The 2015 Focus Electric is Ford’s zero emissions vehicle that builds on the most popular nameplate in the world. Ford Focus Electric was first introduced in 2012 and was Ford’s first fully electric vehicle. Focus has evolved into a real option for daily commuters looking to drive a comfortable and powerful green car. The 2015 Focus Electric takes on competitors like Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf with its updated features and always impressive range. Let’s look at the specs and upgrades that make the new Focus such a compelling option.
2015 Focus Electric New Features
While most of the design features stay the same, 2015 Focus Electric offers customers some exciting updates to last year’s model. MyFord and MyKey are now standard, as these help drivers have a more enjoyable driving experience. MyKey is a great tool for parents to encourage safe driving on teens, as it can be programmed to restrict speeds, radio volume and encourage seatbelt use. As part of the standard technology package, Focus Electric includes a rear-view camera, hill start assist and HD radio. The interior also gets an upgraded leather-wrapped parking brake and an all-new center console with two USB charging ports and easy access climate controls.
The new Electric Focus almost completely shares its exterior with its gasoline sibling. A few cosmetic changes to the grille, rear lamps and tailgate differentiate the electric model from the rest of the line-up.
A Great Platform
With an all-electric powertrain and a single speed automatic transmission, the 2015 Ford Focus Electric is a great option for most drivers. Based on the fuel-powered 2015 Focus, the electric model gets a tried and tested frame that customers around the world already trust. As part of this great platform, Ford Focus Electric inherits the best safety features, like seven standard airbags, electronic traction and stability control, and integrated hands free.
Remote Control? Check
As long as you have access to your Ford app and an internet connection, you can be in touch with your Focus Electric. The app allows owners to communicate with the vehicle in different ways, such as locating it by GPS or by remotely locking or unlocking the doors. It also allows for the app to receive vehicle information like charge level and alerts, even to pre-condition the car so owners can step in to their desired temperature.
Range Extended, Charge Time Reduced
The 2015 Ford Focus Electric gets an impressive 76 mile range on a single charge, allowing most city commuters to take daily trips to and from work with ease. Additionally, with the available 240-volt charging station, a full charge takes only 3.5 hours.
