Will FFE get a battery upgrade soon?
Why am asking this question? The reason being is the Chevy Volt is getting a battery upgrade. Battery capacity is being increased from 16 Kwh to 16.5 Kwh. This is a 3.1 % increase in charge capacity. This was done by altering the battery chemisty slightly. Why is this of interest to the Ford Focus Electric future owners? Because the same battery company Compact Power makes both batteries. If this technology could be applied to the Focus battery pack, it would increase the packs charge capacity from 23 Kwh to 23.7 Kwh. Bringing the Focus battery pack size closer to the Leafs 24 Kwh pack.
