Ford's multipronged Focus Electric intro at the Consumer Electronics Show included big news on the charging front, as the automaker aimed a couple of darts at competitor Nissan Leaf.

Ford said it would hook up with Best Buy to sell and install 240-volt home charging stations for $1,499 - around $700 less than what Nissan is selling Leaf charging stations for through its car dealers. Moreover, Ford said, because the Focus Electric comes with a 6.6-kilowatt charger, it can be fully juiced "in three to four hours - charging in half the time as the Nissan Leaf."
