Expert Rating

4.5 (Excellent)
110 City / 99 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Choosing Your Focus Electric

Ford Focus Electric Interior

As in previous years, the Focus Electric is powered by a 143-horsepower electric motor that's fed by a lithium-ion battery pack and paired with a single-speed automatic transmission You're good to travel for up to 76 miles on a full charge. Top speed is limited to 84 mph, but the Electric can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 9.6 seconds, which matches some gasoline-powered compacts. Recharging a fully depleted battery pack takes about four hours on a 240-volt home charging station.

Since the large battery pack would virtually eliminate the sedan body's trunk, the Electric comes only as a hatchback with up to 34 cubic feet of cargo space. It's also lavishly equipped relative to other Focus models. Standard fare includes a rearview camera, keyless ignition, remote start, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, and a 10-speaker Sony sound system with HD radio.

In terms of technology, you get a navigation system and the new Sync 3 infotainment interface. Exclusive to the Electric are xenon headlamps, LED taillamps, and specific 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Like many EVs, the Focus Electric comes just "one way." The only factory option to consider is leather upholstery, which automatically comes with a power driver seat.

CarsDirect Tip

Regular price cuts have kept the Electric downright affordable for a well-equipped EV. Also keep in mind that you may qualify for a federal tax credit up to $7,500, in addition to any state or local incentives where you live.
