in a 240V outlet. On a 120V outlet, it takes longer which is about 18 hours.

According to critics, the 2014 Ford Focus Electric delivers a ride experience that is smooth but pretty sharp. Its acceleration is pretty good and it handles well enough to maneuver through traffic, something which you normally don’t expect in a plugin car.
