2011 Focus Info

Quoted From: http://consumerguideauto.howstuffwor...ford-focus.htm

Im sure some of you already seen that page but I'll throw some quotes in.


HYBRID FOCUS:
Quote:
We haven't heard any official word on a gas-electric hybrid version of the Focus, but Ford has confirmed that a full-electric version will go on sale in North America during 2011. A so-called Battery-Electric Vehicle (BEV), the all-electric Focus is being developed in partnership with auto supplier Magna International and will be built in Michigan. Details are still sketchy, but Ford is suggesting a possible 100-mile range using a lithium-ion battery pack that can be charged through a 110-volt or 220-volt outlet.
A Notable Feature of the 2011 Ford Focus:
Quote:
A good many Americans could be downsizing their rides in the coming years, but they won’t want to sacrifice safety or convenience features for higher mpg and lower emissions. Ford is well aware of this from decades of doing business in Europe, where feature-laden, tech-filled compact cars are strong sellers. We thus expect the 2011 Ford Focus to have more standard equipment and a longer option list than today’s U.S. models. It will still be a competitively priced mainstream compact, but luxury features should proliferate to ease any buyer pain associated with going small. There also may be profit-boosting gimmicks and gizmos, though it’s too early to say exactly what those might be.

2011 Ford Focus Release Date:
Quote:
Ford recently announced that 4- and 5-door versions of the new European Focus will start North American production in late 2010. So the 2011 Ford Focus should be out of the gate by spring of 2011.

2011 Ford Focus First Test Drive:
Quote:
Again, assuming all goes well--including model-year 2011 timing--media previews could be set for the fourth quarter of 2010.

2011 Ford Focus Prices:
Quote:
Inflation keeps making everything more expensive, so a Focus will certainly cost more in the next decade than it does now. How much more? That’s tough to predict so far in advance, but we’d guess prices will start around $17,000, about $3,000 above today’s minimum, and range into the mid-$20,000s with a hefty option load. The BEV version will probably cost even more than a loaded gas-powered Focus. If that sounds like a lot for a small Ford, keep in mind that the Focus arrived eight years ago starting just under $12,000.
Like i said kinda old from August but some people might of not seen it

Pictures of what it might look like, Also possible specs.

Definitely interested to see how things go with the BEV version. Would be nice to get a better range then the Chevy Volt on one charge.

FYI: that picture is a 2008 (current) Euro Focus. The 2011 will not look like that.

From what I have heard the Chevrolet Volt predicted some outrageous mileage out of one tank or charge or whatever that silly thing runs on.... I thinking there just pulling it out there butts or something....anyone please feel free to comment me I am just only learning on how the volt works.

As far as the electric focus is concerned, it would be a huge leap from fords division big time.
