Ford drives first European Electric Focus cars off the production line

Ford drives first European Electric Focus cars off the production line

Ford has produced its first zero emission Focus car in Europe, as it seeks to accelerate into the ultra low emissions vehicle market. The auto giant confirmed the first Electric Focus had rolled off the production line at its Saarlouis plant in Germany, where it already makes the internal combustion engine Focus, Focus ST, and Kuga.

Ford has integrated Focus Electric production directly into the established Ford Focus production line at Saarlouis. As such orders will be taken on a case-by-case basis, with the production line remaining the same for both the conventional Ford Focus and the new Focus Electric.

Offering a 100-mile range, the Focus Electric features an advanced electric motor and lithium-ion battery power train that achieves a top speed of 84mph. It is the latest in a string of electric plug-in hybrid vehicles that should hit European roads in growing numbers over the next year, including the new version of the Nissan Leaf, the Toyota plug-in Prius, and the Tesla Model S.
