Ford Focus Electric is the Most Maintenance Free Ford Ever
 
 

EVs are big on the market today as are hybrid cars with the government offering big tax incentives to get people to buy cars with better economy. There are certainly some big benefits to EVs, but there are drawbacks like low driving range.

Ford has unveiled its Focus Electric and the car is the most maintenance free Ford ever. The electric motor has few moving parts and little scheduled maintenance. The car never needs an oil change saving $450 over the life of a car. That is only about a year's worth of oil changes for some people.

Ford says that checking washer fluid and tire pressure is just about all the owner will need to do. Over the life of the car, maintenance needed will include things like tire replacement, new brake pads, and shock replacement over time. Get that electric driving range up to about 200 miles per charge and let the car charge in a few hours and I'll be interested.
