Ford Focus Electric EPA Rated at Combined 105 MPG
The 2012 Ford Focus Electric has been EPA certified at a combined 105 mpg, making it the most fuel efficient five-passenger vehicle in America. That breaks down to 99 mpg city and 110 highway. The EPA-approved Focus Electric label also certifies that the car has a range of 76 miles on a single charge, but Ford says it can be driven up to 100 miles on a single charge depending on driving habits. To put those figures in perspective, the average commute is 29 miles a day.
Ford says that the EPA-approved label will indicate that Focus Electric buyers can save up to $9,700 in fuel costs over five years compared to an average, new vehicle.
Ford will ramp up Focus Electric retail production in the first half of 2012 for dealership availability in California, New York and New Jersey. By the end of 2012, Focus Electric will be available in 19 markets across the U.S.
