Vehicle Electric 4dr Hatchback (electric DD)
Review Six months and 6500 miles later, I am ready to provide my comments regarding the 2016 Ford Focus Electric. Pros: 1) Excellent exterior and interior design. Specifically, the car looks awesome at night inside and outside. I love the option to select your choice of interior accent lighting (I chose blue) and I love how the headlight and the mirror parking lights shine at night. 2) The Sony stereo is very good. Sounds good. I really appreciate having the CD player because I use it. 3) I love the blue circle light at the charge port that indicates your charge level. It is beautiful. 4) The free six-month Sirus radio is great. 5) The free navigation is not too bad; however, it sometimes does not have the latest map information. 6) The overall instrument accessibility from the driver standpoint is very good. 7) The car is fairly comfortable to ride in. There are plenty of room for the passengers. 8) The panoramic rear view mirrors are very useful. Whoever came up with this idea is brilliant. 9) The backup camera is so helpful. The guide lines are very accurate. As a result, parking in a tight stop is so easy. I love it! Cons: 1) The workmanship could be better. The built in Detroit sticker should be removed. The fit and finish could be better. Things do not line up and I even had to push the rear license LED light back into the car because it was not installed correctly. I also had to push the fabric near the windshield back into the frame. For a $29,000 car, the workers need to do a better job. 2) The range indicator is not reliable. For example, it would show 92-mile range at full charge but two minutes of driving at 35 MPH later, it would show 74-mile range . During winter, the driving range indicator is even worse. This is my second EV and I was starting to have range anxiety when the temperature dipped below 32F with the 2016 Ford Electric. I only used the heated seat feature when I absolutely had to. I didn't even dare to turn on the heater. 3) The Ford app for the car is slow to react and it it poorly designed (at least for an iPhone). The local rankings is such a joke. They included cars sitting in the dealers' parking lots in the ranking. If Ford is serious about the EV business (as mentioned by its CEO Mark Field earlier this year), they need to hire better app coders. Worst of all, they forgot to include the tire pressure information in the app (GM provides the tire PSI information for EVs in its app). 4) The car accelerates slower than other EVs. Merging into the highway has to be carefully monitored. 5) The car's efficiency could be better. I usually only get 3 - 3.5 mile/Kw. Having said that, stop and go traffic does bump it up to 4 mile/kw. 6) The trunk space is seriously lacking due to the placement of the huge battery Putting the rear seats back helps.. 7) The turning radius is large. I don't have the exact radius number but it is bigger than the turning radius from the Spark EV and Bolt. I always need to be careful when I tried to make an U-turn. 8) The car would occasionally jerk hard when I got off the highway going 55 MPH to a complete stop. This has happened six times. I might report this to NHTSA if it happens again. It felt like an ICE car having transmission issues when it happened. 9) The 2016 Focus Electric does not have the Fast DC charging port. Level 2 charging is your best bet. The 2017 Ford Electric with its bigger battery and longer range is a better bet. Nevertheless, this is a perfect car for commuters who are stuck in traffic (such as 405/5 in LA area, I-5 in San Diego, or 101/680/880 in Bay area). The generous Ford lease deal is what got me. This is not a perfect car but the affordable Ford lease deal at $140 a month (everything included) with no money out of pocket is just too good to be true. I definitely would not pay the full sticker price for this car. I would recommend leasing it if you can get a good deal.
