Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Ford Focus Electric. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 1 (Yazaki - SAE J1772)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 10h15m 6 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 6h15m 10 mph

All about the Ford Focus Electric

No longer available

This electric vehicle is no longer in production and not available to buy new. The Ford Focus Electric was available from September 2013 until October 2015. Financial data like price, leasing and company car tax were applicable to the final year of availability of the Ford Focus Electric.

Pricing

The Ford Focus Electric had an On The Road Price (OTR) of £33,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Ford Focus Electric was eligible for a Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £5,000. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Ford Focus Electric is £28,500.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Ford Focus Electric is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Ford Focus Electric is 107 kW (143 hp). The maximum torque is 184 lb-ft. The Ford Focus Electric is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 11.4 seconds. The top speed is 84 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Ford Focus Electric has a total capacity of 23 kWh. The usable capacity is 19.6 kWh (estimate). A range of about 65 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 45 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 100 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 1 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 6.6 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours 30 minutes. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 10 hours 15 minutes.

Rapid charging is not possible.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Ford Focus Electric is about 300 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 134 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 435 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 195 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Ford Focus Electric emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
