It's been nearly a full year since Ford
made it clear that the automaker is planning to roll out an all-electric version of its Focus, and now we have our first glimpse at what to expect from the car. The Blue Oval has dusted off its first teaser of the New Year with a shot of the charging port on the EV Focus
. Interestingly enough, Ford
has decided to skip the Detroit Auto Show
as a venue for the vehicle's unveil, opting instead for the electrified Focus to take a bow at this year's Consumer Electronics Show
in Las Vegas, which runs from January 6 to 9.
Ford has previously announced that when the Focus
Electric hits the market, it will initially only be available in Washington, D.C. and just 14 states
. Buyers can expect to find a range of around 100 miles thanks to an array of lithium-polymer batteries supplied by LG Chem. The attentive of you will recognize that supplier as the same company that serves up the cells for the Chevrolet Volt
We'll have the full details about Ford's Focus Electric
in the coming days, so stay tuned.
