More news about the Next Gen Focus

Autoexpress (a UK based site) has a long report about the next version of the Focus and more spy photos.

One of the interesting tidbits there is the addition of a “Focus Energi” model. For those people who want a plugin car but are afraid of the range. This seems like it is a simple thing to do since the C-Max is essentially a taller Focus and they are built at the same plant.

The article mentions about a 25 mile EV only range on the “Focus Energi” (The C-Max gets something like 21 miles). I think that its possible that it would get even more miles than that–perhaps a 30 mile EV only range (making it directly competitive with the Volt to some degree).

The article also mentions that the fully electric Focus will also continue to be produced. Hopefully this is true especially in light of the fact of the Energi version (I can easily see them killing the Electric one because the Energi version “has that covered” to some degree).

Wow, check out the taillights:

Looks like a cluster of 3 gun barrels shooting back at the car behind it! LOL

We’ll find out for real in March (I was hoping that they would reveal the next Focus in Detroit though)….

(Keep in mind that most of the information in that article is pure speculation as no official Ford source is mentioned at all–all they have to go on is the few spy photos and an “inside source”.)
