Ford’s Focus Electric Will Have SunPower Solar-Electric Option

Posted Aug 10, 2011

Ford Motor Company plans to boost the ranks of solar-powered electric vehicles by offering SunPower to Focus Electric owners. The Focus Electrics will start shipping to 19 initial markets in December, rolling out the SunPower offer simultaneously. Forbes reports that the system will cost about $10,000 (with 30% federal tax credit) and generate about 3,000 kilowatt hours a year. Ford has yet to announce the price for the car itself.
