Standard FORD Focus controller
Batteries23 FORD , 0.00 Volt, Lithium-Ion
The batteries seem to be holding up very well.
LG high capacity with liquid cooling.

No lose at all in 3 HOT Years. They should last
20 years at 80% or Better
System Voltage300 Volts
Charger FORD on board 6.6 KW
Seems to work fine on 240. The car will only
cool or charge on 120 vac. So in the extreme
Southern US heat you may not get much on the
120 cord.
It has a standard J1772 240 v connector but no
Fast Charger option yet.
HeaterFORD standard
DC/DC Converter FORD

very fast
Range76 Miles (122 Kilometers)
I still get 100-130 miles on the guess o meter
but never run to the limit. The batteries are
still 100% after 3 hot Phoenix summers.
Watt Hours/Mile180 Wh/Mile
I average 5-6 miles per watt hour.
That shows as 180 whr/mile
EV Miles
Current:21,000 Miles (33,789 Kilometers)
    As of 8/17/2015
Seating Capacity5 adults, split rear seats for good storage room
Curb Weight3,624 Pounds (1,647 Kilograms)
Additional FeaturesBOSE sound system
blue tooth cell phone connection
satellite radio
The best part is the battery cooling. In 3 years of use in the
Phoenix heat I have not lost any battery capacity. Compared to our
LEAF this battery may last 20 years.

We will see after our 3 year lease continues.
