On Friday 22 June 2012, I did something I have never done before in my entire 44+ years of life.
I bought a Ford Focus—an all-electric, battery-powered Ford Focus.
One of the amazing thing about this car—which I leased for three years rather than bought to own outright—is indeed the fact that it does NOT use a single drop of gasoline. But I was previously one of 500 "pioneers" for BMW/Mini and drove an all-electric Mini Cooper for a year. So, as a pioneering techie, an all-electric is nothing terribly exciting to me. (Exciting, yes. But not completely earth-shattering!)
