Want to be one of the first to snag a new all-electric Ford Focus? Here’s hoping you live in Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, New York, Orlando, Phoenix, Tucson, Seattle, Portland, Oregon.; Raleigh Durham, North Carolina; Richmond, Virginia., or Washington, D.C.
According to a recent release, these are the markets where the automaker will be rolling out the spanky new electric version of its popular Ford Focus, based on existing hybrid purchase trends, utility company collaboration and a commitment to electrification on the part of the local government.
As part of its collaboration with dealerships who’ll be carrying the new car (as well as its partnerships with utilities and local governments, as reported during the car-maker’s recent cross-country electric vehicle tour) Ford will help to develop consumer outreach and education programs on electric vehicles in these areas as well.
Will the Focus Electric see as many first-time Ford buyers as the hybrid Fusion? That remains to be seen.
