New 2011 Focus and Focus EV
The Michigan assembly plant will start producing the all new US version of the next Focus next year, as a 2011 model.
The battery-electric Focus will be for the US market only.
The top picture is yet another illustration of what the new Focus might look like. But the bottom one is official from Ford.
Not sure if it really shows the next Focus or not….

Looks too good to be true! I just hope that Ford has enough balls to release both a 2 and 4 door hatchback version here in the states and not just in Canada! We really could use more than just another 4 door sedan!
Pretty sure the grid car is the current yank Focus judging by the front bumper.
God that is beautiful.
I really hope that they don’t water this down for the US. We have a tendency to take a nice design and destroy it with hundreds of cupholders, cheap interior plastic, and gargantuan seats for our fat American asses.
Please Ford, I beg you, leave this exactly as the Europeans get it.
Unbelievable : I like it !
Looks much better than the new Mazda 3 hatch..
Get it here ASAP!
i sell kias and they are poor quality, didn’t ford own kia? now hyundai does? wtf is goin’ on . anyhoo , let’s call a spade a spade, all Kia employees are low end rejects that lost jobs at other dealerships. Kia stores are the garbage bin of the auto industry.
Just how much bigger is this in comparison to the Fiesta? I’m just wondering how much extra room you’d get for the price premium.
I am consider in trading my 2007 Honda Civic EX sedan for either a top line Fiesta hatch or the next generation Focus. If the new model looks anything like this it will be in my driveway. I have owned many fords over the last 30 years and NEVER had a mechanical problem with any of them. Ford is the only domestic manufacture I would consider at this point. I am alos looking to test drive the highest trim line of the Cruze when if finally comes to market, but if the Focus/fiesta lives up to my expectations one of those cars will be my next purchase.
Give me that exact car, in that color, with a sporty version (like a 2.5l with a 6 speed manual) and I will buy it if it is priced right around the $20-21k mark.
I love my ’07 Mazda 3 but I hate the goofy grin of the new one. Since the Ford should basically have the same dynamics, I’d buy it in a heartbeat in 2011 or 2012.

LMAO. A little self-esteem goes a long way.
I love it!!!
I hope that they bring an ST variant over here because I need more power than the regular model has…

You realize you just called yourself a reject who can’t hold a job, right?
Finally the car i have been waiting for.
