Ford’s Electric Ford Focus

Although Ford’s newest eco friendly car isn’t even released yet, the automaker doesn’t want to miss out on all of the hype that’s currently surrounding electric cars. The 2012 all electric Ford Focus is coming out later this year, and will feature state of the art technology to go along with it, but if a driver’s city doesn’t have readily available electric car charging stations it doesn’t make much difference.

That is why Ford has released the above pictured map, with the 25 American cities which are most prepared for the surge of electric vehicles that is sure to come.

  • Seattle
