The new Focus EV has a bigger range! Now it could drive over 110 miles

According to a spec sheet secured by Inside EVs, the Focus EV will feature a 33.5 kilowatt-hour battery, compared to the 23-kWh version for the 2016 model year.

The new Focus EV has a bigger range! Now it could drive over 110 miles

With capacity jumping by about 45 percent, the Focus EV's single-charge range should grow from its current 76 miles to 110 or more. That would put the Focus EV onpar with the single-charge range of the new Hyundai Ioniq Electric as well as the Nissan Leaf.




Note that the Leaf is due – some would say overdue – for an upgrade, though, and so its range should jump as well.


The Focus EV remains a fairly low-volume vehicle, though. Through July, Ford has sold only 504 units this year, down 47 percent from a year earlier.
