Finally FORD is getting into the act! by Kilibreaux on 06/26/2012. Trim: 2012 Ford Focus Electric Electric.

Pros: It's 100% electric! That means: No GAS, no OIL, no coolant, no radiator, no filters, no exhaust system, no oil changes. The "engine" (motor) has exactly ONE moving part - compare that to a reciprocating mess that is only "refined" in the sense that we've been stuck with it for so long, it has "evolved" into something usable yet still terribly INeffcient.
Cons: Nothing! Well, the PRICE could be lower because that would put more buyers in the seat earlier. I'm not sure if the pricing schedule is part of the overall "scheme" of the oil-dominated auto industry to "play like" they are seriously marketing alternative vehicles to gasoline, while pricing them just high enough so a year or two down the road when sales are lackluster they can cancel the vehicle and claim, "See, we told you nobody wanted electric cars!" We hear all about how expensive are the batteries for these cars yet everyone seems blissfully ignorant to all the STUFF left out - not needed. Electric motor tech is not new, and neither is any other part of what goes into an electric car.
Overall review: Wonderful execution of a GREAT idea for the future!
