Ford and Microsoft Talk Focus Electric Tech

Ford and Microsoft are talking about the new Focus Electric car that will be landing in dealer showrooms later this year at the Future and Review Conference this week. Ford is taking a chance to talk about the fact that the Focus Electric is able charge in half the time that the Nissan Leaf takes. The faster charging is attributed to a higher capacity onboard charger for the Ford vehicle.

Ford is also talking about the fact that it's cheaper to charge a focus Electric than a Leaf thanks to the Microsoft tech used in the MyFord Mobile app. The app will allow the user to see how much power is in the battery packs inside the car and choose when the car charges so electricity can be purchased during off-peak hours at a lower rate. The app also lets drivers choose driving routes and more.
