The first version of the Ford’s Focus Electric Vehicle just got EPA certification of 110 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe). That’s city rating and 99 MPGe on the highway.
Furthermore, the Focus Electric Vehicle (EV) also got 105 MPGe combined. This is higher than the Nissan Leaf by 6 MPGe.
According to Ford reps, The Focus EV has more passenger room and a faster charging system that allows for a full recharge in nearly half the time of Nissan Leaf.
However as Green Car Reports notes:
Both the Focus Electric and the Leaf are five-door hatchbacks the size of conventional compact cars, with rated ranges between 80 and 85 miles.
The report comes via LeftLaneNews, which sources it to a dealer document it acquired.
The site also reports that Ford will similarly discount any remaining 2014 Focus Electric models now on dealer lots.
