The EPA has finished its usual gauntlet of tests and has found that this year’s Ford Focus Electric is the most efficient five-seater in America. The agency certified that it gets 105 miles to the electric equivalent to the gallon (divided between 110MPGe in the city and 99MPGe on the highway), which is better than Ford’s own claim of just 100MPGe. The company’s found cause to celebrate the milestone and throw a few jabs at its closest rival, the Nissan Leaf. In fact, you could say that the House that Henry built has a bit of a complex about the leafy EV — in the press release we’ve got for you after the break, it mentions the rival vehicle no less than nine times.
