Join the Conversation About the EPA Estimated 110 MPGe Ford Focus Electric
MAR

We asked the question, “How would you celebrate an EPA-estimated 110 MPGe?” when we announced that the official fuel economy numbers for the 2012 Ford Focus Electric. And some of your ideas were very fantastic!

Matthew D. thinks we should give one away in 110 cities around the U.S.

Peggy L. would do a happy dance with the whole world watching.

Jeff M. would spin donuts around the gas station.

Blair P. simply said “Road Trip!”

Fernando H. says this one is easy: By drag racing a Chevrolet Volt!

Matthew B. would go for a drive.

It’s time to add your voice to the conversation. Share your opinion with a comment below. What would you do to celebrate?

The 2012 Ford Focus Electric has an official EPA-estimated 110 miles-per-gallon equivalent (MPGe) in the city and 99 MPGe on the highway, with a combined EPA-estimated 105 MPGe. The car features an advanced charging system that allows the car’s battery to fully recharge in four hours using available 240-volt outlets that can be installed in residential garages.

MPGe is used by the EPA to compare energy consumption of electric vehicles such as the Ford Focus Electric, as well as other alternative fuel vehicles, with the fuel economy of conventional internal combustion vehicles expressed as miles per U.S. gallon.

Ele T According to Ford's site, range is 100MPGe. No I did not type that incorrectly. Ford says the range is it's mileage. That's like saying "how big is the tank? 34 MPG" Stupid, they need to fix that.

John T How does offering a number of these great cars to be used as Taxi's throughout America at a discounted price. A great way to market the car while helping the air quality at the same time. And creating a nationwide U.S.A. contest involving educators that have excelled while teaching others. Would involve all public, private schools as well as universities. Great car, incredible style inside and out. Congrats.

Christopher H I would buy one right away. If I could aford one. But they cost so much I can not afford it. Or even if the would give me a loan at payments I can afford I would get one too. But they are so stingy with loans and the payment they set it at.

shaun I can't respond to the question about how the Focus-e drives, but the Nissan leaf is awesome and I'm sure the Ford is the same. 100% torque off the line and no reason not to use it all the time. Smooth, fast, remarkably responsive and precise to drive. Will never go back to the Flintsone era of contained explosions.

I have looked at the website and I can not find how far it will go on a charge. Does anyone know?

Ralph Headley Need to have one in which one could easily travel 500-600 miles a day. I might be interested then.

Cheryl This car and all others to come are our future like it or not. Keep up with the social design. R.Y.R. is located in Memphis, TN and is in a very open position to offer assistance to Everyone that read this message and are involved with me having an opportunity to drive one of your electric cars here in Memphis, TN and promote the first hand experience operating an electric car here in the southern parts and assisting others with the transportation a maybe once in a lifetime experience with an actual real electric car. Thats what i would do to celebrate the new arrival to the south.

Branden Strot i bet you 10 billion dollars that if electric cars and hybrids were affordable, people would actually buy them... they fail because the people who would drive them cannot afford them.

Branden Strot what about Mr. Fusion?

Robert P rent you focus to 150,000 people in the USA - for 100 dollars a month let them use it for 6 months - keep track weekly by a written form they have to fill out to find out what their thoughts are and what they would reccommend for changes - after 6 months review all and make the changes then drop the price by 5000 dollars and sell 4 million electric focus by making the changes

Carl W Let me know when 1st drive reviews are happening. And how about a report from Google ownership experience

James in 1984 Ford had a Tempo 4 door DIESEL.. yes that is right DIESEL Tempo that got consistantly 50 mpg, it also yielded us over 300k miles before the body gave out to Pennsylvania rust. Why did they give up on that?

My comment is how far will it go.

Bill Weaver What is the cost to recharge the batteries. This cost has to be figured into cost per mile.

Akinsanmi Fatuase Let us focus on increasing the efficiency of the Internal Combustion Engine. I have an invention which is highly efficient than the century old ICE which we still depend on. Will FORD ask for it and design it?

Don Clark I remember that 100MPG carb. Complete nonsense. Simple physics. Fuels only burn at certain air/fuel ratio's. Take your displacement X RPM X time = not gonna happen. Can't even get a motorcycle to deliver 100MPG.

Adam Jason Lemus I read an report about the ecological damage caused by the manufacturing of batteries for hybrids, plug in hybrids and pure electric cars. It would be better for the environment to run our cars on panda meat than electric

Feux Barron Whatever happened to the 100 mile a gallon carburetor? I saw the design plans from the inventor in an issue of The Rosicrucion Order back in the 1970's. My uncle was a member, wish I had a copy of it.

George Tank Ward Either we start now with electric car and trucks or we just die. U can't stop evolving. We would still be riding wagons or stem power cars. So u tell me do we find something else or end up on the horse and buggy?

John Holst I like the idea of an electric car, or a plug-in hybrid. But, as long as the cost differential is so high, forget it. My '12 Focus pulls 40-43 mpg highway, and has been consistent 33-35 in my normal mixed driving, so it would never make financial sense for me to switch...especially when the Focus was just $15k, new. Maybe if gas hit $10/gallon it would make sense, but if that happened, we'd be in a world of hurt economically and no one could afford the price tag then anyway. But perhaps these technological jumps will help to bring the costs down to more achievable levels for the masses.

Taylor Franklin Electric isn't the way to go. You know the size of batteries plus how many you'd need to power a light duty F series truck? Why do you think it only for small cars? That's ok just keep shoving money out. Did they not see the results of the Nissan Leaf? That car is not selling at all.

Taylor Franklin Such a waste of money. These electric cars are worthless. Stop putting millions towards electirc cars. They aren't better for the environment. What are people to do when thre batteries explode or they have to replace them? Acid fields. That's what. Don't forget the cost. Electric is VERY exspensive.

William Ross Good, good, now produce an electric F series light duty truck , built in America by Americans with American manufactured part.

Lance King I agree with Alex! .....gas prices might be high, but my dated 2007 Focus does ok on MPG. It would be a BIG jump in my monthly payment for the new electric ........
