Press Kit Description

Ford begins a new chapter in its vehicle manufacturing history with the start of production of the all-new Focus Electric in Saarlouis, Germany. The zero-emission Focus Electric is the first full-electric vehicle to be built by Ford in Europe and is spearheading Ford’s line-up of electrified and highly fuel-efficient vehicles.

The Focus Electric is equipped with a 6.6 kW fully integrated onboard charger that can deliver 100 km driving range with 2-3 hours charging and its sophisticated powertrain uses regenerative braking to capture up to 95 per cent of kinetic energy normally lost during the braking process.

Focus Electric also features new user interface SmartGauge, which enables owners to monitor, manage and reduce energy consumption to maximise vehicle range.
