That's the original published range, much like the Leaf had a published range of 100 mi. However, the Leaf hardly does better than 70 IRL. It seems to be the same with the Focus. Mulally said on Letterman that the eFocus would have a range of ~80 mi.

I don't see the problem if the range really is 100 miles. This would be perfect if you live an urban area and have no need to travel long distances for entertainment, shopping, dining, etc. For the average person in a situation like this I think a vehicle like this could replace a standard gas vehicle for 90% of their driving. I think there is a market for this, there are plenty of people who want to be "green." Most people fail to realize when buying a electric car that the power that charges there batteries pollute causes pollution too, coal power anyone. Even if I had $40k I wouldn't buy it but that's just me. I would consider a more affordable hybrid for the fuel savings though.
