Ford Focus Electric Teaser Released

American manufacturer Ford is gearing up for the introduction of the first passenger vehicle from the new breed, with the electric version of the new Focus to show its face at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) which takes place in Las Vegas a few days from now.

The model will be officially introduced by the company's CEO, Alan Mulally, who is a keynote speaker at the event. Until the car is presented though, on January 7, the car maker released today on the vehicle's Facebook page the first, non-revealing teaser for the car.

The details surrounding the car have not yet been released, but given the current limitations car makers have to face when it comes to building EVs, it's not hard to guess what the car will pack under its body.

According to initial information, the electric Focus will be capable of traveling 100 miles on a single charge of the LG Chem-supplied lithium-polymer batteries. The car will be launched on the market just right after the consumers' appetite has been enticed by the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf, in 2012.

Ford takes the opportunity to present the electric version of the new Focus at CES because the car has been selected the official car of the event. The car was selected because the model is packed with technology, including Ford SYNC, MyFord Touch driver connect, Intelligent Access with Push Button Start, Sony Audio with HD Radio (the first car in its class available with a Sony system) and Active Park Assist.
