California and New York/New Jersey markets will be the first to experience limited quantities of the Focus Electric. As production increases, the Focus will be available in 15 other launch markets.

In a Ford press release, the automaker said that drivers who “want to go completely gasoline-free will be able to configure the all-new 2012 Ford Focus Electric online at Ford.com and place their orders with a certified electric vehicle dealer.”

Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Orlando, Phoenix, Seattle and Washington, D.C. are among the markets to receive the all-new Focus Electric. The automaker chose these launch markets based on “commuting patterns, existing hybrid purchase trends, utility-company collaboration and local-government commitment to electrification,” Ford explained.

The Focus Electric will be the automaker’s first all-electric passenger vehicle planned to launch in North America by next year. Powered exclusively by a new lithium-ion battery system, the Focus Electric will allow drivers to never need a drop of gas ever again. The sedan is designed to help reduce energy loss and heat generation, while reducing the driver’s carbon footprint.
