Re: Trunk with battery pack in the Ford Focus Electric

Thu Apr 07, 2011 5:53 am

You also have to remember that the Focus EV will be the hatchback model with folding rear seats -- for us we would only need the truck space for errand running (with just two on board) so would simply pull the package shelf cover out (appears to be very similar to the one on our Mazda3 5-door hatch) and fold the rear seats when we expect to pick up something more than just a few groceries. It will not have a flat floor like the ICE Focus but should still have sufficient space. I'm also curious on the expected battery replacement 'expectation', although out in the rust belt the body will probably give out before the battery does!
