2,400+ Ford Focus Electric Recalled
Ford has noted 16 cases of mobility loss, and the NHTSA did its own investigation, noting 171 individual incidents noting loss of motive power. It’s a pretty big deal for a car with such a low take rate, and Ford hasn’t done much to promote the Focus Electric behind the big price cut. Ford is instead focusing its efforts on hybrids and turbo engines, with the Focus Electric merely slotting in as a compliance car.
