On the important question of range, the Focus will probably be the first of the pair to fall short. Its official NEDC range is 100 miles, while the Leaf manages 124. My fully charged Focus itself predicted just 64 miles of range on startup, presumably based on the driving styles of previous occupants.
The instrument panel fitted to the Focus Electric is clear and simple, with twin digital screens laid out either side of a central analogue speedo. Information on the screens can be configured to provide various forms of feedback on energy flows and even coaching to help improve your regenerative braking. And while careful Leaf drivers can grow little digital trees, attentive Focus pilots can release digital butterflies, apparently.
