Ford Focus EV To Debut At CES Las Vegas

This week Ford teased the imminent unveiling of the Focus EV  by releasing a single image on Facebook  showcasing the vehicle’s illuminated, Tron-like plug port. As you’d expect from Ford on the release of such an anticipated vehicle, details are scarce — but CEO Alan Mulally said the company will have big news from the 2011 International CES Las Vegas . He added that Ford would broadcast his keynote address on a live streaming Facebook tab that will also feature exclusive technology news every hour leading up to his address.
The decision to debut the Focus EV at CES Las Vegas — instead of the Detroit Auto Show, which is a week away — has also led to speculation that the Ford Focus EV will boast some impressive technology. Rumors include MyTouch , numerous iPhone/iPod/iPad apps, and lithium-polymer batteries that will offer a range of 100 miles.
The Ford Focus EV will be America’s third highway-capable electric vehicle after the Nissan Leaf  and the Chevrolet Volt , both of which generate a lot of press. The Ford Focus EV will go on sale later in the year.
