2012 Ford Focus Electric

The Auto Channel - February 7, 2013

NHTSA awarded the 2013 Ford Focus Elec­tric a five-star Over­all Vehi­cle Score in its New Car Assess­ment Pro­gram (NCAP) test­ing. The Focus Elec­tric was designed with safety in mind with its airbags and Advance­Trac with elec­tronic sta­bil­ity con­trol.
The driver’s airbag uses a recon­fig­ured curve-shaped tether sys­tem that pulls in the lower sec­tion to cre­ate a “pocket” to help lessen the impact of the airbag on the driver.
