Ford's battery electric Focus, set to be released by 2012, might not look exactly like gasoline-powered Focus models. Instead, it may vaguely resemble something out of the movie Tron.
We already know a few other details about the Focus. The vehicle will feature an in-dash navigational computer that decides when it should recharge and for how long. Ford's Focus also has a a 23kWh lithium-ion battery that allows for a range of 100 miles per charge. The car will go on sale later this year in a number of U.S. cities, including Atlanta, Austin, Houston, Boston, Chicago.
