These initial markets were chosen based on criteria including existing hybrid purchase trends, utility company collaborations, and the local governments' commitment to electrification.

Ford will also be developing consumer outreach in those areas, which began with their new website at FordVehicles.com/technology/electric.

The Focus Electric will release in those areas sometime in late 2011.

And so ...

The Focus Electric has specs similar to the Nissan Leaf.
