Ford has yet to provide the 2012 Ford Focus Electric vehicle to the federal government and insurance agencies for crash tests.

What we can say about the Ford Focus Electric's safety systems is that the Focus Electric vehicle will come with siz air bags and electronic traction control. The Focus Electric will also come with the MyKey system which allows parents to limit speed and stero volume when their teens are driving the car. ... 1098_1.jpg
