All-New Ford Focus Electric: The Most Maintenance-Free Ford Ever

CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2011 When it comes to maintenance, the all-new Ford Focus Electric rewrites the owners manual.

The battery electric drivetrain in the Focus Electric reduces the number of moving mechanical components compared with a conventional internal combustion-engined vehicle. And that means Focus Electric drivers will spend far less time and money on maintenance.

Here are the top 25 items that usually require inspection, maintenance or replacement during the 10-year, 150,000-mile life of a conventional car that the driver of a Ford Focus Electric will never have to worry about:

Air filter
Fuel filter
Fuel injectors/fuel pump
Motor mounts
Motor oil
Oil filter
O2 sensors
Power steering fluid
