Ford is investing $4.5 billion to produce 13 new electrified vehicles by 2020, one of which will be a new Focus Electric, the automaker has announced.

The Focus Electric, which starts production late next year, will offer a 100-mile range and employ DC fast-charge capability so drivers can reach an 80% charge in an estimated 30 minutes.

The Focus Electric will also include a SmartGauge with EcoGuide LCD instrument cluster that offers customizable displays to help the driver see real-time EV power usage to maximize vehicle efficiency. The vehicle will also include Brake Coach, which coaches the driver to use smooth braking to maximize the energy captured through a regenerative braking system.
