2012 Ford Focus EV Priced From $39,995
Electric cars don’t come cheap and one fine example is the upcoming 2012 Ford Focus EV which will set you back $39,995, including the $795 delivery & handling fees, which means that it costs more than 2x compared to the entry-level 5-door hatchback Focus SE. The good news is that you’ll be able to get it for $32,475 as the car is eligible for a $7,500 federal tax credit.
The car will be available in one trim and it will have the following features: a 4.2-inch LCD display in the cluster, 17-inch alloys, HID headlamps, push-button start, rear camera with rear parking sensor, voice-activated navigation system, hands-free SYNC Bluetooth connectivity with traffic, direction and information services, Sony audio system with nine speakers, MyFord Mobile App and SIRIUS Satellite Radio and HD Radio.
According to the Blue Oval, the only options available for the 2012 Focus EV are two paint colors and the leather seats.
This green Focus features an electric motor that produces 123 hp and 181 lb.-ft of torque and has a single-speed transmission that motivates the front wheels. The car can reach a maximum speed of 136 km/h (84 mph) and charging the battery takes a little over three hours when using a regular 240-volt charging station.
At first, the Focus EV will be available in sunny California as well as the New York / New Jersey regions, while the rest of the areas will get it in spring 2012.
