Today’s video review covers the pros and cons of the 2015 Ford Focus. This is an excellent review created and offered by the automotive devision over at CNET. Here’s a quick overview before we get to the video…
PROS The Ford Focus Electric delivers on its estimated range. The torquey, electric acceleration makes the compact hatchback feel responsive. The base model is about as fully-loaded as the Focus gets.
CONS The 76-mile range is less than that of the newer competition from Fiat and Kia. The battery protrudes into the rear storage space. None of the standard Focus’ driver-aid features are available on the Electric.
CONCLUSIONS Three years after its predecessor debuted, the 2015 Ford Focus Electric is still a good choice for a compact battery-powered car, but the newer competition offers slightly greater range and faster charging.

Water pumps. We don’t think about them often, but they’re a really important part of our vehicles. Let’s take a step back. You see, the engine is cooled by a coolant, anti-freeze, mixed with water. This mixture circulates around your engine, absorbing some of the heat. The coolant then flows through the radiator, where air cools it down for the return trip back through the engine. The water pump is what drives this process.
The 2015 KIA Soul EV is the all electric version of the new KIA Soul. With a range of 94 miles and a 105 MPG, this new electric car is KIA’s first crack at an EV. Like many other manufacturers KIA plans to sell the 2015 KIA Soul EV only in California. Hopefully other states will follow soon! If a quality all-electric car with satisfactory range were available here in the Phoenix area, would it be a serious consideration for your next car purchase?
