Here's An Outrageous Ford Focus Electric

Ford is rolling out a new color on the 2018 Ford Focus Electric. The color is appropriately named “Outrageous Green Metallic,” a color that honors Pantone’s color of the year, Greenery.

Barb Whalen, Ford color and materials design manager, explains why Ford decided to go outrageous with this color.

“Designers are encouraged to experience a feeling, bring it to the team, then collectively brainstorm ways to bring it to life through a paint color or material for Ford vehicles,” says Whalen. “Outrageous Green Metallic is a unique shade, symbolizing modern renewal and a reconnection with nature, then finished with a special tinted clear coat to give the color depth and vibrancy.”

Along with the new hue, the 2017 model of the Focus Electric features an increase in battery juice. With the battery storage increased to 33.5 kWh, the 2017 and 2018 model can go 115 miles on a charge. That’s an increase from 76 miles on the 2016 model.

    I like it. It would be easy to find in the parking lot as well I would think.:)

    Yawn. Seems like a lot of hoopla for a color quite similar to the existing green already available on the Fiesta.

    My Bro-in-law purchased a used Fiesta in that obnoxious green quite cheaply as the dealer couldn't sell it to anyone else.
