Video: The making of Jay Leno’s Green Car Challenge Focus


Jay's Green Car Challenge is a bit derivative as you probably know.

So Jay Leno took the concept from the highly popular BBC show Top Gear, so what?

But he did tweak it a bit by making the car electric…with the help of Ford of course.

"The electric Focus weighs in at a portly 3,421 pounds due in part to
the vehicle's 98 air-cooled, 60 Ah lithium ion batteries. The electric
motor kicks out 141 hp (105 kW) and 235 lb-ft of torque and has a 7,500
rpm redline," according to

So how did the all EV Focus used on the show come together and how does it drive?
