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.

Did you know that the typical V6 ignition system generates one hundred and fifty sparks per second at three thousand RPM? And that each spark event is precisely timed to within milliseconds? Your vehicles’ ignition system operates using sophisticated computer controls. Sensors provide the engine management computer with crankshaft speed and position. The computer uses this information to accurately trigger the ignition coils.
That mechanical marvel under the hood of your car called a “motor” or “engine” is a large machine made up of hundreds of smaller parts, systems and subsystems. They all work together turning air and fuel into thousands of small explosions, which move your car down the road, getting you from point A to point B. If it seems complex, you’re right, it is.
