New Ford EV takes bow at Hopkins
The new Ford Focus Electric will be in town today (Tuesday) to see and test drive at Johns Hopkins University. It's not due on the market until early next year, but it'll be one of five Ford vehicles on display at an event examining the issues around electrification of travel and other fuel-efficient transportation.
There'll be a presentation and discussion from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., followed by demonstrations and vehicle test drives until 1:30 p.m. The event, part of a nationwide Ford tour touting its products, is cosponsored by the Baltimore Electric Vehicle Initiative and the Hopkins Office of Sustainability.
Hopkins has hosted a trot-out of the Chevy Volt in advance of its going on sale as well. The school also recently installed five EV charging stations on campus.
The event will be at Hopkins' Visitor Center in Mason Hall, 3100 Wyman Park Drive. Visitor parking is available nearby. For a map, go here. Those interested in a test drive or attending are asked to RSVP to Michael Phillips at email@example.com or 434.760.4485.
