The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford Focus Electric is fun to drive, though its range is lower than the Nissan Leaf and others; its "regular car" looks may appeal to some, but it's sold only in small numbers in a handful of markets. The 2016 Kia Soul EV compares well to other small battery-electric cars, and its interior volume and slightly higher range give it an edge—but you can only buy one in limited areas.
