I did a little digging (because I was curious and want to put the LED taillights in my ST3) and the Focus Electric taillights have a different taillight carrier harness but the connector that plugs into the car is identical to the standard 2013 Focus. Both are 5 wire, I think it's believable that this could be a plug and play swap. New Ford Taillights would come with the new carrier harness and I would expect them be in the $500-$600 range for a pair when they go into production in February 2013... If you could buy them today they could be had for $415 but I expect the prices to climb over the next few months as they get closer to being available.
