Focus Extreme Weather Testing

Wed Jan 12, 2011 5:13 pm

Here's some photos of the Focus Electric being tested at an extreme weather facility to make sure the battery pack and the rest of the car's components can handle the cold and hot weather it could encounter out in the real world.

Ha sorry about that!

I thought I had found the link through the news section on this forum, but now I can't find it.

This refers to the Focus in general, not the Focus Electric specifically:

Don't get me wrong, I still like the pictures! I think we are going to have to wait a bit for any battery/performance data.

Curious, how can you tell it's not the ford focus electric? I can't tell if there's a charge port on the side because it's a picture of the front of the Ford Focus.

Is it because it's right hand drive?

Look at the grill in the pic then compare it to the FFE in the top banner.
