Ford Cuts Price of Focus Electric Car

Base cost is $36,000


Ford Motor is slicing $4,000 from the base price of its Focus electric car, beginning with 2014 models that arrive at dealers within a few weeks.

That cuts the Focus EV's base price to $35,995 including shipping.

Some buyers qualify for a $7,500 credit on federal income taxes, and states often have their own incentives for buying battery cars.
