Ford opens online reservations for the 2012 Focus electric

By: Michelle Koueiter

People can now place their online orders for the 2012 Ford Focus electric, Ford’s first all-electric passenger car.

The electric Focus carries a base sticker price of $39,995 including shipping charges, but that price does not reflect any tax credits available.

The electric Focus comes standard with MyFord Touch with an eight-inch touch screen, two 4.2-inch color LCD displays in the gauge cluster for EV monitoring screens, and the MyFord Mobile App for remotely monitoring the charge status of the lithium-ion battery.

Ford says the battery can be recharged in about three hours using a 240-volt charging station.

Other standard features include HID headlights, a rear camera with a parking sensor, push-button start and voice-activated navigation. Hands-free Bluetooth, a nine-speaker audio system, Sirius satellite radio and HD radio are also included.

The only optional features on Focus Electrics are leather seats and two paint colors.

Focus electrics will first be available in California, New York and New Jersey. Supply will expand to 15 other markets early next year.
