It’s been known that although alternative fuel vehicles are traditionally more expensive, the effort to minimize emissions and the considerable amount of gas money saved during ownership easily has made up for the cost. Now, with gas prices at an average low compared to even last spring, the electric and hybrid vehicles are becoming a wee bit cheaper, too. Just another reason to get electric!
Ford is lowering the sticker price for the battery-powered plug-in Ford Focus Electric by $6,000, even after the $4,000 price drop a year ago. The new price, without federal tax credits and state incentives, is down to $29,995. Partially due to the lowering cost-to-own of a standard car and partially because of the less than steady demand of the vehicle, Ford is hoping the lowered cost will spike interest and help bring some attention back to the gas alternative movement.
The Ford Focus Electric allows you to enjoy gas-free driving, getting all of it’s power from a state-of-the-art 23 kWh liquid-cooled, lithium-ion battery. The all-electric motor is designed to reduce energy loss and heat generation, all while comforting you with a simple method of reducing your carbon footprint.
