  2. All-Electric: The Ford Focus Electric is 100% electric which means no gasoline engine, zero carbon dioxide emissions, fewer maintenance costs, and a tiny carbon footprint.
  3. Hybrids: The Ford C-MAX and Fusion Hybrid are powered by a gas engine and battery-driven electric motor simultaneously. Energy from braking is recaptured to recharge the battery as you drive.

No! You can charge your Electric or Plug-In Hybrid vehicle anywhere that there is a traditional 120-volt power outlet. However, Ford does suggest having a 240-Volt charging station installed in your home for faster, and less expensive, charging times. These charging stations may be installed in your home by Best Buy’s Geek Squad.

In addition to available 240-Volt outlets installed in your home by Best Buy’s Geek Squad, there are public charging stations in Phelps County and all major Missouri Cities. For a list, click here.

Ford has developed several new, environmentally-friendly materials to be used in the production of their vehicles. For example, over 31,250 soybeans are used in the cloth seats, 2 average sized pairs of American Blue Jeans provide dampening material, and 38.9 plastic bottles is recycled into Repreve (c) fibers for flooring panels.
