10 Greenest Cars of 2013

3. 2013 Ford Focus Electric

MSRP: $32,900

Miles per gallon: 110 city, 99 highway, 105 combined.

Electric charge range: 76 miles

By taking the frame of its popular, existing focus, stripping out the combustion engine and giving it all the cool electronic and mobile-based features EV owners have come to expect, Ford's begun the arduous task of carving a niche for itself in this increasingly crowded market.

How do you do that, you ask? By taking aim at the other cost-effective electric car on the road. While the Focus Electric is a full $11,000 more expensive than the Nissan Leaf, the company takes great pains to point out that its high-capacity charger can juice up the Focus in half the time it takes the Leaf to get a full charge. During a time electric vehicle advancements are occurring incrementally and U.S. drivers' patience with range and charging is still being tested, the Focus' familiarity and fast charging speed may be the deciding factor.
