2013 Ford Focus Electric 4dr Hatchback (electric DD)

Review

I test drove 2013 leaf a few time and did not like the drive dynamics of that and its power with smaller electric motor. The focus has bigger electric motor or 143HP vs 105HP of nissan but yet it has the same range as nissan (76 vs 75 miles). The drive dynamic and cornering are both solid, reminds me of the 3 series. My other car is a 535 xdrive so this is mostly for commute and free charge at work lots of location in Bay area, CA. Both the interior build and cabin noise are much better quality than Nissan Leaf but either one you can't go wrong with a lease deal. I'm getting the 240v installed at home for $1000 from a slingshot company flat rate.

Favorite Features

180 torque, 17" rim and firm handling, sporty feeling handling and fun to drive. Supports Bluetooth music over the air and iPhone integration.

Suggested Improvements

Bigger trunk space (although I use it for commute so it doesn't bother me at all), hide batteries on the chassis like telstra. Better range of 100miles?
