fordOne of the top in car mobile technologies available for some time now is Ford’s Sync system which we must admit is pretty impressive. Ford is however taking it a step further with the launch of their new Focus Electric allowing users to control their cars remotely.

At CES 2012 in Las Vegas Ford unveiled their MyFord app that allows Ford Focus Electric owners manage when and how their cars will charge at home. This allows night time low charging for lower electricity bills or to override this and charge up quickly if you need the car for a long period of time now.
