Come See the Ford Focus EV at the Los Vegas CES!

From the Ford Electric Vehicles Facebook Page:

On Friday at 11 AM PST, CEO Alan Mulally will have big news from the 2011 International CES in Las Vegas. We'll broadcast his keynote address on a Livestream tab on this page and have exclusive technology news every hour leading up to his address.

Although I've not mentioned it much before now, I'm very excited about the Ford Focus with an Electric-only Drive Train.  The more electric vehicles we have to choose from, the better we are off as consumers.  Ford has yet to announce the MSRP on the Focus EV, but rumor has it around $40,000, though this early in the game that could easily change.  Currently, the Focus EV is projected for model year 2012 release at the earliest, so initial sales could come as soon as a year from now.

I've been closely following the developments of the Focus EV and other affordable electric car alternatives that I hope to bring you in the coming months.  More so since I learned I'd have to wait 8 more months just to order another Electric Vehicle I've been considering.  Given this, the Ford Focus EV is one of the few EVs I believe to have a good chance to become the first generally available (in North America), affordable EVs!
