1. I’M PLANNING A 120-MILE ROAD TRIP—CAN I CHARGE UP ALONG THE WAY?
Using MyFord® Mobile, the standard smartphone app for Focus Electric owners, drivers can select specially created MapQuest routes that show every charge station along your route. Additionally, Ford is working directly with metropolitan areas across the country to support having public charge stations for electric vehicles.
2. WHAT CAN I DO TO MAXIMIZE MY VEHICLE RANGE?
Just like fuel economy, range is all about energy efficiency. To get the most miles per charge from your Focus Electric, practice these easy steps: Keep tires properly inflated to decrease rolling resistance; brake smoothly to transfer energy back to the battery via regenerative braking technology; and use MyFord Mobile’s unique Trip Planner option to pinpoint the most economical path for your trip.
3. WILL EXTREME WEATHER LIMIT MY BATTERY LIFE?
The lithium-ion battery that powers Focus Electric uses an advanced liquid cooling and heating process to maximize battery life, so you can get the most miles out of any charge at any time.
