Ford Focus Electric
A drive through Germany in the newly released Ford Focus Electric. Great car, great butterflies, great conversation, interesting pricing. Mar 2014
Robert Llewellyn later commented.
"This has been one of the hardest videos for me to make.
I want to start off by re-stating that the Ford Focus Electric is a great car.
The engineers, PR people and support staff are 100% behind the vehicle.
Ford also produces a range of hybrid and plug in hybrid vehicles.
I did drive the C-MAX Energi plug-in-hybrid which is another great car and I predict will sell well but it's not currently available in the UK.
However the high pricing of the Focus Electric just feels a bit 2010.
I'm sure there are multiple reasons as to why it's so much more expensive than the petrol model but there are much cheaper similar size/range/quality electric cars available that are MUCH cheaper."
The video features an interesting conversation between Robert and Sabine Flanz, Ford Europe, on hydrogen fuel cells and fuel efficiency. Sabine is an engineer who has worked on hydrogen fuel cell development.
