Understanding Electric Vehicle Charging
Short Description: 
Charging a car is far more convenient, comfortable and clean than pumping gas. It's a different experience with some subtleties that takes some time to appreciate. Potential EV owners might want to get a head start on the learning curve, and maybe save a bunch of money as a result.

Ford Focus Electric

The Focus Electric is based on Ford's next generation Focus body. The vehicle is powered by 23 kWh of Li-ion batteries with active liquid cooling. The Focus Electric will communicate with the owners smart phone via MyFord Mobile. The inside of the Focus Electric consists of two LCD screens with Microsoft Sync and MyFord Touch. Using the five-way buttons on the steering wheel, you can customize your view in the two 4.2-inch LCD instrument cluster screens to show your battery charge status, distance to the next charging station and more.
