Yes, I can see what you mean. BUT ...
"Going green has a whole new meaning now that Ford has unveiled the new 2018 Focus Electric. And when we say new, we mean it, because the 2018 Ford Focus Electric features an all-new Outrageous Green Metallic exterior color option as well as an all-new optimized driving range. What that means for you is that the new Ford Focus Electric will be more stylish than ever before with a driving range that blows away the 2017 model year version."

In 2017 the battery went from 23KWh to 32.5KWh, and the range jumped from 76 to 118 miles. Increasing range without increasing battery size would mean a drastic
improvement in efficiency. So my 160 mile guess doesn't seem likely.
Still, any improvement in efficiency would be an improvement. With all the other electric cars going past 200 miles is seems Ford is sucking fumes.
The current 2017 model has an estimated range of 96 freeway miles. My one-way commute to work is 23-26, miles depending on the route. Even if I stick with the shortest route that's 92 miles in 2 days. That's cutting it pretty close if I want to charge at work every other day. I could just charge at work every day but I don't know how much of a PIA that will be.
