I disagree. There is no need for a bare bones Focus Electric. Ford isn't in the EV business to sell cheap basic transportation like GM's Chevy Spark or a bare bones Leaf.
If you compare the top of the line Leaf to the leather Focus Electric, you are looking at more like $5K difference, and the lease price difference is flipped; the Focus Electric is MUCH lower. The top-of-the-line Leaf leases a 39 month for $590 per month. That is compared to something less than $300 a month for 36 months for the Focus Electric.
So, no, the Focus Electric doesn't need to compete with a Leaf on price. I drove the Leaf; it drives like an appliance. The difference between the cars is shocking. Heh, heh.
