Ford Builds Special Focus EV For Jay Leno's New Show

September 9, 2009

The Jay Leno Comedy Show doesn't debut until next week, but details have already emerged about the program's "Green Car Challenge" (an eco-friendly version of Top Gear's "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" segment). Apparently, the vehicle that Tom Cruise and others will be driving is a very special battery electric version of the Ford Focus, built by Ford's hybrid and battery EV program in conjunction with Ford Racing. Sounds like a great set-up for the real thing. [Jalopnik]
