Ford Confirms 8 year/100k mile Battery Warranty

APR 26 2012 BY MARC LEE 1

Wesley Sherwood in Ford Communications confirmed in an email that Ford will offer an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty on the battery of the Focus Electric.

I asked Wes if he could comment on what specifically Ford would guarantee with that warranty.  Will post a response if I get one.

A prospective buyer had noticed that his Monroney Sticker for the Focus Electric he had ordered was listing the “powertrain” warranty at 5 year/60k miles, and was showing the same info.

Here is the text of the email:

Hi Marc,

I can help with your question.  We will offer an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty for the Focus Electric battery and EV-specific components such as the motor.  I hope that helps, and please let me know if you have other questions.  Thank you.


Wes Sherwood

It sounds like a screw up in information between the dealer, and Ford corporate. Since it the Focus EV is essentially “just” a Focus with an electric “engine,” it doesn’t surprise me that the dealers (and others) would is the warranty info as the same or similar to other Focuses.

I’ve said it on Ford’s Ford Electric Vehicle Facebook page before and I’ll keep saying it:

Ford’s local dealerships will be the DEATH of the Focus EV… 🙁
