The 2018 Ford Focus Electric is a battery-electric five-door compact hatchback that directly competes with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, Nissan Leaf, and Volkswagen e-Golf. Like all, except the 238-mile Bolt EV, its recently expanded range falls between 105 and 125 miles, seemingly the norm these days. The Ford Focus Electric comes only in a single trim level, roughly equivalent to a higher-end gasoline model, and its sole change for 2018 is one new paint color.
The 7-year-old electric Focus shares some advantages with its gasoline counterparts, but it’s clear that Ford isn’t that interested in making the car truly competitive. Last year it finally got a battery-capacity upgrade and DC fast-charging capability, making it at least possible to take longer roads trips in it. But it remains a niche product selling a few thousand a year, versus 100 times that for its gasoline brethren, and it’s neither sold nor serviced in large swathes of the U.S.
The styling echoes that of the conventional Focus, though there’s no EV version of the Focus four-door sedan offered. Without training, you’ll never know it’s an electric car by looking at either the inside or the outside.
Ford has introduced the new Outrageous Green Metallic tinted colour for the 2018 Focus Electric. This bold new hue has been introduced in line with Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year, Greenery.
Barb Whalen, Ford colour and materials design manager, said that her team aim to predict future trends to deliver a ‘vibrant and diverse pallet’ for customers.
2018 Ford Focus Electric Interior and Exterior
Inside, expect the same rationalisation of the dashboard layout as we’ve seen in the new Fiesta, with fewer buttons and many features controlled through an eight-inch touchscreen. This display could well be offered as the minimum on all versions of the car, with some higher-end editions getting an even bigger set-up.
Ford has unveiled the new 2018 Focus Electric, and it’s giving “going green” a whole new meaning. That’s because when we say new, we mean it – the 2018 Ford Focus Electric features an all-new Outrageous Green Metallic exterior color option as well as an all-new fully optimized driving range. What that means for you is that the new Ford Focus Electric will be more stylish and sporty than ever before with a driving range that blows away the 2018 model year version. Are you intrigued? We thought you would be, so let’s take a closer look at the 2018 Ford Focus Electric’s driving range and new exterior color option.
As we mentioned, the 2018 Ford Focus Electric’s new exterior color option has been dubbed Outrageous Green Metallic. Not only is the new color a delightful play on words thanks to the new Ford Focus Electric being such an impressive “green car,” but it also takes its inspiration from nature and from previous Ford color options such as Highland Green, Squeeze Green, Ultimate Green and Gotta Have It Green.
