Electric car enthusiasts rejoice, recent reports have announced that the Electric Ford Focus will be available to purchase in late 2012. While many have waited patiently for well over a year for this car, the wait was worth it. The new Electric Focus will be equipped with a 141-horse power electric motor that charges in less than three hours (better than the leading competitor), a eco friendly interior (much of which is made from recycled water bottles), and a Microsoft driven computer system that can be synced with your smart phone. While the price tag is expected to be about $39,500, that figure is not so large when the Electric Focus only costs about $3 to charge, instead of $3 a gallon for a gas-powered car.
While the Electric Focus’ sales success is yet to be seen, the car appears to be a formidable contender in the electric car market.
