What is the Ford Focus Electric Battery Degradation Like?

I’m considering buying the Ford Focus Electric, but I don’t know how long the battery lasts. Do you know what the Ford Focus Electric battery degradation is like?

We understand—ensuring your new purchase will stand the test of time is an important element of buying a new car! The
Ford Focus
Electric has a battery life of about eight years if you adhere to a regular
car maintenance schedule
and avoid letting your car’s battery sit uncharged for extended periods. The Focus Electric only has a three year/36,000 mile warranty, which means the warranty for most Focus Electrics has expired.
The Ford Focus Electric was at the top of the EV game back in its inaugural year of 2011, but since its discontinuation in 2018, there are more efficient options on the market (and they’ll likely last longer too)! For example, the
Volkswagen ID 4
is a compact EV SUV with an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty. Even so, this EV model is expected to last at least 300,000 to 400,000 miles before any major battery degradation issues set in.
