2012 Ford Focus Electric

The Blue Oval automaker has announced this week that the upcoming 2012 Focus Electric will be the first all-electric vehicle that has seating for five people that will be able to have a fuel efficiency rating of 100 miles per gallon equivalent (100 MPGe), which is 1 MPGe more than the Nissan Leaf and 7 MPGe more than the Chevrolet Volt.

To understand how economical the car will be, it will cost you about $2.10 to use it for 80 miles. This figure is based on the amount of energy it takes and on the U.S. national average cost of a kilowatt-hour. Travelling with a traditional gasoline-powered car that returns 30 mpg will cost you $8.80, with a price per gallon of $3.30.
