Arguably the least-proven of the five candidates, the Ford Focus Electric is the Blue Oval’s freshman effort in the electric car field. It still doesn’t have an EPA rating (though that should be coming any day) though it does have a $39,995 price tag before tax credits. It also lacks Level 3 charging capability, but is loaded with technology and standard features other competitors lack. But will people really buy a $40,000 Focus?
Verdict: The Long Shot
