For those who have been anticipating the release of an all-electric new Ford vehicle - now is your chance to get ahead of the waiting game. The automaker is giving consumers an opportunity to pre-order the all new Ford Focus EV before it even hits showrooms. While the electric Focus is not the first EV to surface, it very well may be the best. A bold statement? Perhaps so, but we at Jerry's Ford Alexandria are more than willing to share our reasoning.
In addition to a strong brand backing, the Ford Focus EV maintains several other defining characteristics that put it ahead of the competition. Take charge time, for example. We all know that unbelievably long charge time is a major deterrent for those on the fence about electric vehicles. In a fast-paced world, committing your car to extensive time plugged into an outlet just doesn't sit well. That is why consumers in the Washington D.C. area and beyond will be thrilled to know that Ford has equipped its EV with batteries that can recharge in only three hours. This is half the time it takes to recharge a LEAF.
Another positive point sure to grab attention comes in the form of bang for your buck. At just under 40 grand, buyers can own an environmentally-friendly, convenient Ford Focus EV without breaking the bank. If a consumer qualifies for a federal tax credit, that price may be lowered even more. Amazing that, at that price, Ford's first-ever EV comes with all of the following innovations:- EcoRoute mapping system - determines how far users can travel at existing charge levels
- Advanced high-voltage lithium-ion battery system
- Single-speed transmission - provides a quiet, energy-efficient ride
- Regenerative braking and Brake Coach
The Ford Focus EV is slated for release in a select number of markets beginning next year. Jerry's Ford Alexandria is pleased to announce that Virginia and the Washington D.C. area have made the list.
