Ford Motor Co. seems to be playing with everyone’s nerves by announcing the Focus EV in the United States this year, than delaying it to next year and now saying that their compact electric vehicle will hit the over-seas auto market by the end of 2011.

According to the car manufacturer, the Focus EV will arrive by the end of this year in California and New York, then in markets such as Atlanta, Chicago, Houston and Washington.

The Ford Focus Electric is powered by a 100 kW electric motor and a 223 kWh battery, delivering together 123 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, with a range of 100 miles and a 84 mph top speed.

The new electric vehicle wearing the Ford badge has been officially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January and according to the automaker charging it takes less than Nissan’s Leaf, 3-4 hours.
