Few other details of the car have been revealed, but Ford says the car will share 'much of the steering, handling and braking feel' of the standard car.

Visitors to the 2012 Geneva motor show will have the chance to drive the electric Focus, as well as try out Ford's SYNC infotainment connectivity system.
